First-time buyer demand boosts house prices to record highs..

Rightmove says that asking prices hit a new record high in October House prices hit new highs this month as first-time buyers scramble to get their foot on the housing ladder, according to property website Rightmove.

Average asking prices rose to £296,549 in October, 5.6pc higher than they were a year ago. Especially strong demand from first-time buyers has seen the price of properties bought by those getting on the housing ladder jump by close to 10pc in the period.

Miles Shipside, a Rightmove housing analyst, said that the growth in average house prices was “mainly being fuelled by the heady price rises of typical first-time-buyer homes”.
