UK house prices will end the year at the same level as now owing to tough economic conditions, a lender has predicted.
The Halifax, now part of the Lloyds Banking Group, said prices were broadly the same as a year ago, falling by 0.1% in May compared with a year earlier, writes the BBC.
Although various surveys have suggested the UK housing market is relatively stagnant, Halifax said prices had picked up between April and May, rising by 0.5% to an average of £160,941.
