Crawley’s house price growth third-fastest in UK

Official data from the Office for National Statistics show that Crawley’s house prices have been amongst the fastest-growing in the five years to June 2015.

Third only to Cambridge and London, Crawley’s prices have risen by 37% over that period, according to the data.

Julian Thorpe, director of Mansell McTaggart in Crawley is not surprised by the data: “with London’s prices booming, people looking to buy are increasingly looking outside of the capital. With its fast trains to London, as well as to the coast and Brighton, its surrounding of the stunning Sussex countryside and access to Gatwick Airport, it’s easy to see why Crawley – and its neighbouring areas – offer such an attraction”.
