Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HOUSE prices rose by 0.2 per cent in the sec­ond quar­ter of the year, re­sult­ing in an­nual fall of -1.2 per cent, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tion­wide.

But York­shire saw prices de­cline by 0.4 per cent over the quar­ter and by 0.2 per cent over the year.

Robert Gard­ner, chief econ­o­mist at Na­tion­wide, says: “While eight out of 13 re­gions saw pos­i­tive growth dur­ing the quar­ter, this was not enough to keep an­nual growth pos­i­tive.

“The West Mid­lands saw the largest price falls over the past 12 months, with prices down 2.7 per cent com­pared to the same quar­ter last year.”

Quar­terly price growth in Lon­don re­mained ro­bust with an­nual prices up 2.6 per cent.
