Triumphalist BBC!

UK house prices 'rise 9.9% in a year'

"The Office for National Statistics said prices rose strongly across the UK, with Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all picking up pace. London, where prices were were up 18.7%, remains the driving force behind the housing revival". "First-time buyers continue to experience more rapid price increases than people moving house" (..assuming you can afford the higher prices, of course).

  • Looks completely unsustainable. Well, not in a world without any demand…

    I fail to see how the fact and quote based article is in any way triumphalist?

    Usual BBC thinly veiled cheerleading crap. Only partly salvaged by a decent bit of commentary within the article.

    Shelter spouting their usual guff about part-rent/part-buy.

    Totally and utterly unsustainable.

    Andy Verity did a mini-series some years ago about house prices being too high and bound to crash – he’s definitely on ‘our side’. Trouble is, like the rest of us, he’s surrounded by people who love to point out that we were wrong all along – so (like the rest of us..) he has to tone it down a bit.

    I predicted in mid 2005 (when we sold) that prices would be no higher in 10 years time – the jury’s still out….
