Are Nationwide falseifying figure

Nationwide house price Index Jully 2007

Are the Nationwide falsifying their long term trend figures? If you scroll down in the press release from July 2007, you will notice they are reporting a long term trend of 2.7% a year. Since then we have had a fall of nearly 20% and they are now reporting a long term trend of 2.9% as featured on the right hand side of this website.

    No falsifying here, bb, just basic mathematics.

    Over the past 2 years, even though house prices have been falling, the average house price has still been above the trendline. Therefore the trendline will have been increasing over this time.

    We have only just crossed the trendline. It will take several months of prices being below the trend for the trendline to fall significantly.

    Back in 2001 (house prices having been booming for five years already) the trendline was only 1.5%.
