Dangerous mortgages are a sign the market has peaked

Supersize your mortgage!

Morgan Stanley offers mortgages up to 7 times single salary on the basis that when the house is sold, they get a slice of the profit! The mortgage is a fixed 2-year at 5.69% but this will become a tracker at 2.5% above the London Interbank Offered Rate, (UK LIBOR). I like the quote at the end "“It could exacerbate the first-time buyer problem. It will support that end of the market in an artificial manner, because Advantage will make a play on affordability ... " All this has echos of the deal at the Bramley Stoke developed in the early 1990s - which became know as the Soney Broke development by the Media.

  • Doesn’t quite match the 32x salary the Bliars have taken on. No wonder he’s a lap dog for the Americans … that’s the only place left in the world he has a chance of making his
    mortgage patments from US backhanders …. sorry, I mean after-dinner speaking tours. The rest of the world thinks he’s a war criminal.

  • Rachel, the fact that “prices there have now rocketed” is the whole point. Yes, prices have rocketed into the stratosphere, from where they are destined to return to earth leaving new FTBer in Bradley Stoke sadly broke, again. And so it goes on…

    In my view, this site’s reson detre is that there is a community of bloggers who are peed-off about the politicians/ecconomists who allow this to happen.

  • japanese uncle says:

    Had it peaked a couple of years earlier, the damage to this economy could have been much more limited than the one we all would inevitably have to witness in the very near future. Cunning and wicked have already gone, and only fools are dancing on the floor that can collapose at any moment. Pity.
