Regional round-up

Jersey property prices have generally been strong for decades and represent a good investment across all property sectors as the economy has thrived, particularly driven by the financial services sector. Skilled people have secured licences to work in Jersey and join the property ladder, and high-value people have sought to move to Jersey for the lifestyle and other benefits such as no inheritance tax.

However, there is a distinct lack of new builds for young people and this has resulted in a squeeze on one, two and even three bedroom properties. Our mean prices have seen increases in nearly all sectors:

  • One bedroom flats – £263,000
  • Two bedroom flats – £413,000
  • Two bed houses – £535,000
  • Three bed houses – £633,000
  • Four bed houses – £907,000, a slight drop back on Q2 by £72,000.

Looking at mix-adjusted average prices and comparing with Guernsey and the UK, Q3 2019 shows:

  • Jersey – £521,000,
  • Guernsey – £427,000
  • UK – £234,000
  • London specifically – £477,000
  • South East – £327,000.

In fact, the Jersey mixed adjusted average price was not only higher than London but is more than twice that of the UK. This is a problem for our Government if they want young people to stay or come to work in Jersey as the house prices are not affordable. Our authorities need to come up with solutions for new builds and shared equity.

This last year in our region, we have organised several training events covering anti-money laundering, best practice, client service and digital advertising and we have enjoyed speakers from the UK including Property Industry Consultant, Nathan Emerson.

During my tenure, I have sought to improve standards and ethics and encouraged agents to undertake the excellent Propertymark courses and qualifications.

In November, we held our Estate Agents’ Ball achieving our largest ever turnout of nearly 200 people. The black-tie event also raised £7,495 for the After Breast Cancer charity and during the evening a diamond worth £1,000 was won by an unsuspecting person who we understand will have it set for an engagement ring!

Developers and builders continue to be busy restyling existing properties or demolishing and replacing with something far grander. Private lenders offer solutions for some borrowers where they may fall just short of bank lending criteria, to allow a home to be bought. For agents, it is about building your reputation and profile and trying to stand out from our overcrowded estate agent market!
