Nationwide says prices rising, especially in London and N.I.

The Times: House price growth gap reappears

THE sharp divide between North and South in English house price growth reappeared in the third quarter, while prices in Northern Ireland roared ahead to break all records, according to data from Nationwide.

The building society said that the average rate of growth of prices in London, the South East, East Anglia and the South West was 6.2 per cent in the three months to September. Prices elsewhere in England rose by only 3.8 per cent, its data showed. Nationwide also said in its Quarterly Regional Review that house prices in Northern Ireland rose by 33.4 per cent in the year to September.

I live in the Northwest, which acording to the VI's is a hotspot of booming prices.

There is no boom here. In fact, there are for sale signs on my street that are sun bleached, because they have been up that long.
The only houses changing hands near me are the big barn conversions and detached cottages at the top end of the market.
