Asking prices for homes on sale in the U.K. fell for a second month in December, indicating the property market lost momentum at the end of a strong year.

The price of property coming to the market fell by 0.7% this month, Rightmove said Monday. That’s the biggest decline since January and followed a 0.6% drop in November.
