Question, What Is The Ratio Of Upsizers To Downsizers

Recommended Posts

I'm researching an article, anyone know of any stats on how many people in a gvien year are moving up the ladder and how many are moving down?

The reason I ask is I suspect the majority are moving up and the minority going down but need some data to prove it.

The majority will be staying put.

Do you mean intend on moving up/down or have moved up/down?

I think only the retired, divorced or widowed move down.

Doh no, I mean in a given year out of all the property sales/purchases which take place how many are by people are moving up the ladder and how many down.

i.e. how many people are putting cash into the property pyramid and how many are cashing out.

That's a good question.

I think most of the money that gets taken out is taken out by the lenders.

When you repay a mortgage you can easily pay double.

Anecdotally I only know one couple (approaching 60) who have moved down.

Only their sheer bloody ignorance prevents me from proclaiming them as fiscal geniuses. Sh1t.

Is it possible this ratio is kept well under wraps since it would only highlight how badly rampant HPI affects the majority of the home owning population (i.e. everyone moving up the ladder) thus destroying the belief that HPI is benefiting them?

It seems odd that this data isn't out there!
