Obvious But Important Point.....

Recommended Posts

..."ah well even if houses do drop 50% they've already gone up 100% so we're still quids in!"

I reply that my 50% drop is the SAME figure in actual £s as their 100% rise.

I know it's obvious but so many people I mention this too are amazed and almost don't believe it!

1) Buy house for £50,000

2)It's value goes up 100% to £100,000

3) It's value then drops by 'only' 50% to......


Good eh?

Interesting that it works the other way around as well – if we are 50% overvalued relative to earnings it would only take a 33% fall to restore the balance, and spread over 5 years at 4% earnings growth this reduces to a 19% nominal fall. ;)
