  • What exactly does “seen overvalued” mean?

    Is that because they don’t want to say “regarded as overvalued” or “viewed as overvalued” so they use the past tense (as if houses might not be regarded as overvalued anymore)??!

  • The article points at the number of mortgage approvals as a sign of a market looking good.

    I wish that I could drill down into that measurement and see if they mean stranger A buys stranger B’s house or if they mean that Mr A buys Mrs A’s share of the house as they go their separate ways. And does Mrs A become a lodger or rent directly from a BTL landlord or seek to buy her own place or .. ?

  • Maybe there is a slow wind of change?

    friday was a strange day, lot of shares dropped a fair amount of value..

    if the ash cloud continues you will see a dramatic effect on the economy and possible panic buying of food, now would also be a perferct time for a fuel strike, completely disable the country

  • I think it maybe beginning to sink in that housing is way out of kilter with wages, and the recovery is all but a sham.
    Crash part two after the election, unless lenders start throwing money at people again.

    [email protected] I agree it’s a horribly worded headline I would have written, House prices obscenely overvalued.
