YouGov: House price changes will 'surprise' Londoners

A lot of people will be "caught by surprise" in terms of rising house prices in the capital, YouGov Director of Political and Social Research said today.

Commenting on the new poll, which reveals that an overwhelming majority of Londoners believe that house prices will go up, Joe Twyman said:

It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about the next year or the next five years, overwhelmingly Londoners believe that house prices will continue to rise in the capital, and that their own house will also increase in value.

If house prices are a bubble, a lot of people are going to be caught by surprise when it bursts.
