PROPERTIES in Grimsby are some of the cheapest in the country based on how much home you get for your cash.
Grimsby house buyers pay less than most others in the country with the average cost of a property standing at under £1,000 per square metre.
Data put together by freelance data scientist, Anna Powell-Smith, show that, based on 1,038 sales, people in the DN31 postcode area of Grimsby pay, on average, less than £800 per square metre of their homes.
That's compared to a huge £20,000 per square metre that home buyers in SW1X, Belgravia, and W1K, Mayfair, pay.
Out of 2,280 postcode districts analysed, the top 70 were all in central London and the first 100 were all in Greater London. The most expensive postcode district outside Greater London is OX2 in Oxford.
To work out the stats, sale prices have been taken from the Land Registry's price paid dataset of residential property sales to individuals since August 2007 and the floor area in square metre per property has been taken from Energy Performance Certificates (EPC).
The aggregate price per square metre for each postcode district is then calculated as the total price of all sales, divided by the total floor area of all properties.
