Access to a rich source of unique proprietary data means our independent research team gets under the skin of the housing market. Whether you are a buyer, seller, investor or tenant, our thought-provoking analysis is always relevant, never dull, and written with you in mind.

By taking economic, political, social and cultural drivers into account we put the housing market into a real-life context bringing you the big picture and local detail.

We analyse all aspects of the housing market from affordability to taxation, from investment to housing policy, from city to country and country to city – we cover this and everything in between.  We want to stimulate and add to the housing debate. And most importantly, enable informed decision making for those on the move or thinking of making a move.

Hamptons is part of Connells, the largest property services group in the UK. This enables us to draw on a rich and diverse pool of property data which includes sales and lettings, mortgage and surveying. We have access to some of the UK’s best, most up to date and reliable property data, which provides us with a fully rounded view of the housing market right across the country.
