  1. What do people think of Islington ? Personally thought it was a bit of a dump when I went there but I'm told its 'up & coming'
  2. Which is precisely what many of the bears on here have had the courage to do. But the accompanying bitterness shown by some just isnt worth it IMHO.'Its always someone elses fault ' will get you nowhere except maybe the nuthouse. Its been a long struggle for HPs to start to come down but they will. Banks started this & they will want their pound of flesh sooner rather than later. Take the chance when it comes & live your own life.
  3. Yogurt Knitters ROFLMAO !!!! On a more serious note , if people are that bitter about the perceived unfairness of the current housing market that they start blaming it on a a particular group of people then I worry. My guess is that when the crash comes & they eventually buy those types of people will still start laying into someone else just for getting a better deal than them or some other spurious reason. If 'owning' a house becomes that all-consuming then I would stand back and look at my life ...
  4. go to the forum on betfair go to 'general betting' sub forum check out the thread 'what odds will anyone give me on house prices' 1. HPC gets a mention 2. They had a thread aboout 12 months ago that was reasonably bullish , whereas this one seems to be a lot more wary
  5. Latest odds fom Betfair cut of 0.5 % 129/1 cut of 0.25% 50/1 up 0.25% 310/1 up 0.5% 1000/1 No change 1/100
  6. "With a name like Twopey are you not an HR professional anyway!!!" LOL , no chance- rather admit to working at McDs and being unable to gain my gold star due to incompetence. "HR" & "Professional" - Oxymoron anyone ?
  7. Thank you Charlie for the zz explanation I've not been popping in to HPC so much these days (can now get access to betting sites at work so spend far too much time/money on these instead) so I did wonder where he'd gone . Even thought he may have been banned (though god knows who would either have the cojones or be so cruel to do that )
  8. When you say HR do you mean 'Personnel' ? Dont usually go a bundle on these "redundancies looming " threads but if HR people are being released then I feel that this could only benefit the economy greatly.
  9. "I think we are justified to protest and to protest very loudly..." Dont need to be loud, just dont buy until you think the price is right. Best & most potent form of protest with this market. As for the "owning more than one home - is it moral ?" argument, the idea doesnt remotely appeal to me but if people want to take the risk of BTL or some sudden new government "tax attack" on second homes then good luck to them. At the moment its cheaper to rent so enjoy living at someone elses expense I say ....
  10. Passed 3 A levels but never entertained the idea of uni. Only stayed on at school because I was too idle to leave . When i did , I was donig cash in hand at a jewellery manufacturer. left that to work in the civil service but got bored after a few years so did a course in computer programming and now work in IT. Dont really have an opinion either way on degrees. Some people with them are excellent at their jobs , some are crap. PS making a living on betfair ? Good luck.....
  11. "However I think posters need to be careful when responding to unfavourable housing reports, other than simply saying they are rigged, otherwise there is a danger that the site will lose creditability." Hear Hear. Anything can be spun any which way depending on your point of view or vested interest. Just read between the lines. There may even be a little bit of a rise these last couple of months but after all is said and a Prices will comedown, end of. As an aside, have not posted here in ages now that there seems to be definite downward momentum, so dont feel the need so much. Howeve
  12. Should be a door somewhere on the ground floor. Go through that and you should find it ...
  13. And where would they downsize too ? Somewhere nice & cheap AND in a nice neighbourhood ? PRICES ARE DROPPING PRICES ARE DROPPING just wait a little longer & do your own thing rather than try and decide what others should be doing with their house & money..
  14. As one of THE Monkey converts from thisismoney back in 2003 this is a sorry day. Good luck monksta. Enjoy the new house & at least pop back occasionally. If not here then see if you can find out where grats21 or montymanchester (remember them ?) post these days . It would be hilarious to hear their reactions to the legends reappearance. Be Good (ish)
  15. Couple of thoughts really.. sympathy at their ignorance/stupidity is slightly tempered by the fact that if they do get help, I'll bet they don't end up repaying anything near the 34K. 2nd thought. The people who had to ask COAB if he was joking. You're joking right !!!???
  16. Will you let us know what the offers (if any) are horace ?
  17. Its gonna get bad, more so than people think. Any jobs lost in this recession wont be recreated afterwards - certainly not in this country.
  18. Brief Summary then for those unable to access. Most (50%)people think stagnation at least. the next largest group (40%)is prices dropping. Small group (5%)think that its different this time. small group (5%) Think they can make money on betfair.(More deluded than the 5% above IVHO) The guy who provides link to HPC reckons that "it provides fascinating reading" He also reckons BTL will cause meltdown. Quote from others on the forum who accessed HPC. "H.P.C is hardly an impartial view though." "Some good points, but a little too over-the-top for my liking..." Still , if gamblers are
  19. I am seriously luvin this thread , seeing ole dogbox the reddleman wandering lonely as a cloud through the highways & byways of good ole rural GB; checking out ye hardy cundry folk in their glorious houses. Getting an eyeful of a bit of Chrissy evert tennis frilly & a pint of old bulls peculiar for good measure. I assume you're fishing big time db ? A classic of our time.... just a little query though .. Like Japan ?
  20. Just in case anyone is interested ... Interesting seeing the gamblers point of view when it comes to the housing market + a name check for HPC too !! (By the way , I havent read this all the way through so apologies for any bad language - theres bound to be some !!) http://forum.betfair.com/jive3/betex/Threa...MessageCount=89
  21. ...Due to office location change and lack of network Internet access for the last 6 weeks (still remained logged in tho!) so thought I would pop back just to see reaction to Gordy boys "half price" mortages for all the 1st time buyers. I admit I should trawl thru the posts myself but I'm a lazy get so if someone could give a brief resume of opinion on here. Myself , I dont think it will make slap-shit of a difference as the economy seems to be going down the potty, but I thought I'd come back for some reassurance & reasoned argument from the more economically minded/literate amongst us.
  22. I Honestly dont think it matters who you vote for when it comes to House prices - they are coming down. Full stop. Night night.
