Demand Rising And Falling In One Paper?

Recommended Posts

Spotted this in a sidebar story in the Metro this morning, with a lovely quote of "The decreasing number of houses on the market is leading to snap buys and buyer anxiety" and also "Demand has outrun supply over the last 16 months" (p29, source - ING Direct)

Since the Metro is also running an article about more homes coming onto the market with the abolition of Hips and more competition amongst sellers since theres a falling number of buyers (source - Rightmove), you have to wonder if they just collect a big pile of all the articles the banks and estate agents send them and publish it.

That is exactly what they do. A PR agent I used to use told me that his job was effectively to make the journalists' lives as easy as possible by effectively writing the articles for them.
