Sniff Sniff, whats that smell?
House prices will grow by six per cent this year, according to a prominent property website - a tripling its original forecast for 2013. The house price estimate is in line with others already released this month: Halifax said average house prices had risen by 5.4 per cent year on year at the start of September. Mr Clegg told the BBC 'Weâ€™re just giving creditworthy customers the ability to borrow money to get their feet on the first rung of the property ladder.' Asking prices in London are up 8.2 per cent on a year ago, Rightmove said today, while in the West Midlands they have increased by 6.8 per cent, in the South East by 5.6 per cent and in Wales by 3.8 per cent annually.
