What値l happen to house prices?MoneySaving Poll Results

Poll Started 06 April 2009:

Over the last year according to Nationwide house prices have dropped 15.7% while Halifax says 17.5%. Yet in the last month Nationwide has reported a rise of 0.9%, compared to Halifax's 1.9% drop.

Sentiment is a crucial part of house prices e.g. when people think they値l drop, many hold off from buying, meaning less demand and prices do drop.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
