The average house price in the UK has increased by £17,000 in the last year.
The increase means that the average house price in the UK is now £217,000.
Property values also increased by £1,000 on average in the last month, continuing a "strong" run of growth, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
As of July the average house price in England stood at £233,000, while in Wales it was £145,000, in Scotland it was £144,000 and in Northern Ireland it was £123,000.

House prices rose at their fastest annual pace in more than a year in March, Nationwide has announced today.

Property prices were 5.7% higher in March compared with the same month last year, a bigger increase than the 4.8% gain in February.

The cost of a home in the South East of the UK or "commuter belt" could soon rise higher than the price of a home in London, a property expert has warned.
Hometrack's research director Richard Donnell said the price of a home in counties like East Sussex and Kent could rise beyond the London market, after the property analysts found the cost of a home had risen by at least 5% across 20 UK cities.
There are still bright spots of activity amid reports of a wider national slowdown.
For the first time since the financial crisis, an improved economic outlook has seen house prices in cities outside the south of England rising off a low base.
By the end of the year, we could well see monthly house price growth in London slipping below that of some of the major cities outside the South East.
