'real' House Prices

Recommended Posts

i'm trying to

ascertain the costs associated with property investment (eg, mortgage,

council tax, ongoing repairs/running costs). These things are not

insignificant and often overlooked by people blinded by the potential

'gains' of property investment - gains being taken simply as the price the

house was sold for, divided by the purchase price.

Of course, this is old news but to date i have been unable to find data. My first thoughts were to

investigate the various articles on 'renting vs. buying', on the basis that

these articles must surely have encountered (and hopefully overcome) the

issue of running costs. Am I barking up the wrong tree? If so, any other ideas as to where I could look?

Rules of thumb I've seen suggests between 1-3% for maintenance.
