It was reported that three years ago the average house price in the area stood at £340,944 – with the average property now selling for £426,112.
The average cost of homes in seaside communities across the UK is said to have risen by 32-per-cent since 2006.
Sandbanks in Poole has the dearest homes at £664,655, but regional variations mean Port Bannatyne in Scotland has the cheapest at £77,132.
Sadly, this makes things even harder for local youngsters to get on the property ladder.
