These comparative figures were taken from the website, which tracks trends in the local housing market by analysing the number, type and price of properties sold every month. The site also ranks local estate agents by two factors: average price of the properties sold and the average selling time per property. This may be a helpful feature for potential buyers and sellers selecting an agent.

If you are buying or selling, has area guides, street rankings, house price trends and property for sale. It can also calculate a valuation range for individual properties.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) publishes regular comments, surverys and forecasts on its website. See for more information and latest reports on the housing market.
