New podcast series, starring our very own FP

Guardian: Money Guides: House prices

House prices continue to confound expectations, but the next 12 months bring predictions of further falls. So when exactly is the right time to buy or sell?
In the first of our series of Money Guide podcasts, Clare Catford is joined by the Guardian's money website editor, Hilary Osborne, chartered financial planner Jonathan Davis from Armstrong Davis, and Oliver Gilmartin, a senior economist at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, to try and unwrap the house prices riddle.

Well worth a listen - for those that can't be bothered with the full 16mins the meaty bits are @ 9mins in and 13mins in when JD reinforces his predictions on when the crash will resume.

Financial Planner isn't softening his stance; he says a resumption of the crash is "absolutely inevitable" due to the state of our economy.

JD has re-invigourated my stance.

Pity he didn't go onto advise the best place for deposits until we reach the bottom of the housing market, to be fair he wasn't asked by the interviewer.

Go on JD give us some tips.

There is no riddle behind house prices. By rights a house should be free with a rice crispie packet top. However crash gordo is doing everything in his power to keep prices artificially high in the hope of being re-elected (apologies - I believe he elected himself along with his totally insufferable sidekick mandelson)

He also sounded calmer than usual (sometimes, he sounds slightly unhinged!). More people will listen if you sound calm and logical than like you are about to lose your rag (no matter how daft what you have to refute).

An interesting choice of buyer, i.e. a couple who want to live in the property and are not expecting to make a profit. Notice also the difficulties in securing a mortgage, even with help from the Bank Of Mum & Dad.
