House Prices: Would you prefer them to rise or fall?

For the first time in many years it's been reported there’s an annual fall in house prices (by 1%). For most things, falling prices benefit consumers. In house prices they help first time buyers and upgraders, but are worrying for those with little equity in their homes or those planning to sell.

What’s your instinct? Which of these would you prefer?


A. Big house price rises.363 votes (5 %)
B. House prices rising but slowly.1,444 votes (20 %)
C. Stable house prices.1,737 votes (24 %)
D. Gradual lowering of house prices.1,500 votes (20 %)
E. Major crash in house prices.2,323 votes (32 %)
