Nationwide November HPI

Nationwide House Price Index report for November.

House prices increased by 0.1% in November up 0.5% from October.

Annual house price growth softened to 3.7% from 3.9% in October.

Commenting on the figures, Robert Gardner, Nationwide’s Chief Economist, said: UK house prices edged up by 0.1% in November, though the annual pace of price growth slowed a little, to 3.7% from 3.9% the previous month.

“The annual rate of house price growth has fluctuated in a fairly narrow range between 3% and 4% over the past six months, which is broadly consistent with earnings growth over the longer term.

“While this bodes well for a sustainable increase in housing market activity in the period ahead, much will depend on whether building activity can keep pace with increasing demand.

“Surveyors have continued to report a dearth of properties on the market in recent months, with the number of available homes reportedly at the lowest level since the late
1970s.

“Therefore it is positive that policymakers are focusing on the need to increase home building, with the Chancellor announcing a range of measures aimed at boosting housing
supply in his Autumn Statement.

“The current rate of construction activity is well below the projected rate of household formation. Only 135,000 new homes were built in England in the twelve months to September 2015, well below the c220,000 new households that are projected to form each year over the next decade.”
