Land Registry says house prices continue to rise

House prices rose by 3.2% in the year to the end of November across England and Wales, but were up 10.6% in

London, the Land Registry has said.

There was a wide range of annual price changes across the various regions, with the North East of England

seeing a fall of 1.6%, the figures show.

The Land Registry said that the average home went up in value by 0.1% in November compared with October.

That meant the average home was valued at 165,411. The biggest gain in value annually after London was in the

South East of England, where prices rose by 3.5%.

Terraced homes showed the biggest annual increase in prices, by 3.9% on average, with semi-detached

properties showing the slowest increase, up 2.5%.

Activity in the UK housing market has been picking up pace over the year, with sales and prices on the increase.

However, many measures consider both still to be well below the levels seen during the housing boom of the last

decade.

The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) also suggested that prices in London were growing

more rapidly than the national average in the year to the end of October. "Overall it is the London property

market which is really blazing the trail," said Peter Rollings, chief executive of estate agent Marsh and Parsons.

"In exclusive prime London postcodes, the combination of low supply and fierce demand is distorting prices even

further." The Land Registry data includes houses bought for cash, as well as those purchased with mortgages.

It is also based on actual sale prices, whereas the ONS figures are based on mortgage completions.
