It's a bubble waiting to burst, where's the money coming from ? not self certification mortgages.

Of course it's a bubble, pumped up by artificially cheap money and the appalling "Help to Buy" from a supposedly free-market supporting party.

It annoys me that people link rising house prices with a "recovering" economy. That only applies to people who own properties with the intention of selling. If I am EVER able to buy a house, it will be to LIVE IN.

The British obsession with home ownership has been exploited to the full by speculators buying land up and sitting on it to drive up demand...It doesnt help either that our open borders since 1997 have allowed far too many into our already crowded island. The governments (successive) refusal to allow reinvestment of money raised by sales into new council homes for the lower paid is a crime, there is nowhere for those who cant afford a mortgage to go, except into the hands of slum landlords who charge inflated rents on sub standard properties. I cant see a way out of this problem in my lifetime, its my children and grandchildren i feel sad for

I recently tried to sell my home to move up the ladder. I had no trouble finding a buyer but when it came to buying a new property, despite having more than a 25% deposit and a solid mortgage, I kept being overlooked for cash buyers and first time buyers. The Estate Agents in this city are worse than useless. In six months I didn't meet one that inspired anything but distrust and I encountered every main agency in the city. Totally disillusioned I took my property off the market. The Help to Buy scheme is creating a dangerous bubble. The government must look at curbing investment buyers who are gobbling up homes.
