Latest data released by Halifax - 7 December 2020

  • Prior +0.3%
  • House prices +7.6% y/y
  • Prior +7.5%

Slight delay in the release by the source. UK house prices continue to rise as the housing market booms into the year-end, not stopped by renewed lockdown measures. The stamp duty holiday until Q1 next year is the big tailwind here, not to mention lower rates.
