The article provides a forecast on the housing market in Great Britain in 2006. Forecasters agree that house prices overall are likely to stabilise by 2006. The Halifax was forecasting a 2% fall in house prices, while apocalyptic business consultants talked of crashes of between 10% and 30%. London and the South East England will again be the big winners, along with East Anglia, but the firm gives a rosier overall prediction of mainstream prices rising 2.5% across the country, with top-end country houses rising 4% and prime central London up 7%.
