We may have still been in lockdown for some of this year but buying and selling houses has not slowed down. 

With people taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday there have been hundreds of home sales in Essex so far in 2021. 

Data from the Land Registry has revealed the most and least expensive house sales across mid Essex so far this year.

We had a look through the latest data to find out which homes made the list.

And there were a handful of homes which sold for millions of pounds.

The home which sold for most was in Old London Road, Woodham Walter, which went for £1,465,000.

At the other end of the scale was a property in Forrey Green, Sible Hedingham, which sold for £950,000. 

The most expensive homes sold in mid Essex so far in 2021 were:

  • Old London Road, Woodham Walter - £1,465,000
  • Church Street, Tollesbury - £1,435,000
  • Foxhall Road, Steeple - £1,400,000
  • Sextons Lane, Great Braxted - £1,265,000
  • Kelvedon Road, Little Braxted - £1,200,000
  • Bower Gardens, Maldon - £1,195,000
  • Lower Green Road, Blackmore End - £1,175,000
  • Tollesbury Road, Tollesbury - £1,050,000
  • Church Road, Bradwell - £995,000
  • Forrey Green, Sible Hedingham - £950,000

The average price tag on a home fell by just over £1,000 in August, according to a property website.

Across Britain, the average asking price in August was £337,371, down by 0.3% or £1,076 compared with July, Rightmove said.

It marked the first monthly fall in the average price of property coming to market so far in 2021 and was predominantly due to a cooling at the higher end of the market, the website added.

The fall was driven by bigger homes with at least four bedrooms, it said.
