Times vi Anne Ashworth does her bit to convince the world that house prices will rise

The housing market news lowdown

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.

  • I ignore anything written buy that London centric, delusional, self interest, VI cheerleader hag.

    In the Cotswolds, nothing is shifting, unless marked with an asking price in line with SENSE and what the local market
    of buyers can afford (City money has gone, as bonuses this year and last paid in shares and options).
    Anyting else is not shifting, taken off, put on with a different EA … and not shifting unless there’s a sensible “new price”. Lots
    of that and this last week a massive tide of “open house” desperation. Meanwhile
    back at the centre of the property universe in Maida Vale, the clueless still write this sh1t.

  • The Times has long felt like a newspaper with an almost political loyalty to high house prices. A blind loyalty, mark you, that ignores credit crunches, rising unemployment, and shrunken transaction levels to name but a few.

    Is this part of some pact between Murdoch and Brown? If so – for how much longer?
