Perhaps he's earning some needed money from such adventures...could make up for all the money he lost since STR in 2001 !

25 was my payment - to cover my costs.

BTW - get your facts straight if you want to be personal.

Anyway who are you to comment on me personally? Comment on my statements not on me personally, anonymously. P..ck! :angry:

It's on listen-again - http://www.bbc.co.uk...od/london.shtml

There's a lot of denial out there. Radio shows like this are a good indicator for judging the bottom; when the callers all agree property is a bad thing to own, it will be a good time to own property.

Many posters have commented on your statements, your judgements and your forecasts and get met with the same aggressive and childish replies. If your going to self promote yourself expect to be humoured. Or at least maybe answer why STR was such a good idea in 2001. It's not like your a FTB having been priced out the market. You STRed hoping to profit from the housing market. Whether thats a good idea or not ??? :blink:

BTW I'm a lady so therefore not a p..ck.

I am not going to respond to personal aggression especially when the facts you and other aggressors state are rubbish. This is not the News of the World.

Why don't you put yourself in the firing line ratehr than act as the execution squad firing? (Much easier to fire than be fired at, isn't it?)



Typo and added about firing line.

It's not personal aggression. I'm told you STRed in 2001. If this is untrue why not state what your situation is. It has a strong bearing behind what your comments and views are now surely?

You seem very upset. It's eating inside you perhaps this decision to STR in 2001?

Also overall what is the point you are making. The market will go down? Well ... well done !! all markets go up down and sideways. No one can predict (however much they say they can) when and how much... The advice you give on this site is for what purpose? To hope to push prices down ? I'd understand if you were a FTB hoping to get onto the ladder but what is your motivation if it isn't to correct a big error you may (or may not have made ) in 2001.

What's it to you or anyone what I did? If you want to know my professional views they are here and on our firm's site. What I did is irrelevant. And you were told wrong!

I don't give advice on this site. I state my view, as do many others.

I note you don't answer my questions thus I shall no longer answer yours.

Put yourself in my shoes: I am actually visible. Perhaps the only poster who is NOT anonymous. That is why I should be able to keep my personal affairs to myself. Before I was the spokesman I was anonymous so I told my story. I am no longer anonymous. That you Bruce Banner can't see that, I think you are mean-spirited and I see it as personally aggressive. So, that is why I reported your post.

BTW - once again, I am NOT a Moderator. I have no deletion facility. Thus, as any member, I reported your post as I found it and the HPC Mods took action as they saw fit with regards to Forum rules.

Break the rules and you will leave yourself open to question.

Although the forum rules make no mention of it being forbidden to quote an old post, I take your point about posts that you made before becoming the spokesman.

This post was made by you in November 2007, long after you had become the website spokesman, so I assume that it is in order to quote it.

Thanks Doc

Actually I sold in late 2002 to be with my fiance 20 miles south (Broxbourne) and 100k more expensive. SO we didn;t buy back in. Been very comfortable with the decision ever since given its 15-20 yr cycle. Prices will plummet and in a few years we will find the 1 in 30 that falls 75%.

ALso, we have lived FAR better than if we'd borrowed.

Do come and say hello and that goes for anyone. Email me via my details if you think you will.

How about an E Herts pub?

Lest there be any doubt.

No I believe prices will fall and am astounded that a so called Conservative led government could act in such a stupid way. As you can see from today, there are 2,000 HtB applicants and it has been on MSM none stop all day and they make up about 3.5% of a typical months mortgages.

BTL is a good potential way to bankruptcy and yes sometimes I make points to hopefully make people think.

Give it a rest. I don't put my personal arrangements out there any longer. If I did 9 months ago then perhaps I shouldn't have. IIRC, that was to clear some things up - once and for all. Get it?

Good man.

Our target remains 35% by c 2011. Back to 2002/03 levels.

However, as I have written for our client newsletter for next month that now looks optimistic. Can't say anymore as don't know anymore.

But 1999 levels are not out of the question.
