House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

£100 million

3000 small builders

But just 50 investments for 2000 new homes

It's a subsidy of £2 million per 'small builder' or £50k per house built.

Can I have £50k off the price of my self-build house please (if I could find some land)

@BrandonLewis I am being asked to pay tax so you can give the money to builders so they can charge me a fortune to live in a shoe box ?

"

Conservatives given millions by property developers"

At some point someone really needs to go to fail for the rest of their lives ( IMHO ).

Lord that list is horrendous.

Quite sad really knowing what would have happened - and should have happened - if they had just left it be like Spain, US or Ireland.

Dont forget MASS IMMIGRATION !!!!

and also not to forget just keeping the numbers of new houses being built very low - as well as demolishing quite a few.

Then there's the rich overseas buyers freedom to set UK house prices along with overseas marketing.

In other words everything that can be done to aggravate the house price/housing problem is being done along with think tanks spending every waking hour to dream up even more schemes.

Small builders are not the same as property developers or (large) property companies.

Small builders (less than 100 employees) get screwed over all the time by the above.

To be honest, the building trade is like the Wild West - cowboys above, cowboys below.

If they can't make money in a ZIRP environment with high house prices, they never will.

So true. 6 years of ZIRP and house builders are struggling?! Why don't they sell their houses cheaper....just a thought...

What a facile argument. The 12,000 to 3,000 reduction could, in theory be entirely as a result of consolidation, mergers and efficiency. It isn't entirely of course, but it is a factor.

Don't forget unprecedented levels of forbearance from lenders

Don't forget unprecedented levels of forbearance from lenders

Among the mess forbearance isn't something I have a particular problem with - it should be a matter for creditors to weigh up in assessing the likelihood and extent of returns. If people don't like forbearance they need to let go of concepts like deposit insurance, guarantees and rent-seeking. I'm not sure I'd lose that much sleep if (hypothetical) electromagnetic pulse bombs disabling all electronic infrastructure and records were simultaneously detonated over every significant financial and political centre on the planet.

Ffs. Sure subsidising demand through htb is outrageous.

Subsidising supply, when there is a supply crisis, seems to be on hpc's side.

Some of you lot just oppose everything

Reminds of my baldrick denying his own name. You object to every government initiative whether good or bad.
