UK Property Value Calculator

HM Land Registry has collected and published UK property sales and a regional House Price Index since the late 1990s.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the House Value Calculator work?

The Varbes UK Property Value Calculator works by finding all the properties in a UK postcode, then for each property taking the most recent sale using HM Land Registry data, and adjusting the sale price up or down depending on recent house price growth in that area and how long ago the last sale occurred.

We use HM Land Registry data for historic property sale data and also for house price index movements (which is also based on property sale data).

As an example – imagine a property last sold for £200,000 five years ago in Manchester. We see what the Land Registry House Price Index for Manchester has been for the past five years, and if properties have gone up 20% in value, we increase the £200,000 by 20% to an estimated current valuation of £240,000 and then add error bands to find a range where the value will likely be (assumes no changes to the house's fixtures and fittings since the last sale).
