Read below for some of the main differences between house types and their current prices. The average house price in England and Wales at the moment is around £312,068*. Historically that price appears to be rising as seen in the graph below.

*Latest complete data: February 2022

Detached house prices

Detached houses do not share walls with any other property, and are stand-alone structures. They usually have gardens in the front and the back of the property, and enjoy a greater level of privacy than other house types. The average price of a detached house in England and Wales is currently around £562,438. It is important to consider properties around a detached home when considering buying one.

Semi-detached house prices

Semi-detached houses share at least one wall with another property. Of course this massively reduces the price of these properties when compared to a detached property as they tend to have less outdoor space too. These are different to a link-detached house, which typically only shares a wall on the garage. The average price of a semi-detached house in England and Wales is around £358,218. When buying a semi-detached house it is important to think about the access rights and possible future extension plans of you and your neighbours.

Terraced house prices

Other than the "end-of-terrace" houses, these typically share walls on either side of the property. This creates a row of houses which is very efficient on space in urban areas and is therefore more common in those environments. Again the smaller outdoor area and shared walls reduce the average price of these properties down to £279,011 in England and Wales.

Flat prices

Flats are ideal for singles and small families. Typically without private gardens, they do sometimes offer shared facilities and are the most common type of rented property in the UK. Due to their small size and lack of private space their prices in England and Wales are amoungst the lowest in the UK, sitting around £184,190. Flats may come with additional hidden service charges, which affect the true cost of owning one.
