"We are operating in a robust mortgage market and see good prospects for our chosen specialist segments, which positions us well for future growth," it added.

Would those segments be MEW and IO ?

New residential lending almost doubled between July and December to £4.7bn from £2.7bn in the first half of 2005.

It added the buy-to-let market had recovered more strongly than the entire market and the trend should continue.

:lol:

Do you think it could have been anything to do with sipps? :ph34r:

Bradford & Bingley (B&B) has thanked a "buoyant" property market for an 11% rise in full-year profits.

Yep, all those people with small mortgages who MEWed between 50k and 100k added that nice little bit extra to the coffers. ;)

You are all clutching at straws again, my desperate little bears.

The property market has picked up and alot of people are out there buying - hence all of the surveys point to this, Land Reg stats, the lot of them.

EAs in my part of the world are busy - ring them up and find out for yourself. There is a shortage of property over £300k and EAs will tell you not to bother going to see it unless you are prepared to offer full asking price.

To be fair, there seems to be a lot of low end property on the market, but it seems to be turning over quite nicely and asking prices are definitely edging up.

Time to get real, and recognise that this situation is most probably going to continue for the next 2 years, given the up beat BoE inflation report.

The steady as she goes, soft landing, is well on track, even though its not possible according to the bears on here. Well it looks like it is possible - its been happening for about 20 months now, and a further to years to go ........... at least !

:lol:

So you think that prices will hold up for another couple of years. The majority here would probably disagree with you on that, but even if you are proved correct, with renting cheaper than the interest on a mortgage it seems sensible to sit tight and wait.

I am not clutching at straws or questioning the validity of the story.

What I am asking is this really news???

Why do the banks and BS's get all this coverage on their whopping profits etc?

Its just an excuse to make a headline imho.

"property market has picked up and alot of people are out there buying" - not when I see a sea of for sale/to let signs for over a month now

"ring them up and find out for yourself" - and listen to their spin

"BoE inflation report" - do you believe this 'offical' statistic?

I can't believe your still pedalling this garbage....

Thanks for your helpful input. I wait with bated breath for the overnight doubling of wages that will make this possible ;)

if you'd bothered to even read the report, you'd have seen that 2/3 of that 'record increase' was provided by 'cutting costs'.

20 mill out of 30 mill acheived by holding down wages, outsourcing IT and clerical, and closing branches.

Yes, actually pretty gloomy.

oh, and by the way, 'OimOopNorf',

You are all clutching at straws again, my desperate little bulls.

The property market has collapsed and alot of people are out there trying to sell - hence all of the surveys point to this, Land Reg stats, the lot of them.

EAs in my part of the world are going under - ring them up and find out for yourself - they'll bite your arm off if they think you are a real buyer. There is a massive glut of property over £300k and EAs will try and ******** you, but you can tell you should be prepared to make a seriously low ball offer.

To be fair, there also seems to be a lot of low end property on the market, but it doesnt seem to be turning over at all and asking prices are definitely falling fast.

Time to get real, and recognise that this situation is most probably going to continue for the next 5 years, given the failure of the BoE to buck the global trend in rising interest rates.

The steady as she goes, soft landin never was possible, as any fool could tell you, even though its possible according to the bulls on here (although no one has ever seen one). With inflation falling from 20% plus per year to near zero, and likely to go negative imminently, this is a BAD time to be 'up North' where they eat their own sh!t for dinner and call it 'mince'

I thought the last change in rates was down. (Last August)

We seem to have held on to this reduction for quite a while now. How is this a failure to buck the trend in rising rates? (I'm just analysing your own statement here)

, this is a BAD time to be 'up North' where they eat their own sh!t for dinner and call it 'mince'

Why do you have to resort to this kind of thing in your posts CIUW? It just makes you look even more bitter and twisted than ever...

Did anyone see this on "Have your say"...

Do you believe the news?

How much of what you see, hear and read in the news is reliable?

How do you know the news you get is reliable? Do you trust what you're told by the media? If not, what do you do? Send us your comments.

What annoys me is the use of two "experts" with opposing views interviewed at the same time to give "balance", this often causes public misunderstanding. Two examples spring readily to mind MMR & global climate change: In both these cases the vast majority of scientists involved in the area aare sure that MMR does not cause autism, and we are undergoing a period of dramatic, human-caused climate change. But by interviewing two people with opposing views, the public are given the impression that the scientific community is evenly split.

absolute rubbish

my folks up north have contacted 3 estate agents - they want to sell up - and have been told that they must keep the price 'realistic' otherwise they won't put them on the books.

unless i am mistaken, bucking the trend means to do the opposite of an action.

so, if other countries are raising interest rates and we lower them 08/05. then we are bucking the trend. B)

Yes I saw it. It was interesting to see how many people attacked the BBC's spin and political correctness. I added in my comments regarding their reporting of the hosung market (i.e. that their reporting is so bad it has no credibility). Will be interesting to see if it gets published.
