    Again more bad news

    Britain's struggling housing market remains mired in recession, with house-building at a 50-year low, official figures reveal, the Independent reports. The Department for Communities and Local Government said construction began on just 18,340 homes during the first three months of the year, 44 per cent down on the same period last month.

    I think there are definitely mixed signals in the media at the moment. Some are saying that there seems to be signs of recovery others are saying we haven't seen the bottom yet. I personally think we haven't hit the lowest point.

    You can't trust the news

    The news will give you conflicting information because they are out to get better ratings to fully understand what is going a property investor needs to have good fundamental knowledge of the housing market.

    This may sound funny to some people but I even made a business plan in my investment to make sure I could maximize my cash flow.

    Could not agree with you more, the press have their own agenda and property investors must know the market for themselves.

    I think the press simply make things up sometimes.

    I don't want to be to optimistic, however, I have a good feeling that things would be getting better for us in the coming years.
