Hampshire estate agents analyse the latest house price index

Our Hampshire estate agents have enjoyed an incredible summer this year and the pace at which new buyers and sellers are entering the market hasn't slowed as we move through autumn and towards winter. Winkworth has three offices in the county of Hampshire - Basingstoke, Petersfield and Romsey - and from these branches we offer county-wide coverage. One of the questions we are asked most as Hampshire estate agents is: what is happening with house prices' Although we don't have a crystal ball - much as we'd like - we can use the latest figures, our precise historical data and current demand trends to give clients an informed view of the Hampshire property market. Let's start with the most important point. Buying a property in Hampshire should primarily be about finding a home in which to live. The property market is subject to fluctuation and a home should rarely be seen as a vehicle with which to make money. That said, we are a nation obsessed with house prices and there is enough statistical data out there to see how property for sale in Hampshire is performing. House prices are correcting themselves after the property market dip of 2007/2008, so Hampshire estate agents expect to see a climb in values. That said, Winkworth predicts a natural levelling out over the next two years and house price indexes should be a point of reference rather than the sole motivation behind buying or selling property. The most recent house price index published by Nationwide reflects on the house buying activity in 2014 and from the last decade. Hampshire is classed by the Nationwide as outer south east and in the sub regions, Basingstoke and Dean reported the biggest house price growth over the last ten years. Since 2004, house prices in this area have risen 31% - with annual uplift of 13% reported in the second quarter of 2014 and a marginally higher rise of 14% in the third quarter. Figures for Mid Hampshire were similar, with 30% house price growth in the last decade and rising prices this year - an 11% annual uplift in the second quarter of 2014 and 12% posted for the third quarter. According to Nationwide, property for sale in Hampshire has performed well across the board, with the New Forest also posting encouraging figures. House prices in this area of natural beauty have risen 19% in the last ten years, with annual growth of 8% in the second quarter of 2014, and 7% in the third quarter. Down on the south coast, flats and houses for sale in Hampshire have also seen healthy appreciation. In the Portsmouth area house prices have risen 18% in the last decade, with an 11% annual rate of growth in the second quarter of 2014, and 14% in the third. The neighbouring Southampton area posted similar results: 21% house price growth in the last ten years and 12% annual growth in the second quarter of 2014, followed by 13% in the third quarter.
