Another example of BOE’s inflation policy?

''HOUSE prices are set to rise by £30,000 as the spiral of “boom and bust” ends and the market returns to growth from next year, leading experts claim today.''

  • I guess they are trying to replace the Daily Sport and that they are just trying to sell papers. With this on the front page they will sell more papers?

  • Can someone remind me when CEBR forecasts have been
    even close ? The worrying thing is who’s decided to put this tripe on the front page. No agenda
    from the elite controlled media to ram down the throats of the bumb debt
    drunk Brits who pay through the nose for everything.

  • In the Express house prices never rise or fall – they ‘plummet’, ‘dive’ or ‘soar’.

    High time they started printing this garbage on toilet paper, only then will it have a use greater than amusement.

  • I hope someone buys a house based on this statement and then takes the Daily Express to court if their 16% gain doesn’t materialise.

    Anecdotal for you:

    Overheard a conversation about buying a house in the pub this weekend. Didn’t quite catch it all, but what I did catch was:

    “Well, they’ve had no other offers, so if we just offer a bit more than we already have, I think that should work”.

    Yeah, no other interest, so better offer the vendor a bit more money to secure the property against the competition then! WTF!?! You go lower not higher you [email protected]!

    GC comment 10, yes it is possible that some people are that daft, but it’s also quite possible that the house was on for £100k, your people offered £85k but were turned down, and now that nobody has offered more than £85k, they think that an offer of £90k might be accepted.

  • general congreve says:

    @11 – I did think of that, but still, if no one else is offering anything, why up your offer to 90k just because the owner thinks their house is worth it? Just be patient, give an insulting offer and sit tight. It was his nagging wife that said it though, so he might be thinking the same as you to get it over with!

    Buyers should have several houses in mind, and make low offers on each. Never considering that one property in the ‘must buy’.

    Is that the new name for ‘cheeky offer’?

  • @3, 4 etc. “Daily Mail and Sunday Express both up in April

    13 May 2011

    Two national newspapers put on sales year on year in the royal wedding month of April, according to ABC: The Daily Mail (up 0.2 per cent to 2,100,300) and the Sunday Express (up 4.8 per cent to 601,666).”

    I’m sorry but what can I say? I mean, WTF can I say? I notice Diana’s been pushed off the front page.

  • From where did the Express learn the opinion that booming house-prices are not just normal – but desirable?

    Do the staff not have children who can’t afford to buy?

    I’m somewhat curious as to why you don’t give it a rest?

    What has that got to do with anything? Surely it’s none of your business?

  • box thinker says:

    The government wants to maintain the status quo of ever increasing house prices as do the bank of England,house sellers, and vested interests. Just long enough to sell off their portfolio of property that is. I want to buy a house for next to nothing so I can spend the rest of my money on things that matter and not filling the wallets of bankers and market investors who lie to us every day telling us there is a recovery going on so they can squeeze the last pennies out of our pockets. They are liars, prepare for the economic collapse..

  • Would the express be up for a little challenge ?
    They have reported that leading authorities think house prices will rise, in fact soar. Can they buy a house in any part of the country except London, then sell with their 16% profit and give the money to a worthy cause. Or are they not that sure.
    Any further reports of surity that house prices should rise could be tackled in this way. George Osbourne does not need the money but do you think he is buying houses outside of London at the moment.

  • Their value can rise by £30,000,000 if you like but no-one will still be able to afford them
