A lack-lustre recovery, or it is a decline in house prices?

Last month the Nationwide reported that the UK property prices went down 0.6% – year on year the house price index was down 0.6% to where they were in 2010. I remember a year ago commenting that house appreciation was up by 5%/6% but it seemed like there is too much headwind. I predicted the prices will be in retreat by 5%: it is good to be on the mark.

Basically house prices are extended to their maximum. Almost everywhere the prices are 5-10 times salary incomes, plus the lenders do not want to grant you a mortgage. On the other side, interest rates are low, in fact, very low so that is supporting house prices. So I predict no change for the years to come.

In the end the salary increases of the 92% of people WITH jobs will trigger house price increases. One minute is zero price appreciation, next minute it will be 10-15% increases because that is the way of the ‘herd mentality’. If you sell for 20-25% below market value and then in a few years time discover that your neighbour has sold his property for 10% above asking price then you might be (you must be!) kicking your self for not accepting our quick move now agreement.
