Current index

As of May 2018 the average house price in the UK is £226,351, and the index stands at 118.72. Property prices have risen by 0.1% compared to the previous month, and risen by 3.0% compared to the previous year.

About the House Price Index

The UK House Price Index (HPI) uses house sales data from HM Land Registry, Registers of Scotland, and Land and Property Services Northern Ireland and is calculated by the Office of National Statistics. The index applies a statistical method, called a hedonic regression model, to the various sources of data on property price and attributes to produce estimates of the change in house prices each period.

The index is published monthly, with Northern Ireland figures updated quarterly.

It is advised that low number of sales transactions in some local authorities can lead to volatility in the estimates at these levels. Geographies with low number of sales transactions should be analysed in the context of their longer-term trends rather than focusing on monthly movements. Our guidance page provides further detail about our data and its quality.

Note Three of the Northern Ireland regions have officially changed name since this service was first set up. While users of the app will see the new names reflected in the location search and the map selector, users who utilise the SPARQL query function should be aware the data URI for a re-named area has not changed. The new local authority names are:

  • Ards and North Down (formerly North Down and Ards), the URI remains: http://landregistry.data.gov.uk/id/region/north-down-and-ards
  • Armagh City Banbridge and Craigavon (formerly Armagh Bainbridge and Craigavon), the URI remains http://landregistry.data.gov.uk/doc/region/armagh-banbridge-and-craigavon
  • Derry City and Strabane (formerly Derry and Strabane), the URI remains http://landregistry.data.gov.uk/doc/region/derry-and-strabane
