Bbc: "ftbs Need Lower House Prices"

Recommended Posts

Just heard (maybe 20 minutes ago) on R4, talk about FTBs, FirstBuy, houseprices, etc. Someone uttered the core HPC heresy: FTBs should just hang in there for the time being, and wait for prices to fall. Some more HPC wisdom, but I only had half an ear on it so I couldn't give detail.

Which HPCer just got onto R4?

One of the bears was Martin lewis, I think? he mentioned 'my website' more than once. The other was someone from "priced out".

This is actually pretty common mainstream thought now. When was the last time you heard an argument against this (apart from on niche VI websites and 5 years old property porn which keeps getting recycled on the tele). No-one wants high house prices. To be honest, I knew few people - usually conceited gits - who wanted HPI in the first place.

0:45 - 0:46 : Consumer advocate Martin Lewis says...

"I think the real problem out there is that we have a national issue over... some people seem to think that renting is a dirty word, you have a right to buy a property and it's the only form of inflation that we celebrate...

"The real solution to getting first time buyers in there is for house prices to come down and that is a national debate that we need to have."

I think that warrants a ml-thumb-spin2.gif and a couple of 3some.gif3some.gif3some.gif

Thank you, Martin. Now will you please say that on your own website - preferably the housing forum. Thanks. :)

Move over Merryn and welcome Martin as the new darling of the HPC haordes?
