Inverse Property Funds and other options


Recommended Posts

As HPC looms, are there any tools/inverse/shorting-funds which can track Residential house prices or Commerical properties?

I've checked in many Broker providers, they all have plenty of funds/trackers for "Propery funds, real estate funds" , but all rises with rise in propery values.

I'm looking for funds, which will increase with fall in house/property prices as I expect a quite down-turn in next 1-3 years.

You would need options in some kind of properties futures market.

Going long or short anything is a fool's errand at this point. We have no idea which assets the governbank will choose to be winners.

fair enough..

But if you see there are short funds in most of indexes (S&P, dow jones, ftse); commodities (like oil,gold) but couldn't find such a product for properties. hence was checking

The trouble is, if the government dumps a load of bailout cash on a failing business which should by all reasonable standards go under, you can get a margin call on your shorts

Tend to agree, though I always think they will try to bailout companies to keep things moving which ultimately will help and reinflate stockmarkets. 
 

Not so sure about property bring reinflated though. There will be a permanent shift to homeworking which will damage commercial property and ultimately property is just an asset, the Government would rather keep the banks afloat than directly support property at large. Also the aggregate property value is so high that they can’t afford it.
