This is exactly what I would expect to see. In places like Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle the market is at least two years behind London and South East.

Where I live I have noticed a pick-up in the general market recently. But new build is different. Round here old bungalows come on the market regularly and get knocked down and replaced with 1 or 2 4/5 bed houses. Normally this goes on pretty much continuously. I can't think of any at the moment.

Likewise new build flats. They were putting them up like there was no tomorrow until quite recently. But, the market stalled and the ones finished in the last couple of years have taken a very long time to sell. Now, there is one block near me (of about 5 that have gone up in last 18 months or so) which was recently finished and they are now for sale. Other than that - nothing. Very little new build activity at the moment. So, presumably, we'll have a shortage in a while and prices will go up.

I think this thing needs a trigger - it will be higher IRs and it will be as a result of a big, global financial event.

I think it shows a very clear message from the Governement.

We tax business to get money in but unfortunately they outsource all of the jobs because Britain is too expensive. This means a drop in jobs and therefore a loss of NI/TAX and EMPLOYERS TAX.

So whats the second biggest thing we make money from???

Thats right housing and land taxes.

Lets get real - If housing stops then this country is well and truly f00ked.

If housing continues to grow we get all the investers buying up all the stock and the whole country becomes renters.
