Quick! Last chance to get on the Titanic
Rocketing house prices have left the average British home costing 187% more than it did when the property market began its recovery a decade ago. The cost of homes in Britain has leapt by 187% since 1996. A new report by Halifax showed that the average UK house price has risen from £62,453 at the start of 1996 to £179,425 now – rising by 10.6% a year.
