    I think they are behind the curve on this and prices have been falling in some areas in the SE for the last six months.

    Where I have a flat one sold in Nov 2015 for £290k, another came on the market some months ago at £325k, price reduced end of Oct. 17 to £295k and still no interest.

    Property became unaffordable in the SE, now I think people are sitting back and waiting for the correction.

    This thread is worth revisiting for people’s thoughts last year -

    Your figs don't surprise me

    Of course this is the Govt Goal

    If they can hold prices where they are an lets say inflation is 3 % over the next 5 years and property is not rising in value its  15% drop in real terms for new home owners

    The medicine is taking effect

    This is the very reason I have said Stagnation is on the cards for how long god knows that's above my pay grade.

    Any nationwide report has to be taken in that context

    Its very very broad so it waters down any individual efforts  which is of course what really matters

    Statistics are just a group of numbers looking for an argument

    If you dont stagnate then your own individual  house investment purchase should not stagnate

    You can beat easily the average annual house price growth on the day of completion if you buy well 

    As Dolf De Roos says in his book Real Estate Riches Chapter 4 - `Beating the averages easily`

    And of course  its your own house that matters not the next door neighbours, let alone  the wider nation

    Select the right house in the right street in the  right estate in the right  town in the right county and buy at the right price then your own house price can grow far greater than the average

    I bought a house in 2017 - It grew 19% in one day

    So dont stagnate - Be free flowing and then you can beat the averages easily

    Excellent 40% return on your pension .DL 

    But you digress . This article is about house prices not pensions

    Individual strategy can inspire people to beat the general house price stats in newspapers

    No I don't I used the cash in my pension to build my new estate office

    so its still property JC

    my Pension will charge rent for the office space

    so its all property related

    My Pension fund grew 40% day one and I use if for a new office which will also be worth more when its built

    and its all tax free

    No No No

    You said I can make 19% on one deal (one swallow dosent make a summer)

    I said I put money into my pension and made 40%  I do that time and time again with profits

    You said has nothing to do with property investment

    I said I use my funds to build and office

    the result I gain 30% in a valuation

    and I get Tax free rent into my pension

    Its all about property

    what is there not to like

    I avoid all taxes and I am still in property

    The article is about general house prices in the UK not about pensions and new estate offices

    You invested 10K in a pension  .

    What did the pension invest in to get a 40% return day 1 ?

    40% is the Tax relief

    I put in 15k and with the help of HMRC its worth £21000 tax free
