Unfortunately they are building houses for the wrong end of the market so are effectively increasing the cost of houses for first time buyers.

They need to build homes targeted at 3rd ot 4th time buyers, hence start a flow of movers up the housing ladder, this will leave behind low cost older houses for first time buyers to purchase and drive the price down throughout the whole market.

Building loads of new houses for first time buyers does hardly anybody a favour.
