Britain’s biggest mortgage lender says that house prices fell 2.4% in May, the fourth straight month of declines in the once-booming housing market.

The Halifax said average prices are now 3.8% lower than a year ago, when prices were still edging upward. The report noted that the number of new buyers interested in buying a home fell for the 17th straight month in April.
