Who/what Controls House Prices ?

Recommended Posts

Its bugging me as to why house prices are so expensive

Why put people out of the market ? only someone evil/landlord would not want everybody to have a home ? how many do you need for gods sake.

If stocks are manipulated and the gold price is held artifically low then why cant house prices be controlled. Is it a ploy to create homes just for the rich, or only develop 1/2 bed flats for FTB so they cant raise kids and have a family due to population control; or is it the simple fact that more liquid needs to be pumped into the system and houses are an excellent source to launder paper money ? Who decides what the house is worth, have bricks gone up in price ? Just doesn't seem to add up. Why all of a sudden does a house price increase 100% in less than 5 years ? sorry for asking a stupid question, but why ?

Can the forum give opinions on whether natural economic forces control house prices or if banks who need to flood more money into an economy built upon consumption, do so and therefore force the prices up, releasing the money, hence; manipulate the market.

why why why are they so god damn expensive !!

Has the world gone mental ? or am i just losing it.?? :huh:

Thats an easy one, wages have risen about 30% and borrowing costs have fallen by 40%, so folks affordability has increased by 100%, gready sellers not wanting to miss out on a trick adjust their prices to take up the slack.

property is an asset class just like gold,bons+shares.

if one is underperforming you would expect another to rise to compensate as they move in different cycles,you just have to know when to swap.

Whats not so easy, is that natural resoucres have risen alot more sharply than either and who takes the slack from that ? Manufacturing is struggling due to the metal price increase and energy bills have adjusted as well, so have council taxes.

An IT consultant working in support was paid £30 ph in 1986.

Today an IT consultant working in support is lucky to get £20ph

Where is the 30% pay rise ?
