From the BBC website---

House prices in England and Wales are now at similar levels to those seen in the summer of 2006, according to the Land Registry.

However, property values crept up by just 0.1% from May to June, taking the average cost of a house to £166,072.

Prices were 8.4% higher than a year ago, marking the eighth consecutive monthly rise in year-on-year prices.

From the LR website

The annual change now stands at 8.4 per cent, which is a fall from the figures seen in the previous 2 months of April and May.

The headline on this article was

House prices 'now at 2006 levels'

Prices have shown relatively little change in recent months House prices in England and Wales are now at similar levels to those seen in the summer of 2006, according to the Land Registry.

Now while we know enough make pointed comment about '2006' its worth considering the effect of that headline on the general public. It says your house is only worth what it was 4 years ago. In other words it screams your house price is falling.

No complaints from me, I'm more than happy for the bbc to push that message thank you.

Complain to the bbc trust, complaining on here does nothing.

I read so many web articles with different interpretations of the same data. But The BBC did produce house price surveys explained last year and it is simple and useful for deciphering the differences from survey to survey.

Read it very carefully, and they are correct. The article is saying over the past eight months house prices have been higher than the same month a year before. The acceleration is slowing, but it's still higher.

Although, I do agree it can be interpreted incorrectly.

The BBC has repeatedly this "pravda"-like behaviour. Shameful, and unforgivable.
