UK house prices are up again.  The latest figures from the office of national statistics or ONS show house prices continuing to rise.

Average house prices rose 2.9% in the year to May 2020. This is a further increase on the rise in April to 2.7%.

Average house prices are now;

England £252,000

Wales £169,000

Scotland £155,000

Northern Ireland £141,000

However this data is based on house completions, which means that most of these sales were agreed before the lockdown.
