ARCHIVE: UK house prices to average £321,600 by 2020

The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) has predicted that the average UK house price is set to reach £321,600 by 2020. This is an increase of almost £60,000 from current averages. This was reported on the What Mortgage website on 26th October 2015*.

In fact CEBR currently predicts that house prices will continue to rise this year and through to 2017. With UK property prices reaching an average of £263,000 by the end of this year which is a record high.

What this means for home buyers and home movers

Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:
“The research from CEBR also states that the reasons for continued increase in house prices are the lack of available properties and that certain properties in certain regions have “skyrocketed”. Making it more difficult for people to move up the property ladder. It is also probably due to the market continuing to be buoyant.
