The Price For Average UK House Elevated By £4,400- A New High


According to an index, the price for the average UK house was promoted by approximately £4,400 in September, taking it to a new high of £267,587.

Halifax said the values of the property also increased by 1.7% month-on-month. Moreover, enhanced by 7.4% on an annual basis,

The research found that the minimum price of a detached home has spiked by £41,000 over the previous year as purchasers have searched for more space.

Managing director of Halifax named Russell Galley said in September, growth was the highest since February 2007, and it has pushed year-on-year inflation of house price up to 7.4%.

He further said: “This also reversed the three-month downward trend in yearly growth, which had risen in May at a year-end rate of 9.6%. The value of an average house is now as pricey as it has ever been, as it is holding at just over £267,500.”

A stamp duty holiday in Northern Ireland and England terminated in October after being tapered from July, which may have played some crucial role in the figures, Mr Galley said.

But he further stated: “It’s significant to mention that most maximum mortgages allowed in September would not have been accomplished before the tax break has perished.

“This depicts that various factors have played a major role in house price inflation during the pandemic.

“The ‘race for the area’ as people alter their lifestyle choices and partialities undoubtedly had a powerful impact.

“Studying at price variations over the previous year, prices for flats are up just 6.1%, as related to 8.9% for semi-detached properties furthermore 8.8% for detached.

“This translates into cash enhanced for detached properties of almost £41,000 in contrast to just £6,640 for flats.

“Against a backdrop of increasing pressures on the cost of living and impending elevated in taxes, demand might be supposed to moderate in the coming months, with some industry measures already showing lesser levels of buyer activity.

“However, less borrowing costs and improving labour market prospects for those already in employment are likely to proceed to give support.”

Mr Galley uttered, a restricted supply of properties, with estate agents reporting a further decline in the sale, is likely to underpin average prices into the coming year.

Mark Harris, who is the chief executive of mortgage broker SPF Private Clients, said: “With September’s house prices portraying the strongest growth’s rate since February 2007, obviously there is still some way to go ahead the market moves out of steam.

“While this is not good news for first-time buyers mainly, as well as second steppers who are struggling with affordability, mortgage rates remain less.”

Jeremy Leaf, who is a north London estate agent and a previous residential chairman of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, told: “We are observing activity has lost some oomph, but there is still loads of life left, backed by record-low interest rates and supply, while though advancing, is not doing so quickly enough.

It seems that the market is to be shrugging off rising inflation and the end of the furlough, as well as enhancing economic issues.”
