UK House Prices

When measured in Pounds Sterling, UK Houses are over 100 times more expensive than they were in the early 1950s (the £ index has risen from 100 to over 11,000). But measured in gold, house prices are about the same today as in 1952 (gold index 100 then, 105 in mid-2020). Since 2005, house prices in £ rose almost 50%, while prices in gold fell by more than 75%.
