The turbulent times for our country have not dampened activity in the property market, with both new instructions and new buyers rising in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the previous quarter.

Data from Mansell McTaggart, the largest independent agent in Sussex, shows that the number of new properties entering the market was 31% up in Jan-Mar 2019 compared to Oct-Dec 2018, whilst the number of new buyers registering rose even more – by 65% – over the same period.

Whilst it is usual for more properties to enter the market in the early spring than in the period running up to Christmas, Jaime Wallden, Senior Director at Mansell McTaggart commented: “the growth in new buyers exceeding the growth in new instructions shows the market for property in East Sussex remains healthy, despite the uncertain times politically and economically for the UK.”


Latest house price data for East Sussex shows that prices of sold properties grew modestly in the year to January 2019.

Growth of 1.5% was recorded, compared to 0.1% growth across the south-east region as a whole.

Prices over the last three years – since January 2016 – shows a growth of 1% in West Sussex, compared to 9% in the south-east. Chris Hounsome, Director of Mansell McTaggart in Crawley, said that: "these sort of levels of growth are healthy and much more sustainable than the double-digit growth that we saw each year before 2008. I have always believed that property is a good investment, especially in the medium to long-term. The fact that prices are still growing despite the uncertainty facing the UK right now, certainly bears that belief out.”
