|Brentford Property Sales - April 2010|
Price move up from the first quarter of the year
The average price of a home sold in Brentford during April was £297,631. This is up from the level seen during the first quarter of this year.
The April data from Land Registry's House Price Index shows an annual price increase of 14.8% in London. For England and Wales prices are up by 8.5%. This is the sixth month in a row in which the figure has been positive and takes the average property value in England and Wales to £165,596.
The Nationwide House Price index for April shows a 10.1% increase the first double digit annual increase since 2007.
Commenting on the figures Martin Gahbauer, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said, "the more important driver of rising house prices has been the low level of stock for sale, as many homeowners and buy-to-let landlords continue to wait for prices to recover to peak 2007 levels before deciding to sell up or move. The very low level of interest rates has been supportive of this wait-and-see approach, particularly in the buy-to-let sector."
He is anticipating that prices will flatten out over the next few months due to the petering out of new buyer enquiries at estate agents offices and an increase in the number of instructions from sellers.
