Previous studies have discussed the role of interest rates in determining house price. The majority of these papers identify interest rates as the most important explanatory variable. One early study is Abraham and Hendershott (1992). Using pooled cross-sectional data on metropolitan house prices in the US between 1977 and 1991, they find that macroeconomic factors including interest rates and employment are significant in influencing house prices. Iacoviello and Minetti (2003) argue that, over time, house prices became more sensitive to interest rate changes due to financial liberalisation in European countries including the UK.
First, the price is one of the factors that carried out the demand curve. If the price of tobacco products rose to 70 R.O, and the purchase of tobacco products less. That 's what I mean, when you increase the price of tobacco products, the demand for this product will decline. (Inverse) relationship, because the required amount of falling prices higher and higher with a lower price, we say that the quantity required is linked to the negative price. When other factors constant (fixed).
If consumer increase in saving, it will reduce the rate of economic growth. Diagram A When the consumption in the market decreases, the aggregate demand curve will shift to left, from AD1 to AD2. It will form a short run equilibrium at point B. At point B, the country’s
If due to some reason, consumers expect that in the near future prices of the goods would rise, then in the present they would demand greater quantities of the goods so that in the future they should not have to pay higher prices. The next is the prices of related commodities such as substitutes and complements can also change the demand for a commodity. Usually, the decrease in demand does not occur due to the rise in price but due to the changes in other determinants of demand but decrease in demand for a commodity may occur due to the fall in the prices of its substitutes, rise in the prices of complements of that commodity and if the people expect that price of a good will fall in
Housing prices are determined by the relations of demand and supply, and it is likewise any other goods and services in the market economy (Hashim, 2010). The increased population will lead to the increase in housing demand (Mohd. Tawil, Hamzah, Khoiry, Che Ani, & Basri, 2011). High demand in housing and low people’s demand for owner-occupied housing is generally caused by not only the housing price, but also population growth, household formation rate and income growth (Flavin & Yamashita, 2002). Changes in the quantity of housing demanded will affect the housing supply, thus posing a direct impact on housing price.
Possibility of hot money flow. High interest rates might be attractive enough for foreign investors and increase their incentives to save in UK, this way demand for £ will increase and cause appreciation of currency. Appreciation as a result will make exports less attractive and less competitive on global market; likewise, imports consumption might rise, as they will be more attractive domestically. Although, this is likely to have minimal impact due to recent depreciation of the currency and strong global expansion All of those changes result in falling aggregate demand (AD) (which consists of Consumption, Investment, Government Spending and Net Exports), as investment, consumption and net exports all will be reduced. Following diagram will help understand how this affects economy.
The result would be an increase in the real value of consumption at each price level and an increase in aggregate demand. The result would be an increase in the real value of consumption at each price level and an increase in aggregate demand. In the second half of the 1990s, sustained economic growth and low unemployment fueled high expectations and consumer optimism. Surveys revealed consumer confidence to be very high. That consumer confidence translated into increased consumption and increased aggregate demand.

This may be the case because there will be a limited amount of money chasing a set amount of goods and services. The demand for the goods and services will decrease and prices will stop increasing as well. An appreciation of the currency may make the exports more expensive. But it is also worth noting that an increase in the value of a currency leads to a decrease in interest
