Add Home Value By Going Green - Insulation, Green houses and Water Butts / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to home value of 200% to 300% of typical costs incurred. Typically £700 spent can convert into as much as a £2k increase in value.

Beware the Latest U.S. Mortgage Market Trap / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Get ready. There’s more trouble ahead for home buyers, home builders, and especially homeowners who took out home-equity lines of credit before the housing crisis. Those heydays have turned into haymakers.

What’s already started to happen might not only knock out the formerly aspiring but now petering-out housing recovery, but also might knock the already weak economy to the ground.

How Trees Increase or Reduce Home Values - Dangers, Inspection, Neighbours, Pruning and Removal / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to home value of 200% to 500% of typical costs incurred. Typically £500 spent can convert into as much as a £2.5k increase in value.

It is the responsibility of every home owner to ensure that their trees are in keeping with the size of their garden and neighbouring properties. Not only do very tall unpruned trees result in a lot of maintenance issues such as from falling leaves branches and wide spreading roots, as well as the legal responsibility of the tree owner should during a storm the tree topple over and damage property or even cause injury.

Home Ownership Debt, Mortgages, Slavery and the Risk of Ruin / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain has a debt based economy where expanding total debt is the primary enabler for the economy to expand and that is the primary purpose of the Bank of England to enable governments to expand total debt be it public or private. However, following the credit crisis collapse of 2007-2009, individuals and banks become reluctant to borrow despite record low interest rates and hence why despite successive Governments (Labour and Coalition) having gone on a relentless spending binge to the tune of £750 billion of new debt the economy stagnated due to the failure to ignite a borrowing frenzy amongst Britain's working population.

Help to Buy Caution - House Buying or Renting Scenarios / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

You may not be fully aware that the Help to Buy Scheme is an upto 20% EQUITY BACKED LOAN, which means that the government owns 20% of your property in exchange for the 5 year interest free loan. The loan is repaid when the property is sold or at the end of the mortgage term when you repay 20% of the SALE PRICE. So if house prices rise by 33% then so does the value of the loan at the time of repayment.

Will a Garage Conversion Add Value to My Home? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It can be very tempting for home owners in need of living space to contemplate the conversion of their integral or attached garages. However this can turn out to be a huge mistake in terms of it being highly unlikely that you would ever recoup the costs in terms of an increase in your homes value, not unless you live in places such as central London where space carry's a heavy premium.

How Much Value Does a Conservatory Add to Your Home? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to home value of 50% to 133% of typical costs incurred. Typically £16k spent can convert into as much as a £22k increase in value, though this is very variable and can result in a loss of 50% of the costs incurred.

Whether a conservatory will add value to your home is not a clear cut decision as it depends on a number of factors such as the intended quality of build as the price for conservatories ranges from £5k at the low end for a wholly UPVC build bolted onto the back of houses to one built onto a dwarf wall of upto 30square metres in area that can cost upto £30k.

Home Buyers, Sellers and Estate Agents, Sell Your House for Cash? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

What you need to know about Estate Agents

There will be greater competition in affluent areas between estate agents for business due to higher potential commissions, therefore there is a tendency to more aggressively value these properties so as to secure business and shut out other agents which means houses at least when first going on the market will tend to be over priced by typically 10%.

UK Buy to Let Property Investing Business Top 12 Tips / Housing-Market / Buy to Let

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Investing in buy to let properties is nothing new for this is a near 3 decades old trend that began as a consequence of the Thatcher government introducing the policy of selling off council houses that continues to this day despite the emergence of the housing associations sector, today private rental properties out number social housing with some 10 million people in private rental properties more than triple the number 20 years ago as rising property prices and cost of living is pushing home ownership out of the reach of those on average earnings.

How to Safeguard Your Portfolio from the Coming U.S. Housing Market Crisis / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: The housing market has enjoyed a boom that’s lasted several years as prices have ratcheted upward toward the 2008 highs, prior to the subprime mortgage meltdown. Now, while the housing market has been fairly steady with above-average price appreciation potential in homebuilder stocks, I still think we could be headed for some issues on the horizon.

UK and US Housing Bull Market Trend Forecasts and How to Profit New Free 300 page Ebook / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The UK housing bull market has barely begun and already bubble talk fills the media air waves whilst similar bubble talk in the US began a year earlier! The latest media noise concerns mortgage caps and rising interest rates, both are red herrings as the media fail to even be conscious of the primary drivers of this bull market, hence much of which is written will remain several years behind the curve and continue to miss whole bull markets just as the stocks bull market has passed under their collective radar for OVER 5 years! The end of which is supposedly always imminent which is now also repeating towards the housing markets with constant commentary of a an about to burst bubble.

U.S. Home Owners Drowning in the American Dream / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

According to a new Zillow report, 40% of all US mortgage holders can’t afford to sell their homes. That is 20 million Americans homeowners, 10 million who are downright underwater and another 10 million who are so close to being there that they don’t have the money to cover the cost of selling. And those are still numbers across the spectrum; things are far towards the bottom. ’30% of homes in the bottom price tier are in negative equity, while 18.1% of homes in the middle tier and 10.7% in the top tier are underwater’. If we assume that at the bottom, like across the spectrum, as many people are close to being submerged as those who already are, that would mean 60% of bottom tier borrowers are too poor to sell their homes (i.e. have less than 20% equity).
