Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

PRICES: York­shire house prices rose 2.5 per cent in the first quar­ter of this year com­pared to four per cent over the same pe­riod last year, ac­cord­ing to Na­tion­wide. Na­tion­ally, an­nual house price growth soft­ened to 3.5 per cent and fell 0.3 per cent in March. Com­ment­ing on the fig­ures, Robert Gard­ner, Na­tion­wide’s chief econ­o­mist, said: “There was a mixed pic­ture across the UK in quar­ter one. Six re­gions saw the pace of house price growth ac­cel­er­ate, six saw a de­cel­er­a­tion and one recorded the same rate. The South of Eng­land con­tin­ued to see slightly stronger price growth than the North of Eng­land, but there was a nar­row­ing in the dif­fer­en­tial.”
