Has Britain's house price crash been cancelled – or is it still coming this autumn? in House prices and the economy Posted August 26, 2020 On 24/08/2020 at 09:18, captainb said: Agreed, i dont think it will be pretty hence my 10% fall prediction based on unemployment. End of july back at 2016 for non food is not biblical end of times as often suggested here ala gold crew. Particularly if August shows further improvement There's already signs of the V-bounce dieing in the USA straight after July. I'll try find the charts in a bit - this is country wide aggregates in consumption, sales etc. Was shocked how quickly it dipped tbh, especially since the CARES act hadn't tailed off till at least August (and ofcourse another small extension has gone in). IMHO numbers are a bit synthetic whilst furlough scheme is active. 24 minutes ago, GregBowman said: From personal experience a lot of people are back I don't know how many of course but in one of my clients Furlough claim 65 in April, 17 now and some of those are flexibly working as allowed A few other business owners I know have already bitten the bullet and made redundant quite a few positions, and this is in high demand tech (niche). Client demand is down in this case. Didn't think i'd see it come so quickly tbh. Not huge numbers though.
