    Better late than never. Barry, thats been floating around since 2005 (see the bbc.co.uk dates in the clips) when we had a mini dip. The BOE cut rates quickly and inflated it some more, but it looks like prices peaked Q1 2007.

    I just stumbled upon it via random click yesterday.

    I’d love to know became of Kirstie Allsop’s boast, and if he was ever taken to task for it. Reminds me of David Seiders, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, who was widely disparaged for his absurd forecasts for US Housing . . .

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for the post. I think the UK house market is lagging behind the US, but is set for a similar fate to what the US housing market is currently experiencing.

    I was wondering if you were going to touch on the UK housing market. Although you are US-based and focused maybe you can continue to post on the UK housing situation also.

    Thanks
