AVERAGE asking prices by house sellers in Hampshire have continued to rise since the financial crisis struck, according to new figures.

The average asking price for houses across the county stands at £283,217 – a rise of more than four per cent since the housing market was at its pre-crisis peak in May 2008.

However, on the Isle of Wight, average asking prices have dropped to £231,738 – more than a ten per cent fall over the same period.

Only County Durham registered a lower deficit with a 13 per cent drop in asking prices, while Merseyside has seen a drop of almost nine per cent.

Average asking prices for houses in Dorset stand at £324,373 – a six per cent rise.

However the asking prices are way behind those in central London, which register at an eye-watering £1.5m.

The figures have been revealed by property website Rightmove after comparing the average asking prices in May 2008 with those in August 2014.

The data was worked out using the website’s new house price ‘trendometer’, which allows users to see how asking prices in their area have fared since the website’s records started in 2001.

Clear divide There is a clear north-south divide in average prices, according to the figures, with areas such as County Durham, Greater Manchester and Lancashire all struggling to recover.

Outside London, Cambridgeshire has seen the strongest recovery in sellers’ asking prices, according to the figures.

Miles Shipside, director of Rightmove, said: “While at a high level the south has out-performed the north, being able to dig underneath that courtesy of the millions of properties advertised on Rightmove since 2001 shows a really varied county versus county performance.”

Many parts of the UK the sellers market as come to an end and the buter market as started where prices are dropping, the south east prices holding and other small pockets but even they will start to drop and then you start to see the beginning of a housing price crash ( and it will not just be the UK), The boom coming to an end and the bust is about to start

You've been predicting that the crash is just about to start for years.

'Predicting', I think you mean 'hoping', and always disappointed.

No. The last real crash we had was over 20 years ago, before the Nimbies took over and our political masters started flooding the country with millions of new people.

We'll never see another crash, just the occasional, short-lived leveling off.

Thatcher saw the biggest crash in house prices and that was of her own making by the policys that was interduce, since then we have seen a slump (crash) in prices twice and are about to hit the next one, as more and more people are unable to afford a deposit / mortgage for a home so the price can not remain high, there was a damning report about 30 years olds married and unmarried living with parents not being able to buy.
All that is happen as freefinker and Torchie can not see is that the seller market is coming to an end and the buyer market is starting and with this house prices will drop and when this happens the buyers will hold off to get a better deal forcing house prices even lower, the number of reprocess homes have been increasing to much and if it carrys on incressing then thats when you see a bigger slump in prices.

Economy the steadiest and fastest growing in Europe.

House prices going up.

Unemployment down.

It's not a good time for anyone who peddles the propaganda of preying on people's fears is it De-Selected?

Considering your laughable economic acumen and deliberate ignorance, no wonder no-one can take you seriously...

You still can't get things right can you Shoong, You find me one person in-side of the TUSC that say i was desected you can't and its only your personal false propaganda that say it, no one in the know say it, they say the opposite.
Only a few sected areas are prices rising, even the Echo points this out by taking in the North South Divied and naming the only areas where the prices have been holding steady, but they are missing out Devon, Dorset, west Wiltshire, Somerset and Avon where prices have hold steady or are falling.
Its not playing on people fears it is what is and that is far better than what your trying to do give people false hopes.
The only way unemployment is falling is because millions do not get counted as unemployed, and they only give the best section of figures, the number of redundancys is out stripping the number of new jobs on the market, less than 50,000 new jobs in the last year for the whole of the UK, Adult long term unemployment as gone up, Adult unemployment that don't get counted as gone up, there is roughly around 6 to 7 million people unemployed when all 6 sections are counted

When you devise your own personal set of rules it is little wonder that you always get the impression that you are right. Sadly for you the civil service produce the figures for which ever party is in power and that's where the recognised statistics come from. Anyone can come up with their own figures to 'prove' their case but no-one will take any notice of them as you continually find out.
