Ever-bullish Assetz muppet Stuart Law going all out for HPI over ONE YEAR: +4%, FIVE YEARS: +21.5%

And get this:

...We've seen two quarters now from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors on rental growth and it's the beginning of a decade of a rental boom. People won't be able to buy and it will be horrifying how unaffordable rental housing will be.

Merryn: So where will people live?

Stuart: In rental houses. They will just stop buying fancy handbags and hand the money over to landlords instead. If rents are going up by 5%-10% a year for the next few years then slowing down a bit, that will support house-price growth.

Class.

I wonder how many HPC trolls are Laws' employees.

Thus guy is a raving nutter! He is the the jester of housing Market analysts*. I've noticed that he doesn't seem to publish his Assetzzzz house price index anymore. Or at least I can't find it anyway! Maybe he only compiles one if prices are going up.

* can't call him an economist because he economic knowledge is plainly negligible.

While this Stewart law chappie is clearly as on the lunatic fringe as some of the 50% HPC sheeple... he does raise an interessting point which is that if one assumes growth will remain sluggish for the next five years ( not unlikely), that mortgages will get if anything harder to get ( quite possible with the FSA'a new laws), that banks won't have access to wholesale markets like they once did for mortgage financing ( highly likely), that rates will remain low , that consumer confidence will remain muted and that prices at best will nominally hold value but lose value on a real basis then I think we will certainly see a situation where rental demand pretty much can only go upwards.... whether or not this will be enough to offset the housing benefot changes is a another matter but I do think we could end the next five years with a larger number of people renting property proportionalately and a lower number owning property... not through choice I suspect but as a fallout of the overall situation.

My predictions, for what they're worth:

1 year: minus 7%

5 years: plus 15%

Ever-bullish Assetz muppet Stuart Law going all out for HPI over ONE YEAR: +4%, FIVE YEARS: +21.5%

Anyone whose 5 year predictions include decimal points is clearly talking the bovine equivalent of pig manure.

If you wanted to know the truth about the health of the buy-to-let market, the last person you'd ask is surely major BTL landlord, just like if you wanted to find out about safe driving on the roads the last person you'd ask is a fast car enthusiast!

Henry: Not that long. Look at how many July houses are on now at a lower price: 30%. We also know that average asking prices are £61,000 higher than average sale prices. An extraordinary gap

Am I right in saying therefore that the average house at £220k is going for £160k ?.. 27% below asking

Doesn't ring right (as much as I'd like it to)

anyone predicting a double digit increase in house prices in the next 5 years equally faecal IMO. Look again at this chart - http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/graphs-average-house-price.php It took 13 years for prices to get back to peak prices after the 90s crash and that was with 120% interest only LIAR LOANS. Unless you are predicting some as yet undisclosed reality masking initiative which the current government are not as willing as the last to do i can't see how you arrive at that but please do enlighten me.

I doubt house prices will increase at all over the next few years, however they will not fall by any substantial amount either. Everything has been done to support house prices/banks since 2007 and so shall this continue. Any significant HPC in the UK would cause carnage.

Live with it people. You cant change anything.

I read that to mean that of all the houses recently coming to the market, 30% of them have been lowered in prices. That is most likely to mean a third of the new instructions have come down in price by 5%, while the other two thirds haven't budged in price.

jeezus

house tenure is far far more elastic than you or stuart give it credit. end. of. if people have no money they won't throw every last poenny at savign their landlord's investment - they'll save the gucci handbag and BMW and instead live in a smaller home or share, BECAUSE THEY CAN.

Read the article, these people didn't see anything wrong back in 2004-06 - so I don't pay much attention to what they say now.

Personally - how will house price be in the future?

They will be a bad-word - just like DotCom boom, Equitable Life and Timeshares.

+1.

If you think you can predict next month to 1/2 a percent you don't know what you're doing. If you think you can predict 5 years from now you're just plain mad.

It's called bulls*** for a reason.

Nice to find a realistic bear on this site. I was beginning to wonder if they existed...
