UK house prices rise at the fastest pace since 2006
UK house prices grew at the fastest pace in 15 years in 2021, reaching a record high as low interest rates and a pandemic-induced race for more space boosted demand and housing stock remained low.
Prices rose at an annual rate of 10.4 per cent in December, making the calendar year performance the strongest since 2006, according to data from the Nationwide Building Society published on Thursday.
全英房屋抵押贷款协会(Nationwide Building Society)周四公布的数据显示，12月房价按年率计算上涨10.4%，使2021年录得自2006年以来最强劲的日历年表现。
The average increase from early 2020, before the pandemic, was 16 per cent. This is in sharp contrast with the unprecedented hit to broader economic activity in the UK.
