    Phil Spencer is a TV presenter, no? What qualifies him to have any valid opinion on the overall property market? Oh yes, he is Director and founder of Garrington Property Finders which is … err…. failed….

    Phil Spencer sees the property market across the whole country and as a commentator has a valid opinion.
    Here’s a few facts to add weight to his comments: the housebuilding industry has ground to a halt with even the most optimistic commentators predicting 60-70,000 properties being built this year (the Government have indicated they want 220,000 built each year for the next 10 years). The population is still growing and some think will top 70 million by 2031. It doesn’t take an economic genius to work out that the supply and demand curves miss by a mile.
    Property prices will rise and will do so dramatically unless the goverment take urgent steps to restart the housebuilding industry
