It’s a year since Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-Budget sent the property market into a tailspin. No sooner had house prices begun to recover than they were dealt another blow by higher-than-expected inflation figures. At the recent FT Weekend Festival, the FT’s House and Home editor Nathan Brooker asked Yolande Barnes of the Bartlett Real Estate Institute, Andrew Montlake, boss of mortgage broker Coreco and buying agent Henry Pryor for their predictions on where prices will go next. Money Clinic dropped in on the discussion to hear what the experts had to say.
