Land Registry data provides a rich source for number-crunchers. Given the national interest in house prices, especially at the top end, we’ve done some number crunching of our own:


Sales of property priced over £1m+ over the years

  • Our data shows that between 2003 and 2013 there was a 270% increase in the number of property sales in the £1m+ bracket.
  • So far this year an average of 35 properties a day have sold for over £1m
  • The number of sales of properties for over £1m in 2013 was nearly the same as the total number for 2003, 2004 and 2005 combined
  • Numbers of sales of properties for over £1m has been increasing every year since 2009
