Quarterly house price to rent ratio in the United Kingdom (UK) 2015-2020

Which one is more expensive: to rent or to buy? The house price to rent ratio is an indicator of the affordability of owning housing over renting and is calculated by dividing nominal house prices by rent prices. A ratio of over 100 means that renting is more affordable than buying.

House price to income ratio in the UK

Another indicator for house affordability is the house price to income ratio, which is calculated by dividing nominal house prices by the nominal disposable income per head. While the ratio saw an overall increase between 2015 and 2020, at 106, it stood close to the average for the Euro area.
