Does Two Months Indicate a Trend?

BBC News: House prices fell again in April, Nationwide says

UK house prices fell for the second month in a row during April, according to the Nationwide. The building society said prices dropped 0.4% in April, and the annual rate of price growth slowed to 2.6%, the weakest pace for almost four years.

What price can Generation Rent afford, though? 50% lower I guess.

Property Reporter: Gross mortgage lending down 19% year-on-year

"With people increasingly wary of rate rises, remortgage levels also remain high. Inflationary pressure to come means the first rate rise in a long time may no longer be too far off. Brexit-related uncertainty continues to see many would-be movers sit on their hands, and the General Election could see even more conservatism in the months ahead. Dire supply levels are also damaging demand. There's very little on the market and people aren't in a hurry to buy homes they sense are languishing rather than electrifying. At the high end of the market there has been an influx of cash buyers over the past nine months given the weakness of the Pound. But with Sterling seemingly in bounce-back mode, we may see this trend tail off."

Must be that Brexit thing again!

The Guardian: Lenders report 42% fall in loans to landlords as tax changes begin to bite

The CML says that if the March trend continues “we can expect to have seen around 70,000 buy-to-let house purchases in the last year. This compares with 142,000 in the 12 months leading up to the stamp duty change. That’s 42% lower year-on-year”. “It is too early to predict long-term effects of these measures on the balance of tenure. But we may be beginning to see the reversal of a long period of expansion of the private rented sector.”

Government meddling has made housing less affordable for first time buyers

BBC News: Better-off cashing in on Help to Buy scheme, research finds

Just over half of the people who have received taxpayers' money to help them buy a home under a government scheme did not need it, according to research. About 4,000 households in England earning more than £100,000 annually are in the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme. Official figures to December 2016 show more than 20,000 households who are not first-time buyers have been helped. The initiative, which started in April 2013, aims to make buying a home more affordable. But research conducted for the government found 57% of those who signed up to it said they could have afforded to buy without access to the scheme.

Telegraph: Britain's biggest landlord bans 'coloured people' because of 'the curry smell'

One of Britain's biggest buy-to-let landlords, Fergus Wilson, has banned 'coloured' people from renting his properties because, he says, they leave them smelling of curry. When contacted by The Sun Mr Wilson defended his comments, saying : "To be honest, we’re getting overloaded with coloured people. It is a problem with certain types of coloured people — those who consume curry — it sticks to the carpet.

The Star, Malaysia: China's capital controls start biting

In recent years, mainland Chinese corporations and cash-rich individuals have been the world’s largest buyers of real estate but this global property binge may subside soon. Since late November, the world’s second largest economy has been scrutinising the deals and projects of its home grown companies abroad and fund repatriation by individuals, particularly towards mega property investments, doubtful mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
