The article analyzes the status of social housing in Great Britain. There will be an initial slowdown in house price growth due to interest rate changes, resulting to buyers' withdrawal from the market. As interest rates start to fall, buyers will return to the market in increasing numbers. As a result, the supply and demand imbalances will ensure that high levels of inflation will return to the market.
