New Beemers all round – I see green shoots!
"House prices in parts of Lancashire are on the rise at the start of 2009 - with Preston leading the way. New figures released by the Land Registry, the official government register of all (sic) property sales, has revealed the average cost of a home in Lancashire is £154,922, an increase of 1.3% in three months up to December. In Preston, prices were up 6.1% in the same period......Estate Agents across the county said the prices are signs of the green shoots of recovery for the area's property market...." Blah, blah, blah. At least they used quotation marks for the headline.
