Is Real Estate Yesterday's Asset Class?

Recommended Posts

Just found this and thought it was interesting...sorry if it's been posted before.


The UK property scene, for example, is in a state of denial. The fact is, pure and simple if you want to sell a property today you will need to knock 15-20% off your imagined peak price. Otherwise, you will not get a single buyer - and indeed that is why many would be sellers report waiting months without a single enquiry.

But as soon as somebody does sell at this new, lower price a benchmark is set for the next seller - or the person who just has to sell because they are moving to another area. And so prices continue on down, as the seller who took a lower price will expect the same when they buy!

There are some good links from the site to other stories too.
