Are You A Smug

Recommended Posts

Now normally I don't leap to the VI ramping stand whenever theres positive housing news.... but today in the times there is a clear example of ramping... its an article titled "meet the smugs... thiose who bought at the bottom"... there whole primise of the article is that the bottom of the market has been and gone and only a few got in there and had the guts to buy.

I do think, for what its worth, that the latest data over the last few months indicate that future falls may be less severe but I don't for one minute expect prices not keep falling for a while yet... for the times to say the bottom has long gone is perhaps the most bullish claim I have seen.

Could you put up a link? I need a good laugh this morning.

I am not "clinging" to the hope of further falls. I am totally secure in the knowledge of them and also know that when house prices bottom they will not shift in real terms for years.

Is it comedy week this week or what?

That was the fastest bottom since Mr Bolt last went for a run.

The Times is one of the leading contrary indicators - very accurate.

At the least, prices will fall slowly over the next two or three years.

At the most, they will fall precipitously from Autumn 09 onwards for another 12 months.

The current activity seems to be suggesting that scenario 1 is most likely

However, the underlying reality of the situation our economies are in suggests that scenario 2 is the way things will go. Nothing has fundamentally changed since this crisis started. Indeed, things have worsened in the real economy.

Time will tell

One thing I am certain of, house prices will not be going up for some considerable time. On this basis, I am quite content to wait and see which way thing will go. There is no need for anyone to panic or make rush decisions. At the moment, we are engaged in a phoney recession that has been perpetuated by low interest rates (which are set to rise in the near future), taxes that have not yet risen (but are set to do so in the near future) and mass unemployment that has only just got underway (and is set to continue to rise inexorably in the near future). When all three of these begin to really bite over the coming months there will be nothing left to hold the market up.

Hang in there folks

Now normally I don't leap to the VI ramping stand whenever theres positive housing news.... but today in the times there is a clear example of ramping... its an article titled "meet the smugs... thiose who bought at the bottom"... there whole primise of the article is that the bottom of the market has been and gone and only a few got in there and had the guts to buy.

I do think, for what its worth, that the latest data over the last few months indicate that future falls may be less severe but I don't for one minute expect prices not keep falling for a while yet... for the times to say the bottom has long gone is perhaps the most bullish claim I have seen.

Especially when they have run two articles this week:

Lenders derail house market rally

.....However, in a worrying trend, banks and building societies are pulling mortgage deals and raising rates, hampering borrowers’ attempts to re-enter the market.

Over the past three weeks, Woolwich, Lloyds and RBS have all withdrawn loans for purchases and have not replaced them....

Surveyors Valuations Taking into Account Further Falls

And the last one , not the Times this time to add even more weight to Bloo Loos "we live in land of broken chains."

Homebuyers left high and dry as mortgage offers are cancelled

How can anyone be "smug" about the profit they made whilst property prices were allowed to rise to levels that broke the banks, bankrupted the country and now have to lose some of the 149% they were allowed to increase since 1999 in order to fall back in line with lending on deposits (not RMBS), and loan to income etc.

Yes i'm very smug thank you as i know prices are connected to jobs, taxes, oil prices, and servicing debt and as much as they try to tell me it's warmer at night than in the day i know the truth.

For this cunning plan to work for Mr Brown he has got to keep the lie up for at least 3 months because that's the time taken from seeing a house and signing on the dotted line so unless we get a mejia blackout and people stop talking then i suspect the truth will come out and we will have a very dark cristmass indeed.

If we get the news in june/july that prices have fallen again which I expect we will, it'll be interessting to see what this does to headlines.

We always get a seasonal drop off around that time and so I would expect less positive house price news... but how will the papers interpret it ?

1/ We were wrong , prices have fallen again, get out quick?

2/ Always get rises and falls when prices have hit bottom ?

3/ Prices have fallen again, and this is only to be expected bearing in mind the market we are in. prices will continue to show rises and falls but falls will outnumber rises for a while yet (this is my view)

4/ So who got their noses caught in the bull trap then ? Prepare for armegeddon. ( this I know is the view of others).

As someone said on my posts when we completed in March, "You make your own crash". I was prepared for 20% further drop in price after completion but it seems family homes well priced in my area are selling very fast, and on my new estate the builders have sold all 2009 allocation of 4 / 5 beds already and are awaiting head office to release 2010 builds to be started early due to demand.

The next sale of the exact type of house as mine is due to complete this month and chatting to the sales girls they paid the asking price, which was still a reasonable £265k for a 5 bed. We paid £230k. Time will tell the truth as both will be on nethouseprices by the end of the year.

It's the OO holding out for 2007 prices that are stuck as they are at war with FTSE PLC listed builders wanting to shift new houses for cashflow at low margins to keep going.

Its quite clear that most areas and especially 'luxury flats' will see falls for a long time yet. All the new build flats in birmingham, manchester and london are still largely empty

EVERYONE who bought this year is smug.

Prices have NEVER BEEN lower.

Every house is AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN

VALUE has never been better.

course, these are the results of HPC.

lets look at the reverse

Prices? you should have bought last year mate,

Every house is an investment...buy or you will miss out

Borrowing has never been a better investment.

HPC= relief for the masses.

HPI= FEAR for the masses.

At the least, prices will fall slowly over the next two or three years.

At the most, they will fall precipitously from Autumn 09 onwards for another 12 months.

The current activity seems to be suggesting that scenario 1 is most likely

However, the underlying reality of the situation our economies are in suggests that scenario 2 is the way things will go. Nothing has fundamentally changed since this crisis started. Indeed, things have worsened in the real economy.

Time will tell

One thing I am certain of, house prices will not be going up for some considerable time. On this basis, I am quite content to wait and see which way thing will go. There is no need for anyone to panic or make rush decisions. At the moment, we are engaged in a phoney recession that has been perpetuated by low interest rates (which are set to rise in the near future), taxes that have not yet risen (but are set to do so in the near future) and mass unemployment that has only just got underway (and is set to continue to rise inexorably in the near future). When all three of these begin to really bite over the coming months there will be nothing left to hold the market up.

Hang in there folks

Completely agree. All the signs are there... and one of the biggest is that journalists the world over with little experience of the real world are itching to roll out good news to sell their god-awful copy.

Keep building up cash, in a year to 18 months it really will be king.

There are 10s of 1000s of square metres of 'lux' flats that are empty in my nearest city. Someone has to take a hit. This will work its way through. It has only just started.

I know I am already repeating what has already been said but:

House prices fell between 10% and 30%, depending on region, from the absolute peak.

They stopped falling when interest rates fell from roughly 5% to 0.5%.

This massive fall in mortgage rates for those on trackers stopped a lot of forced sales.

Clearly 0.5% is not a sustainable level of interest rates, they will go up, when they do new tracker rate customers are screwed.

The job market is terrible and more and more people are being made redundant. Who do you know who can confidently say they will be in the same job they are in now, earning the same money in 5 years time?

Given all that there is no way prices will increase rapidly and I can only see them declining slowly over the next 5 or so years.

I brought a repossession 40% off peak at the beginning of this year – I'm not smug because I know that an equivalent property will be on the market for the same or maybe less than the price I paid in the next three years.

OMG! That is so funny. People really don't have a clue do they. As the poster said above, when interest rates go up and with unemployment still increasing there is only one way the long term trend will go, once this 'spring bounce/bear trap is out of the way. There are anyway so few FTBs who can get on the 'ladder' now anyway, what with the new lending criteria.

The only question is will we see slow and steady falls for the next 3 years or big falls again after the summer.
