House prices in the three months to December 2016 were 2.5% higher than in the three months to September 2016.
The Halifax House Price Index is the UK's longest running monthly house price series with data covering the whole country going back to January 1983.
From this data, a "standardised" house price is calculated and property price movements on a like-for-like basis (including seasonal adjustments) are analysed over time. The annual change is calculated as an average for the latest three months compared with the same period a year earlier. These figures provide a better picture of the underlying trend compared to a monthly year-on-year number as they smooth out any short-term fluctuations.
Markit, a leading global diversified provider of financial information services (Nasdaq: MRKT), has acquired the Halifax House Price Index from Lloyds Banking Group. Only the UK All Houses All Buyers Index is available here, while all other indices are available from Markit via the Markit website. The index name and methodology remain unchanged.
