One thought on “The real story of house prices

    …only to ignore home.co.uk’s reported figure of a 1.9% drop over the same period in England and Wales, and this is just the asking price.

    My father in Wales backs this data up. He say’s for the last 18 months properties have stayed on the market for longer and “reduced” signs are becoming more commonplace.

    Its not what you read, its where you read it.
