Feature on how unaffordable housing is in town and country......

Interesting...price capped houses in shropshire (£100k, open market seems to be £200k++) They can only ever be sold for original price plus HPI in period between purchase and sale, so they should remain affordable.

The catch? only available to "key workers". Because the rest of us are just worthless scum who probably don't worship Gordon Brown.

Do the affordable house perks apply to key workers who mend shoes as well as cut keys ? :) Sorry - coat on again

I was actually posting to mention that on BBC2 just now was a program called 'Trust Me... I'm an Economist', where an economist talked to various professionals trying to predict the market amonst others.

He came out of an office after talking to Tony saying 'Tony thinks todays' housing market is overvalued, so watch out'

Considering he was quite a mellow presenter generally in tone & content this took me by suprise. Sorry if this is slightly diverting your thread, but I thought it relevant as on bbc as well & not deserving of its own thread

Trust Me... I'm an Economist

Fri 8 Sep, 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm 30mins

Tim Harford explores why we make such bad decisions about our future. The Vietnam war provided economists with some clues and Harford believes the same information is used by companies and experts to exploit us today. Luckily for us, economists have shown that we as a crowd are much better at forecasting the future than experts. We just need to know how to use the information we have. So can Harford persuade just one person to make a life changing decision about their financial future? If they can do it, so can you.
