That’s a pretty interesting PDF if you page down quickly, seeing the spread of housing cost increases across the UK relative to income.
For my city of Madison WI the ratio is 4.0 while it’s only 3.3 for Wisconsin in general, using 2011 data from http://www.city-data.com/city/Madison-Wisconsin.html

Maps showing ratio of median house price to median income in the UK 1997-2012.
In 1997, the ratio was less than 6 pretty much everywhere; in 2012 it’s more than 8 across most of the South, and more than 10 in much of London.
