    UK house prices fell by 2% in June, according to the UK's biggest mortgage lender, the Halifax.

    The drop meant that prices were 6.1% lower than a year ago, with the average home costing £180,344.

    The lender said that average house prices were now at the same level as in August 2006.

    But it said that strong employment levels and low interest rates meant that the housing demand retained firm foundations despite price falls.


    Boomed!
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    It does make me laugh listening to the chief economists of banks and building societies, grasping desparately in a hopeless attempt to prop up their share price.

    Back to 2006. Exactly, you’d think that asset prices have gone back to the middle ages from how some people talk.

    In 6(ish) months, asset prices have reversed gains of the previous 18(ish) months.

    I think it's something to get excited about?

    One exception was the bloke from RBS, he did wait until they got their own rights issue off but then gave some uber doom predictions. I expect he'll be pensioned off quietly sometime next year.
