House prices still have another 17% to fall despite recent rally says agency

Daily mail: House prices still have another 17% to fall despite recent rally says agency

Fitch Ratings said it expected the value of property to fall by a further 17% from its current level, leaving prices 30 per cent below their peak in October 2007.
A drop of this level would knock an additional £28,000 off the average price of a home, leaving it at £134,000 on the Nationwide measure

To me further 71% drop rather than 17% seems more likely, given the horrendously volatile financial market at the moment.

at least another 17% to the trend line - and another 10% below it.

I think 17% is about right. Economic conditions and unemployment are still bad and it's hard to get a mortgage but there is so much pent up demand, especially from first time buyers that as soon as people think they are getting a good deal prices will rise again (but not by much!).
