    Could it be the wrong kind of summer slime?

  • ‘Rightmove figures reveal that July asking prices were on average £236,597, but the new Land Registry figures show that the average house price in England and Wales is now £161,479. This reveals a significant gap between the prices demanded and the prices homes are actually selling for. A house is, after all, worth only what someone is prepared to pay for it.’

    That’s a 30% difference.

  • Indeed. will.

    Let’s go further. There simply isn’t the funding in circulation to support the ‘notional value’ of housing stock in aggregate. And there will never be for Britain in the future, regardless of the misguided attempts by the Tory wing to try and stall everything until other economic fundamentals catch up. Which they won’t, as no alternative platform was laid down over the last ten years to replace over indulgent consumerism and corrupt financialism.

    House prices will fall under the weight of future distress – sad though it is to say it. Everyone pays the price, in one way or another.
