That’s according to the latest House Price Sentiment Index (HPSI) from Knight Frank and IHS Markit. To discuss the data, Oliver Knight, an Associate at Knight Frank, joined Share Radio Breakfast.

How much of a threat does Donald Trump pose to the Fed's independence?
Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen has insisted she will serve her full term until 2018, despite criticism of her and Fed policy by president-elect Donald Trump. However, while Ms Yellen may be staying put, Fed-watchers fear the next President could still remake the organisation in his own image with vacancies on the FOMC board waiting to be filled. Robert Van Egghen spoke to editorial fellow at the Peterson Institute and former Federal Reserve correspondent at the Wall Street Journal, Pedro da Costa, to find out how much of a threat Trump poses to the Fed's independence.

But which should be followed? To help cut through the noise at the end of another eventful financial week, David Miller, Executive Director of Quilter Cheviot, joined Share Radio Breakfast.

When will we see a US interest rate rise? Colin Cieszynski discusses with Matt Cox
A US interest rate rise could come "relatively soon" according to Federal Reserve Chair, Janet Yellen. Speaking to the Joint Economic Committee, Yellen signalled she was confident that jobs data and inflation would continue to support plans for a rate rise, with some analysts expecting one as soon as December. But is this the right time, so soon after the US election and with President-elect Trump's policies still uncertain?
