Mortgage Lending Graphs


Recommended Posts

The rest of the album was ok, but this was perhaps my favourite on the album:

The Fear

This is our "Music from A Bachelors Den" -

the sound of loneliness turned up to ten.

A horror soundtrack from a stagnant water-bed

And it sounds just like this.

This is the sound of someone losing the plot -

making out that they're okay when they're not.

You're gonna like it,

but not a lot

and the chorus goes like this:

Oh baby,

here comes the fear again.

The end is near again.

A monkey's built a house on your back.

You can't get anyone to come in the sack

and here comes another panic attack

Oh here we go again.

So now you know the words to our song,

pretty soon you'll all be singing along.

When you're sad, when you're lonely

and it all turns out wrong.

When you've got the fear.

And hen you're no longer searching

for beauty or love -

just some kind of life

with the edges taken off.

When you can't even define what it is that you're frightened of

this song will be here.

Oh baby,

here comes the fear gain.

The end is near again.

If you ever get that chimp off your back.

If you ever find the thing that you lack

but you know you're only having a laugh

and here we go again.

Until the end.

Kind of seems relevant somehow...

What is better.

A roof over your head

or Common sense?.

So a roof over your head is better than common sense?

Maybe we should stop trying to educate our young and just put them into

140k luxury flats and we will have solved all the nations problems?

Oh I forgot put them into the flats at interest only mortgages of course

because we know that prices are always going to rise don't we?

You cannot go wrong with property can you?

If you can keep your head while all those around you are losing theirs then you obviously don't understand the seriousness of the problem!!!!!!!!

You keep your head because you will have already worked out how serious the problem is!

That is why the majority of the contributors and viewers here realise the housing market is completely and utterly screwed and will keep their heads as they can sit back and have a beer while all the dinner party btl brigade get wekk and truly shafted!!!

Another non-sequitur. Keep 'em coming. (See other Laurejon contributions).

Non-sequitur: A statement that does not follow logically from what preceded it

VP

Yes I know it is futile trying to have a rational debate with someone

such as laurejon but you cannot help yourself sometimes.

So as bulls are constantlly making outrageous claims I will stick by

my prediction of 40% fall in house prices by March 2006!

Now that is one hell of a prediction.

Tell me oh wise one, where will interest rates be in March 2006?.

5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16% or maybe more?.

With all the speculation and wailing and knashing of teeth that goes on over a

possible 1/4 % increase then it doesn't take a genius to work out that it may take

only a further 1% increase from now to completely screw the housing market for

years to come.

I say it doesn't take a genius to work out the above but I forgot I was responding

to Laurejon.

Shouldn't that graph show mortgages down to about 63000? if it was up to date, its about 20 000 too high

According to a graph I have ( downloaded from this site ) showing Bank of England data for mortgage approvals from 1986, 63000 is actually considerably lower than the lowest months figures during the last property crash, the lowest recorded then was approx 68000. the graph also showed how house prices tracked loan numbers albeit with a bit of a time lag, so here we go .....
