Have to laugh at the Nationwide data.
4 out of last 10 months show 0.1 as the increase.

That 0.1 is a very popular number.

Interesting the March revision is downwards. Historically thay have tended to be upwards as the more expensive houses incurred stamp duty and hence took longer to process.

In terms of the 0.1% above, it would be interesting to see what effect seasonal adjustment has had. Nationwide recalculate this twice a year, so I would expect it to lag events in a changing market.
