Sharing Economy And House Prices

Recommended Posts

With the rise of the sharing economy, powered by smart phone apps, will escaping to the sparsely populated countryside become a thing of the past with a consequent effect on house prices? Will society become more urbanised or suburbanised as this is the best way of taking advantage of the opportunities that sharing offers?

Interesting because sharing should reduce peoples need to have stuff! Why have a huge house which you fill with c*ap when you can just have a room and borrow everything you need!

The only thing I really about is how much labour it costs me to put a roof over my head, whether that is through buying or renting. At the moment the cost of either is too much but much worst, in London at least, to buy than rent! I spoke with my LL today (he came round to do a little repair) and he believes the flat I am currently living in is worth £400-420k! So, even with the rent increase I had this year, my current rental yield is only 3.3%! Still, he thinks that he is doing well! :huh:
