For a bit of fun, we have looked at global house price growth and, in light of the start of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, made some easy-going analysis!

Women’s World Cup – The Property Version!

So, if we were to decide how England would do if their fate was to be decided by global house price growth, how would they do? Well, before we get int o that, the England Lionesses are currently ranked 3rd in the world behind Germany and USA. The housing market in England achieved a 1.1% growth in house prices for the past 12 months… not bad given the state of the housing market as things stand! Not great either though!

The top 10 teams in Womens’ Football are as follows:

  1. USA
  2. Germany
  3. England
  4. France
  5. Canada
  6. Australia
  7. Japan
  8. Netherlands
  9. Sweden
  10. Brazil

So Where Does Property Come Into It?

If we put them in order of house price growth we get the following order (I have put the above rankings in brackets for comparison):

  1. (1) USA 3.8%
  2. (2) Germany 2.9%
  3. (8) Netherlands 2.7%
  4. (7) Japan 2.3%
  5. (4) France 1.7%
  6. (3) England 1.1%
  7. (6) Canada 1.0%
  8. (9) Sweden -1.8%
  9. (10) Brazil -3.3%
  10. (6) Australia -6.7%

As you can see, whereas in reality we would hope for a semi final (at least) given our world ranking, according to property price, we are being dumped out the competition in the quarter finals! Still, it could be worse: we could be performing like the Australian housing market! Let’s look forward to this comparison when the Ashes comes round!

Come on England!

All of us here at WitLet wish the Lionesses the best of luck and will be watching all through the competition, hoping they can achieve something great and buoy the country during this damp squid of a June we are experiencing. Maybe they can usher in the real feeling of summer! COME ON YOU LIONESSES!
