  • Property Prices

    Have we been keeping House prices UP 2007

    A lack of landlord investment in the property market is driving down property prices and making it easier for first time buyers too get on the ladder... is this not what the government wanted?

    Yes. That is what the government wants.

    As long as you are prepared to hold the property for 10 to 15 years minimum, HTB brings you huge liabilities. An over priced house, with likely negative equity In the short to medium term due to lack of resale value. And the government loan has to be repaid in 5 years, it is great only if there is significant capital appreciation. If not, how are these first time buyers going to come up with 40% pay back loan to the government in 5 years. The alternative if pay monthly interest to mortgage lender and government loan. Great liability to take on.

    You people baffle me, prices gone up massively before btl, the velocity of money and the need for constant devaluation is what drives tangible assets up but you lot have become such a sad echo chamber you really think you make a big difference. No wonder the government targeting us, grow up, supply demand and credit, currently clearly stamp duty and brexit has clogged the whole market up so you London people who can't see beyond the end of the road are effected the most good. Maybe you'll recognise the rest of the country for once, quite a shallow reflection of itself this site had become  full of self pity. Might be able to find a few distressed sellers lol
