This will help the House Prices in Liverpool

'Plague is back', expert claims

The bubonic plague, which killed millions of people in medieval England, is making a return in the world, an ecology expert in Liverpool claims. Research by Professor Michael Begon at the University of Liverpool revealed the deadly disease, also known as the Black Death, has re-emerged. It has only killed 200 people since 1998, but Prof Begon said the threat is "growing" in Africa and the US.

  • lvmreader: Yet again a post that has nothing to do with house prices. If world war three is declared or the we all die of bird flu then yes, house prices will fall. However these are all highly unlikely and very undesirable things in themselves. We shouldn’t let hope triumph over practical political solutions.

  • Don’t worry about the plague. Even dead people need somewhere to live

  • @Drewster,

    Don’t you think that plague or a infestation would not affect House Prices?

    Tenuous at best, lvmreader. Signal-to-Noise level is dropping, and this sort of fluff doesn’t help.

  • If any type of pandemic struck the UK and large numbers of death occured, then you would be able to buy a house very cheaply. A single gold coin may just be enough, it has been in the past.

  • Yes if millions of people died then the property market would be flooded and prices would come crashing back to earth. Let’s say two million people die – that’s one in thirty – would you really want one in thirty of your family and friends to die, just so that you can get a foot on the property ladder?

    Doesn’t make a difference whether it’s a plague, an act of terrorism, poisoned water supply, oil depot blockade, a very cold winter, a catastrophic power failure, russians cutting off our gas supply, etc. They’re all things we wouldn’t want to happen and they’re all relatively unlikely to happen.
