House Price Crash Forum

Its out now! Up front in the opening segment an interview with what seemed to be a "realist bear" type. He said mortgage restes were going to cause a great deal of misery and said going IO will just end in tears later on. Its panic time for millions. The background sign "Mortgage Misery" was great overt stuff for the millions glued to their sets trying to swallow their chips.

Crash fever has begun.

Interesting though - and slightly irritating - is that at no time do reporters say that the problem isn't with IRs, it's with property prices. 5.75% is still a very modest rate.

Similarly, when anyone says "Ah, but the crash won't happen cos IRs were much higher the last time..." slap them and tell them HOW MUCH MORE PEOPLE ARE BORROWING NOW and that small rises mean a lot more cash. Then walk away when they say "Yeah, but it's different this time. Supply is lower." <_<

I have noticed that elections are lost or won on how much dosh the wo/man in the street has in his/her pocket to spend on 'fun'. ..new clothes, ciggies, booze, nights out. A party can be as noble and well meaning as you like. If they don't release some cash for the punters, they are dead meat.

This is where the crunch will be here. People aren't going to want to pay above the odds on a house.. like forever!! :o - and forego their pleasures, when the simple solution - for almost everyone - save BTLs - is to...DROP...THE...PRICES!!!! :P

Vox popularis...can't say it often enough. :ph34r:

Today has been good training for that. A nice, steady workout.

I aim to be the "Charles Atlas" of gloaters by the end of 2012.

(That's if I'm not lynched first!)

I'd be finding it difficult not to gloat if I'd been telling anyone who cared to listen that that the market was about to crash and then put my money where my mouth was by STRing.

Hang on...... :P

IR are at their highest level in history. You have to factor in the "cost" of the mortgage which is so much higher than just before Great Crash 1 laid waste to the excesses of the late 1980's. With multiples far exceeding those that brough property down in the late 80's and early 90's it is easy to see how just a few mini-hikes can trigger a major attemtpoed sell-off. I say "attempted" because for many, they won't make it before reposession comes knocking.

timed to perfection, ya lucky bu55er ;) (at least that's what the average person will say to you, but we all know different)

My wife will be able to take me out on visits again (in public I hasten to add), no longer seen as that mad bloke who tells random strangers in queues house prices are actually going to fall. :D

h'mmm, very close I would say.

imo 6% now (well by xmas anyway ;) ) is equivalent to 13% of the 90's ??

remember that huge debt burden the average person is carrying bdon. The hpc'ers on this site are not indicative of Mr & Mrs Average, this is what people on here sometimes forget.

I know people that shop at Netto with credit cards, do you ? :ph34r:

I was going to watch Question Time to see if anyone tables any daring questions about housing and the state of the economy (it seems ages since the economy was discussed on TV and by politicians). Unfortuneatly tonights show is a "schools special."

"This Week" might be interesting as Andew Neild was on fine form earlier today.

I just posted a reply in another thread with a comment "IMO, 6.5% is the new 15%". I think we`re on the same wavelength.

Evan was on Radio 4/Radio 5 live saying people cant really complain because i/r of 4 to 5% were historicaly low and interest rates of 5 to 6%+ arn't high. He hinted at more rises to come and maybe that individuals and companies may have borrowed to much in the belief that interest rates would stay very low.

On the News tonight they were discussing how the MPC are worried about inflation getting out of control, while they were discussing with great difficulty what decision to make, a voice came from behind those double doors shouting "remember Anthony Barber " and that`s how you got that 0.25% hike. :P

Beeb are bearish at the mo, but I was listening to radio 5 live at about 7pm and the financial reporter dared to suggest that 5.75% might be the peak in this cycle and that people might consider switching to tracker mortgages :o *
