    Someone buys a house? That's hardly a boomed. WGAS anyway.

    Fail boom.

    It's not debt, it's leveraged investment.

    I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    And I got a good price on this one, at around 10% discount
    Am guessing it's in the S.E. at those prices?

    I bought at the peak in 2006 and the house lost 20% in value in the ensuing crash up to 2011. But in those 4 or 5 years I was fortunate to have a constant tenancy paying down the mortgage and providing a profit on top. The house is now worth double what it was at the trough in 2011... but it's taken 15 years.

    What this does show is that property, like many investments, is a long term game.

    EDIT: but I'm not buying right now!
    EDIT2: having said that, house prices will probably go up next year because Covid will wane and people will start getting back to normal life.

    in reality I'm 1 property away from them being valued at £1m with debt being at about half a mil. It was a joke in the first post that I'm wealthy in debt . I will never sell a property, not with current CGT changes so don't care that much about their valuation. What matters to me is how much yield I can squeeze from the deposit and in that sense anything above interest is actually money in pocket.

    I think they will especially in airbnb-friendly areas. Just waiting for travel to start again, whilst enjoying income from holidaying locals during lockdown
