A new Ipsos MORI poll for Inside Housing has found nearly three times as many Britons disagree than agree that rising house prices are a good thing for the country.
Just under a quarter (23%) strongly disagree that “Rising house prices are a good thing for Britain” while a further third (34%) tend to disagree. A fifth (20%) either strongly agree or tend to agree that price rises are a good thing.
The poll shows the public more likely to think “Rising housing prices are a good thing for me personally” than think they would be good for Britain but, still, many more disagree than agree; by 41% to 29%. Again, just under a quarter (24%) strongly disagree.
Even among those who think rising house prices would be a good thing for them personally, more disagree than agree that rises would be good for Britain: 44% take this view, more than the 37% who think rises would be good.
Interviewing took place with 1,970 British adults aged 16+ between 13-23 September 2013. Data has been weighted to the known population profile.
