Land Registry Hpi Jun 2015 -0.0

Recommended Posts

And the tweet the figure a month in advance. It's only use is for sales volumes now.

Plus see my post on the issue of new builds listing sales at full price despite giving out MASSIVE discounts.

What's the point of an index when if can be manipulated so openly.

Already on the Shires & London crashing threads...

There's no real gems in this month's data though.

Well, there's this little gem:

GlenroyOX74AX.jpg

According to the Land Reg it sold in April for £49,999,999, the highest priced sale in today's price-paid dataset.

The vendors must be rather chuffed.

Let me guess - without that fat-fingered typo, average prices would have been down this month?

Genuine mistake or agents fiddling the land registry ?

The housing market stinks right now.

Some one needs to point out the error to the Land registry.......

I've tweeted it to them....and several others.

Sick of being taken for a ride so getting the shires crashing message out there and raising as many uncomfortable questions as I can,,,

That single "fat fingered typo" wipes £758 off the average sale price based on the 59,311 sales last month.

Don't they exclude sales above £20m? If so, pointing the error out may mean they include it and the average goes up :wacko:

House prices in England and Wales stay static

House prices across England and Wales were unchanged in May, and the annual rate of growth fell to its lowest level since January 2014, figures from the Land Registry show.

The data, which is based on sales of non-newbuild properties registered during the month, put the average price of a home at £179,696, still below the pre-crisis peak of £180,990 reached in November 2007.

The standstill in prices follows several months of sluggish activity, underlined by transaction figures from the Land Registry. Between December and March, an average of 61,789 sales were registered each month, compared with 69,282 a year previously.

Some people may now finally escape being mortgage prisoners
Andy Knee, LMS

Beneath the headline price figures, there were big differences in how markets moved around the country. In Wales, prices were down by 0.6% on an annual basis, at an average of £116,377, while in the English regions prices were up by between 1% and 9.1%.

The highest annual growth was recorded in London and the south-east, and the lowest in the north-east of England. Some parts of the country recorded double-digit growth over the 12 months of May, all of them seemingly affected by the ripple effect of strong growth in London.

The highest annual growth outside the capital was in Reading, the Land Registry said, where prices are up by 13.3%. There was also double-digit growth in central Bedfordshire, Brighton, Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes, and other parts of the London commuter belt.

Within London, the borough of Newham, which covers the area around the Olympic Park saw prices grow by 17.5% over the year. With an average price of £301,368, however, the cost of buying in the east London neighbourhood remains well below the capital’s average of £475,961.

On a monthly basis, the largest leap in prices was Stockton-on-Tees, where they were up by 5.8%.

Andy Knee, chief executive of property firm LMS, said rises around the country were good news for homeowners who had been affected by the downturn after 2007.

“These areas were hard hit by the crash and many will only now be starting to see their property values return to previous prices. This means they may now finally escape being mortgage prisoners, offering the opportunity to remortgage and boost incomes,” he said.

“More worryingly, however, is that the average monthly number of property transactions has decreased substantially. We anticipate that figures later on in the year will see a rise but the market should not become complacent.”

Guy Meacock, head of the London office of buying agency Prime Purchase, said the “traditional seasonality” of the market has been absent so far this year.

He said: “There continues to be an imbalance between supply and demand, with people moving less often because of the significant costs associated with doing so.

“There is simply not as much housing stock to buy and with the population of London increasing, this will broadly underpin price growth for the foreseeable future.”

NB: Highest annual grown outside the capital was in Reading. LR prices up by 13.3%.

Surely they LR have checks in place. I mean, it's not exactly difficult to spot at £50m.

Today's data has now been imported to houseprices.io if anyone wants a browse. Bit late in the day I know, sorry. Still ahead of Rightmove and Zoopla mind.

Seems to be an awful lot of green in evidence unfortunately...

Your site is a great resource, evictee. Keep up the good work.

I note from my own processing that your data is more comprehensive than Rightmove and Zoopla. I've not worked out yet why certain properties are being omitted from their price-paid listings.

And just in case anyone didn't believe me...
