Prices shoot upnear football grounds
HOUSE prices close to Premier League football grounds have soared by almost two and a half times over the last ten years, according to research by Halifax.
The average house price in the postal districts of the 20 clubs kicking off the new season has climbed by 135 per cent (£183,583) in the past decade. This is equivalent to a weekly rise of £353 and is double the 68 per cent increase in house prices across England and Wales as a whole over the period.
Homes close to Manchester City’s ground topped the table, with a 259 per cent rise. The area around promoted Hull City’s KC Stadium has seen the second biggest increase, with a rise in average property prices of 162 per cent.
