The closing paragraph says it all... "Such are the new mores of buyers in easy circumstances. Everyone else will be minded to be rather more cautious."

I'm getting a bit bored of reading articles saying 10% or whatever YOY despite 2 interest rate rises. Both these rises have been towards the end of the year so the delayed effect is not likely to have kicked in yet.
I guess articles like this are the VI counter spin to convince people that IR rises don't make any difference and property prices are unstoppable
