In 2004, the average village property cost £387,015, while household income was £36,388

So which village jobs pay this much, and where can I apply?

I think by "village jobs" they mean high-flyers who have

downshifted, earned a fat profit on their London home

and then work from their village-based home offices

whilst continuing to earn city salaries.

Nice work if you can get it!

Which will be fine as long as 450,000 less homes come up for sale... unfortunately it seems more property is coming up for sale than new customers to buy it each month... a recipe for... stagnation, surely?

Bad news for a high street over-supplied with estate agents though.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

:lol:
