Today's You and Yours programme on Radio 4 phone in on house prices following some detailed research by the BBC.

Yawn, BBC programme on house prices.  Know how that ends eh!

But wait, based on their detailed (ward by ward,) analysis of 10 years of house prices after allowing for inflation.  

Over half have not gone up!  Averages are meaningless.  A malteser market (pockets of bubbles).  

Many of the calls agree.

And the analysis uses understated inflation figures and ignores maintenance, development and opportunity costs.

Much as I hate the BBC - well done!  

Or does this mean the BBC management have sold their BTLs!

And/or support for a do little/nothing Hammond budget!

Something seems to have changed.

I have to wary though,there have been many false dawns for me since I first came on here in 2007.

It looks like an effort to deny the bubble.

I can't help but wonder if Conservatives have realised the problem housing is causing them, and hope they can persuade people it isn't a problem. 

Except people aren't voting Labour because they believe prices are too high, they're voting Labour because they haven't got a house, and tenants don't vote Conservative.

Things are so bad I might vote Labour! That’s how bad they are! :lol:

although im a massive fan of re nationalising services. British Gas £650 million profit last year! I want that money to go to the government like it does in Germany.. along with all the other companies that are raping us!

£650m is chips. It's less than two weeks BREXIT bus B.S.

I can no longer listen to Radio 4 or "You and Yours" in particular (I call it Whinge and Moan).

Listener base seems to be welfare State rapists trying to socialise any losses whilst hanging on to unearned ill gotten gains (inheritance, HPI you name it)

So not at all surprised its boomer listeners are phoning in saying "well our house hasn't risen in value"

That’s one privatised company, what’s the total combined profits of all the companies JC wants to re nationalise? Why don’t Germany privatise their services if it’s such a great idea?

''Professional journalism'', are you being ironic??

Can only echo what others have already said... All I heard was BBC propaganda to try and convince people that the North is affordable (with current IR's and a joint 35 year mortgage)  so what are you waiting for?... Get out there and buy, buy, buy  you plebs, don't you know you're just worthless scum until you get on the ''property ladder''

- ''Real life'' callers saying how terrible it is that their property isn't back up to 2007 fraud fuelled bubble levels

- Solutions to this ''problem'' of supposedly affordable housing... the main one apparently being the Northern Powershithouse... Which will ''encourage investment'' (i.e inflate property prices)

= One supposed ''real life'' example claiming they bought a flat in sheffield in 2007 and their relative bought a similar flat at the same time in Hackney, E London for the same price.. Really?

 Then went on to say how terrible it is that the Sheffield flat is potentially worth less than they paid for it whilst the Hackney flat is now worth £700k

 

All I see here is the BBC/Govt seeing that the London/SE market is stagnating at best, whilst the Northern market is continuing to rise... so they're doing their best to sustain and further pump up that Northern momentum.

You tell me seeing as that's what you are proposing

All I did was point out that your gas profit is sweet F.A. in the scheme of things.

Those ward by ward numbers are too small to be meaningful. Some are blank anyway because of not enough numbers, but even others are clearly pushing it. Up 23% where I live, down 23% in the next one less than half a mile away (and we're not talking about going in to a completely different neigbourhood)?
