Article preview: With continued Brexit uncertainty, the UK housing market has experienced a slow start to 2019. The latest figures from mortgage lender Halifax show prices falling by 2.9% in January compared with December. It’s the second time in three years that the New Year has begun with a fall in average house prices. It is however worth noting that this month-on-month measure of house price changes tends to be rather volatile. It is therefore perhaps not the best measure to consider when reviewing the health of the UK housing market.
