Get voting!

What will happen to house prices in 2010?

Today on This is Money, we launch our annual poll of house prices. In 2008 readers were bang on the money, although we suspect there was a large influx of bearish voters from housepricecrash.co.uk. We had more than 26,000 votes.

    “House prices will maintain slow growth next year min 0%-5% . I expected 0% growth last year and wasn’t too far off the mark. You can bet your life the current crop of doom merchants are last year’s saddo’s who predicted meltdown a year ago and who confidently told all their friend to sell their homes now and ‘rent like me’. The simple fact is that owning a home is historically a wise move. Over the decades house prices go up. Look at history, listen to reason and don’t listen to Capital Economics, Housepricecrash et al!

    – Simon, London”

    A good example of what the average voter currently thinks.

    Scarey, isn’t it!

  • I voted 15-20% down, but really expect them to be up 75%, especially in Cumbria what with water sports right on your doorstep and all.

    Are these before or after inflation? I voted for 0-5% down real terms. The difficultly now with house prices is knowing whether we will see inflation of deflation next year. How long can we keep on printing money?

  • “In 2008 readers were bang on the money, although we suspect there was a large influx of bearish voters from housepricecrash.co.uk.”

    Why “although”?

    Surely they mean:

    “In 2008 readers were bang on the money, possibly due to a large influx of bearish voters from housepricecrash.co.uk.”
