    If wages increase so will house prices. I think putting up interests rates and restricting the property margins property developers makle will help. Maybe there needs to be more sales tax as well, so if you were selling a house for £200k you would have to pay 10% tax on that which is £20,000!. This may make people think twice and keep lower the prices to avoid this tax.
    I hate to say it but government interfering with private sector profit margins is not IMO a particulary attractive solution.

    No but these companies are taking the mick, near me they are pulling down perfectly good buildings to build shoody flats which sell for £300k for a 2 bedroom luxery appartment. Its a joke and they are built badly too.

    $300k. Sounds a lot. But then again, how much do they cost to build? Probably making 10%.

    Nope they won't cost anything like that to build, they employ cheap labour skivies to do trade mans work, hence they are badly built. There is no way a small flat can cost anything like £250k to build.

    Estate egants are pushing up prices all the time in my area and their behavour is disgusting. All it can lead to is house price crashes.

    My parents paid £15,000 for their house in 1980, its worth £180k now so its a tidy profit.
    Really? You've never told us that before.
