More bear nibbles

UK house prices: falls to come

"Investors in British residential property are naive. They should look beyond the most recent data: the fourth consecutive month of slowing house price falls (according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and values only 5 per cent below pre-crisis peak (LSL Acadametics). The fundamentals still point to a big drop in prices... The effect of higher rates on housing could be significant. The 75 basis point increase expected by the market will raise average mortgage payments 8 per cent to £722 per month, estimates Capital Economics – enough to reduce offering prices"

    It means “apol’s” (short for apologies) but then you hit the wrong letter on the keyboard and type “s” instead of “a”.

    Seeing the odd reduction in Cambs, but not by much – They’re still well over priced. Mostly very static though. Still think we’re going to trundle along as is, unless we have a catalyst of some sort (Given up on IR increases!). Any other suggestions for Catalyst?

    -Unease leading to mass protests
