Residential property sales signs seen in LondonAsking prices for homes on sale in England and Wales hit an all-time in the month to early April, pushed up by a fall in the number of properties on the market, property website Rightmove said on Monday. High house prices and a shortage of new home-building have become important issues ahead of next month's national election. Asking prices rose by a monthly 1.6 percent, picking up speed from a 1.0 percent increase in the month to early March although the annual pace of price growth slowed to 4.7 percent, Rightmove said. Rightmove said the number of newly marketed properties so far in 2015 was down 4 percent from the same period last year.
