Where Have All The Houses Gone

There are so many houses being built at the moment, it’s as though we are racing to a certain point from which we cannot build anything else for the remainder of this millennium.  For some reason, the office national statistics seems to be thinking there are millions of young families all desperate to buy their first home – there are literally thousand being built every month on the outskirts of every major town and city.   It is possible that the original renting market has all taken it into their heads to buy instead, but this is cannot be the case.  There are many areas where there is an equal number of rental agencies screaming for more stock of good, clean rentable property for their never ceasing waiting lists.   It must just be there are far more young and ‘next stage up’ families out there needing to get settled.  An estate agent’s dream scenario in fact!
