Statistics Project to Compare House Prices
Comparison of House Prices’ in two areas:
I believe that the house prices in the Consett area will be more
expensive that the house prices in the Washington area.
I obtained a list of seventy houses for each area. I decided to do
seventy, as I felt I would obtain a more accurate reading for my
report. I attained my information from the internet, from various
estate agents sites, www.harrington-brown.
www.Pattinson.co.uk . I have enclosed a copy of the houses, three from
each area, the cheapest, the most expensive and a middle priced house,
to show as examples.
The reason I chose Consett was because I have recently moved to this
area, and I felt it would be a to gain the knowledge of the
houses prices in and around my area. I chose Washington because I used
to live there. I felt it would be quite interesting to be able to
compare the prices of the two areas that I have lived in.
Another reason why I chose these areas is that, they are both outside
of Newcastle City Centre, about the same distance away, just in
opposite directions. So I felt that the prices would be valued at
around the same market prices for both areas. As you tend to find the
closer to the city centre you get, the more expensive the house, even
though the house may be smaller, have no garden and possibly be even a
worse area and state of house.
I also found that the houses in the
Consett area seem to be bigger inside and also have more space on the
outside (gardens), this would obviously indicate that Consett is more
rural that Washington.
I also looked at the schooling in both areas, one, because I had been
to schools in Washington and two, my son is in
Consett. I found that in both areas infant and junior schools were off
a very high standard, but senior schools in the Consett area were more
