Spring house price momentum stalled in June as the average price tag on a property coming to market dipped by more than £1,000 month-on-month, according to Rightmove.
Across England and Wales, the average asking price was £316,109 in June, marking a 0.4% or £1,172 fall compared with May.
It was the first fall seen in the month of June since 2009 - at the height of the credit crunch - Rightmove said.
By contrast, asking prices were up month-on-month in June in the East Midlands, by 1.2%
In the West Midlands, asking prices dipped by 0.8% month-on-month - the only other region apart from London and the South East to see asking prices fall in June.
