Bels,

I came across the website below which I haven't looked at in any great detail but thought that it might be of some use to you..............

The graph of average house prices in the Uk over the past 30 odd years on the front page makes interesting reading. Better explained; click graphs and average house price.
From 1989, the end of the last real estate boom, it took prices 13 years to recover.
At the moment we are 1 year into a decline and still well over the long term trend. I think the graph is telling us that it very likely prices will fall significantly from here.
Not a time to be going home and sinking one's hard earned into bricks and mortar. Not just yet anyway.
Another interesting point is that, from my view, the graph dismisses the fact of 'safe as houses'
Make up your own mind.

I'd agree with that but one thing I would add to Backwards-Robert's post is that -

There's nothing tastier than a Scotsman stuffed with black pudding and haggis.

Mickey, surely you can think of a better pick-up line than THAT! :)

Of course I can, but sometimes I look for quantity, not quality.
