House prices in Worthing: The areas where average prices increased the most in the last year despite Covid crisis
The coronavirus pandemic caused an unprecedented economic shock in the UK, closing businesses and putting people out of work left, right and centre.
But despite that, average house prices held up across England – even if there was a drop in sales.
It was the same picture in Worthing where prices rose by 1.7 per cent in the year to September 2020. Across the South East, prices rose by 3.4 per cent.
The ONS also publishes house price figures by Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs) – small geographic areas containing an average of 7,200 people.
These show eight of the 13 MSOAs that make up Worthing saw a rise in house prices over the same period. Ferring and Kingston Gorse falls under the remit of Arun District Council, so has not been included.
Here we reveal which neighbourhoods saw the strongest growth in the year to September 2020.
