House Prices Up 11%

Getting on Jersey's property ladder has moved further out of reach for many, with the average paid for one bedroom flat reaching another record high.

They ended 2022 at an average of £383,000.  That is £13,000 more than last summer.

Overall, house prices in December 2022 were 11% higher than a year earlier.  Advertised private rents had increased by 10%.
