First Time Buyer Weekly News Round Up

Recommended Posts

The article neatly encapsulates all the reasons why current property prices are unsustainable.

FTBs can't afford to buy without their parents withdrawing equity from their own homes, First Time Sellers are unable to move up the ladder because the gaps between the rungs are too large. Ultimately those at the top of the ladder, who wish to down-size, will be unable to sell because nobody will be able to afford their houses.

The only thing left holding up this fragile bubble is BTL, but how long will this carry on with negative yields and without any prospect of capital appreciation?

the more btls the better. commoditise the market hehe. compete on prices, undifferentiated market, where its impossible to differentiate = depreciating profits i.e. cheaper and cheaper rents, lots going bankrupt.

Last year? More like last century.

Yet sadly lambs continue to the BTL slaughter; many people, who should know better, continue to buy into the biggest bubble in history.
