Is the house price crash over?

Over the last year according to the Land Registry UK average house prices have crashed by a mammoth 14%, yet recently the Nationwide index has shown prices are up 2.6% over the last three months.

Is this the end of the crash – as the economy picks up – or are we heading for another drop as sellers put properties on the market to cash in?

What do you think will happen to UK house prices over the next YEAR?
