Got to agree with taffee, house prices rise people feel better off, borrow more money spend it mainly on imported goods unsustainable unless we have a bad run of inflation which i do not think anybody wants. Dogwalker the balance of payments is starting to detereat again, mainly because in my opinion we are pricing ourselves out.rwlly
Good point rwlly, if the double-edged sword is also a chicken & egg situation: house prices leading the growth of salaries rather than the other way round ! I just mentioned 'manfacturing' as being a.n. other category of economic activity. Other categories are probably more promising for us to avoid the problem you highlight e.g. financial services, media, tech . These are more likely to succeed in the 'powerhouse of the North' ...& support house prices there?dogwalker
You can't base an economy on ever rising house prices as they don't produce anything....that's basic economics...to keep the ponzi scheme you suck money from reaching the real economy and historically all bubbles burst regardless which is,why it makes no sense to create one Unless you have no idea what else to do(clue)taffee
True Dogwalker, but that is a double edged sword, because the higher higher house prices need to be supported by higher wages witch in turn makes our manufacturing less competitiverwlly
Our economy - its improvement that is - depends on a confident house market. Once that changes , & 'manufacturing' say, takes over as a strong enough substitute to help underpin our 2.5.% annual growth rate, then our government can afford to take away the various props to housing. Meanwhile, if houses in particular regions, with or without props, become over-priced then they won't sell without a price correction.dogwalker
I cannot understand a government that is supposed to believe in the free market,interfering with taxpayers money to prop up an already overpriced asset. if they had two brains to rub together they should have allowed property prices to correct themselves when they were doing. It would have made the deficit reduction far easier ie, reducing housing benefit instead of keeping on stoking the already out of control fire.rwlly
What does it matter, taffers? Things go up & down... You heard it here first.dogwalker
Help to buy London.....40% interest free loan if you have 5% deposit For new home Total total madness...barely hit the headlines says it all....hmg is Effectively giving people almost half the cost of buying a hugely overpriced property at the height of biggest bubble since tokyo/japan This will implode imo words cannot describe this madness and its happening right in front of our eyes...when it bursts will they say I didn't see it coming a second time?taffee
Nationwide boss says London market unsustainable and could slam into reverse http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-3327437/Nationwide-s-boss-Graham-Beale-warns-house-prices-London-slam-reverse-describing-market-unsustainable.htmltaffee
shamus 21, Yes,--real demand depends upon affordability. Affordability could possibly be achieved by part factory building houses. This has been done successfully elsewhere.I know not whether any of the large builders have considered the possibility. House prices are now dangerously high. They will not rise forever. Builders need to make big efficiencies from here.roddiemac2
Those brokers - Liberum/Caz's - got their story a bit right with regard to Bovis today, if with no other housebuilders. So, they score a quarter of a Brownie point for last month's write-up, imo. The knock to values does though raise the M&A prospects now. Do we need as many quoted house-builders doing the same thing with the same-ish results? But with different financial profiles which could be usefully amalgamated.dogwalker
This is why builders have got to be able to build houses for far lower prices, and still be able to make a profit,ready for when sanity returns to the value of property.rwlly
You can have the highest demand ever for people wanting to buy a house but if they have not got the money or are unable to borrow it you will not be able to sell them a house in which case there is no point in the house builder building any more houses they will not be able to sell regardless of how relaxed the planning system becomes or what ever gas bagging BS the politicians come out with.shamus21
rwlly, Spot on re wages and the cost of a house. Once upon a time, in a saner world, it would have been nigh on impossible to obtain a mortgage of more than 3/4 times your annual salary or wage. Just because interest rates are at historical lows , making it easier to service debt , does not make it wise to borrow huge sums of money that you are unlikely ever to be able to repay: nuts.roddiemac2

No bounce back for builders this time...back in 2007 banks started to Drop yet results were good...banks are weak too...wonder if something is happening in the debt market we don't know about?..I'm bearish but surprised no rally...even relief rallytaffee
gbh2 with wages where they are we cannot compete with the rest of the world, so from where i am standing it is costs that are too high especially putting a roof over your head.rwlly
Gbh2...the reason rates are near zero was to save the uk financial system from collapse...since then a huge asset bubble has offered and our banks have lent into it!...what could go wrongtaffee
gbh2 Inflation of 25 PERSENT bought houses for people in the seventies, although difficult rates were way bellow inflation, today rates are above inflation making the dept harder to clear.rwlly
We could afford houses when the interest was 15% so few will struggle with incremental rate rise up to 5% - imo it's simple Institutional greed that's keeping the sector prices subdued atmgbh2
What rate rise , late 2016 early 2017. Looks that's when it may happen , nothing is bursting yetcasino444
The truth is most would be first time buyers cannot afford todays prices.rwlly
The market waking up to the fact we are in a property bubble...bubbles always burst...with the threat of rate rises and other headwinds the market is adjusting its risk exposure..if things were genuinely so good...why do we have all the props?taffee
I wonder what the recently recruited graduates' degrees are in for them to be the best for the skilled labour shortages, such as bricklayers.'Engineering' or 'visual arts', maybe?dogwalker
