On a monthly basis, the index rose 1.7 percent, the biggest monthly increase since August 2009.“The bounce back in prices reflects the unexpectedly rapid recovery in housing market activity since the easing of lockdown restrictions.", Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said. “These trends look set to continue in the near term, further boosted by the recently announced stamp duty holiday, which will serve to bring some activity forward. However, there is a risk this proves to be something of a false dawn. Most forecasters expect labour market conditions to weaken significantly in the quarters ahead as a result of the aftereffects of the pandemic and as government support schemes wind down. If this comes to pass, it would likely dampen housing activity once again in the quarters ahead.", he added.

UK House Prices Decline for 1st Time Since 2012
The Nationwide House Price Index in the UK edged down 0.1 percent year-on-year in June 2020, the first annual decline since December 2012 and defying market consensus of a 1 percent rise. On a monthly basis, the index fell 1.4 percent, the second straight month of decrease in house prices. “Housing market activity also slowed sharply as a result of lockdown measures implemented to control the spread of the virus. While latest data from HMRC showed a slight pickup in residential property transactions from April’s low, in May they were still 50% lower than the same month in 2019. " Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said. “With lockdown measures due to be eased in the weeks ahead, housing market activity is likely to edge higher in the near term, albeit remaining below pre-pandemic levels. Nevertheless, the medium-term outlook for the housing market remains highly uncertain." he added.

UK House Price Growth Weaker than Expected
The Nationwide House Price Index in the UK increased by 1.8 percent year-on-year in May 2020, the smallest increase since December and well below market consensus of a 2.8 percent rise. On a monthly basis, the index plunged 1.7 percent, the most since February 2009. "Housing market activity has slowed sharply as a result of the measures implemented to control the spread of the virus. Indeed, data from HMRC showed that residential property transactions were down 53 percent in April compared with the same month in 2019." Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said. "Behavioural changes and social distancing are likely to impact the flow of housing transactions for some time. Our recent market research survey suggested that 12 percent of the population had put off moving as a result of the lockdown. Most viewed the current situation as a temporary pause in the market, with would-be buyers now planning to wait six months on average before looking to enter the market." he added.

UK House Price Growth Hits 3-Year High Before Covid-19
The Nationwide House Price Index in the UK increased by 3.7 percent year-on-year in April 2020, the most since February 2017 and above market consensus of a 2.5 percent rise. "It’s important to note that the impact of the pandemic is not fully captured in this month’s figures. This is because our index is constructed using mortgage approval data, and there is a lag between mortgage applications being submitted and approved." Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said. "But housing market activity is now grinding to a halt as a result of the measures implemented to control the spread of the virus, and where the government has recommended not entering into housing transactions during this period.", he added.
