Liverpool house price falls ahead of only Manchester and Bradford in Nationwide’s league table
HOUSE prices fell sharply in Liverpool last year. Estate agents confirmed the market had declined as figures released yesterday by Nationwide showed city properties suffered the third-largest fall in value in the UK in 2012 to an average Â£144,050. Liverpool was ahead of only Manchester and Bradford in the national league table, suffering an 8% drop overall. Agents said they were hoping first-time buyers would seize the opportunity to get on the housing ladder in the coming months (yeah, right).
