    It does state on the report there is renewed interest in property however, from a personal point of view, any new mortgage enquiries seem to come from First Time Buyers.

      Interesting post. I was at an investor forum 2 weeks ago, about 100 people in attendance. We did a straw pole amongst investors, the view centred around a 10% fall this year. Of course this is not scientific, but it does provide an interesting reflection on where we are in the market. My own view is that property prices will be affected significantly by mortgage supply. Recent comments in the press are suggesting the government are about to agree quantitative easing ... the effective printing of more money could improve mortgage supply and thus help stabilize proeprty prices.
