You're a bit late with that story, Gruffy, boy. Wake up!

Or are you playing the usual 'public relations' game of making sure that your name comes up in lights every so often? Did the diary note come out today?

er . . . So ? That's because there's a shortage of supply. Friend of mine works for John Charcol . . . . more applications going thru than ever . . . most of 'em looking for offers in principle for when they actually find a place to put an offer on.

I was just looking into this in the area of Bristol I am looking in. Transactions are down over 50% YOY and it is definately down to a shortage of supply - not much mew stuff coming to market and everything else has already sold. I've mentioned this to a few people at work and everyone agrees the shortage of supply is down to the fact that people are finding it difficult to move up to bigger houses so they're staying put.

No it doesn't but if the applicant wants to be in a position to move quickly, they put in an application to the lender so that employer references, credit checks etc can be carried out so that all thats left to be done is a valuation on the property . . . . once they find it B)

Does this not fly in the face of the land reg figures Gruff? I'm still bemused re. the "up 23% in sales volume" from land reg YoY did anyone de-bunk that?
