Halifax: House prices up in December


This thread is not in the 'discuss house prices and economy board' as that is only open to those logged into the forum so anyone coming from the news story may not be able to see it.


  • Prices rose 2.3% since Dec 2011.

    So Halifax joins Land Reg, ONS and Acadametrics as all showing prices rising over the last year.

    Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”

    Whilst I am perplexed by the ups and downs of the housing market just a word of warning if you use Zoopla - they appear to value houses, even if you make the changes to your own properties, based on the price they were last sold for. Our neighbour's house was on there and theirs appears to be undervalued considering they bought a wreck & have completely gutted and redone the house - it is lovely now.

    Just a word of warning
