UK House Prices Rise at Slowest Pace Since January

British house prices increased last month at the weakest annual rate since January, although there are signs that demand in the market is beginning to strengthen, mortgage lender Nationwide said on Thursday.

House prices increased 4.4 percent compared with a year earlier, down from growth of 4.6 percent in October, Nationwide said. Economists in a Reuters poll had expected house price growth to remain steady at 4.6 percent.

In November alone, house prices edged up 0.1 percent – in line with expectations.
