Senior property researcher at Zoopla Izabella Lubowiecka said: “While national house prices indices pointed to modest house price falls over 2023, our property-by-property level tracking of home values shows that most homes saw their value unchanged or slightly higher over the year.

"Value reductions were focused in southern England while modest gains were recorded in lower priced, more affordable housing markets.”

This comes as the recent Halifax House Price Index showed similar increases.

It revealed the UK hotspots with the strongest house prices as rates climb for the fourth consecutive month.
