6. CAMEO Property Classification

CAMEO Property is a unique postcode classification for measuring house prices and the rate of sales - a key indicator of affluence and consumer confidence.

CAMEO Property is built from data on house prices. Postcodes are ranked by their average house price and then grouped into 24 bands. The top five bands each contain 1% of all delivery points, and identify the postcodes with the highest property prices. The remaining 19 bands each contain 5% of all delivery points. Thus, property band one identifies those postcodes with the most expensive houses and band twenty those postcodes with the lowest house prices. This provides a simple means of assessing the relative house price for any given postcode. The average house price within each CAMEO Property group is as follows:
