Only way is up in Chatham

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

Chatham has been iden­ti­fied as one of the top-per­form­ing town across the UK for house price growth over the past year.

Prop­erty val­ues there jumped by 17.1% over 2016, ac­cord­ing to Hal­i­fax and the av­er­age house price is now £237,545.

Prices in Chatham surged at more than dou­ble the 7.5% an­nual growth seen across the UK gen­er­ally.

The 10 areas with the high­est house price rises over the last year were all in London or the South East.

Ahead of Chatham were Lu­ton, Bark­ing and Da­gen­ham, Dun­sta­ble, and Basil­don.
