Stuart Law, CEO at Assetz, comments on the latest ONS House Price Index

Horizontal Rule
17th June 2014

“The data released today is actually a market snap-shot of the UK in April. The hot topic now is the easing back of property price growth in the London market as demand for homes dips due to a mixture of factors such as the Mortgage Market Review and chatter of interest rates rising sooner than expected.

“What this data does show is the strength of regional property markets, with annual growth across all areas of the country – even the North, which until recently was struggling to gain momentum. Help to Buy has spurred on demand mostly outside of London and the South East and whilst London is still viewed as the safest place in the world for property investors for capital growth, those searching for better future returns are looking away from London, to where employment is strong and yields are growing.”
