Report Housing Market Grinds To A Halt in House prices and the economy Posted June 11, 2015 All these 'spin' figures/reports from associations/bodies (read vested interests) are irrelevant....what counts is WHEN/HOW many have bought/completed their purchase and for HOW MUCH....everything else if white noise. Crashmonitors comment got me thinking (and supported what I have seen). Apart from London and the SE, it seems to me that the majority of properties in the majority of area seem to be at asking prices similar to what was paid in 2004. Be interesting for everyone to comment on their local patch and what the situation is locally i.e. say sub £250-350k properties, their location, a bit of history and how they see it panning out in the next 12 months. So, to start I am on London/Essex border close to tube line (Central). Prices here for a 3 bed, reasonable location are currently £350k, were moving upto £400k 6 months previously but really didnt quite make it/sell..what do I see for net 12 months?...stagnation.
