Tracker Mortgage Rates Start to Rise as Demand Falls / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

The Bank of England base rate has now been on hold at 0.50% for seven years, so it would be fair to assume that variable rate tracker mortgages have also remained static. However, research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that this is not the case, with the average two-year tracker mortgage rate increasing by 0.06% since November 2015.

Game the Housing Market With a High-value Property / Housing-Market / Home Improvements

By: Submissions

Endri Hasanaj writes: The housing market is unpredictable at the best of times, but there’s always one sure-fire way to create the perfect house – make improvements that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

This isn’t as easy as it sounds. Depending on the area you live in, the value of your home will hit a glass ceiling no matter how many improvements you make to it. But if you can find a happy median between potential value increases and the projected cost of additions, you’ll break a profit.

U.S. Real Estate & Fed, Systemic Risk is Rising Quickly / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The Federal Debt:

The current amount The U.S. Government owes is over $19 trillion and therefore it is mathematically impossible to pay back. They will never be able to pay this back.  Central bankers are in uncharted waters. They do not know how to create economic growth and fight deflation in some areas of the market.  They do not know how to even return to a time of “normal” monetary policy.   Their pretense of knowledge, of being able to effectively control currencies used by billions of people, is coming to an end.

Negative Interest Rates Could Trigger Another Housing Market Bubble / Housing-Market / Global Housing Markets

By: Sol_Palha

"From top to bottom of the ladder, greed is aroused without knowing where to find ultimate foothold. Nothing can calm it, since its goal is far beyond all it can attain. Reality seems valueless by comparison with the dreams of fevered imaginations; reality is therefore abandoned." ~ Emile Durkheim

Sweden is already in the mature stages of experiencing a housing crisis. Take a look at the chart below. Home prices are surging simply because it is cheap to borrow money. The lower the interest payments, the more you can borrow. Hence, individuals throw caution to the wind and start chasing property because they believe prices will continue trending upwards. What they forget is that no market can trend upward forever.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The latest bad news to hit the UK buy to let rental property investment sector was the announcement from the Bank of England to make conditions on buy to let mortgages much more stringent by going beyond the current norm of just mortgage interest being covered by the anticipated market rents, instead it has been proposed that at a minimum rent should be at 125% of mortgage interest payments, as well as taking into account all other costs incurred such as repairs, tax and voids, as part of a continuing trend to to make more properties available to first time buyers, that property investors have been busy buying up for well over a decade that has resulted in making it near impossible for first time buyers to step onto the bottom rung of the property ladder in many areas of the UK.
