  3. We have excluded any homes listed for sale with an asking price of less than £20,000
  4. We have displayed the total number of homes used in the calculation so you can see the sample size
  5. The average (mean) is calculated in the conventional way, adding up the total of all the prices and dividing it by the total number of homes.
  6. The median is calculated in the conventional way, finding the asking price of the mid-point of all homes in the sample (or, if the total is an even number, the middle two, divided by two)
  7. There is no seasonal adjustment.
  8. There is no ‘weighting’.
  9. There is no other manipulation of the calculation
  10. It’s intended for comparison purposes, so you can compare the average and median, sold v unsold, and see the ratio of properties for sale to sold, and the same ratio in lettings.
