There’s been lots of uncertainty and apprehension for the UK and specifically the UK property market since Brexit. But some interesting data has been found. THE average UK house price has climbed by £17,000 in a year, continuing a “strong” run of growth, according to an official report. The typical property value was around £217,000 in July, marking an 8.3% year-on-year increase, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Notably property values have also increased by £1,000 compared with the previous month. While the 8.3% rate of annual growth is a slowdown compared to a rate of 9.7% recorded in June, it continues “the strong growth seen since the end of 2013”, the report said. Property prices are regional. The average house price in England now stands at £233,000, while in Wales it is £145,000, Scotland £144,000 and in Northern Ireland it’s £123,000.
Across the regions of England, London understandably continues to have the highest average house price at £485,000, followed by the South East and the East of England, where house prices stand at £313,000 and £274,000 respectively. The lowest average price continues to be in the North East at £130,000.
Post Brexit the UK Property Market seems to be doing OK to say the least. In fact it’s very encouraging news.
