gravity could catch the ‘stupidity’ surrounding house prices as home building se

Gravity may well have caught up with the “stupidity” surrounding house prices, prominent economist Chris Richardson says.But Mr Richardson warns that this, in turn, will further slow the pace of home building which in recent years has propped up the broader economy.This slowdown in home building comes at a time when production has weakened with large gas projects reaching completion and Cyclone Debbie’s havoc across north east Australia.This slowdown in home building comes at a time when production has weakened.

what could cause property prices to drop in sydney and melbourne as moderate gro

A significant rise in interest rates or a drop in wages will trigger a fall in property prices — putting aside factors such as a major tax reform or reduced population growth — according to a new report.As the economy is relatively healthy, the more likely situation of the two was a jump in the official interest rate, according to the Deloitte Australian Mortgage Report released on Thursday. This would make home loan repayments more expensive for existing borrowers. Even then, with low wage growth and inflation, the official interest rate remained at a record low and the Reserve Bank had not signalled any significant rises, the report says. Though interest rates were more likely to rise now compared with a year ago, they were unlikely to increase quickly. First home buyers will have to sav

A Swedish newspaper has highlighted just how rapidly house prices are increasing in Stockholm, revealing that Stockholmers who bought a large apartment in the city in 2006 would have earned 1,200 kronor ($147 dollars) per day on their home over the last 10 years.
House prices have doubled in the Swedish capital over the last decade according to Svenska Dagbladet (SvD), making the city exceptional even by European standards, with a central apartment worth significantly more than one in Copenhagen, Berlin, Munich or Paris when prices are considered per square metre.

major accounting firm deloitte reports extensive cybersecurity breach

It's currently unclear who was behind the attack, but for the past six months, Deloitte has been investigating the breach of its email server, which exposed some five million emails. Along with emails and their sometimes sensitive attachments, the hackers may have gotten their hands on usernames, passwords, IP addresses, business information and workers' health records. The breach apparently stemmed from an administrator's account that was protected by a password and not two-step verification.The Guardian reports that six of Deloitte's clients have been notified that their information was affected. A Deloitte spokesperson told the newspaper, "In response to a cyber incident, Deloitte implemented its comprehensive security protocol and began an intensive and thorough review including mobili

new research debunks home building hurdles

Australian property research conducted by has found Australians are succumbing to myths surrounding building a home and choosing to buy a move-in-ready property instead. This research has debunked Australians’ perceived challenges around building, reporting that most issues are far less likely to occur than thought.The most commonly expected and actually faced hurdle for Australian home builders is time delays; however, the research proves expectations are in fact worse than reality. Almost 37 per cent expected to face time delays compared with 23 per cent who actually experienced them.The research found that besides time delays, the top road blocks home builders expected to face versus what they actually experienced were budget blowouts (expected 23 per cent vs actual

House prices in Amsterdam were down 0.5 % in the third quarter of 2017, compared with the three months to end June, the Financieele Dagblad said on Thursday, quoting figures from real estate agency association NVM.The price of terraced homes fell by as much as 7% compared with the second quarter, the NVM figures show. Terraced homes are particularly common in parts of Noord, Zuid-Oost and Nieuw-West, all areas of the city that had been booming.‘We may have reached the top of the market,’ Sven Heinen, chair of the Amsterdam association told the paper.

oil price: trump should change his policy on iran rather than blaming opec

President Donald Trump has once again taken to Twitter to slam Opec for driving up oil prices. The group is a useful scapegoat on which to pin the blame for rising gasoline prices at home, but getting it to pump more crude won’t bring them down for long. The way to really lower prices is for him to change his policy on Iran.
Unfortunately, that’s not likely to happen, so oil prices could well keep rising. Oil prices have climbed by more than 50 per cent in a year, and very nearly touched $80 a barrel last week as traders anticipated that the world’s margin of spare production capacity available to offset supply disruptions is set to seriously shrink.
They know something that the president either can’t or won’t understand: When sanctions on Iran come into force in November, producers do

a safety-first budget won’t work | economy

This week’s Budget speech by the chancellor of the exchequer, Philip Hammond, was rather more entertaining than one might expect from a man ironically called ‘Box Office Phil’.There was an open goal of a joke about Jeremy Clarkson’s dislike of driverless cars – ‘Sorry Jeremy, this is definitely not the first time you’ve been snubbed by Hammond and May’ – and a gentle dig at Theresa May about bringing some cough sweets. Sadly, the content of the speech was predictably timid and politicised in all the wrong ways. It was a budget that will do little to solve the problems of the UK economy.For example, a longstanding problem has been ever-rising house prices: good if you are downsizing, terrible if you’re trying to buy a house for the first time. While Hammond talked up the rising rate of new

boost in collateral, not 'feeling richer,' drives consumers to borrow as home pr

PRINCETON, N.J.--When home prices rise, households tend to borrow and spend more. But economists have had trouble identifying exactly what causes that relationship. Is it that when a house becomes worth more, borrowers are able to offer more collateral to secure a loan? Or is it that when a house is worth more, borrowers feel richer so are more willing to borrow and spend? A study by Princeton University professor Henrik Kleven and colleagues, published as a working paper on the National Bureau for Economic Research website, tries to tease this out. Their key finding is that the main mechanism driving householders to borrow and spend is the collateral effect -- when the value of homes rise, people have more collateral to use for borrowing, which in turn gives them access to lower interest

rising prices ‘changing australian culture’

The Great Australian Dream of owning your own home – usually a house on a quarter-acre block – is almost considered a universal truth. But one in every three people no longer holds onto this aspiration, a new survey reveals.While one in four of 3200 people surveyed by ServiceSeeking thought they would never be able to own a home, of those who don’t own, 35 per cent said it was not a major priority in their life.This could be due to the unaffordability of housing in key east coast capital cities, ServiceSeeking chief executive Jeremy Levitt said.The Great Australian Dream of a house on a quarter-acre block is fast fading.

the last areas sydney first-home buyers can afford

House prices have risen so fast in Sydney that just four suburbs are still within reach for first-home buyers. Not surprisingly, they are all more than 45 kilometres away from the CBD.Just a small cluster of suburbs in Sydney’s west – Willmot, Tregear, Emerton and Lethbridge Park – had a median price that was on par with the typical amount spent on a property by first-home buyers.In 2000, there were 51 suburbs with a median price that matched what first-home buyers were spending, including a swathe of choices in the west and south-west.This Emerton house sold in 2016 for $440,000 – up $225,000 since 2007.

life on earth is used to gravity – so what happens to our cells and tissues in s

Look ma, no gravity! Credit: NASA , CC BYThere's one force whose effects are so deeply entrenched in our everyday lives that we probably don't think much about it at all: gravity. Gravity is the force that causes attraction between masses. It's why when you drop a pen, it falls to the ground. But because gravitational force is proportional to the mass of the object, only large objects like planets create tangible attractions. This is why the study of gravity traditionally focused on massive objects like planets.
Our first manned space missions, however, completely changed how we thought about gravity's effects on biological systems. The force of gravity doesn't just keep us anchored to the ground; it influences how our bodies work on the smallest of scales. Now with the prospect of longe
