Whether you’re getting to know the market for your next property purchase or just gawking at your dream home in Croydon , we are all intrigued to know what is happening in the housing market where we live.
A detached house in Purley went for the highest price of the month in October at £1.2million.
And won’t come as a surprise to many of you that pretty much all of the most expensive sales were in the south of the borough.
The cheapest deal in October – the most recent month figures are available for – was for a flat at Mill Court flat, on Brighton Road, in South Croydon, which sold for £95,000.

According to the Land Registry, there were 591 sales at £1million or more across England and Wales in October, compared to 545 registered in September, including 110 at £2million or more.
The most expensive property sold in October was in Westminster for £22.3million, while the cheapest was in Sunderland for £15,000.
The Land Registry lists the price paid for every property bought at market value. The data also includes sales under a power of sale/repossessions, buy-to-lets (where they can be identified by a mortgage) and transfers to non-private individuals.
It may take several weeks for sales to be registered after completion so some sales from later in October may not be listed yet.
As the data relies on buyers, or their solicitors, registering the sale and the price paid with the Land Registry, mistakes in listings may happen, they are usually corrected at a later date.
Issues can include figures with too many digits or shared ownership prices paid for a part share listed as the whole price.
