House price statistics

​​​​Latest report and data

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


This year has seen a significant proportion of transactions (39%) take place as the result of completions occurring in new developments. These sales have impacted prices differently during each quarter and inflated the level of turnover in the year. The level of turnover would be 58% lower when compared to 2022 (rather than 43% lower), when excluding new builds in both years. 

Average prices for most property types were largely unaffected by these new developments. However, in Q1 the mean price for 1-bedroom flats would have been considerably higher. Conversely in Q2 and Q4 the mean price for 2-bedroom flats would have been considerably lower. Without the transactions within these new developments this year the overall House Price Index would have decreased by 5% compared with 2022, rather than the decrease of 3% recorded.

These sales from new developments make up a significant proportion of turnover, which means that they have a large impact on the composition of market sales statistics, particularly for flats. 


In the fourth quarter of 2023:
  • on a rolling four-quarter basis, the mix-adjusted average price of dwellings sold in Jersey during the year ending Q4 2023 was 2% lower when compared with the previous quarter (year ending Q3 2023)
  • on a quarterly basis:
    • the seasonally adjusted mix-adjusted average price was 8% lower than in the previous quarter and 8% lower than in the corresponding quarter of 2022 (Q4 2022)
    • 2-bedroom flats saw an increase in their mean price compared to the previous quarter, reaching their highest mean price to date, although this was highly influenced by new developments
    • all other property types saw a decrease in price compared with the previous quarter
  • the turnover of properties was 36% lower than in Q4 2022 and 22% higher than in the previous quarter (Q3 2023) 
    • without newly built properties, turnover would have been 56% lower than in Q4 2022 and 39% lower than in the previous quarter (Q3 2023)
    • 28% of properties transacted were not purchased to be the main residence of the purchaser(s), a 20 percentage point increase from the previous quarter
  • overall housing market activity, on a rolling four-quarter basis, was around 13% lower than in the previous quarter (Q3 2022) and 44% lower than in the corresponding quarter of 2022
  • on a rolling four-quarter basis, advertised private sector rental prices were 1% lower during the year ending Q4 2023 compared with the year ending Q3 2023​

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.
