Recessions And The Housing Market

Recommended Posts

The graph shows average house price to earnings ratio over the last 52 years.

The data is current to the 3rd quarter 2005, being the most recent data from Nationwide (the scale shows up to 04Q4)

The areas in red show recessions, this is based on an economist's definition of at least 2 consecutive quarters of negative growth.

I leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Hmmmmm..... can you see what it is yet.

I suspect that chart confirms what many have been thinking.

It makes sense to me that a recession would follow a reduction in consumption (spending) due to house price falls affecting consumer confidence.

have a look at the www.fiendbear.com site.

An excellent site for a bear.

I particularily read the comstock commentary every Thursday.

Houses in this part of the country, North Wales are still increasing.
