Rehash of press release pulled

House prices in Olympic slump

RM's August numbers are due to be released on 20 August, put they appear to have let the press release slip out before the "embargo". Naughty City AM published anyway and have been asked to remove the article from the online version, even though the URL still exists. The paper version of City AM carries the story and says that prices were down 2.4% in August "House prices clobbered in their biggest ever August fall..." is the opening sentence of the paper article. All very reliable :-)

  • If there’s one index that is almost guaranteed to be leaked in some form beforehand, it’s this one. Kind of expected when the official release time is 00.01 on a Monday.

    Welcome news though. Needs to be put into context of the record rises in the first half of the year still.
