Report Is it the time? Or completely the wrong time? in House prices and the economy Posted June 12, 2017 On 6/11/2017 at 9:49 AM, jiltedjen said: the main parties now know the young have a gun to their head, no longer is HPI the golden ticket This We are already well past the point where ever higher house prices became a political liability. The Tory attack on BTL is arguably a political calculation - priced out & tenants outnumber landlords by a large margin, so there are simply more potential votes by favoring the former. The election result can only push all of the main parties even further in that direction.
