Kate Faulkner comments on Report Headlines:
“The property price surveys are all in agreement that prices are rising. The discussions now though, are very much around – are prices rising ‘too fast’ and therefore causing an unsustainable bubble which will burst? In London, it certainly seems a few areas, such as Hackney, are racing away and year on year, prices are growing more than their long term annual average. However, just because prices are rising, doesn’t mean it’s not sustainable. We have quickly forgotten that first time buyers and other property owners who have had six years to save and contemplate moving. Over this time, only half the normal number of people have bought and sold, so it’s not really a surprise demand has grown quickly as soon as confidence has come back into the market. So we should be celebrating price rises which are heading ‘back to normal’ rather than fearing them. They are good for the industry and the economy.”
