House prices continue to rise

In May house prices rose more sharply than in April. This has been attributed to a record low in housing stock.

RICS Chief Economist Simon Rubinsohn, notes: "House prices rose again in May, and at a quicker pace than in April, as the stock of homes per UK surveyor fell to a record low since the data series began in January 1978, according to the latest RICS UK Residential Market Survey."

This hasn't, however, affected buyer interest with new buyer enquiries rising by from 4% in April to 18% in May.
