Hometrack: +0.2% MoM, -2.9% YoY

Bloomberg: UK house prices rise for fourth straight month

U.K. house prices rose for a fourth month in November, as the shortage of homes for sale sustained the property market, Hometrack said.
The average cost of a home in England and Wales climbed 0.2 percent from October to 156,700 pounds, the property-research company said today. Prices are down 11 percent from the 2007 peak. A separate report showed consumer confidence fell for the first time this year.
“It is easy to see how agents are beginning to feel more confident about sustainable pricing levels -- at least in the short term,” Richard Donnell, Hometrack’s director of research, said in the statement. “A decline in demand is inevitable in the run up to Christmas but there are signs that the upward pressure on prices is likely to decline in the months ahead.”
