I Just Don't Get It

Recommended Posts

In recent months (9 mths or more) I've pretty much come to the conclusion that the market wasn't going to pan out the way I was convinced it would back in '04. Now I can take being wrong and willing (reluctantly) to swallow a plateau or Japan style 15 year steady depreciation.

But now the latest market reports are out and all pointing north:

Hometrack 0.1%

Nationwide 1.4%

Rightmove 2.7%

Or newspaper articles contain gems like this:

In all, I have invested £2million in the South-East at what I hope will prove to have been the bottom of the market. [04-05] If I am right, and there is another rate cut before the end of the year, the next wave of house-price inflation is already beginning to swell.

Lenders inflate the buy-to-let balloon

Not since I heard comments such as: "With the 3G Auctions underway, now is a great time to invest in Telcom/dot.com sectors" have I been as confused as I am now.............but all the time my rent is cheaper than a comparable purchase I'll stay where I am.
