Here's a quick snapshot of what's been happening in our property market in the East of England:


House prices - The average price of a home rose by 0.7% in July compared to a year ago, according to the official UK house price index. Strongest growth is currently in Wales with prices rising by 4.2%.


Transactions - Confirming a small summer bounce, sales levels in August were 0.9% higher than a year earlier according to the HMRC. This is a significant turnaround from a -14.8% fall in July although momentum is not expected to be sustained into September.

Here's a quick snapshot of what's happening in property markets:


- Over the last 12 full months there have been 98,578 sales in the East of England. This is a –8% change on the previous 12 month period. The average sales price was £287,034.


- Property prices remained virtually static in June, the average price of a property £230,292 up just 0.7% on May. Year-on-year prices have risen by 0.9%.


- The HMRC report that transaction levels in July were 12.4% below the same month a year ago. It is worth pointing out that the June 2019 figure has just been revised from a 16.5% fall to a 4.7% fall. It is likely that the July fall is not as substantial as is being currently reported.

In June, the HMRC report that the number of properties sold was 16.5% lower than a year earlier. Despite this fall, in the first half of 2019, sales levels were just 3.6% below the first half of 2018.


Nationally there were 7.8% fewer homes for sale in June compared to a year ago, according to Rightmove, with sales volumes 4.6% lower to date in 2019.


With demand levels starting to stabilise, the RICS expect some improvement in sales rates at the national level over the next 12 months.


The Bank of England report mortgage approvals and mortgage lending in May were up marginally on last year, however quarter on quarter the volume and value of lending has fallen.


Although buyer interest remains, at 62 days the average time to find a buyer in July is at its longest since July 2013, according to Rightmove.

After contracting in April, the UK economy rebounded by 0.3% in May, according to the ONS, boosted by some recovery in car production. Meanwhile, the service sector continues to contract as it has done since summer 2018.


The HMRC report that the number of properties sold in May was 11.3% lower than a year earlier, dropping below 90,000 for the first time since May 2016.


The latest RICS Residential Market Survey suggests the market is beginning to stabilise. Demand levels were largely unchanged in May, compared to April, following consecutive months of decline since July 2018.
