Britain   In London, house prices advanced 1.1%
Asking prices edged up 0.1% in July from June. Average asking prices of property reached GBP 316,421.

On a yearly basis, house prices advanced 2.8%.

Wage growth is muted, there are signs that consumer credit is tightening, and at some point there will be the first rise in mortgage interest rates for a decade or more which will come as a shock to buyers, Rightmove Director Miles Shipside, said.

Nonetheless, in London, house prices advanced 1.1% from June.
