Housing market booming. Really?

We are constantly being told that the housing market is booming, mainly by the London-centric media. The truth is that away from London it is still struggling, if anything its getting worse, thanks to the sometimes insensible new mortgage rules.

And both main political┬áparties have policies that will have a negative impact on the housing market after the election.┬áLabour’s mansion tax, and the Tories subsidised new homes will drag houses prices down across the sector and remove what little confidence there is.
