Rightmove says house prices will continue to rise
A study by the estate agent website Rightmove claims the average property asking price rose 0.5 per cent in the past month to £222,859. The figure is up 13.5% in the past year. Some estate agents claim to have effectively 'sold out' - leaving buyers resorting to unorthodox measures like gazumping.
