Private home prices rose 0.4 percent in the second quarter, the slowest increase in four years, the government's preliminary figures showed last week.
The second-quarter rise was also much slower than the 3.7 percent increase recorded in the previous three months but prospective buyers waiting for huge bargains may be disappointed.
