  • The 46% figure itself is probably meaningless. We know that gross mortgage lending is down by half (or whatever) and that sales are down by a third (or whatever) and that purchases by FTBs are down by two-thirds (or whatever), you can manipulate all these figures to average out a LTV of only 46%, but so what? it tells us nothing new.
