    Interest rates and house prices do not exist in a vacuum and both are influenced by the overall strength or weakness of our broader economy.

    Rising interest rates generally occur in a healthy economic environment where future price inflation is expected, making them a by-product of positive economic momentum.

    While it certainly is true that higher rates increase borrowing costs, this generally happens in periods with rising incomes, higher levels of employment and increasing consumer confidence. To take our contrarian thinking to its logical conclusion, we should all be rooting for higher interest rates.

    Seriously. Rock bottom rates are sustained when concern over inflation is replaced by fears of disinflation and outright deflation.

    Higher rates, on the other hand, are a sign of increasing confidence in our future economic prospects.

    We have already adjusted due to TDSR in 2013.

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.
