Losing momentum?

Guardian: Annual house price growth at slowest point for two years

The annual rate of house price growth was the weakest for two years in August, said Nationwide, despite a 0.3% monthly rise in prices.
The Nationwide’s findings on house prices reflect a much more modest growth than that documented by rival Halifax.
Earlier this month, Halifax reported that house prices are almost 8% higher than they were a year ago and are likely to rise again over the coming months.

In the areas I am watching, it's DEFINITELY slowing. Lots of reductions, lots of ''unexpectedly re-available'' lots of property hanging around.

Still seeing daft asking prices, but soon followed up with constant reductions.

Weakest? Surely there's a better adjective for this? Maybe it should read
"The annual rate of house price INFLATION was the LOWest for two years in August"
The yawning gap between my flat and a house (if I'm ever able to move) is still growing, just at a less damaging pace. As someone not at the top of the so-called 'ladder' and not owning more than one, every increase in property prices is bad news for me and worse news for renters.

Enfield is still rocking on at around 15% per annum, along with Harrow and Barking and Dagenham, where the suburbs play catch up as London's population soars towards 10 million people.
