    Past midday and no comments on this unreliable report. Summer holidays or collective ennui; who knows.

    Their figures are nowhere near as reliable as the recent Nationwide ones 🙂

    Commenting, Martin Ellis, housing economist, said: “I’m not sure that I can keep up this charade” “If we park enough bad data off sheet and use complex statistical manipulation then we can make these things read anything that we want”. “By the way that was off the record what I really meant was that house prices are increasingly difficult to forecast as some keep getting sold and new ones arrive on the market nearly every week now”.

    @1 I can’t blog at work anymore, apparently it undermines my productivity and is an abuse of corporate resources. Fortunately I can be just as unproductive by staring out of the window.

    I’ve done a bit of a napkin sketch (haven’t double-checked the maths):

    Average prices peaked about 199,000
    Add 4% compound inflation for 4 years: 232,800 (ish)
    Current average 162,417
    232K->162K is about a 30% drop

    Or, to put it on the same scale as price rises, that’s the “reverse” of a 43% rise.
