House Price Index

The monthly LSL Acadata House Price Index reports on transaction numbers and the movement of average house prices in England and Wales, including regional data. It uses the actual price at which every property in England & Wales was transacted, including prices for properties bought with cash, based upon the factual Land Registry data as opposed to mortgage-based prices, asking prices or prices based upon samples. It is updated monthly so that prices of all reported relevant transactions are employed and provides the arithmetic average of prices paid for houses, different from the geometric average prices used in the ONS UK HPI. There is an England and Wales version and a separate Scottish House Price Index for Your Move.
