In London, property owners increased their asking home prices by 3.4% in February, according to the Rightmove real estate website. The average cost of a house in the British capital thus rose to 614,182 pounds, although it still remained 2.1% lower than the cost of 2018. As the website's director, Miles Shipside, notes, property buyers continue to think that it might be worth waiting for a more stable situation after Brexit. According to him, new houses will be mainly in demand in spring. According to Righnmove, for the period from January 13 to February 9, average housing prices in the UK increased by 0.7% in monthly terms and by 0.2% in annual terms.
