  1. So to conclude do we perceive a cut in stamp duty is very unlikely?
  2. Could he follow Ed Ball's lead and cut stamp duty on first time buyers or on all properties up to say 250k to stimulate the housing market? What do we think?
  3. May choose to use stamp duty on high earners to fund a permamant 0% tax under say 200k?
  4. Are we expecting the exemption up to 200k to be extended/made permanent?
  5. The high street in meltdown, unemployment rising, inflation rising, interest rates due to rise...... Are we entering the crash stage of prices dropping in excess of 1% each month?
  6. Where will house prices be at the end of 2011 according to Halifax/Nationwide indices? I will predict that house prices will nationally decline 5% for the remaining 6 months of the year - obviosuly there will be regional variations. Any views?
  7. He is manager of a local branch and says he has yet to sell a single house since the 20th December! He hardly has any buyers on his books and "off the record" he said this will be a massive crash. I said "what 10% this year", he replied "make that 20%"!
  8. Thanks for the info. I'm interested in the Preston, Longridge, Clitheroe sort of areas........
  9. Anybody with any local knowledge know what is happening with prices? Thansk in advance.........
  10. I have a contact in the Halifax/Lloyds Group and he hinted that drop for August could be around -1.5%. It is officially released early next week. This could be the start of the winter of discontent
  11. The Nationwide monthly HPI is due out at the end of the month. I will start of the predictions by going for -1.1%
  12. Forex predicts -0.4%. I personally expect the fall to be greater than this and it would be great to see a fall of 1% or greater. If we can get a fall of -1% it will hit the mainstream news and hopefully cause panic and therefore create some momentum and allow me to buy my 6 bedroom mansion for 150k Thoughts/predictions?
  13. This week should see Nationwide post its HPI for July. Nationwide HPI is uaually the more optimistic survey. It will be great to see a fall of 1% or more. Any thoughts/predictions??
  14. nobody want to talkabout house prices!?
  15. I like to start threads about house prices as I thought this was the point of this forum....... Where do people perceive house prices to be by the end of 2010. Lets use Halifax HPI as Nationwide uses such a small sample and the Land registry data is months behind. I predict a conservative 5% fall from July-December as I can't see house prices dropping nationally by more than 1% a month. What do others think??
