As with most settlements which offer a reasonable commute into the capital, house prices in Ware are high - a situation bolstered by its location in what Estate Agents often refer to as the 'Golden Box'. This is an area close to London which remains relatively 'unspoiled', and is sought after by commuters and other wealthy property buyers.
