House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in comparing house prices with the UK stock market.

Has anyone got a graph which compares UK house prices with the FTSE100 or FTSE All-Share index over the years please?

More specifically, what about London house prices compared with the FTSE index?

Similar for total share return (including dividends) v. total BTL return (which may serve as a proxy figure for the owner occupier) including net rents?

Thanks

Interesting set of graphs @gf3.

The problem is that just looking at price trends heavily depends on the starting date. The only "fair" way of doing this would be to take a time horizon (say ten years) and for every month to month point measure a relative return. For example return Jan-80 to Jan-90, return Feb 80-Feb-90 etc. You either compare house prices + rental income v FTSE total return or house prices v FTSE, the latter being simpler to get hold of.

The data don't need to be inflation adjusted because both series are nominal. Should be easy to though together a graph of just prices (no income)

I'm considering as a retirement strategy gradually selling my BTL properties and buying an index tracker for the FTSE100 with the money. The net yield may be similar (net dividends v. net rents), and there will be none of the hassle of BTL. One drawback will be paying CGT on the sales.

Would anyone like to offer constructive advice or opinions about whether or not this would be a good or bad thing to do from an investment point of view?

Thanks
