The UK housing market has, notoriously, gone haywire this year, with sealed bids and offers far beyond asking price now seen as standard practice in many areas.
And while Rightmove has stated that the average house price in the UK has gone up by £21,389 in just six months, new research compiled for The Sunday Times by GetAgent.co.uk reveals eight areas which have actually seen house prices go up by more than £100K in just one year.
Do you recognise your own postcode among the below?

North Cornwall, PL27 & PL28 (Up to £478, 031 from £342, 903)
Celebs including the Beckhams are fond of this gorgeous but busy corner of Cornwall, which covers Cornish hotspots such as Polzeath (famed for its surfing) and Padstow (a pretty and popular fishing port).
The average house price in this corner of England has gone up by an astonishing £136K in just one year.
South Devon, TQ8 (Up to £749 565 from £617 857)
House prices were already steep in this charming part of Devon, but they have gone up far further since the start of the pandemic. Nevertheless, if you can afford it, it's an area of huge natural beauty with picturesque towns such as Salcombe and Kingsbridge.
East Suffolk, IP10 (Up to £482, 809 from £352, 495)
Ipswich and London commuters are flocking to the convenient and quaint villages of East Suffolk, with buyers keen to live along the River Orwell - especially if they can back a waterside view.
They won't be living far from the Suffolk Coast and Heaths, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or the port town of Felixstowe.
South Cornwall, PL23 (Up to £520, 525 from £395, 628)
Dawn French has sold her home in foodie and sailing haven Fowey, a port town on the mouth of the river Fowey, but there are plenty more buyers ready to move in. With glorious views over the water, plus Fowey Aquarium and The Eden Project close by, it's easy to see why.
North Devon, EX33 (Up to £484 935 from £367 811)
In yet another entry for the South-West of England, house prices have risen steeply in this beautiful part of North Devon.
Featuring the Unesco biosphere reserve of Braunton Burrows, seaside resort Woolacombe and charming seaside village Croyde, it's clear why this is such a covetable place to live.
Renfrewshire, PA13 (Up to £334, 232 from £227, 600)
Villages such as Kilmacolm are the main draw in this area of Scotland's West-Central Lowlands, which is becoming hugely popular.
New residents will be able to enjoy a slice of countryside life but with easy access to the fantastic city of Glasgow for great pubs, museums, galleries - and work.
North Somerset, BS41 (Up to £524, 917 from £419, 895)
Buyers in the BS41 postcode are sticking close to the attractions of Bristol but finding peace, quiet and more space.
Picturesque villages such as Long Ashton, which has an off-road cycle route straight into the city, offer an idyllic place to live - even for city commuters.
