Further to my recent post on House builders and the housing market in the UK. I note today that the Bank of England is expected to announce measures to curb the market. Robert Peston who often has the inside line on official things like this has put out a good summary piece of the measures he expects, which I guess may get updated once the announcement is out.
They also have a more general news piece which covers the North South divided in the property market and includes an interactive calculator to see where you could afford to buy a home these days if that's of interest.
Finally for a hat trick from the BBC there is the final programme in this series, Business Boomers, which featured Amazon in an earlier show which was quite good. So in an inspired piece of scheduling, given the recent debate about a Housing bubble in the UK and how a rise in interest rates might impact on the house builders, plus today's announcement from the B of E - it looks like this episode about the housing industry should be interesting. So don't forget to set your PVR for 9 pm on BBC 2 tonight or catch up on it on the i-player or you could just watch it if your bored with the World Cup and have nothing better to do. Talking of which I saw that some punters actually won some money after betting at odds of 175-1 that Luis Suarez would bite someone during the World Cup - tasty.
