House prices have continued to creep up despite borrowers facing higher interest rates and the cost of living squeeze, according to data from Rightmove. The average price of a home coming to market increased by £2,587, or 0.7% month-on-month, in September to £367,760, according to the company. Price growth was concentrated in the middle and high-end market sectors as homeowners looked to move up the property ladder. Prices in the so-called “second stepper” category – three-bedroom homes and nondetached four-bedroom properties – hit a new record average asking price of £340,513. Tim Bannister of Rightmove said the UK housing market remained “surprisingly resilient” despite growing economic pressures.
