Halifax HPI reports 9% annual increase

Halifax's September 2015 House Price Index reports an increase of 3.0% over the latest three months (June-August).

The bank's data shows an increase of 9.0% from the same three month period in 2014.
  • Annual change +9.0%
  • Quarterly change +3.0% 
  • Monthly change +2.7% 
  • Average Price £204,674 

Martin Ellis, Halifax economist, comments:

"House prices in the three months to August were 3.0% higher than in the previous quarter. This measure of the underlying rate of house price increased from last month’s 2.5% but remained below June’s 3.3%.

The underlying pace of house price growth is strong. The shortage of secondhand properties for sale on the market is resulting in upward pressure on house prices. At the same time, economic recovery, real earnings growth and very low mortgage rates are supporting housing demand. Strengthening demand and highly constrained supply are likely to mean that house price growth continues to be robust in the short-term.”
