UK house prices jump by most since 2016 to hit new high - Halifax

Mon, 7th Sep 2020 08:32

LONDON, Sept 7 (Reuters) - British house prices jumped by
the most since 2016 in August to hit a record high, mortgage
lender Halifax said on Monday, adding to signs of a
post-lockdown boom in the country's housing market.

House prices were 5.2% higher than in August 2019, Halifax
said.

Prices were 1.6% higher than in July, slightly higher than
the media forecast of 1.5% in a Reuters poll of economists.
