Estate Agents Are Reporting A Sudden Rush Of Panic Stricken First Time Buyers Wanting To Buy Property

7 posts in this topic

Estate agents are reporting a sudden deluge of panic stricken first time buyers and people who sold-to-rent who are rushing to their shops to buy whatever properties they can afford in order to take advantage of a flattening in property prices and to get a foot onto the property ladder before house prices start to rise again.

These same estate agents have noticed that many of the people rushing to buy property are people who sold-to-rent and are deeply regretting their decision to sell to rent and are desperate to buy back their properties even though the prices of the properties they had sold have risen significantly in value since they sold.

Many of the STRs are people who sold their homes in the belief that house prices will have fallen significantly by now but have been shocked and disillusioned by the continuing rises in houses prices since they sold their properties. Many STRs are trying to buy back the properties they sold even if this means buying the properties they sold at a much higher price than the price they sold the property for. This is causing some STRs who are buying back their properties to lose all the capital gains money they made on the sale of their house in order to buy back their houses and in some cases the STRs have lost not only the capital gains money but have incurred a considerable cost in buying back the properties that they sold.

Many STRs are getting fed up of renting and are flocking back to the estate agents in a desperate panic to get back onto the property ladder before house prices start to rise again. Many STRs privately admit to having made significant losses when buying back their homes because all the capital gains they made upon selling their house was wiped out when they bought back their houses because of the steep rises in house prices that ocurred after they sold their houses.

Many STRs are completely disillusioned by the entire idea of trying to make money from the property market after having got their fingers so badly burnt.

Many STRs are filled with fear and apprehension when walking past an estate agent for fear that they might catch a glimpse of what their house is now worth after they sold it and they are making a conscious decision to avoid going past estate agents for fear of finding out how much the properties they sold have gone up by since they sold them.

Some STRs have developed a phobia of estate agent advertisements in newspapers and the property supplements in newspapers in case they discover by how much the properties they sold has risen since they sold. Many STRs try to ignore and set aside the property supplements and estate agent adverts and when their friends read the supplements and see by how much the properties that the STR sold has risen by they grin and pull a face of unbridled and unrestrained glee that their STR friend is missing out on having made so much money. The friends of STRs sometimes tease the STRs by asking them by how much they think their property has risen in value since they sold it and some homeowner friends look up the value of their homes on the internet and gloat and shout out loud to the STR how much their house is worth now just to deliberately annoy the STR and make the STR feel sick as a parrot.

Many STRs are having sleepless nights and breaking into cold sweats about how much money they could have made if only they did not sell so early. Some STRs are finding the taunts and baiting that they are getting from friends at work who have not sold-to-rent unbearable but the STRs try to keep a brave face but deep inside the STRs are feeling absolutely sick and that they have missed out on the further steep rises in house prices. Many STRs are increasing getting depressed as they see no end to the property boom and are becoming ever more miserable and angry with themselves and some are saying that selling to rent was the worst decision of their lives.

Its a piss take but there are still plenty of wouldbe buyers out there who are tempted,seen loads on here over the past year.Infact you were one Fred?.A while back I wrote a thread on the very subject ie that still plenty of buyers in denial(rear view mirror attitude) and we need to see thses sucked out before any major falls.The sudden u turn by a few bears over the past few months tells me that we are getting closer.
