  3. Some more unintended consequences of rampant house price inflation.

  6. House prices to stay high forever, predicts ex-Bank of England guru http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/06/28/house-prices-stay-high-forever-predicts-ex-bank-england-guru/ A century ago only around 10pc of the UK population owned their own homes, so further falls from today’s levels would not be without precedent. Well there we go, the expert must be right, close the forum and let's find something else to moan about.
  7. Hurrah for reckless lending. Bring back the 125% mortgage and let's get this market cooking on gas! HPI drivel from the Telegraph below http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/09/10/resilient-housing-market-prompts-banks-to-keep-95pc-mortgages-fo/

  15. Seems to be saying that the news is now decided by corporations paying for advertising. Makes you wonder what else is going on, VI BTL etc, be careful what you believe.
  16. The Equity markets seem to think so with the DAX at all time highs. Telegraph today http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11354996/Francois-Hollande-European-Central-Bank-will-start-QE-on-Thursday.html

House price growth stagnates as UK buyers "low ball" greedy vendors The embeded article comments will be interesting on this one I should think: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/houseprices/11332217/Deluded-sellers-and-sky-high-house-prices-have-stalled-the-property-market.html

  19. Apologies if already posted. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/investing/buy-to-let/11310826/Rent-controls-would-spell-disaster-for-thousands-of-buy-to-let-investors.html Putting aside for a moment the rights and wrongs of rent controls in general, it's interesting how they have entered into the realm of acceptable discussion over the past few months. One might conclude that the ground is being prepared for them. A couple of things that jump out at me about the article: Civitas has proposed a fairly mild form of rent control. Capping rent rises to the inflation rate. How does that work in a deflationary environment? Also, this would obviously be meaningless unless it was made more difficult to evict tenants every 6-12 months, so rent controls of any sort would have to coincide with significant reform of tenancy law. The author focusses on interest rate rises, it seems rather unlikely that rates will rise any time soon unless there is some unforeseen economic event. Also, the notion that rents will naturally rise when interest rates rise is clearly a fallacy. They didn't fall when interest rates fell, so why the assumption that they are directly correlated?

  21. Just how built up is England? Enter the name of a town or city in the search box in the map above, or zoom in to find out where the highest proportion of land is used to provide England’s homes. Where can we find the room to build the 300,000 homes a year economists say we need?
  22. Nigel Wilson says plan for levy on £2m homes is 'poor economics' that will reduce supply of property http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/labour/11191479/Labours-mansion-tax-will-create-housing-shortage-for-young-says-Legal-and-General-boss.html They don't like it up 'em. There are so many vested interest opinions stated as truths in that article it's unbelievable, but my favourite quote is this. It's strange when money obtained by sitting on your backside and adding no value the economy for 20 years is described as being 'justice'. Kinda sums up what's wrong with our economy, don't you think? The rant drones on and finishes with an unrelated couple of paragraphs about UKIP's chances in the Rochester and Stood by-election. I'm sure the average Ukipper is really sympathetic of the Kensington and Chelsea elite and the injustice stalking their unearned property gains.
  23. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11173422/House-prices-Now-is-the-right-time-to-buy-that-home.html Good bit of ramping by the Telegraph. Let's get the property market rising again before the next election. Of course, it's beyond anyone in the establishment to examine whether an economy where there's a "right" and "wrong" time to buy a home is in fact completely dysfunctional, and whether reducing a basic need - adequate shelter - to an act of financial speculation is a fundamental failure of the economy work for those who create value within it. It even suggests you move to Hove (which I'm sure is lovely) not because you might want to live there, but purely because it is somewhere you can buy a modest family home in the South East for the bargain price of £500k. But don't think about it too hard. Just get that 5x mortgage, now, before you miss the boat.
