Guernsey housing stock

From beautiful granite farm houses, elegant town houses, to the latest contemporary design, the variety in housing stock is well represented on Guernsey.

In regard to residency, most UK nationals will automatically qualify for a right to abode, however, you will generally only be able to purchase or rent Open Market property. 7% of the available housing stock (roughly 1600 properties) are classed as Open Market on Guernsey, albeit only a small proportion of which are available to purchase or rent at any one time. Open Market are more expensive to buy (and rent) than Local Market properties.
