House prices ‘rise for third month in a row’ as buyer confidence increases

See the below article on Sky News:

The housing market appears to be on the up, following a slump last year, and many lenders have begun cutting their mortgage rates.

House Price Rise


House prices have risen for the third month in a row, according to new figures from Halifax.

The bank said the average cost of a UK home was £287,105 in December. The figure is up 1.1% from the month before and is also the highest level since March 2023.

Halifax’s director of mortgages, Kim Kinnaird, said the market also beat expectations in 2023, growing by 1.7% on an annual basis.

It comes after several high street names reduced their rates earlier this week, with experts predicting other lenders will soon follow suit.

Imogen Pattison, an assistant economist at Capital Economics, said Halifax’s figures “confirm that falls in mortgage rates are translating into renewed increases in house prices”, with rises expected to continue in the first quarter.

She added year-on-year house price growth could increase by 3% in the third quarter.

Alice Haine, an analyst at Bestinvest, said: “While house buying activity was sluggish in the second half of 2023 as many movers put their buying and selling plans on pause while they waited for conditions to improve, the new year has delivered fresh optimism for the year ahead.

“With inflation on the retreat and mortgage rates on the decline from their summer 2023 highs amid hopes the Bank of England (BoE) will push ahead with rate cuts this year, confidence appears to have returned to the market.”

Bee a good wildlife host!





According to the WWF, the UK is ‘one of most nature-depleted’ countries in the world. This has seriously affected the bee population, which we rely on to pollinate a third of our food crops. Sadly, we’ve lost 11 species from each square kilometre. 

Thankfully, we can all help by turning our gardens into a haven for bees (and other struggling species, too). Here are three easy ways to get started:

Include bee-friendly plants . Gardeners’ World recommends single-flowering varieties, purple flowers, and tubular plants such as foxglove and honeysuckle.

Create a bee bath . Bees need water for several reasons, so leave out a fresh supply using a shallow bowl with protruding rocks for them to land on.

Invite nature in . Letting your lawn weeds flower by holding back on the mowing and avoiding pesticides will allow bees to get the most out of your garden.

Of course, encouraging bees will help ensure your flowers, fruit, and vegetables will thrive. A healthy garden can also attract buyers looking for a beautiful outdoor space, so it’s worth becoming a bee host even if you intend to sell soon.
