Commenting on the figures, Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist, said:

"The annual rate of house price inflation remained in negative territory for the ninth month in a row in November. However, the pace of decline remained extremely slow, with prices just 1.2% below the level prevailing in November 2011.

"The predominant theme remains one of stability. Indeed, UK house prices were unchanged over the month in November, after taking account of normal seasonal factors. Moreover, annual price growth has remained in a narrow band between +1.5% and -1.5% on all but two occasions over the past two years."
