Teesside propertyPrice earnings ratio is an indicator of the affordability of property for someone on the average salary in the area. Price Earnings Ratio in this postcode district is 6.1. Given the low level of earnings in areas such as this, property prices face a ceiling unless outside impetus can be found for increases. Areas which typically have low earnings and low prices tend to be geographically isolated or suffer from outmoded transport infrastructure. They may also be situated in areas of economic difficulty which have not yet been the recipients of redevelopment or regeneration funding. For those moving into an area like this, they may find that they are able to afford to buy a substantially bigger property than their previous home if they are able to secure employment outside the area. Moving out of areas like this can be difficult without an offer of employment in a new location. This is because price growth lags in areas of economic deprivation, so owners there are not able to use their existing property as leverage to match their standard of living elsewhere.
