What’s the average UK house price?

It may surprise you to know that the average price of a house in the UK has now reached just over £260,000. This is a record high for the UK property market and makes the price of a typical home about 20% higher than in February 2020, equating to a value of about £44,000.

This is the seventh month in a row that house prices have risen. This is due to a number of factors, including the threat of interest rate rises from the Bank of England, the ending of Covid restrictions, and competitive mortgage rates.

However, the market cannot continue to do this indefinitely as there are factors that will limit this growth such as the lack of properties on the market, the rising cost of living, and interest rate rises. All of this will slow down demand and ultimately cause prices to stop rising.
