Comments on: UK would gain from homeowner tax switch Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: mjturner Sat, 09 Mar 2013 13:11:37 +0000 Isn’t there a problem in that people always have a demand for housing services, and so an inflationary gain in house prices is offset by an equivalent gain in the cost of future housing services? ie if you live in a 100,000 house, and it rises to 200,000, and you want to move to the identical next door house, you will be 50k down, but not better off?
