House Price Growth Slowest Since 2012, Say ONS

UK house prices rose at the slowest rate to July than at any time since September 2012, up by 0.7%, official figures reveal.

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) there has been a general slowdown in UK property price growth in the last three years.

The overall growth rate has been dragged down by a declining market in London and south-eastern England.

However, the latest figures show the biggest drop in prices in the last year was in the North East of England.

Property values in the North East region dropped by 2.9% in the year to July and were down by 2.1% in July compared with June, data from the ONS and Land Registry shows.

There were also annual falls in house prices in the South East of England (down 2%), London (down 1.4%), and the East of England (down 0.5%).

Overall in the UK, the annual rise of 0.7% was the slowest since the 0.4% rise of September 2012. The biggest rise was in Wales, up 4.2%. The typical property in the UK is now valued at £233,000.

The ONS/Land Registry data is generally considered to be the most accurate house price estimate, although it covers a period which is slightly earlier than other surveys.

The news comes on the back of government measures to penalise buy-to-let investors and anybody buying a property over £1 million, which could be a London flat or small detached in the South East of England.

If you would like to get into property but not sure how, my friends at Progressive are running several events to give you the opportunity to look at a number of strategies so you can decide which is best for you.
