Re: Any feelings out there about property prices?

pfff

for sale property prices are driven by rental prices

most property is available to rent not buy

most people rent

rents have not been coming down... and as most rents are fixed by large corporations... not individual landlords... it'll take major economic upheavals to bring down rents.. and that's not forecast

so.. while a fixed rate mortgages stay on the floor and the monthly mortgage payments stay below the rentable equivalent... and the swiss don't start building huge amounts of for sale properties (which they wont.. they'll balance supply and demand) .. imho.. property prices will stay firm
