Halifax HPI Decemeber

Written by Allen Walkey on - Breaking News -

The Halifax House Price Index released last week showed that quarterly house price growth remained below 2%.

 
House prices in the latest three months (October-December) were 1.6% higher than in the preceding three months.

Prices in the three months to December were 9.5% higher than in the same three months a year earlier.

Commenting, Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, said: “House prices in the three months to December were 1.6% higher than in the previous three months. This was the second successive month that this measure has been below 2.0%, indicating a possible slight softening in the underlying rate of price growth.

“There remains, however, a substantial gap between demand and supply with the latest figures showing a further decline in the number of properties available for sale. This situation is unlikely to change significantly in the short-term, resulting in continuing upward pressure on prices.”
