buywell3: A general view on the state of the overblown property market that has been caused by a variety of government interventions and property stimulus packages Packages that now will not be able to be continued in the face of Covid-19 continuance and the UK Depression deepens ======= UK Property Market to drop 30% over the next 2 years ======= buywell predicts that by the end of 2022 the average price of a house will be back around 160K down from circa 240k now Round number a drop of 30% This is a conservative number in buywells' view based upon the drop in UK GDP of over 20% Check out HP previous drops V previous GDP drops in times of recession and you will see what buywell means. The two always go hand in hand one following the other Check out also the number of high value properties that have recently hit the market in your area buywell would suggest --- folks are trying to cash out to avoid the loss to come
energeticbacker: Is this a good time to buy back into 'builders for their dividend potential? To find out more, we've taken a fresh look at the five largest listed housebuilders - Persimmon (LON: PSN), Berkeley Group (LON: BKG), Barratt Developments (LON: BDEV), Taylor Wimpey (LON: TW) and Bellway (LON: BWY).

arja: you must be some sort of imbecile to think I am shorting based on what I said . But I notice you have a very low IQ and are uneducated by the "looser" comment. It is spelt LOSER ! Incidentally , I have no position in BDEV and have not traded it in last 3 months !!
eggbaconandbubble: Do you really believe that the freehold management companies bought the leases in good faith? No way! Compensation? Good idea! As you say - all colluding parties, solicitors, builders et al. Remember that pretty much all those involved will have a beneficial share or agreement with the current freeholders. Read off shore shareholding, parent companies. etc.etc. The whole thing stinks but is typical of much business practice both in the private and public sector.
scepticalinvestor: RNS Number : 0099YCompetition and Markets Authority04 September 2020 Leasehold homes: CMA launches enforcement actionThe CMA is launching enforcement action involving 4 leading housing developers it believes may have broken consumer protection law in relation to leasehold homes.As part of its ongoing investigation, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is today opening enforcement cases focusing on certain practices of:·    Barratt Developments·    Countryside Properties·    Persimmon Homes·    Taylor WimpeyThe move comes after the CMA uncovered troubling evidence of potentially unfair terms concerning ground rents in leasehold contracts and potential mis-selling. It is concerned that leasehold homeowners may have been unfairly treated and that buyers may have been misled by developers.The CMA's action relates to the following areas of concern:·    Mis-selling-      Ground rents: developers failing to explain clearly exactly what ground rent is, whether it increases over time, when increases will occur and by how much.-      Availability of freehold: people being misled about the availability of freehold properties. For example, the CMA found evidence that some people were told properties on an estate would only be sold as leasehold homes, when they were in fact later sold as freeholds to other buyers.-      Cost of the freehold: people being misled about the cost of converting their leasehold to freehold ownership. When buying their home, the CMA found evidence that some people were told the freehold would cost only a small sum, but later down the line the price had increased by thousands of pounds with little to no warning.-      Unfair sales tactics: developers using unfair sales tactics - such as unnecessarily short deadlines to complete purchases - to secure a deal, meaning people could feel pressured and rushed into buying properties that they may not have purchased had they been given more time.·    Unfair contract terms - ground rents-      The use of unfair contract terms that mean homeowners have to pay escalating ground rents, which in some cases can double every 10 years. This increase is built into contracts, meaning people can also struggle to sell their homes and find themselves trapped.Alongside these issues, the CMA will also be looking further into ground rent increases based on the Retail Price Index (RPI) and may take enforcement action should it find evidence of unfair practices in relation to these. In particular, the CMA is concerned about the fairness of escalating ground rent terms linked to RPI and that these are not always effectively explained by developers when discussing RPI-based ground rent with prospective homeowners.The CMA will also be investigating certain firms who bought freeholds from these developers and have continued to use the same unfair leasehold contract terms.The CMA has now written to Barratt, Countryside, Persimmon, and Taylor Wimpey outlining its concerns and requiring information.How the case proceeds will depend on the CMA's assessment of the evidence. Possible outcomes include legal commitments from the companies to change the way they do business, or if necessary, the CMA could take firms to court.
sikhthetech: confirms what I said in #2266.. Demand increased due to Stamp Duty holiday and Help to Buy, both of which end within the next few months. "The increased activity levels are being stimulated by a combination of pent-up demand, the Stamp Duty holiday and an understanding that Help to Buy will only be available to first time buyers and regional home price caps will exist from April 2021."
sikhthetech: They state completions are significantly down for this year. Next year, they seem to be relying on Help to Buy to be extended - it ends in March 2021. There's still a lot of uncertainty over the next few months. "The unprecedented impact of COVID-19 has significantly reduced our completion volumes this year " "Key to the health of the new homes market is mortgage availability. Whilst there is a reduced level of availability of higher loan to value mortgages, demand from first time buyers looking to use Help to Buy has been significant since the market reopened." "To help ensure the UK's housing recovery is sustained, capacity in the industry is maintained and to ensure that customers who planned to use the current Help to Buy scheme still can, given the unprecedented backdrop, we believe it would be sensible for Government to extend the existing scheme beyond March 2021."
sikhthetech: thebull, "at any point in human history, when house prices have consistently gone down." Early 70's, late 80s/90s... Sound familiar?? "The secondary banks, like the larger institutions, had been lending heavily based on the previously rising housing prices of the late 1960s and early 1970s, borrowing excessively in relation to the collateral assets. A sudden downturn in house prices and increases in interest rates well before the November 1973 oil crisis left the smaller institutions holding many loans secured by property with lower value than the loans." "The downturn was exacerbated by the global 1973–74 stock market crash, which hit the UK while it was already in the midst of the housing price crash."
kenmitch: Buybacks don't mean a floor for the share price. If they did it would be a guaranteed way to invest successfully. There are many examples of Companies buying back their shares and seeing subsequent and sometimes immediate share price falls. For two current examples look no further than Standard Life Aberdeen SLA and NUMIS NUM. Standard Life started their buybacks with share well over £4 and despite buying back almost daily the share dropped fast to £2.40. Also buybacks won't save the share price from falls if there's a profits warning/downbeat trading update. e.g BP share crashed on Gulf of Mexico news despite then recent £20 billion buyback and yesterday NUMIS fell 30p on downbeat AGM trading update. There are pros and cons for buybacks but a floor on the share price is NOT a given!
barnesian: "Whilst the payment of special dividends represents the Board's preferred method of returning excess capital to shareholders, this recognises that at certain share price points, share buybacks will be in the best interest of shareholders." That suggest to me that they will support the share price by share buybacks if it falls to a certain point rather than pay special dividends. I'm guessing that that is also in the interests of directors' share price related bonuses (if they exist - I haven't checked). So a good investor strategy is to look out for share buybacks and recognise that that is probably a floor of the share price.
