2018 saw sales activity in the Guernsey Open Market at its highest level since the financial crisis 11 years ago when 96 properties were sold, according to recent figures.
The independent compiler of property statistics, Unusualities of Guernsey, reported that 75 Open Market transactions took place last year, compared to 48 in 2017.
Of the 75 transactions, 67 were houses at an average price of £1.3M (up from the 2017 average of £850K) and eight flats sold on average for £1.2M.
The Local Market also saw a rise with 844 recorded transactions, the highest since 2011.
Head of Carey Olsen's property group in Guernsey, Jason Morgan, says the figures are "encouraging" and "demonstrate that Guernsey remains an attractive destination for new residents".
