Although prices increased on a monthly, quarterly an annual basis, the rate at which they have climbed has fallen to it’s lowest since March 2013. This has been a current trend across many of the UK house price reports as Brexit uncertainty has resulted in many buyers and sellers refraining from a sale. So while properties are selling, they aren’t selling in the quantity that we would usually see at this time of year. 

Despite this low rate of growth, UK house prices are expected to remain within the 3% range where growth for the year is concerned, and October bucked the previous trend of double consecutive monthly price declines to register positive growth. The continued increase in property prices has been attributed to the continued affordability of mortgage products, a lack of housing stock to meet demand and a reduction in the rate of unemployment.
