After all, the less reliance on credit in consumer demand, the less negative reduction of the volume of lending, the expected part of the experts during the crisis. According to the head of one of the commercial networks, sale of household appliances on credit is about 30% Has the rise in prices of household appliances? Personally, we much price rise is not noticed. May have played a role of several factors. First, during the flight funds from the banking system (of which later) in the stores there were many items of household appliances, and they were purchased by the pre-crisis prices. (Source: Ruth Shin). Second, as prices in one of the networks, the buyer probably would have preferred go to the next.
To buy or to wait for this, perhaps the most interesting question. For someone who is suffering, what can I do with the money. It would seem that the head of any commercial enterprise should say: “Of course, buy!” So let’s follow the logic. Any purchase must be justified. Ie thing to be wanted, desired, finally, necessary. Accordingly, it makes no sense to buy deep fryer, if you do not like French fries. Or why not get a dishwasher, if you have a big family.
Household appliances – this is a consumer product, ie its acquisition does not apply to investment (invest money in order to get more money) itself. Main problem of household appliances to simplify our lives, to make it more comfortable. The price for the comfort of an increase in costs for energy consumption, not by chance, the Europeans are carefully studying this question when buying home technology (as we study consumption of gasoline per 100 kilometers. when purchasing a car). Is it likely rise in price of equipment or the contrary, it will become cheaper? I think the price is more a matter of psychology. The idea is that you get new technology, it means that available technology should gradually become cheaper. But on the other hand, this is no reason to wait several years – the desire to be “all right” – like growth factor prices. In other words, the greater the demand on technique, the more likely not podeshevleniya or even a rise in price (and vice versa). “I think the demand for premium brands will be lower – reflects one of our experts – However, the technique will not get cheaper.” That can act as a factor does not decrease prices? Obviously credit policies themselves retailers. If the latter will be able to replace this 30% of turnover (sales on credit) sales on credit. “We give ourselves the opportunity, if the buyer takes 3-4 months to pay purchase “, – told in one of the networks. Or, if the company does not have sufficient funds for this purpose, the promotion of cheaper brands on the market. It’s no secret that the major networks have their own brands of home appliances. Personally, I think that short-term expensive machinery may be cheaper, but cheap is more expensive due to changes in consumer preferences.
