Nationwide House price index
According to the Nationwide House Price Index annual house price growth slowed in May.
The building society said that prices were up 4.6pc in May compared with the same month a year earlier, however moderated from last month which was at 5.2%.
Robert Gardner Nationwide’s Chief Economist reportedly says:
“Over the longer term we would expect house price growth to converge with earnings growth, which has typically been around 4% per annum. However, much will depend on supply side developments-in recent years the rate of building activity has remained well below that required to keep up with population growth”
