UK | House price inflation may soon be running on empty

The unexpected resilience of house prices last year sets 2021 up to be another year of rising values. But unsupportive macro factors and the end of the stamp duty holiday lead us to suspect some correction may not be long in coming.

  • Measures announced in March’s Budget should boost housing demand in the short term.
  • But higher unemployment, falling household incomes, and inaction at the BoE present contrary forces.
