House prices have fallen this month compared to their value three months ago, the property website Zoopla said yesterday. Its data shows prices rising by a sub-inflation level of 1.5 per cent compared to October 2011, and lower compared to July 2012. Nationwide, the market has been “relatively flat”, said Zoopla’s Lawrence Hall, adding: “London continues to pull away from the rest of the market and has experienced strong growth again over the past year.”
