House price statistics

Latest report and data

Read the latest house price index report for third quarter 2023.

Context

The previous two quarters saw a significant proportion of transactions (45%) take place as the result of completions occurring in new developments. This quarter has, in contrast, seen a low proportion of transactions (less than 5%) as a result of completions in new developments. This has a particular impact on turnover and the composition of market sales statistics. 

The low turnover has had significant impact on the price levels in this quarter, particularly for 4-bedroom houses. This is due to turnover of higher priced (greater than £1.5 million) 4-bedroom houses remaining similar to previous years but turnover of lower priced 4-bedroom houses decreasing.

Summary

In the third quarter of 2023:
  • on a quarterly basis:
    • the seasonally adjusted mix-adjusted average price was 2% higher compared with the previous quarter
    • there was a 2% annual decrease in the House Price Index, the first time since Q1 2014 that consecutive quarters have seen an annual decrease
    • 1- bedroom flats and 2- & 3- bedroom houses all saw an annual decrease in price
    • 4-bedroom houses saw an annual increase in price
    • 2-bedroom flats were essentially unchanged in price on an annual basis
  • the turnover of properties was 62% lower than in Q3 2022, and we observed in this quarter:
    • the lowest turnover of properties (155) since at least 2002, the previous low point being 162 properties in Q1 2013
    • 8% of properties transacted were not purchased to be the main residence of the purchaser(s), a 20 percentage point decrease from the previous quarter
  • overall housing market activity, on a rolling four-quarter basis, was 22% lower compared with the previous quarter (Q2 2023) and 42% lower than in the corresponding quarter of 2022 (Q3 2022)
  • on a rolling four-quarter basis, advertised private sector rental prices were 3% higher during the year ending Q3 2023 compared with the year ending Q3 2022

Median house prices

The overall mix‐adjusted Jersey House Price Index is calculated from the mean prices of each type and size of property. Examining changes in the median price of dwellings provides a complementary insight into the behaviour of residential property prices.

Calculating the Jersey House Price Index

The average cost of dwellings in Jersey is measured quarterly by the Jersey House Price Index. This index measures the combined weighted average price of one and two-bedroom flats and two, three and four-bedroom houses.

The principal data sources on the transaction prices of property sales used in the Jersey House Price Index are:

  • the Public Registry Index and Document Enrolment (PRIDE) database for freehold and flying freehold properties
  • the States of Jersey Taxes Office for share transfer transactions

The above data are supplemented by information on the type and size of each property provided by the States of Jersey Population Office.

Private Sector Rental Index

The Jersey Private Sector Rental Index was published from 2007 until 2012 using rental consent data from the States of Jersey Population Office. The index was derived from the mean rent of properties for which rental consents were granted by the Population Office during each quarter, not from all private sector rents in the Island.

The Private Sector Rental Index was not produced from December 2012 to June 2015 due to the rental data no longer being collected. More recently a revised index has been produced using advertised rental prices from both internet and classified adverts. This data is currently published as part of the house price index report.
