Move over Sandbanks, Christchurch is garnering lots of attention in the beautiful county of Dorset. Not just for its destination restaurants, idyllic Quay, excellent schools or renowned Priory, but for its rise in property prices. Yes, you read that right!
The postcode of BH23 including Burton, Winkton and Highcliffe, beat every other Dorset postcode to see a year-on-year average price rise in properties of 3.7 per cent.
Propdex, who research actual prices paid and recorded with the Land Registry, claimed the average price you can expect to pay for a property in booming BH23 is £350,909.
The Government reports that house prices have risen in the last year by three per cent in England and 4.2 per cent in Wales. This means that properties in Christchurch have exceeded the national average.
It may mean it’s harder to buy in the area, however on the flip-side, you’re in a strong position if you are a homeowner, or are soon to become one as local property experts can’t see the increase in houses prices stopping anytime soon.
There’s not denying this is a huge accolade for Christchurch. We’ve always been an advocate for the area, hence opening our newest Saxe Coburg office here.
