Average prices for sold properties in Loughton

Loughton sales have been booming of late, with almost 400 properties changing hands in IG10 over the last 12 months. Average house prices in the area comfortably break the £600k mark, but that doesn't mean there isn't any affordable property in Loughton, far from it.

Flats and apartments here average out at around £320k, while a terraced home will set you back somewhere in the region of £475k.

Bigger properties will naturally cost more, but semi-detached homes actually fetch less than IG10's overall average (under £600k), which gives you an idea of the kind of property that can be found here. Large, detached homes are what push that average skywards, and getting your hands on one of them will set you back around £1.2m on average.
