Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

York­shire house prices rose an av­er­age of 0.6 per cent in the first quar­ter of the year and have risen by 6.9 per cent over the last year, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tion­wide In­dex.

There was only one bleak spot and that was Brad­ford, where prices have not risen at all over the past year. The av­er­age rise across the coun­try was 1.6 per cent quar­terly and an­nu­ally prices rose 8.8 per cent.

Martin Gah­bauer, Na­tion­wide’s chief econ­o­mist, says: “The first quar­ter of 2010 saw con­tin­ued house price growth across most UK re­gions and all re­gions saw an im­prove­ment in their an­nual rate of change. Greater Lon­don main­tained its po­si­tion as the best per­form­ing re­gion.”
