    areas at the upper end of the housing market

    I'm not sure about what 'areas' means in 'areas at the upper end of the housing market'. Does it mean regions or parts of the market?

    Thanks!

    Dear Petra,

    I'm sorry but I can't provide more of its original context, because it's just an example from a dictionary which I am trying to translate into Chinese. Since it could mean either, I don't have to worry that I will get it wrong. Thank you very much!

    Best wishes,
    Laura
