One thought on “Leave property alone its on the way down

  • I sent a comment to this (on as I felt strongly enough to post one! is usually pretty bullish about property prices, and (by the title of the website) promotes self-interest. There was a blog last year discussing the positives of gazundering that understandably stirred up a bit of feeling – you can see where it’s pitched.

    However this was a great article that will be read by a boatload of folk who have invested in property and I anticipate a lot of disagreement on the site. But what HJ says is perfectly correct. The data that’s coming out of the city today is looking increasingly grim – and that’s despite apparent increases in house price sales volumes. I think what we’re seeing is a temporary upward blip that’s going to return to a fall once unemployment starts to bite harder. I’m seeing friends start to lose jobs or, for those who are self-employed, find it harder to secure work. On one hand it’s good that house prices are declining, but overbearishness means that we may all suffer collectively.
