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 Jersey Property Bulletin 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.
