The Times: Why homes by the water defy the house price falls
Even as the market slows, houses by the sea, rivers or lakes still command a premium. Are waterside properties actually recession-proof?

Last Year, 57 per cent of waterside properties sold above asking price, according to the estate agent Jackson-Stops; only 27% sold above asking price in 2020. On average that sold for 4 per cent above the guide price, up from 1 per cent above asking price in the five years previously.
