Annual House Price Growth Slows

Annual House Price Growth Slows

Economy news GPEA 28th November 2016

Annual house price growth has fallen to a three-year low, according to Halifax’s latest House Price Index.


November’s Report shows that annual growth eased to 5.2% in the year to the end of October.


This is nearly half its 10% peak in March and a fall from 5.8% in the year to the end of September.


It is the lowest yearly growth rate since July 2013, when annual house price growth was at 4.6%.


The bank attributed the slowdown to mounting affordability pressures, which have constrained housing demand.


Activity levels have also stabilised, having risen sharply in the early part of the year prior to April’s increase in stamp duty on second homes and buy-to-let purchases. Quarterly figures from July to September show that UK home sales were 8% lower than in the same three months last year.


Despite lower annual growth, the average price of a home in the UK was up 1.4% in October compared to September, at £217,411.


Going forward, Halifax said that property prices should be supported by the restricted property supply. Low mortgage rates are also helping homeowners.
