Well I like the way that those who predict "bubbles can't go on expanding forever" are cavalierly referred to as "doom mongers." I'd accept "realists." Maybe they should read their own headline.

But a good article, compared to much of the tripe that you read. Also the comments on the bottom are interesting.

True about the comments being interesting. Especially from "Mike" who seems to set a few people straight. Living in Edinburgh, it is astonishing to hear how little properties were worth in the few years before we moved here. If they hit such levels again, some of these flats will be worth 20% of what they are today. A real caution for buyers who are desperate and keep the sales cranking.
