  • down 1.2% for June against up 0.8% last June from the preious month.

    I guess this is the first sign of owners realising they may not be able to sell a house with the (It was worth this much last September therefore I will only sell at that level) attitude. Combined with valuations from starving estate agents.

    The 1.2 % reduction is effectively irrelevant, but it’s the direction at this time of year that’s important.

    I suspect we will see these asking prices falling now most months.

    I also expect to see the momentum in monthly asking price falls gather pace.

    The best places will always sell (at the right price) but for 85% of houses price reductions will be the only way forward.

    As the news gets worse (which it will) we will start to see more ‘urgent’ sales taking place and faster falls in asking prices as people will just want to get out with something rather than loose everything.

  • “Sales are still happening, and there is a pent-up demand for the
    right properties at the right price.”

    I see the usual “pent-up demand” argument has been presented with a caveat. It’s about as useful as saying “There are still people buying houses.”
