Sales Trends - Property Market Update
No More Houses for Sale!
Dated: 29th June 2007
Arlets.com have researched the latest findings in the property
market and can announce a shortage of property for sale.
Recently the popular media (TV,RADIO & INTERNET) announced an influx
of new properties on to the market creating an over supply to demand.
What the media missed completely was the number of house sales agreed
during this upsurge in houses offered for sale before the June 1st deadline.
The reality is, the more houses to market the more houses went under offer,
interestingly the volume of houses under offer increased with the volume
of new properties to market just shows how robust the property market
The property market needs a number of influences to continue growing
in value. Examples of this are put simply based on similar market strategy
used by Tesco or other large retailers: the more you have to offer the
more you will sell, even in a recession! You need supply to offer enough
choice to the buyer, the more choice the more buyers will shop with you
because you have the selection. SIMPLE.
So what happened in 1989 to 1994?
High interest rates coupled with low job security.
WE HAVE NEITHER OF THESE INFLUENCES, nor do we have a European war or
global conflict (even if Tony Blair succeeds to be our next Middle East
Representative it doesn't tell us anything).
CAN THIS LAST?
Some market analysts think it's good growth on a 10 year cycle starting
1982, 1992, 2002 and therefore 2012.
We accept 1982 and 1992 (I bought in '92 and did well out of it). I accept
2002 was not easy for commercial enterprises following 9/11, but 2012?
But we can suggest there is a market correction every ten years - some
small, some bigger. Therefore the next market correction should be around
2008 to late 2009 followed by a re-alignment of markets, followed by another
market expansion leading us to assume a stronger market from 2012/2013
to 2020. BUT DON'T QUOTE US ON THIS. From our analysis we could be 2 years
off the mark either way.
