  • before jumping in, wait for prices to start moving up again, say after the first year of price gains above inflation

  • It would be very interesting to see the sales figures for pre-owned homes, its amazing how such stories are spun. “House Sales Soar” instead of “House prices Bomb” can’t wait to see how a domestic story of this ilk is presented in our media!

    Indeed, but not yet – prices have much, much further to fall. The downturn has just begun. Case of dead cat bounce fooling speculators.
