Many STRs have failed to think through the full implications of their action to sell their property and rent. They got greedy and now they are paying the price and are having to stay in rented accommodation for much longer than they had expected.

If the STR do manage to get back onto the property ladder they will have used their STR money to buy the property which means that they will no longer be getting interest by keeping their STR money in the bank. It doesn't make sense to buy a property if house prices are languishing at the bottom and are not rising because the STR money will have been tied up to purchase a property but that money is not earning them interest anymore and the value of the property is static and not appreciating which means that the STR money is no longer contributing to the income of the STR.

We are not likely to experience another boom in house prices for at least another ten years then this surely means that it doesn't make sense to buy a property for at least ten years. If this is the case then what the hell are the STRs doing waiting for a property crash to occur because even if a property crash does happen house prices will not start to rise for at least ten years so there is no point buying soon after a crash has occurred if prices are not going to be rising for ten years.

A sensible investor will buy a property when property prices are about to rise, not when prices will languish at the bottom for ten years. The STR logic is seriously flawed and based on greed and stupidity. There is no point in buying a property until another house price boom starts and so the STR can now wait ten years before it becomes a good time to buy a property again.

The STR want to it both ways. When they own a property they want house prices to be high so that they can make money by selling their property for a high price and when they don't own a property they want house prices to be low so that they can buy a cheap property and make money when prices rise.

The STRs are finding to their cost that the property market is not so easy to predict since house prices have remained high long after they sold their property. What the STRs expected was that house prices would crash soon after they sold their property so that they can re-enter the property market soon after they sold their property and buy a property cheaply but much to their annoyance property prices have still yet to crash and the STR are finding themselves perplexed and dumbfounded and each day wondering why house prices are remaining so stubbornly high.

The STR just got greedy and are now paying the price for their rash and ill-judged action to sell their property without thinking it through properly and considering the consequencies of their actions. The STR are now finding themselves in a real dilemma of languishing in limbo in rented accomodation and every day regretting the worst decisions of their lives.

The STRs need to face up to reality and accept that even if a property crash were to happen this will not automatically make property prices cheap and affordable and for many property will still remain expensive and out of reach.

The people who are waiting for a property crash to occur in order that they can get a foot onto the property ladder will be cruelly disappointed in that property prices are unlikely to fall by a sufficient amount that will enable them to afford a property.

Many people waiting for a property crash are almost certainly waiting in vain and will find that a crash will not be the magic cure to rampant propery price inflation.

Property will remain expensive regardless of the kind of property price correction that will occur in a property crash. Too many people have got their hopes up in anticipation that property prices will fall to a reasonable level but their hopes are likely to be cruelly dashed.

Many STRs will just have to come to terms with the notion that they will never be able to afford a property in the UK and should adjust and plan for this new reality and should stop deluding themselves into thinking that a crash will somehow make property cheap because it won't.

High property prices are now a fact of life and rather than people complaining about it they should come to terms with this fact and accept it.

When house prices reach a high level owners of properties are naturally very reluctant to drop their asking prices from the market peak when the property market slows down. Property owners become resistant to dropping their asking prices even in the event of a recession. House prices, once they have risen, are "sticky downwards" and only owners who are forced to make a sale quickly will need to drop their asking price. The worst thing that can happen to the property market is a recession but even if such an event occurs vendors will hold out and continue to ask the highest price possible for their property because they know full well that in the long term house prices always go up.

Property prices are like a game of chicken between buyers and sellers as to who gives in first. The owner can always hold out for the price they want even if the property market slows down in the short-term because owners can always rely on the fact that people always need a place to live and in the end the owner will eventually find someone to buy the property at the price the owner wants if the owner is prepared to hold out long enough for the right buyer to come along.

Property owners have history and demographics on their side because history shows that property always goes up in value in the long-term and that an increasing population means that there will always be a strong demand for good property.

The STR speculators have made a serious miscalculation in selling their homes because they have assumed that a house price crash would have occurred soon after they sold their houses so that they can buy them back far more cheaply but the house price crash has yet to materialise and instead the houses that the STR people sold have significantly increased in value since they sold them.

The logic behind Sell-to-Rent was always flawed because the STR people will have required at least a 20% reduction in house prices in order to just break even and buy back their properties given the costs involved like stamp duty and transaction costs like solicitors fees. The STR speculators clearly have not thought through the implications of their actions and have gambled on a property crash occurring that shows no signs of happening.

The steep rises in house prices in recent years has made some home owners become greedy and sell their properties to crystalize their capital gains but although these STRs may have gained in the short-term in the long-term they will ultimately lose out because they are now paying dead money in rent whilst they wait for a crash that will never happen. It will always be a sellers market because sellers can ultimately hold out for the price they want, even in a slump. It will never be a buyers market.

It makes sense to pay the lowest possible price for anything, thats the bottom line. Silly person.

I have never heard such a load of tosh.

People like you are great for us bears as you clearly show the fragility of a bull argument. What you have written is grammatically terrible, you must have an IQ of 25.

Furthermore there is no economic reasoning and it is just a rant by someone who is clearly a simpleton. Have a look around these forums at some of the factual bear arguments, maybe not, it will most likely be way over your head.

Thanks for cheering us all up - nodumsunreader.

You are correct, it is Bill Gates. No £5 alas, just the satisfaction of being Troll Spotter #1 for today.
