Basingstoke House Prices


The increase in Basingstoke house prices is at least in part connected to the increase of population. Commuting is becoming more popular: avoiding high house prices in big cities and getting a little into the countryside. London’s average house prices reached £484,584 in April 20198, could Basingstoke’s creep up to that level? Other commuter towns in the area such as Reading and Woking have seen similar percentage increases to Basingstoke.

The beginning months of 2018 saw little increase and even a decrease on that of December 2017. It is almost as if April 2018 made up for the lack of increase and sky-rocketed in one fell swoop!

Semi-detached houses that are raising the average house price in the area. This type of property saw an increase of 6.1% on the previous year, whereas flats only saw an increase of 2.4%. This could mean that the area is popular for second-time buyers that have previously lived in the centre of big cities and want to commute.

Basingstoke Property Overview

Majority of Basingstoke’s development happened within the 1960s with it becoming an ‘expanded town’, like that of Milton Keynes. During the Second World War, Basingstoke was fortunate and didn’t see much damage, so much of the Victorian and earlier architecture, brought in with the arrival of the train station in 1839 that connected the town with London, still stands today.

Victorian housing can be found on Fairfields Road and Cromwell Road. There are also many Georgian properties still standing such as those on May’s Bounty and Penrith Road.

Vyne Park is a new development with one to five bedroom houses available. This has easy access to London as well as the houses being spacious and contemporary. Beckets Rise is a development of similar style and is one of the many new developments, as the town is continuing to grow.
