Asking Prices For UK Properties Fall

The average asking price for a property for sale in the UK has fallen by nearly £10,000 in the past two months, new research has revealed.

Figures published by Rightmove in its House Price Index revealed that house prices around the country have dropped by 3.2 per cent since October.

This means properties are now on the market for an average of £9,719 less than they were in October. This is the biggest fall in prices over two consecutive months since 2012, when asking prices dropped by £11,836 in the same period.

In London, new seller asking prices dropped by 1.8 per cent in December compared to November. This makes price tags on London homes an average of £11,275 lower than they were a month ago.

However, Miles Shipside, Rightmove director and housing market analyst, noted that bigger drops have been experienced in the past. “This is a less aggressive reduction than the average of 2.9 per cent since 2013,” he stated.

Mr Shipside also added that the “relative scarcity” of properties coming onto the market in the capital means that sellers have less pressure to reduce their asking price to compete with other similar properties.

But there is often a spike in people looking for new properties just after Christmas, with the Press and Journal recently reporting that Boxing Day is often particularly busy when it comes to house hunting.

If you are planning a move around Christmas, it’s important to have everything organised well in advance to make it as stress-free as possible. Arrange home removals in North London in good time and make sure that you’ve started packing well before your moving day rolls around.

Housing Supply Improves In London

If you’re looking to either buy a property or move home in the UK’s capital, you could be forgiven for thinking that you’re going to struggle. But new research from Nationwide has revealed that the supply of properties in London has increased in the past decade.

According to the figures from the building society, the number of abodes in London has increased by nearly ten per cent since 2007, although the level of new builds happening in the city has tapered off in the past year.

That said, London was named alongside the south west and east of England as one of the areas to experience the strongest growth in housing supply in the past ten years.

Robert Gardner, chief economist at Nationwide, noted that these are also “amongst the areas that have seen relatively strong house price growth over this period, suggesting supply is responding to price signals”.

Although the building society’s research also found that house prices climbed by an average of 0.3 per cent month-on-month in November, it noted that house price growth is “subdued”. That means it could be a good opportunity for first-time buyers to enter the market.

If you are looking for a home at the moment, it could be worth considering properties in Richmond, Hackney or Haringey if you can afford them, after these were named as the top London Brexit boroughs by Homes & Property recently.

Wherever you’re moving to, take the stress out of the process by engaging a quality removal service in London.

Average UK Property Costs £232k

The average price of a house in the UK is £232,554, having increased by 3.5 per cent over the last 12 months.

This comes from the latest UK House Price Index for September 2018, released by HM Land Registry yesterday (November 14th).

Its findings revealed this is a greater annual growth than August’s figures, when it was a lower 3.1 per cent.

The region where house prices increased at the fastest rate was the West Midlands. Here, they grew by 6.1 per cent over the 12 months.

However, house prices in the capital have not fared so well this year, declining by 0.3 per cent in the 12 months leading to September 2018 – following a drop in values since March.

The official statistics showed a typical property in London was £483,833 in September 2017. This has fallen by over £1,500 over the year to £482,241 this September.

This decline was driven by a drop in the value of flats and maisonettes, which have seen a 2.3 per cent fall since September 2017. However, those living in detached and semi-detached properties will be glad to hear that prices have risen by 3.4 per cent during this time.

Halifax’s latest House Price Index supports these findings, with its October report showing annual growth has slowed to the lowest rate since 2013.

While values have grown by 1.5 per cent over the 12 months leading to October 2018, this is a big decline from the 2.5 per cent annual increase in September and represents the slowest rate of growth for five years.
