Hpc Surveys?

Recommended Posts

The likes of Halifax, Rightmove and Nationwide feed the media with a steady stream of cherry picked survey results.

Why can't HPC do the same? Why not have a more more formal poll section and publish the results on the website (and give them to any media bodies who want them)? There are more than enough visitors to the site. This could be done monthly and tackle different subjects.

More than enough visitors? The sample size of the smallest of the three you mention, Nationwide, is around 10,000 actual transactions per month. This website can't possibly have as many as 10,000 visitors in a month who have actually completed on a property transaction in that month and will fill in the survey.

No, but what we can do is tilt the results of online surveys or any other polls they carry out... I seem to remember we managed to change one poll from 20% saying a HPC was likely to up to 60%!!!!

Give me strength. The 10,000 is your own reference and you created it so that you would have something to shoot at. You do not need 10,000 people for a survey, idiot!

Here is an example of two questions that the Building societies would never ask:

Please answer the two questions below:

What is your property status?

[1] First time buyer

[2] Sold to rent

[3] Owner occupier

[4] Buy to let landlord

Where do you think house prices will be in 12 months time?

[1] The same as today

[2] Higher than today

[3] Lower than today

When building societies ask the question, they are talking to people who are emotionally committed to property ownership. An HPC poll would separate the groups. A big difference in the poll results between the different groups would make a great sound bite for the BBC (if they would publish it).
