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.”
