East Sussex: prices up, volumes up

Average property prices in East Sussex rose by 6.2% in the 12 months to the end of November. This compares to a rise of 5.2% across the South-East region, over the same period and puts the average house price in East Sussex at £278,431 in November 2017. 

Particularly strong price growth was seen in the terraced houses sector, which grew by 7.2% in the 12 months to November on average.

Tim Luckin, director of Mansell McTaggart, said “this is a good time for anyone thinking about selling, following sustained but manageable price growth over the last few years”.

Martin Willats, director, agreed, adding “yet it is also a good time for people who want the reassurance of knowing they are buying into a market where values are rising, and before they rise further”.

Tim added that “in any market it is also important for sellers to ensure they choose an experienced agent who has a local presence to check the validity of buyers and their offers”.
