I don't need all that 'stuff'.
I'm only interested in how much my flat will be worth in two years time!
I think it is all very much related, which is why I posted the above here.
Hard to work out exactly what will happen to the property market. Let's look at what has gone on to try and work it out.
For decades the property market was hyper-inflated by the central banks via ultra-low interest rates. It is how they expanded the money supply and countered deflation. Creating new money by lending for ever-increasing property prices. Following the credit crunch, the mega funds started buying large swathes of the property market, with the banks' fresh quantitative easing capital. WEFer's were moving forward with their plan, of people owning nothing and large funds owning the lot. The banks were not worried about people buying houses on large mortgages, because they knew they would end up owning them as people defaulted (through the engineered lockdown and closing of small businesses).
So we find ourselves here, property is no longer a place to live but an investment. Prices have been artificially pumped for decades through financial manipulation.
Now we are at the point where this financial manipulation has been taken away from them. We have run away inflation and they are being forced to increase interest rates. This will bring about house price deflation, which is why the mega funds are halting their buying spree. People will not be able to buy because they are fighting to just stay alive and deal with the massive increase in costs of food & energy. So it looks like we are about to see a heavy house price correction.
As the elite get overcome we will see houses move back from being an investment to being a place to live.
We are in the process of moving back to gold-backed money. When we have finished this transition it will mean that property will not be ever increasing as it has been for years via financial manipulation. This is why I would rather own gold and silver than property currently. I suspect that house prices will remain relatively stagnant in fiat terms but crash massively with respect to real money, gold & silver.
Looking at how much money you can make from property will be a thing of the past, it will be what utility it provides that will be the focus IMO.
