Property Stats

 

  • On average, UK property prices more than double every decade.
  • Over the last fifty years, UK property has only gone down twice in real terms – 1971-73, and 1989-92. Five years out of fifty.
  • Inflation in the last 50 years has been 1,689%. The stock market has grown by 2,700%, but UK house prices have increased by 22,000%.
  • More millionaires have been made from the property market than through any other investment vehicle.
  • The UK currently needs around 230,000 extra homes a year, but only 170,000 are being built annually, a shortfall of some 60,000. This leads to higher property prices and this in turn means more people unable to get on to the property ladder.
  • Unlike pensions, you can release equity and equity release is tax free.
