This article reveals price per square foot data and various charts to help you understand current housing market in Muswell Hill (N10 2).


Price per square foot

Knowing the average house price in Muswell Hill is not much use. However, knowing average price per square foot can be quite useful. Price per sqft allows some comparison between properties of different size. We define price per square foot as the sold price divided by the internal area of a property:

£ per sqft = price ÷ internal area
E.g. 212, Alexandra Road, Muswell Hill, London, sold for £850,000 on Jun-2022. Given the internal area of 1044 square feet, the price per sqft is £814.

England & Wales are officially metric, government policy dating back to 1965. Unless you still think in yards, feet and inches please convert this page to square metres!

The chart below is called a histogram, it helps you see the distribution of this house price per sqft data. To make this chart we put the sales data into a series of £ per sqft 'buckets' (e.g. £706-£743, £743-£780, £780-£817 etc...) we then count the number of sales with within in each bucket and plot the results. The chart is based on 143 sales in Muswell Hill (N10 2) that took place in the last two years.

You can see the spread of prices above. This is because although internal area is a key factor in determining valuation, it is not the only factor. Many factors other than size affect desirability; these factors could be condition, aspect, garden size, negotiating power of the vendor etc.

That said, the spread of prices will give you a feel of the typical range to expect in Muswell Hill (N10 2). Of the 143 transactions, half were sold for between £577 and £835 per square foot. Notably, only 25% of properties that sold recently were valued at more than £835 per square foot. For anything to be valued more than this means it has to be more desireable than the clear majority of homes.
