    Default Nationwide says average house price is down 30k

    Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. house prices dropped by the most in at least 17 years in October as banks tightened their grip on credit and the prospect of a recession deterred potential buyers, Nationwide Building Society said.

    The average cost of a home fell 14.6 percent from a year earlier to 158,872 pounds ($261,000), the largest decline since the survey started in 1991, the Swindon, England-based mortgage lender said in an e-mailed statement today. Prices slid 1.4 percent from September

    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    That's certainly rubbish as far as my area is concerned. A neighbour sold for 324,000 pounds in September, and they had been after that same price for a year.

    "the Swindon, England-based mortgage lender" i.e. Nationwide, based in Swindon, England.

    Pound dropped almost 20% against dollar, so from this point of view UK house prices dropped big time even without face value dropping 15-20%. Problem is that UK is not exactly Spain or Florida, the main foreigners who come here to buy houses are probably those who want safe heaven for their capitals as no questions asked in this country so long as you've got lots of money. Those people however do not buy average houses.
