Doesn't actually provide any evidence of his predictions and doesn't seem to take into account the ominous clouds gathering of the economy and every other property market in the English speaking world

>>"Demand is a lot more buoyant overall than at this time last year, so a rise of up to 10% in the faster moving regions, such as parts of London and the South, could be on the cards this year. "

This is very interesting considering land registry figures showed both the South East and South West as negative over the first quarter. Seems EA's may be architects of their own demise if they start ramping up prices.
