  1. When house prices were on the way up, perceived good deals were available. I remember working in two identical houses next to each other on a Laings site in 2005. One client paid £244k, the other £180k. Same internal specs too. Your figures don't matter much, but would be of interest to readers of your story, and how they compare to asking prices and actual sold prices in your area (postcode?). Personally I don't like newbuild quality, character, or plot size. (assuming it's a newbuild you're talking about) I would ban all bans on any words from the site.
  2. I think they won't be saved, and the crash there will be as big. With less money all round for holidays, and seeing what the cottages rent for during summer months http://www.stilwell.co.uk/ eg, they don't really make for cheap holidays, when including travel expenses, food / drink prices, entertainment etc for the brits. And I can't see more Europeans travelling to our SW, the euro may buy more, but they're still debt starved as we are. So, perhaps less people travelling to the SW, oversupply of cottages being available to rent, forced sellers, repo's, second home-owers will, as you said, crash - I'm hoping anyway! , 2009 or 2010, (autumn 2009 is my complete uneducated guess with fingers crossed) I'd guess at more camping and caravan park holidays, but even these are expensive 2 weeks if your strapped for debt / cash. I actually am surprised Europeans come to England at all, apart from specific shopping hoildays or interest in our history. I like Devon and Cornwall for it's scenery and surfing, but if I were from Europe, I'd prefer Portugal, France, or Spain for my surf.
  3. good old fashioned scrumpy, I'm seeking a decent easy reliable scrumpy recipe, as next year my apple scrumping will be expanded X 10
  4. Feel's like a monday night to me, too . . . but it's a bonus for you that she won't vote on the show again !
  5. • ICM interviewed a random sample of 1,003 adults aged 18+ by telephone between 12-14 December 2008. Interviews were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults. Percentages may not add up to 100 because of rounding. ICM is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. FFS. . .
  6. Well, since I can't get my mouth round them right now, I suppose they aren't real, hey ho, nice to look at on the screen now, a bit like my bank balance
  7. (my useless addition to a thread today, hopefully no first round knockouts...) Fight!!!
  8. So, via the law of unintended consequences, this can mean even LESS people buying 'second hand' houses? Long live HPC.

  11. I also wonder what the "specified newly built homes" will be. Shitshoe boxes perhaps that are marked up? I also wonder about their statement "You can apply if you are a first-time buyer with a household income of less than £60,000 a year and you can’t afford to buy a suitable property on the open market without help". How can you earn nearly £60,000 a year, and not be able to afford a suitable property on the open market FFS?! Unless it is an admittance that the market is overvalued.
  12. If it was Brown, the shoeless man would've been shot in the head 7 times before the second shoe was removed (in case the shoes were explosive). If I could throw anything at Brown, It'd be 39% of GDP in pound coins. ( or 43%, 0r 400%. or whatever . . .)
  13. Instead of starting a new thread, hope it's appropriate here, can I ask what you think the consequences of all this will be? More specifically if possible with Santander (Abbey, A&L, B&. Can Santander take the £2billion+ hit, are savings safe, and will lending be more restricted? (when I irrationally worry about my savings with A&L, like now, I stare at my avatar to remind me what's really important)
  14. Is it a plan to just throw away (give to builders) more tax payers money, and to enslave more youngsters? "If the value of your home goes down by the time you sell, you will only need to repay the equity loan from what is left over after you have repaid your mortgage. " http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommuni...hemes/DG_171504 It also states 30%, and not £30k upper limit - "If you are eligible: you could get an ‘equity loan’ of up to 30 per cent on the cost of a property "
  15. I prefer the two ingredients they lack are - left testicle, right testicle.

  17. Sorry, I'll take a breath now, well, after. . . - Gordon Brown apologises . . .
