The new football season is under way, and guess which Premier League team’s ground is in the most expensive area?
When it comes to the property premier league, there’s no moving Chelsea from the number one spot. Despite a 5% decrease in prices since last season, the average cost of a home in SW6 is £1,137,550. That’s £600,000 more than the second placed location in the league, Arsenal, where the average property price around the Emirates is £575,676.
So, where else ranked highly in the property league? Online estate agent eMoov.co.uk has charted the results with the name of the team, the stadium, postcode, average house price for the 2015/16 season and the change in price since last year. Here’s what they found:

As for the areas on the rise? With Crossrail 2 on the horizon, there are two London-based teams creeping up the property ladder, says eMoov founder Russell Quirk.
‘I think in terms of property, West Ham and Tottenham are the ones to watch,’ Quirk commented. ‘The developments in terms of location and transport infrastructure should see prices in both areas boosted as a result.’
Still, despite the redevelopment in these areas, Chelsea is in a league of its own.
