+7.5 on previous index reading
The Housing Pulse stood at 80.9 in November 2019, up from 73.3 in October. The share of households expecting house prices to increase over the coming year rose in all regions this month, helping to arrest the downward slide in the headline index since the summer. Whether this is a temporary reprieve on the back of recent Brexit developments or something more remains to be seen however. On the rents front, the survey results indicate that the cost of renting is still high up on the list of households’ worries, with 45% saying that they are concerned about it.
