Housebuilder stocks fell dramatically in the wake of the Brexit result, and, according to the latest Halifax house price index, so did the growth of residential property prices.

The Halifax data revealed that house prices in the three months to June were 1.2% higher than in the previous quarter, down from 1.5% in May. The annual rate of house prices growth dropped from 9.2% in May to 8.4%, the lowest since July 2015.

“House prices continue to increase, albeit at a slower rate, but this precedes the EU referendum result, therefore it is far too early to determine any impact since,” Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist said.
