  1. Remember this one? Carved it up, ignored all advice, and here it is, two years' on, still unsold, and now on eBay.....shocking, he? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Fantasic-Chapel-conv...A1%7C240%3A1318
  2. So, I was almost tempted to feel sorry for Rosie...given that her husband has just been made redundant and they've blown his pay-out on the deposit for this house, and she's freelance....not exactly rolling in money then. And then I read this: http://property.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life...icle3763252.ece She just seems to feel that she's immune. That she can buck the economy of the entire country by wearing a lucky miniskirt (subtext: although I have four children, I'm still hot), and that she can still pull money out of thin air. If she finds this thread, she'll probably complain about the horrid people she's never met who wish her so ill. But the fact is that she's forced herself, her opinions, her children, her husband on us FOR YEARS. She's spun her ideology through the prism of her private life and foisted it on the rest of us. We were supposed to be envious of her, of her finanical bravery, her property wizardry, her N1 lifestyle, her middle class aspirations.....and this, Rosie, if you do happen this way, is where we call in our debt. We're sick of you and everything you stand for.
  3. http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/dealing-with-...p;in_page_id=62 Hmmm. So she bought the house for 698,000. Expected to spend 100,000 doing it up. Actually spent 250,000. Total 948,000. On sale with Foxtons for 1.495 million minus 15 per cent Foxtons premium, is 1.27 million. Minus the standard 15 per cent over-valuation at the moment, equals 1 million pounds. Which if she's lucky enough to get will give her a princely profit of 52,000 pounds. Even this, if you think about it, is pretty unlikely. Houses in Islington just aren't shifting. The plus point for any potential buyer of Millard mansions, of course, is that they know they're buying off a distressed seller. I think she may just have blown it. Big time.
  4. Incidentally, do check out the fact that she's got a framed picture of her from a magazine in her kitchen. And an oil painting of her in her living room. Do you think she might have narcissism issues?
  5. It's here: http://www.foxtons.co.uk/search?bedrooms_f...mit_type=search Now, I don't want to be a bitch....oh, okay then. That kitchen is horrible. Is that your definition of 'snazzy', Rosie? Ugh. And the living room! For 1.495 million you get a 12 ft by 12ft lounge barely big enough for a two person sofa. And the bedroom, this is just a decorating issue rather than a house issue, but those curtains, that carpet..... But really, it's a terrible layout, not nicely done and it's on with Foxtons, so assume 15 per cent over even a normal asking price which is at least 15 per cent over what any one would think of paying.... Mind you, no wonder she wants to move.
  6. Kirsty was on Radio 5 last spring, April, I think, roundly denying any house price crash and informing us that she had, that very week, been helping some first time buyers from cheltenham. He was in the RAF. Them, I assume. So old, out of date, with an add-on voiceover patched over later. I wonder whether Claudia has any regrets yet....
  7. Look. You know what really detracts from this site, which pisses me off every time I visit, is the casual misogynism that's always on display here. You disagree with Kirsty Allsopp's opinions. This is the point. And every time one of you mentions her figure, her face, her breasts, the fact that you would or wouldn't spit-roast her, debases both you and this site. Who is your audience, boys? It immeasurably detracts from the very good, very salient points raised here, and it's so unfunny, so dull, so misguided, so frickin' sexist that you all need to take a good long look at your bald spots, your spare tyres, your narrow, narrow views.
  8. So, I watched this last night as a repeat on More 4 and just looked it up to check what's happened to it. It's still unsold. Would you believe? But the price is now a much more 'realistic' 1,095,000. At the height of the boom in 2007, it was valued at 825,000. Does this add new a new dimension to the meaning of 'denial'? Or am I being naive and this is just par for the course? http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.a...p;agentid=07784
  9. Actually, the Telegraph has made its deputy property redundant: http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/jun/2...onofjournalists It lays the blame on the drop in advertising. Of course, the fact that he just so happened to be the NUJ Father of the Chapel, probably didn't help.
  10. Ah, c'mon. When the lead article of the front page of the Daily Telegraph says that house prices are in freefall, that's got to be good news. The rest is quibbling.
  11. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/main.jhtm...bcnhouse124.xml The lead article. I'll say that again...The LEAD article.
  12. The Standard also has a re-hash o f the Mail piece (london's homes falling fastest) here: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/art...f+UK/article.do
  13. Great BIG piece in today's London Evening Standard http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/art...ears/article.do
  14. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10...er-rest-UK.html Actually just read the piece and the headline is the best thing about it:
