Houses only ever go up in value..don't they?

Firstrung: Can UK house prices really jump another 50% by 2011?

Who will be buying all these houses? If people can't afford mortgage repayments, they won't be able to afford rents to cover them either. So unless buy-to-let investors remain uncommonly stupid (not to mention solvent) and keep subsidising their tenants' rents for the next six years, we just don't see how affordability could ever fall that far without a crash in the market.
