Uk Property: A Pig That Won’t Fly

Seems like a sensible chap.

UK property: a pig that won’t fly

http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2...-that-wont-fly/

James Saft is a Reuters columnist. The opinions expressed are his own –

The pig that is British property is furiously flapping its wings, but despite signs of a recovery in prices and activity, rest assured there will be no take-off.

it's interesting that the writer predicts a wave of properties appearing on the market at the end of this year as beginning of next. The reason is because of unemployment and the poor economy apparently.

Here in Guildford, there seems to be a lack of property coming onto the market at the moment. If a wave of properties comes crashing in later this year, that should force prices down.

Never quite worked out whether swearing is allowed on this forum or not. Usually it seems to get **** out but then *****, ****** etc seem to find their way through?

What's going on.

Swearing aside, this is an interesting article.

Britons seeking to sell their property last month turned again to a tactic that worked so well in the boom years: they raised prices, with property website Rightmove recording a 2.4 percent rise in asking prices in May.

“While some of the impetus behind the increase of over 5,000 pounds in average asking prices will be due to ambition or optimism, it will also be out of necessity as new sellers attempt to scrape together enough equity to move,” Miles Shipside of Rightmove said.

Just how ambitious can be seen by comparing Rightmove’s average asking price of just over 227,000 pounds with an average April selling price in the Halifax survey of 154,000 pounds.

Forced sellers ultimately will end the standoff between asking and selling prices, and in the old fashioned way, as a lousy economy and the unemployment it breeds bring a wave of properties on to the market in the second half of this year and in 2010.

Spot on, imho.

There is a secret way to beat the swearing police, but you have to join the Secret Command & Royal Order Of Tourettes Elite before being shown the arcane rituals involved.

What started off as a very prmosing thread has turned to s**t. Could this be Sibley in disguise, resorting to simply shocking the rest of us with profanities rather than his ridiculous arguments?!
