UK property asking prices have “hit the ground running”, reaching an all-time record high of almost £300,000, new data suggests.
The average house price reached £299,287 after rising 2.9% over the month. The figure is an increase of £8,324 or 2.9% from the average asking price in January, and is £2,738 above the previous all-time high set in October 2015.
The biggest increases were in London, where the average asking price has risen by 10.5% over the last year, to £643,843, and in the East, where it rose 10.7% to £321,630.
