How only Prince Harry can save the British property market

Recommended Posts

What a load of tripe.. I can almost feel the writer's embarrassment at having to put their name to that radiating from the screen... it's obviously intended as tongue in cheek but must be a super-slow news week to justify that.

There's also the old faithful MSM narrative of rampant HPI being great ("saving" the market meaning preventing prices falling from their current ridiculous levels), while the guy who wrote it clearly doesn't know what he's talking about - citing selling landlords (which will drive prices down) and inability for first time buyers to buy (due to high / rising prices) as the illustrative of same problem when they signal two very different trends in the market.

Seems like the result of drawing current events from a hat and writing an article on the subject after ten pints and several blows to the head, tbh.

Kind of feels like they're running out of hard stats to back the market up.

We all know this type of thing is sh#t (I still remember RICs saying that the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament meant a reduction in buyers due to people watching the event once......) but this is a new low. 

It's just such a weird story.... it's almost like The Mirror have gone "Right, people love the Royals and they love house price inflation - write a story for the proles based on the two".

There is bound to be some moron who believes it. Either way, it's a good indicator (albeit anecdotal) of the press running out of steam on their views on the market.

...in the year running up to royal weddings and births - and found the month the event took place saw the biggest monthly rises.

Did they adjust for seasonality? I guess most royal events happen in the summer?

Transaction numbers might increase as folks put their houses on the market with a view to selling up and leaving the country to escape this nonsense...
