Houses for sale in the UK have risen in price, report shows

The value of houses for sale in the UK has risen since July 2010, a recent report has revealed.

According to data published in the Land Registry's House Price Index, properties for sale in Britain rose by 0.3 per cent in value from July to August.

It also revealed that year-on-year growth was 6.7 per cent, with all regions in England and Wales having experienced increases in house values since August 2009.

The area which demonstrated the biggest jump in costs over the last 12 months was London, with average property values rising by 11.4 per cent.

However, the north-east experienced the smallest climb in price at 1.6 per cent, encouraging people thinking about purchasing a house for sale in the UK to look north for their next property.

Recent figures from Zoopla.co.uk support these findings, after it reported earlier this week that the average price of a house in London is £413,350 compared with North Lincolnshire where it is £124,921.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800091520-ADNFCR
