The World Property Forum is an economics and finance forum dedicated to discussion of global real estate markets, including house prices, housing affordability, and the likelihood of a global house price crash. Is there a housing bubble? Will house prices crash, boom or stagnate? Is it better to buy using a home loan, or rent and save the difference? How might a credit crunch or peak debt environment impact property prices? Is the property market a pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme? Can house prices rise forever as people bet on future gains, refinance their mortgage and borrow against equity, or can we find a more sustainable long term approach to managing the global housing market? These are the type of questions we hope to address here, at the World Property Forum, the premier real estate site for property bears, bulls, investors, and speculators! Whether you're a Property Investor, First Home Buyer (FHB) or you're a happily renting tenant, this forum has something for everyone. The forum includes a blog feature, so members may create their own property blog. Members may talk finance, modern monetary theory (MMT), debt deflation, talk money, or discuss Somersoft style property investing topics. Are reverse home equity loans good or bad for society? Is the housing shortage a myth? What about negative gearing? Reverse mortgages? Are too many people taking on debt consolidation when they cannot even manage basic debt management? Are they gambling with their future? Were the floods a black swan event, exposing many with inadequate home insurance? How does asbestosis and mesothelioma impact home values? Is it a good time to buy a house? To find out, keep a close eye on auction results and auction clearance rates, and visit this forum often for all the latest house price news.
