Is there going to be a house price crash?
Buying a home can seem like a daunting task. Even when you find the right property, the financial commitment can be colossal. This is especially true today, given the high valuation of property. Many of you have found yourselves asking the difficult question “am I making the right decision?"
House prices have climbed hand in hand with the rapid expansion of credit. Put differently, money has become increasingly easy to borrow and this flood of money has fed into property prices.
When the economy turns and this money suddenly disappears from the table, borrowing will become difficult and house prices will be unsustainable at their current high levels. As the easy credit disappears, the property market will dislocate, leading to dramatic price falls.
The House Price Crash is here. Make sure you are prepared and know what to do about it.
