Reminder of what was clear as day in Feb 2007

Prepare for the failure of HBOS & similar

It is interesting to re-read back what we thought in February. Interest rates will now have to go up since we just "printed" another half a trillion of currency worldwide.

    How stupid does all of that stuff look now. 125% loans – houses only go up in value don’t they?

    40 year mortgages – it’s a new paradigm.

    Shared equity – buy with a stranger – let someone else default on your mortgage.

    10x mortgages – it is for a high earner – let’s hope he’s not relying on this year’s bonus.

    Self cert – why do you need it if you can AFFORD your mortgage.

    Let’s get back to 3x the average salary buys an average house. With the state of the market at the moment that will be a new paradigm.
