HOUSE PRICES stayed flat over the past three months, a poll of surveyors revealed this morning.

Exactly the same fraction of surveyors said prices rose as reported that prices fell, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ data showed, producing a net balance of zero in December – compared to November’s minus nine. And the figures suggested the housing market could be moving, if modestly, into positive territory, with upbeat expectations about prices for the first time since 2010.
