LSL Property Services / Acadata ( England & Wales ) House Price Index for August
House prices see biggest monthly boost for a year.
Average house prices across England and Wales jumped £1,900 in August, the fastest rise seen for past twelve months. This takes property values to eighth peak this year, standing at £282,816 after 4.1% annual increase.
East Anglia sees the highest rise in prices of all regions, due to a scarcity of properties coming to the market. Overall home sales fall behind 2013 levels for the first time this
year in August, following 14% monthly drop.
The North records strongest activity, with only increase in property sales over the past three months, up 3% year-on-year.
Adrian Gill, director of Reeds Rains and Your Move estate agents, comments: “House price growth now firmly has the bit between its teeth, and August witnessed the strongest monthly boost for a year. Average property values across England and Wales have jumped 0.7% (equal to £1,876)since July, which is the biggest monthly increase seen since August 2014. So far in 2015, monthly price rises had struggled to break above the 0.5%, so this clearly marks a step up in pace, as a shortfall of summer sellers puts buyers in hot contention for properties.”
