It’s a superbubble

The housing bubble continues to swell

But if there is a shortage of supply, why are rents ... falling?

  • It’s a shortage of properties to buy since there are almost no right-to-buy’s left and buy-to-let have ‘snapped up’ the remaining. What you are witnessing is the well to do 20’s to 30’s outbidding each over on the remaining stock.
    Clearly the way forward is a 30% rent tax to be levied on gross rent + 500% capital gains tax on residential property within the M25. You would soon see the shortage of properties for sale dispensary.

    It was only a few short years ago there was an abundance of property for sale that nobody wanted. That property still exists and the population has only increased by a fraction.

    Rents are low due to an oversupply of rental property from those chasing yield.
