The most affordable neighbourhoods to buy a home in Cambridgeshire




Basic Basic

If you’re thinking about buying your first home or want to move somewhere new as house prices across the county sore, data has revealed the least expensive neighbourhoods in Cambridgeshire to buy a home. From Peterborough to Huntingdonshire there are a number of neighbourhoods offering an affordable budget to buy a home to step onto the character ladder or to make your next move.

The data showed the average income future homeowners would need in order to buy the home in addition as how much they would need to borrow to buy in Cambridgeshire. Data indicates in some situations people may need to borrow almost 20 times the average income to be able to provide a house.

Figures from the ONS (Office for National Statistics) show that in the year to September 2021, the average house in England and Wales cost around 8.9 times the average income. That is up from 5.1 times in the year to September 2002.

A home in the Peterborough Central area was revealed as the most affordable area in Cambridgeshire which could be bought for just 4.2 times the average household income. There, the average net household income is an estimated £33,038 a year, and the median house price is just £140,000. Since 2014, the Bank of England has set the maximum ratio of loans as 4.5 times income. Only 15% of all mortgages are allowed to go beyond this.

Based on this level of maximum borrowing, only 1% of neighbourhoods across Cambridgeshire and none in Cambridge are truly affordable to those living there, on average. However, it’s important to observe that the figures don’t include any place that a family might have saved.

Following these statics, we’ve put together a list of the most affordable places in Cambridgeshire to buy a home with the majority based in Peterborough and one in South Cambridgeshire.
