Average house price passes £300,000

A strong start to the year has seen the typical house price in England

and Wales surpass £300,000, according to the Your Move house price

index. Prices edged up 0.3 per cent from December, or 3.1 per cent

from January last year, to £300,169. While the month-on-month increase

is higher than in UK-wide reports from Nationwide and Halifax,

the annual rate is slower.
