Renting/buying And Hpi

Recommended Posts

It seems to me we are now in a crucial phase of price correction.

Many FTBs are holding off buying till prices come down.

So they are renting/living with parents/sharing etc.

With prices still not dropping fiercely, it may still be reasonable

strategy for BTLs to maintain their present properties or even

buy more.

This seems to me a very delicate balance.

Tip it one way, just a little, and prices stay high, people keep renting.

Tilt the other and BTLs start selling - the whole thing starts to shift

towards definite price reductions.

Question is, how big a factor is this in the whole market ?

No, because as the economy tips people will look for lodgers move back with there parents leave the country, or return to there own country, rental demand will decrease.

Yep. Having been looking around for a place to rent lately it seems obvious that quite a few people are taking in lodgers to help pay their mortgage right now.

The reality is that there's a huge oversupply of housing in this country (be it living with parents, sharing a house, living as a lodger, etc), it's only decent affordable houses that are in short supply.
