House prices

UK house prices rose by 0.9% in June, the third rise in the past four months, according to the Nationwide Building Society.

Its latest survey suggests the average home now costs £156,442 but prices are still 17% below their peak in October 2007.

The small rise may reassure people worried about negative equity but will disappoint first time buyers hoping for further falls.

We speak to Ray Boulger, technical director of mortgage brokers John Charcol and Andrew Oxlade, editor of thisismoney.co.uk.
