Times vi Anne Ashworth does her bit to convince the world that house prices will rise
Feeble attempt - via a selection of bullish estate agents - to provide a neutral summary of UK housing. Some interesting comments at the bottom on the page:- [The government] are trying to fight the natural forces of a normal market correction but history shows that government price fixing always fails. Housing transactions will not increase until prices fall and people can afford to buy them. It is up to this new government to make the decision that they will continue with the manipulation of the market or let the market heal itself through a correction. The longer they leave it the more likely people will forget it was Gordon Brown that created this mess, tick tock the clock is ticking.
