People not wanting house prices to rise

For a long time it's seemed weird to me that on the news, they report house-price-rises with a big grin and house-price-falls with a big frowny face. Many people lose out when house prices go up: people wanting to get their first house, and people wanting to trade up to their next house. Now there's a survey which confirms that more people want house prices to fall than rise (though even more want them to stay the same).
