Property search website Rightmove said asking prices for property put on sale between mid-April and mid-May rose by 2.1% after a 1.6% rise the month before. The report echoed other gauges that show Britain's housing market retained much of its momentum in the first half of 2022, despite the phasing out of temporary tax breaks on property purchases in the second half of 2021. But with household budgets being squeezed by high inflation and tax rises, Rightmove had doubts about whether the housing market can keep up its recent strength - even though there is scant sign of a slowdown in price growth now.
The number of sales agreed is up by 12% in the year to date compared to 2019.
Average asking prices have soared by £55,551 in the past two years, Rightmove said.
