September marks the 42nd successive month of positive annual growth. Typical property prices are now £11,500 (4.2%) higher than a year ago, and house price growth continues to outdo rises in wages and consumer prices. In September the average home value in England and Wales rose to reach £284,742, a healthy £1,231 (0.4%) monthly boost from August, setting the ninth new price record this year.
