Stop reading it then. You know it's rubbish from end to end. If anyone reads it you know not to listen to a word they say.

Why do people jsut keep putting links to lies on here to increase it's google rating? STOP IT

Got to be the most deliberately confusing article on housing I've seen.

If they want to keep ramping just ignore the truth and continue to deny the impending crash.

Amid the flurry of encouraging economic indicators, one statistic released yesterday should fill ministers with the deepest concern about Britain’s future.

This was the revelation by the National Association of Estate Agents that only three per cent of homebuyers last month were aged 18 to 30 – down from 12 per cent a year ago.

This dramatic dip doesn’t merely suggest a short-term failure of the Coalition’s Help to Buy Scheme in its primary purpose of giving the young a leg-up on to the housing ladder.

People with small deposits, are entitled to outbid those of us renting and savings for years. They just want a home, no matter the price, push to the front and pay more than others willing to, "what it is worth" for housebuilders and htb2 sellers, with HTB schemes.

Maybe they're now running out of entitled HTB 20-somethings willing to pay quarter million for a 2 bed maisonette with a lounge-kitchen room, a big commute to town...? They money to buy is still around at the 30+ age group, from those of us renting, and waiting for better value.

Impact of help to buy revealed

..However, as Matthew Pointon, property economist at Capital Economics points out, the housing market works on confidence and on expectations that can become self-reinforcing.
.. It’s a similar story on house prices. While help to buy sales so far cannot have had much impact on their own, it’s very hard to ignore the link between the timing of announcements and trends in prices. The graph shows how the annual rate of house price inflation as recorded by the Nationwide and the Halifax was around 1percent in March 2013 but began to rise after the help to buy Budget announcement, and then accelerated again when the launch of the second part was brought forward from October.

Daily Mail front page story today is this 3% of buyers are 18 to 30 within the last month statistic. Surprised not to see a thread on it. Had a quick scan on their website and cant see the story, but in print the headline 'Young priced out of a home' takes half the front page.

You can see it here

Massive and unprecedented generational wealth transfer and inequality, boomers virtually feeding on their children. That just doesn't go down so well as a wail headline." Home owner joy as house prices soar" sells more dead tree media to the boomers, plus littlejohn can tell them it's all the kids fault as they are just an inferior generation.
