House prices in England and Wales rose by 0.9% in September compared with August and sales also picked up over the summer, the Land Registry has said. The average home in England and Wales cost Â£158,337, the figures showed. This was 5.6% cheaper than the same month a year earlier, but September was the fifth consecutive month when the year-on-year price fall has slowed. Sales were higher in July compared with July 2008, after months of lower annual sales figures, the registry said.
