The Nationwide House Price Index in the UK increased 11.2% year-on-year in May of 2022, following a 12.1% rise in the previous month and beating market expectations of a 10.5% gain. The price of a typical UK home accelerated to a fresh record high of £269,914. Prices rose by 0.3% month-on-month, the tenth successive monthly increase, after taking account of seasonal effects. "We continue to expect the housing market to slow as the year progresses. Household finances are likely to remain under pressure with inflation set to reach double digits in the coming quarters if global energy prices remain high. Measures of consumer confidence have already fallen towards record lows. Moreover, the Bank of England is widely expected to raise interest rates further, which will also exert a cooling impact on the market if this feeds through to mortgage rates," Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said. source: Nationwide Building Society, UK

The price of a typical UK home climbed to a new record high of £267,620. Prices rose by 0.3% month-on-month, the ninth successive monthly increase, though this is the smallest monthly gain since September last year ut marks the longest winning streak since 2016. “Housing market activity has remained solid with mortgage approvals continuing to run above pre-Covid levels. Demand is being supported by robust labour market conditions, where employment growth has remained strong and the unemployment rate has fallen back to pre-pandemic lows. With the stock of homes on the market still low, this has translated into continued upward pressure on house prices. ", Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said.
