Re: investing in real estate vs buying property

You seem to ignore the fact (or just like to troll around) that banks do not sell your properties any time they feel like. First because they can't, second because they are rather interested in keeping you on the line forever, even with a higher rate mortgage, which actually is happening in Switzerland to pretty much everything.

Those who miscalculate their financial power to jump into real estates will eventually get burnt/foreclosed, or you can finance your losses if you can/want. Same as with any miscalculated investment.
You are incorrect, Banks do foreclose especially in a falling market to reduce their losses. They have to increase tier 1 capital depending of the 'status' & quality of their loan book or they could get closed down by the regulator. If a payment is late or at loan renegotiating a Bank can recall the loan, thats in 5 years time if you took out a 5 year fix.
