UPPER CROFT Price Paid vs. HPI Average

The below graph shows the average detached house price in the Wealden local authority area over time, sourced from the HPI. The three UPPER CROFT sales between July 2003 and June 2021 have been plotted on the graph. A line has been extrapolated to show what the value of the property might have been over time, following each sale, had it maintained the same margin above or below the HPI (as a percentage). For example, the January 2005 sale was for 118% above the HPI. So the extrapolation line tracks at 118% above the HPI over time, until the June 2021 sale, where it falls to 111% above the HPI. The line then continues to track at 111% above the HPI.
