    UK house prices still rising

    Tight housing supply saw average house prices in the United Kingdom in the three months to May 2015 rise by 2 percent compared with the preceding three months, according to the latest Halifax House Price Index.

    Martin Ellis, Housing Economist, said: Annual house price growth rose marginally from 8.5 percent in April to 8.6 percent in May, and continued to be in the narrow range of between 8 and 9 percent where it has been throughout 2015 so far.

    Housing supply remains extremely tight with the stock of properties available for sale currently at its lowest level for many years. At the same time, ongoing economic recovery, increasing employment, real earnings growth and very low mortgage rates are all supporting housing demand.

    Many developers claim to have the best project in the best location in town. In truth, only a buyer or investor can know if those claims are true.

    One, and I use that word on purpose, developer with a very strong claim to both accolades is SC Asset with its Saladaeng One project.

    With the concept One, because nothing counts before it comes is certainly a bold statement to live up to, but judging from the relaxing monochrome tones on display in the showroom, its one thats perfectly apt for this Bangkok project. Every inch matters is another mantra that this project really lives up to.
