House prices in Wales are growing more than anywhere else in the UK, say Zoopla

House prices in Wales are growing more than anywhere else in the UK, according to estate agents Zoopla.

Despite the end of the Land Transaction Tax, the momentum in the Welsh and UK property market is continuing unabated with the highest average house prices on record.

For the UK, the average house price stands at £235,000 and for Wales £212,281, according to Zoopla.

But according to the figures Wales is recording the highest level of regional price growth at 9.8%, followed by Northern Ireland (8.4%) and the North West of England (+8%).

House price growth in London is only at 2.2%. This represents a 7.6% gap between the region with the lowest rate of growth (London) and the region with the fastest (Wales).

Gráinne Gilmore, head of research, Zoopla, said: “The ending of the Land Transaction Tax duty holiday has had little impact on buyer demand, which remains higher than typical levels for this time of year.

“The demand coming from buyers searching for space, and making lifestyle changes after consecutive lockdowns, has further to run.

“Balancing this however, will be the ending of government support for the economy via furlough, and more challenging economic conditions overall, which we believe will have an impact on market sentiment as we move through quarter four.

“We expect the market to remain busy compared to historical norms, and for price growth to remain in firmly positive territory at the end of the year. Stock levels will start to rebuild in early 2022 as market activity returns to more normal levels.”

There are a range of properties currently on the market in Wales for around the average house price that offer character, location or value for money, depending on your house buying priorities
