  2. I suspect they are skewed, for London/SE (We will find out when the L/R is out) Is that better news?
  3. I agreed a purchase last August, Looking ,although would have stopped from April if things went pear shaped My rational at the time, was that approvals had been growing since the Nov, and the next interest rate moved looked to me to be a cut. London economy seemed to be picking up, and I was purchasing very close to London. Why I purchased the property I did? I EA they knew we were looking for about one or two streets (Yep I know, but that's me). One came up, and as I knew the EA well (and had no chain) We were allowed to see it. The seller needed a fast sale, because they had seen a ho
  4. Hi Gross is not any use in predicting the movements in house prices, as gross includes remortgages. The figure to look at is the number of loans, for house purchase, which is strong even compared to 2003 and 1H2004 when house prices were booming 2003 jan 48,829feb 58,030mar 72,808apr 78,668may 78,500june 84,111july 89,352Aug 81,635sept 85,626oct 90,718Nov 80,414Dec 64,5632004 jan 54,443feb 72,339mar 97,852apr 87,800may 89,289june 88,859july 69,951Aug 64,032sept 59,905oct 59,011Nov 47,245Dec 40,0502005 Jan 34,216Feb 47,084Mar 64,372April 67,290May 67,702June 70,750july 65,611Aug

Approvals -- the number of loans agreed but not yet completed -- totalled 86,106 in June compared with 70,750 in June 2005 and up from 81,298 approvals in May. Approvals in May were up 20 percent on the year.</i>
  6. Hi realist Rightmove had the East Midlands falling. Rightmove said the strongest price rises seen during the four weeks to July 8 were in the South East at 4.7%, followed by the South West at 3.8% and Greater London at 2.9%, with the London borough of Haringey seeing a jump of 5.8%. But at the other end of the scale, prices in Yorkshire and Humberside fell by 1.6%, while those in the East Midlands dropped by 0.7%, and in the North West and East Anglia the average cost of a home edged ahead by just 0.2% and 0.3% respectively.

Bucking the trend of a slowing housing market in other regions of England and Wales, the capital’s house prices rose by 10.3 per cent over the 12 months to May.

  9. Hi Dec 2002 was because they adjusted the values of Garages in the Regression. Cheers

  11. No its not, Halifax always use a three month rolling average.
  12. Your right it is 6 months out, I thought it was June?!? Its a number that I use, for 6 months out as a rule of thumb (Min adj), I was trying to be generous to you, as I didn't want to agrue the toss over small amounts. The reason short sterling needs adjusting is because they settle against LIBOR, which is the un-collateralised commerical bank liability curve, and not the risk-free curve. For this you have to use Gilt-Repo rates which trade less than LIBOR For example three months out tend to trade approx 14-18bps less than LIBOR. As you go further out the "premium" will get larger and at
  13. No it doesn't you have to make a min of 0.15% downwards in the expected interest rates 6 months out, and that is the min possible Therefore 95.04+0.15 is 95.19 gives an implied rate of 4.81% or 0.06/.25 or 24% chance of 5% And that is being overly generous to you as 0.15% is the min 6 months out, and we are now 7 months out and a more realistic downward would be 0.2%-0.25% (For settlement this month the market has a premium of 0.2) Basically on any reasonable adjustment you are only going to get one increase before year end
  14. Twaddle one is priced in (How many times do I have to explain this) , as you have to adjust the SS rate. Unless you think current base rate is Short Sterling (95.300) ie 4.7%!
  15. Because the BOE are in no hurry Unemployment is rising, inflation is under control, wage inflation is under control, the pound is up 1.25% first half year. And the BOE last inflation report didn't see expect any rise soon, in fact not until 2Q07. The last set of minutes didn't show any inclination of rising rates soon. You might have one before year end, but one 0.25% rise is hardly going to create a crash, is it?
