Annual HPI remains at 9.2% reports Halifax

Nothing to see here - Halifax's HPI rate remains the exactly the same at 9.2%.

The average UK property now stands at £213,472 according to the bank.

Halifax's data for May's sales sees the annual rate of HPI in the three months to May remain static at 9.2%. 

The 3 month average sale price (March-May) was up 1.4% on the previous 3 month average ( Dec-Feb)

Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, comments: 

“Low interest rates, increasing employment and rising real earnings, continue to support housing demand. The strength of demand, combined with very low supply, is causing house prices to rise at a brisk pace in quarterly and annual terms.

Increasing affordability issues, caused by a sustained period of higher-than-earnings house price growth, should curb housing demand and result in some slowdown in house price growth as the year progresses.”
