Kate Faulkner comments on Report Headlines:
“It is great to see property prices and the market turning the corner after six long years. However, as an industry, we have a duty to advise buyers, sellers and investors based on accurate reports, not hype and speculation. The reality is, since 2000, property price growth in England and Wales has grown at an annual average of 8.3% (Land Registry). So all property prices are doing – nationally on average – is recovering to normal annual growth rates.”
