Positive signs for the UK property marketPositive signs for the UK property market

With the sunshine comes good news for homeowners as the UK property market shook off fears of negative growth and rose in the first quarter of this year.

A first quarter average growth of 1.27% was recorded in property prices equating to an average daily increase in value of £44 meaning an average of £3,917 was added to the price tag of a home.

This resulted in a collective growth of £114 billion, taking the overall value of UK property to a staggering £8.3 trillion - new figures in stark contrast to reports from the same period last year when the collective value of UK homes fell by £29 billion.
The North West region saw the largest growth during the first quarter of 2018 with an increase of 1.85% (£3,552) taking the average value of a home in the region to £192,397.
Following closely behind were the East Midlands and Yorkshire&Humber, both seeing a rise in value of 1.58% taking their average house prices to £212,557 and £174,353, respectively.
At the other end of the table are Wales and Scotland, where property prices showed the smallest rise - Welsh homes grew in value by 0.11%, only a £203 increase with average values now standing at £186,053. Scotland fared slightly better showing a 0.17% increase of £331 to £189,297.
While the national average for house price growth stood at 1.27%, there were some areas of the UK that saw more than double the average in increases. Sidcup in Kent, Heathfield in East Sussex and Wallingford in Oxfordshire all recorded growth of 2.84% or higher and added more than £11,000 to their property’s price tag.
