US and UK Soaring House Prices Bull Market Momentum - Video

Housing-Market / UK Housing Aug 27, 2013 - 05:32 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Housing-Market

Despite academic and mainstream press skepticism, US and UK house prices are literally starting to soar in response to government measures aimed at boosting housing market sentiment into sustainable bull market trajectories, that I expect could continue for the remainder of this decade.

housing bubble

Just because something continues to rise doesn't mean its not a bubble and will eventually crash...

...also I think you far underestimate the significant of rising rates - forget the effect on housing - what about on government spending...

And you honestly think housing is going up 10% per year, with wages flat?? So as wealthy boomers retire, youngsters on zero hours contracts will be buying up houses at what insane multiple of their income?? (oh but, I forgot, sentiment is good, therefore housing goes higher??!?! Pull the other one)

Sentiment

Sentiment drives fundementals, all the way towards the euphoric bubble phase, when the mainstream press will be full of goldilocks commentary.

Don't Really Agree

I don't really agree. (I realize this is a somewhat mainstream view but) The last bubble never burst. UK house prices remain historically overpriced relative to other assets, wages, the the (pesky) fundamentals of the UK economy. And this time its not popular either - much of the recent buying has been people that have held off since 2008, buying their own home. Once that trend is done I see very few buyers, except maybe high end immigrants looking for somewhere to park their cash.

...Economic history says bubbles can't be reflated once popped...

We'll see. Carney and Osbourne want benign increases of around 3-8% a year...they don't want 10-20% years. Stopping the HTB scheme or making lending requirements tougher would pull the rug from under this beast...

...and 1 more thing: if you were a rich russian for example and wanted to buy some housing, why would you chose the overpriced UK market over the US or the eurozone?? I wouldn't

Bull Market

Yes, a euphoric bubble is where the current bull market will terminate, as did the last, as I pointed out at the time early to mid 2007,

U.S. and U.K. soraing house prices

@Maxi:

No, you are clearly not a rich Russian; and

yes, they do prefer "the overpriced UK market over the US or the eurozone."

One reason is language (their first foreign language). Another reason is that London is the most cosmopolitan city in Europe. A 3rd reason is that many Europeans (especially the French) are downright snobby even towards French-speaking foreigners, so Russians would be miserable there!

To the ultra-rich London will always be London.
