As Spotlight reported last week, residential property values have already increased by 0.3% to average £253,658 (GBP), and now Rightmove reckon property values will now climb by up to 4% this year instead of the 2% previously predicted. However, it wasn’t good news for the whole country as residential property prices in London remained unchanged, holding at a record average of £515,379 (GBP).

The economic incentives introduced by the Government and the Bank of England (BoE) to increase overall lending and credit supply has boosted the demand for residential property ownership from first time buyers.

Residential property prices increase by 0.8% say Land Registry

Property Values Rise Again...Just!

Property Values Rise Again…Just!

Property prices across England and Wales grew by an average of 0.8% in July 2012 to stand at £162,900 (GBP), the Land Registry has reported.

Meanwhile, Nationwide reported that residential property prices shot up by 1.3% in August 2012.

Although the uplift sounds sizeable, it translates into a £340 (GBP) difference between July’s average price of £164,389 (GBP) and August’s £164,729 (GBP).

The data from the Land Registry means that UK residential property prices are now just 0.3% ahead of where they were in July 2011.

But the UK statistics were boosted by a monthly price rise of 2.7% in London, bringing annual house price inflation in the capital to 6.5%. The average house price in London now stands at £367,785 (GBP).

In Wales residential property prices also went up 2.3% during July, and there were also rises in East Midlands (1.2%) and theSouth-East and East (both 0.4%).

Contrastingly, property values fell by 0.1% in Yorkshire & the Humber , 0.6% in the South-West , 1.7% in the North-West  and 2.1% in the North-East during July.

The Land Registry’s latest data also shows an increase in property sales transactions. From February to May 2012, there was an average of 49,343 sales a month, up from 46,531 for the same period in 2010.

Online property portal, Rightmove states that it has recorded a drop in the average asking price for residential property this month, the first significant fall since January 2012.

Average UK residential property prices have fallen by 1.7%, a drop of around £4,138 (GBP),

The demand for residential property has been low due to a number of factors:

  • Euro 2012
  • The weather, deterring potential buyers from viewing properties,
  • The Olympics, for distracting people’s focus away from moving.

Righmove said that there were twice as many people trying to sell a property than those trying to buy one, with each branch of the agency having an average of 75 residential properties that they were unable to sell.

The company warned property vendors that further asking price cuts could be necessary to secure a sale.

Director of Rightmove Miles Shipside, said: “The fact that we have not seen major price falls in the UK and that many areas are not awash with ‘For Sale’ boards may lead some sellers to be over-optimistic with their pricing. New seller numbers may be down some 30% on the period prior to credit-crunch, but the numbers achieving a successful sale are down by half and average unsold stock levels are creeping up.”

The West Midlands was the only region in England and Wales where prices increased in July compared with the previous month – with asking prices up 2% to £191,121.

In contrast, residential property prices dropped most in London, compared with the previous month, with a fall of 3.6% to £460,304.
