  • Property sales up 37% on last year

    Well, the statistic looks frightening - sales of homes over Jan to March of this year are up 37% on last.

    A point to maybe note is that last year housing inflation pretty much flattened for a while, so maybe the percentile increase is misleading.

    Even still - worrying for us first-time buyers - we want a sluggish market, not a bouncy one!


    The number of home sales in England and Wales jumped by 37% during January to March compared with the same period a year ago, the Land Registry has said.

    Prices in England and Wales rose 5.05% in the year to 31 March, the registry said, to an average of £192,745.

    Wealthy City financiers and foreign buyers pushed London prices 6% higher to more than £300,000 on average.

    The biggest increases were seen in the north-east of England, while Conwy in Wales suffered the largest drop.
