Spring is traditionally a time to start house hunting. But despite a steady rise in house prices last year the figures from the Halifax and Nationwide last month showed a drop.

Has it put you off buying or selling? Or are you a first time buyer who can't get a mortgage? Are you desperate for house prices to fall further so you can at least get on the housing ladder? Do you want to move and can't? Or is there no sign of a recession in your area?

Perhaps you think our economy relies too heavily on house prices. We want to hear your views for our phone-in.

Julian Worricker chairs our phone-in every Tuesday. To take part on the day call us on 03700 100 444. (Calls are answered between 10am and 1pm every Tuesday: standard geographic charges apply and calls may be included in your telecom provider's call package. Calls from mobiles may be higher.).
