"While prices fell in London by 4.4% over the year to May 2019, affordability is still an issue for those buying in the capital and South East as prices remain relatively high compared to incomes. But Mark Carney and his fellow rate-setters are unlikely to place too great a weight on this, with economic data still very much of secondary importance given that Brexit uncertainty continues to loom large". "Re-mortgaging remains strong as many people stay and improve rather than footing the considerable bill for a move to another address".
A cooler property market is likely to be welcomed by those looking to buy, but analysts are likely to see it as yet another warning sign of increased slowdown in the wider United Kingdom economy just months before the Brexit date in October.
