Halifax House Price Index released today for June 2016 headlines Annual house price growth eases to 8.4%.
Prices in the three months to June were 8.4% higher than in the same three months of 2015
House prices in the last three months (April-June) were 1.2% higher than in the preceding three months.
Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, said: “There is evidence that the underlying pace of house growth may be easing. House prices in the three months to June were 1.2% higher than in the previous quarter; down from 1.5% in May. The annual rate of growth fell from 9.2% in May to 8.4%; the lowest since July 2015.
“House prices continue to increase, albeit at a slower rate, but this precedes the EU referendum result, therefore it is far too early to determine any impact since”.
