HOUSE prices increased across almost one third of the country last month – but not in Yorkshire.
The biggest uplift seen in almost six years was not repeated in this region, where prices remained static.
Prices grew in 31% of postcodes in England and Wales, marking the highest proportion recorded since September 2007 as improved market activity spread beyond London, property analysts Hometrack found.
House prices increased by 0.4% in June, matching the growth seen in May which was the highest increase seen in a single month since June 2007. Just 3.1% of postcodes saw prices fall, representing the smallest share seen for three years.
