That was down from a 4.5% annual growth rate in February, and was the slowest annual increase since August 2015, according to the building society.
House prices in March fell 0.3% from the month before. The cost of the average home was £207,308.
The Nationwide said that the level of home ownership had fallen to its lowest since 1985.
