Price hikes at Fastest pace in three years in UK house: Survey
Property prices in London and southeast England did well in January after 2019 elections cleared Brexit uncertainties
Britain 13 February 2020 (GNP) : Property prices in London and southeast England did well in January after 2019 elections cleared Brexit uncertainties.
House prices in the United Kingdom rose at the fastest pace in nearly three years last month, according to a closely watched survey that adds to signs of a rebound in consumer sentiment since December’s election lifted some Brexit uncertainty.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) monthly house price index surged by 17 points in January after falling two points in December, its highest reading since May 2017, and higher than all the forecasts of economists in a Reuters news agency poll. (GNP)
