The Buy to let gang are getting their just rewards for their blind greed over the last few years The unfortunate thing is there will be a knock on effect for existing home owners who bought in good faith and find they are massively into negative equity as more repossessed properties come onto the market, therefore driving down house prices even further.

I think as people become more aware of property value search websites, this problem may start to disappear.
There are sites now that will show, not only the asking price, but also the sold price as well.
I bet the estate agents hate them.

When this information was not available it could depend on where the buyer was from as to what price they were prepared to pay for a property, as if you live in London, prices for a 3 bed terrace for £90,000+ is not a rip off, whereas if you are from the area you know this is unrealistic.
There are a couple of 3 bed terrace houses near me that went for £89,000 and £101,000 around 3 years ago, looking at those sites now the average selling price is £55,000 to £65,000, anyone doing a bit or research before buying can now find the truth rather than relying on the word of an estate agent.
Interesting if not dire...

Given that house price figures are being deliberately manipulated by the Media, I was inclined to search beyond them and go into searching for REAL house prices, and it seems to boil down to one thing! House prices through the years have had a steady climb on a graph apart from one or two blips or booms if you prefer, but the line on the graph has always got back on track to it's original direction. Now considering that low interest rates are keeping peoples heads above water when it comes to paying there mortgage, it just begs the question what is going to happen when the inevitable increase in interest rates comes about? Add the fact the Government have put a stop to the stimulus that kept the banks from pushing for repossessions of defaulters, then it becomes clear that there is going to be a mad scramble to sell in the near future, especially when the message hits home that the real value of  houses is nowhere near the price the owners want it to be.
It is as simple as this: North East average house hold income of £19,130. Times that by what the banks are prepared to lend at 3.5 times income, and that leaves a real average house value at approx £66,500. That is without taking into account the deposit needed by 1st time buyers or the cut backs that are headed our way. All in all, the message needs to get across that people need to face up to the truth and cut their losses, otherwise when the Banks are forced to repossess, they owners will be left with debts much higher than if they had acted earlier and put a REAL asking price for the property, rather than ask for enough to clear the debts. In the long run if people keep burying their heads in the sand, then they will ultimately lose their property with the added weight of huge debts as well.

I just tried the mortgage calculator link above.

I put in that I earned 35k and my wife earns 20k, then i put in I hadd 100,000 deposit. It said i could get 165000.

?? not good if you want a decent home in my village, or up the dale...

I thought it was 3 x my wage plus her wage plus the deposit. Must have changed coz that would be 225k

try again - does it not say that you can get a mortgage of £165,000 plus you already have the £100,000 deposit so the house you could buy would be £265,000

I think things are now rock bottom and should start to improve. There are still good yields to be had if you are looking to BTL and less chance you'll end with negative equity
