File photo dated 02/10/2012 of a general view of an estate agent's 'Sold' sign outside a property as Tte housing market has made a ÒsprightlyÓ start to 2013, with asking prices reaching their highest levels for February since 2008, a property search website said.

Property prices in Britain are still soaring, with recent estimates saying they had shot up 3.1% over the last year.

The soaring prices have seen the average cost of a UK flat breaking the £250,000 for the first time on record.

London led the way in the property market surge, showing a 8.1% increase.

Few would be surprised by that, given central London's ultra-expensive property market meant buyers could have snapped up a 11ft by 21ft parking space for a mere £300,000.

In the last quarter, 230 houses were sold, but what were the most expensive sales over the last quarter?
