The property market is one of Britain’s great soap operas, with plenty of twists and turns and heroes and villains along the way.

At the moment there is a cliffhanger: will house prices start falling?

Steady growth has been swapped for a slide towards stagnation in the headline figures, but how much does that mask a regional divide, with things looking far healthier outside of London and the commuter belt?

In this Investing Show special, Andrew Montlake of mortgage broker Coreco, joins us to discuss what’s going on in the residential property and buy-to-let markets. 

He also looks at why mortgage rates are near their all-time lows despite a base rate rise and how long that could last.
