Biding its time
- Annual change in house price growth lowest for seven years
- The Eats of England records negative growth for first time since March 2012
House prices largely continue to flatline, and the rate of annual growth has fallen consistently since August. It now stands at just 0.9%, well below the rate of inflation, and the lowest since April 2012. It leaves the average price in England and Wales at £305,522, up £2,724 on the same time last year.
Despite weak price growth, transaction levels rose slightly in November, up 2.5% on a seasonally adjusted basis. With an estimated 82,500 sales, they are at their highest for the month in three years.
