What does 'Property Cycle' mean?

Property Cycle

There are two types of property cycle - the long term one and the annual one.

The Long Term Property Cycle refers to the way property prices rise over a number of years before falling back, usually as the economy goes into recession. Historical patterns suggest this cycle is about eighteen years long and follows the boom-bust cycle of the overall business sector.

The Annual Property Cycle refers to the way property prices move up and down throughout any given year. Prices are generally higher during the Spring and Autumn and lower during the Summer and Winter. For a full explanation on why this occurs see Understanding the Property Market.
