Report Can't Afford Or Dont Like What You Can Get For The Price in House prices and the economy Posted November 18, 2005 No, you dont understand correctly, which may be my fault due to a bad explanation. Yes UK land was a finite resource before, and as a result, more of it has been used up now. But yes prices can crash today, I was merely stating one FACT which should be duly noted (and possibly ignored!). I just dont personally see the huge crash on the cards that many people promote here, I know you can all close rank on me, but Im just trying to offer a point of view. Ger Gerlewis, You are very welcome to your point of view - even if others disagree. I'm sure that it has been well and truly noted by HPCers that land in the UK is finite (and indeed that we have strict planning laws). I'm not at all sure things have changed so fundamentally to sustain prices at 60-70% above their long-term trend.
