The coronavirus pandemic caused an unprecedented economic shock in the UK, closing businesses and putting people out of work.
But despite that, average house prices held up across England – even if there was a drop in sales.
It was the same picture in Arun, where prices rose by 2.6 per cent in the year to September 2020, even as sales dropped by 23.5 per cent.
In the South East as a whole, house prises were up 3.4 per cent.
Here we reveal which neighbourhoods saw the strongest growth in the year to September 2020 and those which saw the average house price fall.
The Office of National Statistics publishes house price figures by district, region and by ‘Middle Layer Super Output Areas’ (MSOAs) – small geographic areas containing an average of 7,200 people.
That’s how we can tell you the figures for house price rises in smaller neighbourhoods across the district.
The data by ONS shows the mean average for house prices in each area from September 2019 to September 2020, showing the percentage of increase or decrease in house prices a year on.
