After The Crash

Recommended Posts

Guest

Presuming the crash that has now started is allowed to run its course - once we see decent falls (30% plus) what will the specific practical outcomes for the man on the street? I'm not talking WW3 scenarios, or the need to store beans!

For instance:

  • BTL landlords sell up - meaning more supply? Cheaper rents?
  • Foreign owners sell up, or never buy in the first place? Prime London starts to welcome back normal residents
  • Living costs come down drastically, so people have more to spend on other things
  • Business rents much lower, meaning increased margins, fewer failures, better job security
  • Grandparents and parents no longer have to give lump sums to their children to finance house purchases
  • People pay off mortgages quicker
  • Cheaper housing will allow councils to make more compulsory purchases for social housing

I didn't include lots of EAs out of work - nice but doesn't directly benefit people! Although ... might allow an online EA service to grow rapidly and change the EA system long term.

I imagine that investors would flee the pound sterling for the U.S dollar, as 60% of our economy is the housing economy (read it on another thread with verifiable data to back up).

This would force Mark "the vigilant" Carney to raise IR to avoid the mass dumping of the pound, further exacerbating the housing crash and giving savers great deals AND we could finally buy our own house.

existing mortgages will still have to repaid. So the poor buggars who bought during the last 18nonths or so are still going to have to repay their huge debts.

I've been off/on HPC since 2007 and I've always had an issue with the lack of empathy to people who bought out of necessity, me being one of them.

Of course I want a crash, but spare a thought for the innocent people who's lives will be ruined by huge negative equity! Some of the things I read on here are really quite vile.

^ Black Wednesday video

Amazing how they believed that just by setting an exchange rate that would result in a prosperous economy "like Germany's".

For sure their economic tomfoolery knows no bounds. It's no different now.

9.57 minutes in - Lamont takes the budget book out of the Red Box and the pages are literally full of holes :lol::lol:

Fewer landlords and the same number of people wanting to rent will mean higher rents?

Necessity? You simply had no other options available whatsoever other than purchase an overpriced property? Really? Nothing at all?

So now a house is not a necessity? Renting is not an option children at school are unable to rent as they could be evicted at any time.

Like I said the tone of this forum has turned very nasty.

And regarding BTL landlords selling up??? For every landlord selling a reduced property there will be 5 wanting to buy a reduced property, thus the game simply starts again....

Business rents never seem to go down, they prefer voids to lowering rents (I'm guessing there are tax reasons for this?)

I think its valuations on the balance sheet for major commercial landowners. If they let one shop at cheaper rent then the valuations on all the others fall too. Better to keep them empty or as charity shops than risk price discovery :( V cheap money helps here too of course...

Fewer Landlords, less homes to rent as some will have bought, leaving the less well off who cannot buy and who cannot afford large rents to compete for the rest. Potentially leading to lower rental prices as the more well off have bought ?

No sympathy I am afraid.....nobody forces people to buy something that is over valued.....nobody forces people to take on debt to buy something that may take extra years to repay.......be thankful that interest rates are so low.

The contract is to repay over ~25 years....a long-term commitment......what does it matter what it is worth whilst you are paying/ renting and repaying it...........nobody is entitled to free equity gain, in fact the more the value the more the next 'step on the ladder ' will cost........secured debt does not disappear it will always have to eventually be repaid....... ;)

It would be interesting to see London prices fall within a backdrop of 0.5% interest rates as yields would rocket >5%.

I can see many piling in once prices have become more realistic, just like they did in Dublin in 2012.

So a fall, followed by a sudden sharp bounce as investors clamber to buy a high yielding asset.

That will happen regardless of a crash, so what are you complaing aboiut?

Stamp duty and the big clause 24 squeeze suggest not...

The big BTL game is ending soon.

Glorious stuff. Thanks for posting. Too bad the events of 2007/8 weren't documented in the same way.

surely less supply, rents go up on remaining property.

Sorry I meant increased supply for houses for sale ... will rents go up, or will there be fewer people renting, so landlords drop rent to get tenants?

Of course tulip bulbs won't come down in price ... look how much we're all paying THIS week! If a crash was coming why would we still be buying? You must think we're stupid!

Well .... actually ....

Keep the faith tyres :)

This is exactly the attitude which gets you zero sympathy. I know a number of people whom have to do exactly this. Rent with kids. My younger brother and the majority of his friends. You did have a choice and you chose to buy at the price you did, rather than rent. At least be man enough to accept the negative consequences of this decision, should they come about.

I speak only for myself, and my opinions are my own. Nevertheless, vile comments I reserve for the Governor of the Bank of England, Geroge Osborne and the BTL brigade

When you move into a house, you have to consider whether you'll be there for a year, or five, or twenty five. Negative equity is only a problem for people who want to move ... they should have considered that when they disregarded the option of renting.

I'm not complaining I am saying you should spare a thought for people who will still have to repay the over inflated prices paid.

HPC is not going to be a utopia. Fact is the majority of the population HAVE bought and although I accept they have added to the problem, HPC is going to be pretty awful for the average family.

I think there are too many butter renters on this forum who 8 years on from when I first started reading this have grown even more self centred!

I started reading this forum back in 07 before I bought my second house and I'm still waiting for a crash.

I would be interested to know if there is some sort of date in mind when if HPC hasn't occurred we give up?

Personally I see no end to the BTL game, it just means wealthy people will buy more cheaper houses and as for ir raises, forget it.

I think if we ain't seen HPC by summer 17 you can forget it
