Camden house prices have seen the strongest growth in the country this quarter with a 42 per cent increase in average prices compared to 2013 figures.
This is compared to the UK as a whole, where the value of a typical home fell in September for the first time in 17 months, according to figures from mortgage lender Nationwide’s latest house price index.
The 0.2 pc national decrease this month knocked nearly £1,000 off average house prices in the country.
In contrast, regional variations mean that London saw annual price growth rise 21 pc.
Robert Gardner, Nationwide’s chief economist, said: “London did see a slight softening in the annual pace of price growth – from 25.8 pc in Q2 to 21 pc. Prices in the capital are now 31 pc above their 2007 peak, with the price of a typical London property just above £400,000.”
