    That's a crap chart - in most places prices won't have changed since 2004 with all the gains between 2000 and 2004 as banks moved from a 3+1 mortgage rate to 3 to 4 joint earnings.

    any evidence to that statement? in manchester prices are rising like 6% a year for the last couple of years at least and that is what the chart is showing. However blackpool probably has the same 80k properties as 10 years ago still waiting to sell

    Figure 5 lets you track price changes per region from 2005. I suspect Manchester will get a sharper correction than most if/when it happens.
