This dataset provides information on the regional housing price index for all property types in UK. It tracks the housing prices in the housing market allowing users to track trends over a given reference period of time.
The data is provided by Nationwide Building Society. All house price information is derived using Nationwide mortgage data. This data is extracted for mortgages that are at the approvals stage and after the corresponding valuation report has been completed. Approvals data is used as opposed to mortgage completions since it should give an earlier indication of current trends in prices in the housing market.
Nationwide house price series utilize only owner occupied property information. In addition, properties that are not typical and may distort the series are also removed from the data set. Therefore, following criteria are used to select which properties to include:
Number of cases that are used to calculate the average price for a given period of time depends upon the volume of monthly mortgage activity, hence the monthly sample size varies from month to month.
Data is subject to revisions.
