November 2019 House Price Update
UK Housing Price and Market Update for November 2019
Average Price Paid
Annual price growth remained below 1% for the twelfth consecutive month.
At +0.8% annual price change, November provided the strongest growth since April.
Household spending has proven resilient given weaker global economic growth, whilst business spending has slowed.
The UK general election taking place in the coming weeks is not expected to have any significant impact on house prices. When compared to previous general elections, existing trends within the housing market have remained dominant over effects caused by the political calendar.
Based on a similar trend analysis, mortgage approvals also appear to be, on the whole, unaffected by general elections.
