Episode 60: Can the property super bubble be stopped?

Recommended Posts

Apparently in London, talking about a property bubble is no longer enough…now, it’s a super-bubble! Media hype aside, in this episode we ran through some ideas for how to calm London’s runaway housing market.


As the starting point for our discussion, we talked about the measures suggested in this Guardian article - from some that we liked (like bringing empty homes back into use) to some that we definitely didn’t (taxing landlords more!). We finished the show with some ideas of our own, and we’d love to hear yours too.

Do you believe that there’s a bubble, or even a super-bubble?


Which measures do you think will work to calm prices, and are there any others we missed?

Hi Guys

Is there any data showing how many properties were bought by landlord/investors over the last few months/years?


It would be interesting to see a breakdown of number/percentage of purchases by:

  • First time buyers
  • Second homes
  • UK investors
  • Foreign investors

Who is actually creating this super-bubble?!
