The slow down is the only option and one day the market may just catch up.
In poor areas I fear that this may be a very long time indeed.
One additional problem will be crime in developments with only limited occupancy.
Just had a friend who came back from Majestic Hills and breakins are common but only looking for cash.
Slept with a base ball bat alongside his bed and next door he had a hammer.
They will need to get on top of this or the way forward will never be good.
