Only A Third Expect House Prices To Rise

Recommended Posts

The Halifax Housing Market Confidence Tracker monitors public sentiment towards the UK housing market and the results showed one in three people predict average UK house prices to rise this year.

On the flipside, 23% expect a fall. The rest sat on the fence.

Halifax says, this means, on balance, more people in Britain think house prices will rise than fall, revealing a positive House Price Outlook Score of +9 percentage points.

Whether prices rise or fall the majority believe that any house price movement over the next year will be relatively small - 57% expect any change to be between +5% and -5%.

A quarter believe there will be more significant changes in house prices, with increases and decreases of 5% or more.

The survey also showed that half of respondents think it would be a good time to buy over the next three months – this is more than three times the number that felt it would be a good time to sell (14%).

This is Money poll shows 75% readers think prices will fall

On our This is Money poll, we asked readers what they believed would happen to house prices over the course of the next year (April 2011 – April 2012) and the response has been the opposite to the Halifax survey.

With 8,899 responses, nearly 75% of readers believe that house prices will fall in the next 12 months.

Of this number, over 31% believe that house prices will crash by more than -10% by April 2012.

Just over 15% think house prices will rise in the coming year, with just over 6% thinking they will rise by more than 10%.

More than 9% believe that house prices will remain at the same levels by April 2012.

The Halifax survey just from people looking to buy a house This Is Money just anyone, so a big difference in outcomes?

Is this the same poll that several HPCers were busy voting on a few weeks ago? :rolleyes:

With nearly 9000 votes I don't think a few HPCers would have made much impact.
