They are not Tourists, morons, they are MIGRANTS

Daily Mail: Brexit BONANZA: Tourists are pouring into Britain — and it's the time for homeowners to cash in by r

There is literally a race right now to flood into Britain and front-run border controls. It is being reported as a tourist rush, but how many will go home? Many will stay until they get indefinite leave to remain. This is a total disaster. We should repeal the European Communities Act IMMEDIATELY. Then replace freedom of movement with a freedom to work. Visa free access, but no right to reside unless you have a job and, no benefits or NHS until a Citizen and you have to have private healthcare between times. Simple, and if the EU threaten us with tariffs, we would make money from them because they export way more to us than we do to them!! House prices in Britain are literally going to go to the moon because of this.

What is luxury in London?

Telegraph: Prices of luxury London homes 'could fall as much as 50pc'

I'm struggling with the term "Luxury" in the context of London flats and housing. £2m gets you what exactly in London? "A simplistic ‘back of the envelope’ computation shows there were 3,140 real estate transactions registered above £2m in London in 2015 (and 920 in 2016 leading up to Brexit)." So that would be a normal house in a less than favourable area or a one bedroom in a nice area?

Sorry, but this brazen confidence is bullish, long term

The Guardian: 'A tortured heap of towers': the London skyline of tomorrow

RE-POSTED: Even this article is out of date, with more skyscrapers granted since. If the City can suck in enough companies to fill these towers, they will all need places to live. Look on the London Overground routes from Liverpool Street and along the Crossrail route to see where workers will live. Remember, BOE will cut interest rates if these towers, being constructed a few mins walk from Threadneedle St, halt work.

Help for housing on it's way (This is for libby)

The Bank of England could make the first cut to UK interest rates in more than seven years on Thursday. Mark Carney, the Bank governor, has indicated that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) would vote to cut rates in July or August. The probable reduction from 0.5% to 0.25% is intended to boost the UK economy in the wake of the Brexit vote.

Barratt are planning for Housing Correction

Reuters: UK's Barratt could slow pace of housebuilding after Brexit vote

Barratt Chief Executive David Thomas said the market was now more likely to slow. "We would look at future land commitments, our current commitments, we would also look at our build programmes and the extent to which we should slow down our build programmes," he told Reuters. "The principle focus of our reassessment will be about where we have approved land but we have not yet submitted for planning or alternatively where land is coming to the market that we could bid on and we are looking at whether we will or we won't," he said.
