Following house prices is almost a national sport at this point. Every week or two some company will release their index of the latest house prices and every time the media will jump all over it.
Why? Well, because we seem to love reading about it.
It's not entirely surprising either: Buying a home is one of the biggest investments we'll ever make. Seeing that investment go up in value can be exciting and rewarding... As for when prices are falling, there's nothing we love to hate reading more than bad news.
In other words, the flood of house price headlines aren't going away any time soon.
