To start our property value guide, we want to summarise how prices are allocated in KT8 9 based on property type. To do this, we’ll inspect the price per square metre to assess the breakdown. We calculate the price per square metre by obtaining the price paid data from the Government’s site. We then divide the price by the property’s area.
This gives us the exact price per square metre paid. We group these prices into brackets (£1000-£1500) showing a property sold for a price per square metre between £1000 and £1500.
