What do the market overlays show?

The market overlays give you an insight into buying and selling in a certain area. Here's how they work:

To get to the market overlays, simply click on the “Location Analysis” tab in the top right-hand corner. This will open up the analysis box, which you can then choose to expand the market section by clicking the small downward arrow.

This will, in turn, open up the list of available market overlays for you to choose from.

The market overlays include:

-Commercial Availability: Highlights commercial properties that are currently on the market for sale or To Let. This can now be filtered and property type is differentiated by colour!

-Average residential value (psf): This shows you an average of the £ per sqft pricing of houses sold in that area.

-Residential Yield: Gives you the average return on residential property investment. Click on the area you are interested in for a breakdown of the figures.

-Deprived Area Index: Shows the most to lease deprived areas, based on affluence, crime, green space etc.

-HMOs: Displays with a red dot, any HMOs that have been registered with the council. Click each dot for further info!

-Vacant Buildings: Displays properties currently fully or partially vacant, click the overlay to find out which specific units.
