WALES' vibrant property market is expected to remain strong over the coming months despite the recent mortgage interest rate rise, according to one of the nation's leading property experts.
Cathy McLean, director of RICS Wales - the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors - yesterday said rising prices and increased sales could continue into 2007.
The
sunny forecast caps a good few days for homeowners in Wales
after new figures showed the nation had posted one of the UK's biggest house price rises over the past year.

With unlimited credit available who needs to worry about jobs or the IR that applies? :lol::lol::lol:
