A net balance of +73% of respondents cited an increase in house prices in the May 2022 RICS UK Residential Survey. Although this is down slightly from a figure of +80% in April, it remains closely aligned with the average seen over the past six months or so. When broken down, all parts of the UK continue to see house prices moving upwards, with growth still exceptionally strong in Northern Ireland, Northern England and Wales. Meanwhile in London, the current net balance of +53% (slightly more moderate than +68% beforehand) remains well above the long run average of +12% for this measure. Looking ahead however, twelve-month price expectations are still forecast to continue to rise, even if the pace of growth is seen moderating. source: Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
