Could an average earner buy a home in your area? Interactive map shows

Potential homebuyers looking to snap up a property solo while earning a median wage in are unlikely to be able to get onto the ladder, research from Savills shows.

This is an excellent use of web map business intelligence and highlights a problem that many countries are facing,

We see the same problems in Auckland, New Zealand, although it is interesting to see that the median price in Auckland appears to be significantly higher than similar properties in Britain.

We have plenty of low cost properties in other parts of the country, however for many, the career opportunities don’t line up. That means you might be able to own a home, but you might struggle to find the type of work you want to do.

In my opinion, as one who bought their first home in a rough neighborhood, because it was all we could afford. Sometimes you need to start somewhere and just get on the property bandwagon, but that wasn’t the point of my blog today.

The point is that data needs to be available on a map/app that allows you to also turn on layers of information that show education options and deciles of schools, local crime statistics; industry or work opportunities as well as public transport or an efficient roading network..

If I am starting or have a family, I want to know that I can buy in an area where my family will be safe and not exposed to daily crime, the quality of education will give them a head start and they will be among students who want to learn, where there is work that suits my experience or aspirations and that its not gong to take me more than an hour to get there.

All of this is available in many countries on map applications, but why not have them all on the same map? Where do you start? How do you find them? What do you need to look for? I’m glad you asked those questions. An investment of only $5.99 today will get you an easy to read Kindle eBook with loads of information that could save you and your family a lot of money and heartache. It’s not just for first home buyers either. You’ll find the book here http://amzn.to/1Pl6P6o.
