  1. Wow, some sensible comments!!

    interestingly enough in the Scotman`s TV pages last week was a review piece of all the progammes about property and how incredibly passe` they were all now given the current climate etc etc -

    this little article said more truth about about the Scottish property market than i`ve read in the property section of the Scotsman in the last two years

    I used to think Helen Mcluscty or what-ever her name is was so bad it was funny, now, as per other posts, this mis-information needs a writ.. :angry:

  2. It's easy to forget how hard it was to buy a house just a few years back. Before they were available online, to find/buy a house it was virtually a full-time job. Having to keep in constant contact with EAs, who were often only open Saturday mornings when one wasn't at work. As well as EAs, other services that were also only open Saturday mornings often too precedence, such as the Post Office, picking up parcels or getting your hair cut.

    It used to be so much harder.

    Now, with Rightmove, you can sit and surf every house at your leisure, brilliant.

    As a single female buying, I used to not be taken seriously. they didn't want me to go on the list, they didn't send me out new instructions. I certainly wasn't on their special "hot list" to call as soon as good houses came onto the market. Now one stands a good chance of spotting property for sale at least ... now we just need to wait until it's buying time.

    would politely point out to this poster and to an awful lot of others on this site the `Rightmove` is not the font of all wisdom of things property price wise as private sales listed on the internet but not through estate agents are not on it!

  3. And the money kept rolling out in all directions

    To the poor, to the weak, to the destitute of all complexions

    Now cynics claim a little of the cash has gone astray

    But that's not the point my friends

    When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books

    You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks

    Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way

    Never been a PM loathed as much as Flash Gordon Brown.

    Dur du du du du du du du der du de der

    *DJ comes on flourishing her skirt with a rose in her mouth*

    ¬°Arriba!

    Dur du du du du du du du der du de der

    *Some fancy tango steps*

    Dur du du du du du du du der du de der

    *A slidey type thing with the feet*

    Dur du du du du du du du der du de der

    All together now in chorus!

    When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books

    Sorry, sometimes I just get these musical urges

  4. 4. Of course house sellers haven't been rushing to cut prices. All their hopes and dreams (and even pensions) are tied up in those fantasy asking prices, so you can understand why they've been slow to face up to the inevitable. If you're standing underneath the town hall clock, waiting for the girl of your dreams to meet you for a first date at 8.00pm, you don't immediately rush off if she hasn't shown up by 8.01pm, you wait a bit longer...and then a bit longer still...and after that you wait some more, just to be absolutely sure that she's not coming. But at some point you face facts that you've been dumped. Well, that's happening now, it's 8.35pm and all the fondly imagined excuses, like she missed her bus, are fast evaporating!

    What a great metaphor: one of the best I've seen on this website :lol:

    is it not an `allegory` not a `metaphor`?

  5. so strange how history repeats itself. Remember the thread on here last year about the stories coming out in the papers post bonus round about bankers hiring private islands for their mates, spend, spend, spend...

    It was deja vu, stories just like during the late 80's.

    ditto - when broom cupboards are sold as homes(!) and sell for silly money in Mayfair, the end is in sight -

    I remember the first time round this happened!!
