Was The Rightmove Report Released Ahead Of Time Planned?

Recommended Posts

Something has been bothering me over the weekend, and that was the Rightmove report. How many times in the past has the Rightmove's report been leaked?

I think this was planned to dilute the effect of the report, and not have the report hitting the wires at the same time as the NR meltdown and Greenspan's dire predictions on the UK housing bubble.

What do you think?

I thought the same thing on Friday when they released it early. Some papers reported it, but not many as it was due for release today and now it is old news.

iirc their pr ageny never altered their normal behaviour. ;)

Sounds about right, do you have any other examples though?

I don't think it would have made much difference, but your thinking assumes someone / some group are on top of the situation and in control. I think in that respect you are very wrong!

I seem to remember links to embargoed Rightmove reports being posted on here before. Either they're always available well before the official release, or it's a media strategy that they've used before.

I think they were embarrased to find how weak their calculation methodology is in the face of a perturbation in the market...this months report says 'UNRELIABLE DATA - DO NOT USE' all over it. Not using mix adjustment is a childish blunder IMHO. Of course, they blame hips rather than bad maths stats.

Anyway, it did get coverage...but much as normal beacause it looked to dodgy to publish.

It is pretty bloody odd that they haven't anywhere in their narrative released a set of hypothetical figures counteracting the HIPs effect. Would be easy to do I'd have thought, just increase the weight to 4 beds by 40% (or 66%, 100/60) and do MoM on that basis.

That would have lent a lot more credibility to their assertion that it's the HIPs effect behind everything.
