House prices continue to rise at record levels

Property Shop, the popular local estate agent with branches in Accrington and Burnley, have had 20 years experience of serving the property market. The UK property market is creating new records every month in terms of growing house prices, with unprecedented rises.

According to the latest House Price Index report by Halifax, the mortgage lenders, average UK house prices rose once again in March 2022. There was a monthly increase of 1.4 per cent, or £3,860 in cash terms for the average property - the largest increase seen since September 2021.

The report by Halifax shows that the average UK property has increased in value by £28,113 in the past 12 months, 11.0 per cent higher than the same month a year earlier. East Lancashire has shown even steeper growth, with the average sale price of property in Burnley rising by 14.8 per cent, or a £14,000 growth on average. That makes Burnley the sixth-highest among the 39 local authorities in the North West. 

Even more impressive is in Hyndburn, covering Accrington and district, where property prices increased on average by a huge 19.2 per cent

Steven Chippendale, Managing Director of Property Shop, said: “This huge jump in house prices is mainly driven by the lack of properties available and the speed at which they are sold. We have buyers waiting for every kind of property, and high demand is driving prices even higher.
