The BBC on Real estate

The BBC suggests watching neighborhoods carefully to predict which way prices will tend to go.

A particularly strong signal that house prices are booming is if an area is starting to ‘gentrify’.

Gentrification is the conversion, over a period of years, of less developed and desirable districts into thriving neighbourhoods occupied by professionals and young families.

The process is always a fairly visible one.
