apart from green belt we need to let builders build wherever they want with minimal interference - we'd see a lot of affordable dwellings emerge with downward pressure on prices which will be of benefit to all
Quite correct followtheleader: Our Capital Return Plan combines the ordinary dividend together with a special cash payment programme. Under the special cash payment programme we anticipate proposing a special cash payment of £125m proposed with our FY16 results payable in November 2016, and a special cash payment of £175m proposed with our FY17 results payable in November 2017. We therefore expect to return around £678m of cash through ordinary dividends and special cash payments to our shareholders over the two years to November 2017, which equates to a total of 67.8 pence per share.
BDEV was a no-brainer around 370p and I take it there will be a special dividend paid again in which case it does look to be inexpensive. Don't you also get a shareholder discount if you buy a new house with them? This one? might be worth watching for some good gains. One of my tiddlers Westminster Group (WSG) has now started to post some good gains today after one of their loan for equity partners has just cleared selling the stock they converted and there is now no overhang. So much potential and things appear to be just starting to click together. There is big news promised by the end of July on a mammoth Memorandum of Understanding. Worth some research I would suggest. As they say dyor

Just to cheer everybody up; my daughter and her boyfriend have put a bid in for a house in a town close to London. They are in rented accommodation, having already sold, and only need a small mortgage. Turns out there are several people after the place and it's going to go to sealed bids this week.Not much of a downturn there then!
I'm in too. was surprised by the fall at the start of the day. share price starting to improve although only very slightly. hopefully an interest rate cut tomorrow will be the stimulus we need.
Great entry opportunity, I'm in.
Barratt Developments posted a trading update for the year through June: "The Group has traded well throughout the financial year, delivering a strong performance. (...) Total completions (including JVs) for FY16 were up 5.3% at 17,319 (2015: 16,447) units. Affordable housing represented 17% (2015: 18%) of total completions. (...) Total ASP (Average selling price) on completions in the year increased by c. 10.6% to c. £260K (2015: £235.0K), with private ASP increasing by c. 10.5% to c. £290K (2015: £262.5K). (...) Profit before tax for FY16 is expected to be up by c. 20% to c. £680M (2015: £565.5M), driven in part by increased completion volumes, growth in ASP and an increase in our share of profits from JVs."
Excellent news....all going well here.

Hopefully in the near future before too many more buyers are trapped in unaffordable mortgages if interest rates are ever normalised, plus everybody can blame or thank BREXIT depending on what benefits them the most.
rwlly, your right, there will always be a correction at some point.This year, next year, sometime!
Demand is still reasonable because people haven't lost their jobs.....yet...
There will be a correction at some point, rents are double that they should be to leave the consumer with enough spare cash needed for all the rest of their everyday living expenses. The only reason they are where they are is Government policy. They are completly devoid of any other ideas of how to get growth in the economy without extra government borrowing ie housing benefit, and of course the extra private borrowings created by the feel good factor of rising property prices. Gravity cannot be deffied indeffinatly. no good at spelling.
LOL ! Mug roulette addicted gamblers being burnt weekly.. NOTHING to do with Brexit. NOTHING has changed since 2008/2009 except massive continued increased Debt in bankrupt Britain. FTSE and all bellwether shares including all Banks and builders/construction have all been artificially inflated in recent years to ridiculous over valued levels to try and stop complete market collapse. They are ALL 35% to 50% Down in last 2-3 weeks. In 2008/2009 it was these same stocks collapsing which preceded severe recession... Last time BDEV sunk to 70p but wasn't there an old shares for new share issue like RBS, which was 10 old shares for 1 new share ? Regardless BDEV and all others will go into abyss this time. BDEV heading to sub 50p by end of year to April 2017, as worst depression/recession in history unfolds. Aviva/Standard Life and many other property based funds LOCKED preventing people from withdrawing their money invested.. This will domino onto High Street in months ahead to building societies like in 2008/09 with Northern Rock, Bradford Bingley and others.. For years banks have not got anywhere near the money for people to withdraw that they think is in their account on paper. What's happened in Greece and similar over last few years has always followed in UK. Within 18 months there is only extreme probability of partial martial law in UK with army on streets, social unrest/riots. Severe austerity under Thatcher mark 2 Terrible May reversing the reversed tax credit cuts upon millions with far worse cuts - With most people already not having money or being able to afford basic living.. The USA will also experience severe economic woes by December 2016 from US election uncertainty and outcome.. Any Fool enough to have any money tied up in shares will lose up to 90% just like many thousands lost up to 65% in 2008/2009. Eventually FTSE will collapse sub 2700 as unemployment exceeds 5 million. Britain having been bankrupt in reality for many many years.. What took many months from August 2007 to 2008/2009 is happening on advfn monitor within weeks this time. ALL bellwether shares which are barometer of reasonable strong economy or major recession inbound having collapsed up to 50% in just last 2-3 weeks alone. GOLD still climbing very nicely indeed. If for mostpart due to £1.29/$ BDEV, Persimmon and all others have still got over 75% to fall in the months ahead yet.. 2008/2009 was NOT a correction.. It was severe tremor of the earthquake catastrophe beginning to unfold now. BDEV will fall at least a further 75% in the weeks and months ahead, as will all other bellwether shares.. No money is safe in any share, or soon any uk bank or building society either. This will not "blow over".. LOL Aviva/Standard Life LOCKING people's savings invested and many others, and ALL bellwether shares being 50% down in last 2-3 weeks alone are severe EARLY WARNING SIGNS to get out of any shares ASAP. Those that failed to heed the warning signs in August 2007 onwards of wholesale lending market freezing for months LOST up to 75%. You will see army, curfews, and check points all over police state cctv Britain to stop riots and worse by April to September 2017 at latest. FTSE will tank sub 2700. The SUN is still shining at present leaving enough days to get out of any shares.. In 2008/2009 NOBODY believed RBS would collapse to sub 20 which is equal to it's 150p level today, or that BDEV would collapse to sub 70p, or that many including WLW, NRK, BB. and others would all go 0p Just like the 99% under state of normalcy cant see or believe the above is inbound, and WILL happen in the months ahead.... Be a fool and mock, then watch the reality unfold on Sky News/BBC/CNN by April-Sept 2017.
greater things are yet to come
Unlikely to be a correction like 2008. Still a massive shortage of properties and builders reporting customers still buying.Past recessions were sudden and unexpected. The B of E spreading doom and gloom and economists forecasting a downturn suggests to me that this will all blow over soon.
Looks as if the chickens are finely coming home to roost, a property market correction is about 10 years overdue.
Won't buy until at 100p given 3 commercial funds have recently been frozen.

Redrow today,plenty of demand.
Barony,I could agree with a lot of what you say, but with the job market chilling (and concerns about interest rate moves?) resulting in a cooling of property deals, the short-term reservation/sales results from the Housebuilders must be uncertain IMHO.Have any trading statements been made yet in this industry sector?Cheers, tightfist
We make houses for profit. People need more houses than we can build. All that has changed is uncertainty re London house prices. All the skilled people from Europe will stay on visas or as UK citizens and will still need houses and some will help to build them. The beggars and criminals will, hopefully, be sent home and will not need social housing. I voted Remain, but think this fall is overdone.
Without all the government help they would never have gone past 100p in the first place.
Fair value is now 100p
What a graph
