Go England!

Recommended Posts

I don't think I've ever seen an article focussing solely on English house prices, rather than England & Wales, Scotland, N Ireland etc. Rejoice at this news !!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24124904

"House prices in England have reached a record high, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics. The ONS house price index for England alone is now 0.9% higher than it was at the previous peak in January 2008. The index for the whole of the UK is just short of its peak in 2008, but very close to it."

Now I'd like to see one for England apart from London ...

The calculation methods are so far removed from each other that we get massive price differences on the indicies. For example this one claims (my area) Nottinghamshire has an average price of 161K and p[rices are starting to boom and moving forward at over 5%. Meanwhile referring to land registry you get the average price for Nottingham city at 82K and for the county at 118K, or a mean of about 100K. also they claim prices are not moving forward. Got to wonder how the inclusion of 1 million pound properties in this one and any other exclusions that land registry care to make can lead to one being 60% ahead of the other.
