A poll by Reuters predicts that house prices will continue to rise but that a crash is unlikely.

The survey asked 25 analysts for their predictions, and more than half think that the market will peak this year, but hasn’t yet.

They also predict that, although the housing market is overvalued, as interest rates rise, the market will cool.

The consensus is that we will not see a crash largely because of tougher lending regulations.
