  • “Over the next six years we’ll see home ownership being pushed further out of the reach of middle earners and even those on relatively high incomes.”

    So who exactly is going to be purchasing these properties?

    Unbelievable spin trying to get the government to agree to concrete over the whole of the Uk with houses.

    Agree with markd who is buying these houses? BTL’s with a zero yield?

  • Haha, I was about to say exactly the same thing Markd. It really goes to show how irrational some of the reporting is. What nonsense…

  • Well the grauniad is the “Shoe-Shine Boy” when it comes to economics! When even the SSB says buy, it’s time to sell.

  • I think the spin merchants are getting very desperate now.

    Unemployment is going up, house repossessions are going up, UK dept is going up, oil is going up, cost of living is going up. Of course makes total sense that house prices will continue to go up. You see money does grow on trees, it is made of paper after all.

    VI explained. “The mission of the National Housing Federation is to support and promote the work that housing associations do and campaign for better housing and neighbourhoods.” Specifically, “To create the conditions for our members (housing associations) to flourish”

    You can download their document showing the benefits they offer to housing association members which include;
    �� Representation �� Negotiation �� Influencing �� Promotion �� Campaigning

    Now, if house prices are about to rocket 50% further, we’d better concentrate on social housing through housing associations, right? I’m convinced.

    It does not matter how absurd these comments are it drives peoples fear of being left behind in a constantly rising market. These comments and the rightmove stats hit all the major papers and are believed by the masses. Whether this is right or wrong its supporting the market.

    Why would the VIs mess with a Propaganda machine that works so well.

    As a local Guern I must say that it’s not particularly fair when English people come to the channel isalnds to dodge UK tax as they price the locals out of the market. There are many disgruntled locals that have been forced to move away from their family and friends because they simply cannot afford the 139,000 pound average house.
