Recent mortgage approvals and eye watering immigration stats, combining with precipitously low stock per surveyor suggest we may be on for another bull run.

Every sustainable bull market requires corrections and bear traps to erase errational exuberance. You know it's coming to a close when acceleration is exponential because that, always and everywhere, is impossible to sustain. This market is done once everybody is in and is bullish. At that point there are no longer any new bulls to price things higher. We have an entire generation to get on the property market. Soon as they adjust their expectations and begin panic buying previously undesirable areas and choosing smaller places, the fun begins, it the housing crisis is just starting.

Calm down Libby, take a deep breath. The article cites June 2016-June 2017 figures, which in themselves give no indication at all of which way prices are heading now. The MOM figures are often down. The "entire generation" is priced out, so go figure.
