UK House Prices Rise in November


A Zoopla study shows that the UK's average house price rose by PS49.257 over the last five years. A third of homeowners have seen their homes increase over this. Monmouthshire, Hastings and Trafford were among the places where prices rose most in the past five years. London's value is expected to reach PS2.4 trillion in 2021. It is predicted that in the South East of England will rise to PS1.7 trillion. In the East of England is predicted to increase by PS1 trillion.

The Nationwide building society reported that the median house value in Britain rose 11.2 percent in the 12 months that ended in January 2022. This was the biggest increase since 2005. In the same time frame, the number of sales for homes increased by 25%. This was the largest increase in property transactions since 2007. At this rate, UK property prices are likely to increase for an extended period. Growth in the country is slow and it is unclear how much the country will grow over the coming time.

The median UK home price was published by Halifax in the month of October. The data showed the average of an 8.2 percent increase over the previous year. This is the highest annual increase in UK house prices since the expiration of the furlough and stamp duty holidays. According to HMRC (the official statistical office of the government) housing sales were up 24.3 percent in October, which is a new record. Due to the rising cost of housing and less homes on the market the housing market has entered positive growth.

A report from UK Property Transactions Statistics Statistics has revealed that house prices in the UK are up 10.2% over last year. The number of residential property sales increased in a staggering 24.3% from October 2021. London, however, saw an increase of only 1.2 percentage over the same period in the year before. A combination of several factors are responsible for the rise in the cost of housing. Increasing supply and demand for homes means more competition and more transactions.

According to Halifax report, the average home cost in the UK was up 8.2 percentage during November. This is the highest rate ever recorded in this particular UK housing market, and is an indication on the shortage of housing. The largest seven regions in the UK contain the highest-growth houses within the UK. Also, strong increases are seen in the North, and South. The average West property price increased 7.6 percent between the month of October 2021 and now. This region of the North East of the country saw the lowest growth of house prices.

These patterns are set to push the country's housing market to increase. The increase in national house prices is 15.6 percent in the last year. The UK has a very modest housing supply compared to other nations. In the current year, the amount of residential sales of property are lower than the prior times. Although it is a large increase, the price of homes in the West has decreased by 10% when compared with the rest of the country.
