Housing Market "In A Period Of Stagflation"

The UK property market has entered a period of stagflation where house price growth is consistently lower than the rate of inflation.  That’s the view of property website Home which says house price growth has been lower than inflation for six consecutive months. Its latest data, drawn from monitoring properties listed on the major portals, suggests that whilst the average asking price is now 3.3 per cent more than in July 2016, the Retail Price Index is rising faster - Home says it increased by 4.1 per cent in May and could now be approaching 4.5 per cent, making house prices fall in real terms by around 1.2 per cent.
