UK House Prices Drop By 1% In March

The price of a typical UK house declined by 1% in March, according to Nationwide.

The cost of a typical house is £163,327, 0.9% lower than a year ago.

Commenting on the figures, Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said: "A slowdown was to be expected, given the imminent expiry of the stamp duty holiday, which had provided a temporary boost to house prices in early 2012 as buyers brought forward purchases that would otherwise have taken place later in the year.

"This dampening effect on housing market activity and prices may fade over the course of the summer, especially if the wider economic outlook begins to improve and other policy measures, such as the Government’s NewBuy scheme are successful in supporting buyer demand.

"However, in our view the challenging economic backdrop is likely to continue to act as a drag, with house prices moving sideways or modestly lower over the next twelve months."
