Average house prices in the UK have increased by 3.0% in the year to May 2018 (down from 3.5% in April 2018). This is its lowest annual rate since August 2013 when it was also 3.0%. The annual growth rate has slowed since mid-2016 and has remained under 5%, with the exception of October 2017, throughout 2017 and into 2018.
This drop in UK house price growth is driven mainly by a slowdown in the south and east of England. The lowest annual growth was in London, where prices decreased by 0.4% over the year. This is the fourth consecutive month that London house prices have fallen over the year.
The average UK house price was £226,000 in May 2018. This is £6,000 higher than in May 2017 and unchanged from last month.
The main contribution to the increase in UK house prices came from England, where house prices increased by 2.9% over the year to May 2018, with the average price in England now £244,000. Wales saw house prices increase by 1.0% over the last 12 months to stand at £149,000. In Scotland, the average price increased by 4.9% over the year to stand at £149,000. The average price in Northern Ireland currently stands at £130,000, an increase of 4.2% over the year to Quarter 1 (Jan to Mar) 2018.
On a regional basis, London continued to be the region with the highest average house price at £479,000, followed by the South East and the East of England, which stood at £322,000 and £289,000 respectively. The lowest average price continued to be in the North East at £129,000.
