"Tracker mortgages, however, are on the rise with 21% of all new loans being trackers"

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. People really are stupid aren't they. At most their mortgages will decrease by 0.5%, however, the potential increase is unlimited.


This means that even if house prices fall in the post election public sector cuts and tax rises, there ain't no way I'm buying a house until interest rates rise and this 21% of complete idiots are shaken out (/down). This is where the real falls will come from.
