Firstrung, the week in focus
The week started with the DCLG, formally the ODPM, isuing their latest information on house prices. Annual house price inflation is at 6%, up from 5.3% in the corresponding period of last year. First time buyers have seen the prices for typical 'FTB properties' fall slightly in July although hardly by an amount to encourage a stampede with FTBs still seeing 150K as an entry level price to the market place.
