Lewes house prices: These are the areas where prices rose and fell most in the last year
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 Lewes where prices rose by two per cent overall in the year to September 2020.
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 that seven of the 13 MSOAs that make up Lewes saw a rise in house prices over the same period.
