I may have similar views to you if I'd not had any CG in the last 13 years. But CG has allowed a lot of investors in the SE to expand.
As JC has stated, 2% CG is in effect 8% because I've had to put 25% deposit (+ horendous stamp etc of course).
Done properly the returns are still there, as a beginner though there's plenty of pitfalls.
It's definitely a buyers market at the moment!
The ball is now rolling
when s24 and stamp duty were announced we lived in a different uk
we could be in for one hell of a fall in SE values and then stagnation for years
this is going to be a very different crash and the worry has to be how do we get out of the mess we are in
The SE and north have been vastly different for many decades now. The cache that London has around the world cannot be undone in a few years. Everyone I've ever spoken too about London from other countries still thinks it is a magical place.
There's many people from other countries around the world that would still gladly swap the mostly self-induced (by Govts) turmoil we have in the UK. Chat with them DL and see what feedback you get?
``JC sees growth of around a few percent a year if you take into consideration inflation it’s an asset standing still with the work and stress of running it``
I like inflation it erodes my mortgages
100K mortgage in 1999 is only about 60K today thanks to inflation
If my assets stood still I would of course get rid -
but unsurprisingly they dont stand still - they grow
Rental income buys the food for my table and it heats my house
Leverage and compound interest magnify capital growth profits
Stress is subjective . Some people are just stressy and highly strung
Delegate if you get stressed out by it all I advise . Property investment is not for everyone
Personally I think working 9 - 5 for an employer for 45 years is far more stressful
No one can say to me now - I want that report on my desk tomorrow.
I dont have to scrape the ice of my windscreen at 7am .
My neighbours do ( well some of them do ).
Freedom is pretty stress free I find
Aim for a clear horizon

Capital growth in property depends upon many factors. Wage growth, inflation expectation and house price to earnings ratio, interest rates to name a few. Bottom line is prices will remain flat for the next two decades.
What factors have there been to generate capital growth to date and what is there likely to be in the future -
Falling interest rates improving affordability or increasing interest rates and reduced affordability
Increasing investment in BTL or flat market or landlords selling
Favourable tax treatment or more S24 type legislation
Affordable house prices or house prices at high income multiples
More QE or reversal of QE
More HTB or end of HTB
More immigration or emigration
In EU or Brexit
Favourable lending criteria or PRA restrictions on lending criteria
I think we have had the best over the last 10 - 20 years
In my opinion, it's politics and demographics that primarily influence house prices, not economics.
Political decisions drive the market up; less regulation, easier credit etc. Political decisions drive the market down; PRA, S24 etc. Baby boomers have been voting for higher house prices for the last 25 years because it was in their self-interest. It's basically a wealth transfer to them from younger people.
The politics has already turned and is only going to get a lot worse for landlords from here on. As boomers die off and millennials and gen z become a larger voting block, landlords are going to get eviscerated. Young people hate landlords and don't own property, so expect a lot of pain and lower house prices in the future. And the demographics don't look good with Brexit either.
