New JRF report on housing market volatility

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has today launched an interesting new report on how volatility in the UK housing market could be reduced.  Specifically, the report examines:

  • how improving housing supply can limit volatility in the long run;
  • how using credit controls and reforming taxation could limit volatility in the short run;
  • how promoting financial capability among borrowers and responsible lending could be combined with an improved safety net to limit mortgage arrears and repossessions;
  • the possibilities for developing alternatives to home-ownership.

Read the full report, or the Executive Summary, here.
