Report Whats The Point Of This Forum? in House prices and the economy Posted November 1, 2005 What is this forum and website trying to achieve? Are the members merely trying to talk down the housing market because they can't afford their own property. I'm a housebuilder and developer. We've just finished 7 houses in Hemel Hempstead and they all sold for the asking price in 4 months - no incentives whatsoever. We've just bought another site for 24 in Ampthill and we've noticed a lot of sales and activity in this area also. I suggest that you all get out there and buy the property of your dreams and enjoy it, it beats living with your mum! What is the point of your post? Things can't be THAT great if you feel the need to register on a bears website and try to convince them (admittedly rather half-heartedly) to buy property... I guess the bottom of the barrel has already been scraped?
