Britons Less Optimistic on House Prices, Survey Says

The number of Britons who expect house prices to rise this year decreased in the last three months as concerns about the economy mounted, Rightmove Plc said, citing a survey.

About 24 percent of 28,401 U.K. consumers surveyed this month said prices will be higher in a year, the operator of Britain’s biggest property website said in a report released in London today. That compares with a result of 27 percent in October and 53 percent a year earlier.
