UK house prices expected to stagnate rather than fall

Recommended Posts

Despite ferocious economic headwinds, Guy Harrington, CEO at challenger lender Glenhawk, says he sees UK house prices holding up.

While he concedes the political landscape is difficult to determine, with inflation expected to hit 11% later in the year, this will naturally deliver some respite around affordability.

Real estate prices in Britain were frozen for some time. I noticed this at the beginning of the lockdown period. I believe these prices freeze was because people stopped moving around the country for work, traveling, and visiting government offices too often.

So this halt in the rise in real estate prices was expected. Despite this halt and respite, I sold my house in 2021. I took a long time to choose buyers. I didn't want any of my buyers to resell my house later for a higher price. So I found a buyer and a builder all in one. The representative from Flagship Builders promised me so much money that I was able to buy another house in another part of the country right away.

When inflation rises, it often leads to an increase in wages as well. People demand higher salaries to keep up with the rising costs of goods and services. So, while it may feel like our wallets are taking a hit, it could mean that we have more money in our pockets to tackle those housing prices. But let's not forget, my friend, that the housing market can be influenced by various factors. Economic headwinds can change direction in the blink of an eye. It's always a good idea to keep an eye on the latest trends and insights.

I couldn't resist chiming in on this exciting discussion about the UK housing market. As someone who's been passionate about real estate, it's always intriguing to see how the market weathers economic storms. I must admit, I've been closely monitoring the ups and downs of the property world, and it's heartening to hear Guy Harrington's insights on UK house prices holding steady. With all the uncertainty, this news brings a glimmer of hope.

On a more personal note, I've been daydreaming about expanding my investment horizons beyond my local market. The idea of exploring an opportunity for international investment property has been dancing in my mind lately. There's something thrilling about venturing into different real estate landscapes and embracing new opportunities."

    • Hi KoketsolG, Thank you for your prompt response. However, that does not provide me the definitive understanding I desire.  1  Chart Price Units The first and fundamental question is what are the units of the chart price scale amount of 44,271.6 shown for High Grade Copper (US2.50) and High Grade Copper (A$1)? It is in US$, US cents, thousandths of 1 US$, ten thousandths of 1 US$ (what it looks like it could be), etc per Tonne or kilogram or pound? This leads to the question of "What is 1 point and 1 tick"? If the quoted 44,271.6 is in units of ten thousands of a US$, then is 1 Point = US$1.00, or  is 1 Point = 1/10,000th US$, (more generally, the digit unit immediately to the left of the decimal point)? It is assumed that the Tick value is the amount to the right of the decimal point. Similar questions apply to the Copper and Copper ($5 min) CFDs that are priced around 9,300. 2  Underlying Futures Contract Also, according to the IG Base Metals Contract specification the Copper Contract is 25 metric tonnes, and appears it is quoted in US Dollars. However, the only High Grade Futures Contract I've been able to find using Google is the CME Copper Futures Contract which provides a contract size of 25,000 pounds, which is specified as quoted in US Dollars. Thus it is unclear to me as to the actual underlying market upon which the IG Copper CFDs are based, and hence if the chart price unit being applied is price unit / kilogram or price unit / pound. There is a further complication with IG's Copper CFDs. There are 4 IG Copper CFDs: Copper, Copper ($5 mini) High Grade Copper ($2.50) High Grade Copper (A$1) The prices for the first 2 appear to be identical, currently around 9,300, while the later two have prices currently around 42,700. So what is the underlying Future Contract definition for each of these 4 CFDS? Cheers Trevor

Today, we'll explore two alternative corrective counts: one indicating the low is already in place, and another suggesting the corrective pattern could double in size. It's crucial to exercise caution, especially for long positions. We'll discuss optimal entry points and stop placements to manage risks effectively. Russell 2000 (RUT) Current Status: The Russell 2000 is completing Wave (iv) and is expected to move higher. We will maintain our long positions.

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
