House Price Rise Continues
May 27th, 2016
House prices rose by more in March 2016 than in any month since the financial crisis, says the Mail, citing Office for National Statistics numbers showing the average UK home now to be worth £292,000, a rise of £8,000 from the previous month. Prices in London and the South East rose fastest with annual rates of over 12%. Experts said landlords rushing to complete purchases before a rise in Stamp Duty rates were largely responsible.
