That’s according to new figures from estate agent eMoov which includes Horsham among the top ten towns where houses have sold for the highest prices.
Brighton and Hove are the No 1 areas for expensive properties outside of London. But well-to-do Horsham is among towns such as moneyed Maidenhead, affluent Ascot and cash-rich Christchurch where homes sold this year have topped multi-million pound sums.
So far this year, houses worth a total of £256,925,280 have been sold in Horsham, while in Hove - home to the likes of Fatboy Slim Norman Cook, writer Peter James and musician Nick Cave - the total amount of property sold this year adds up to a staggering £459,162,154.
EMoov says that the average price of a house sold in central Horsham this year was between £397,700 - £402,000.
In Pulborough, the average price of a house sold was over £500,000 and in Billingshurst it was £490,000. Meanwhile, homes in Henfield sold for around £474,600 and in Steyning it was £409,500.
The most affordable places to buy houses in the country are Middlesbrough, Wales, Lincolnshire, County Durham and Merseyside.
London is the most expensive with Wandsworth having the highest-priced properties. So far this year properties amounting to £1,093,275,958 have been sold there with the average price tag of an individual property amounting to £938,434.
CEO of eMoov Russell Quirk said: “The property market has weathered some tough conditions over the course of the year and despite a marginal slowdown, this research shows there has still been an eye-watering amount of money transacted, most notably in Brighton which has fast become the go-to property hotspot outside of the capital.”
