Rightmove News:

Our House Price Index was released to the media this morning and gives a national picture of house prices and activity over the past few weeks.  For lettings, our quarterly Rental Trends Tracker released last month gives an insight into what we've seen in the rental market over the last quarter.


Regional price records defy Brexit uncertainty

  • Price of newly-marketed property increases by an average of 0.9% (+£2,841) this month, buoyed by the spring market and consistent with the previous two-year average of 1.0%
  • Four out of eleven regions are bucking any Brexit blues and have set new asking price records for newly-marketed property:
  • Prospective buyers in Wales, the West and East Midlands, and the North West are being confronted with all-time highs for the average price of property coming to market
  • Upwards price pressure and positive sentiment in these regions overcoming hesitancy to come to market, with average number of new sellers in the year to date steady at -0.3% compared with same period in 2018

In contrast the same comparison sees new listing numbers in the remaining seven regions down by an average of 6.5%
