Poll: Is now a good time to buy a home?
Two house price reports are out today – both say house prices still falling, but one says that slide is now very slow. Tell us what you think…

TWO REPORTS ON house prices have confirmed that average prices are still dropping. However, while the report said that the average price fell over 7 per cent in the last quarter, the report indicated that prices were dropping at a much slower rate – 1.4 per cent. also said that the number of properties currently for sale is at its lowest level in four years.

Taking all this into account – you can read a further breakdown of the reports here - do you think that now is a good time to buy property? (Feel free to vote, whether you already own a property or not – we’re interested to know how positive or negative people feel about the level of property prices now.)
