Spanish Flu an indicator of house price growth?

Posted: 22/2/2022


Look to the aftermath of the Spanish Flu to compare to what will happen in the post-Covid world suggests one high profile London estate agent. Peter Wetherell points to the massive economic bounce back in the 1920's post Spanish Flu and says the same has started post-Covid. However, Peter deals regulary in seven figure homes in Mayfair, which aren't always a barometer for the rest of the country. Plus there are other variables such as in the 1920's it was also post WW1 and in the 2020's we are post-Brexit, another unknown, so caution is advised. In the world of Buy-to-Let, investors should always look at the rental return in comparison to the property price. The figure to look for is 7% gross per annum.
