UK House Affordability Calculator


With house prices in some areas at all time highs, we have built a simple calculator to see where in the UK you can afford to purchase a property.

To use, simply enter your annual income, your deposit, the property type you would like to purchase, and the tool will show you where you can afford to buy!

The tool assumes you can borrow 4.5 times annual income. House prices are based on Dec 2020 prices.

This tool is just for information and just for fun – we’re data consultants, not financial advisors!

House price data is sourced from the ONS.

The spatial (geographic data) is sourced from

If it feels like housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable for those earning a salary, we have produced a dashboard showing the change in affordability for property in England.
