  1. We should count ourselves lucky that the great property owners of Great Britain are even willing to put their houses on the market for us to buy. How dare you have an opinion about its value. Remember you know nothing - a property is worth what the vendor thinks it's worth. Be told and know your place - we will not tolerate dissention in the lower ranks. (P.S. Love your forum name - Excel is great, I truly adore spreadsheets too - I now hope you weren't being ironic)
  2. Even though it is -2 degrees outside and snowing, I have decided to camp outside the EA's, just to make sure I beat the crowds. I've sent my wife, child and the grand parents out to cover other EAs - it's crazy just crazy.
  3. Hello xxxxxx, I appreciate that you have a job to do but please refrain from such comments as: "The market is going crazy" and shouting: "DON'T MISS OUT, BE THE FIRST TO VIEW!" Both my wife and I are 42 years old, we have waited a long time to buy a house and saved very hard. We don't need the hype and most certainly do not respond well to people trying to rush us. We need to work together, you would like the sale and we would like the right house for us. Please don't be upset by this message, I just need to make sure we understand each other. To save your time and ours, please only send property specifications that match our stated requirements (minimum 2 double bed, semi detached or detached, large garden, off-road parking). Kind regards xxxxxx ----- Original Message ----- From: xxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, January 23, 2013 3:16 PM Subject: BRAND NEW INSTRUCTIONS!!! Good Afternoon, Please find attached a variety of properties new to our market. The market is going crazy, we've sold just under 20 houses this month so far with 200 viewings booked. DON'T MISS OUT, BE THE FIRST TO VIEW! Please call xxxxx xxxxxx to arrange a viewing or to find out more information on these properties. Kind Regards, xxxxxx Sales Administrator They say you should be friends with the estate agents to ensure you get the best property specs sent to you as soon as they come onto the market - I might have blown it in this instance.
  4. The whole Fiscal Cliff charade was like a badly scripted and shallow plotted SyFy channel movie. The ending was plain to see from the opening scenes – there was never going to be a 'no-deal' situation, just a lot of political rhetoric. Edit: Happy New Year...
  5. Really good observation that just goes to show the perverse nature of the markets and the effects of removing accountability. This goes hand-in-hand with Mr King's admission that the richest percentage of the country have significantly benefitted from the measures taken to save the economy. It leaves me thinking that an 'Emperor's New Clothes' moment / Black Swan event is around the corner – but of course no one will see it coming. The markets will only drop when they are made to do so - the market will be pumped - indirectly converting and extracting stimulus measures into the pockets of the rich. I know this sounds dramatic but the country has lost its appetite for any reporting on the economy , the BBC seems to have been gagged since Christmas (god bless the Jubilee and Olympics), and there is an opportunity to really milk the system before it turns sour.
  6. I think my signature block says it all - Recovery would be a return to prudent lending (almost a decade overdue).
  7. Just taken all my savings out of Santander and put it in the Coventry BS. Not an insignificant sum of money - I feel much better already.
  8. True but it might just be a case of playing things down so that the props aren't removed. It's like a drunk saying I really don't have a drink problem, prior to asking you for some spare change.
  9. I'd love to see this played on BBC1 and ITV at prime time every day for week. It's simple enough to get the point across (yes we could all change it to cover something differently / better) but it's good enough. Once it hits the UK properly - then they can consider it a successful ad.
  10. The system will be worked such that the people pay for the losses. People don't go to war they just pay inflated prices, accept tax cuts and low interest rates on their debts. Seems to me that the bail outs are there to make sure the 'investors' get a / some return before the end-game is called and we pick up the pieces (the investors have exited stage right just previously).
  11. Yep - and when / if we get back to 2% the media will sell it as the best thing since sliced bread and completely overlook the fact that high inflation previously suffered is 'locked in'. So when things continue to rise at 2% (assuming this magical target can be sustained) the 2% will be based on a far higher unit cost - which will completely be over the heads of most people. Still when we reach 2% all will be well - and we will be able to get back to normal - won't we?
  12. Again I agree that you are technically correct - I'm not moaning because of the 'wrong' choices I have or have not made. I am angry over the constant changing of the goal posts, that have repeatedly gone against the more risk-adverse members of the UK. As for the right to be able to buy an affordable house, again you're correct it's not a right. However, if we accept that both mum and dad need to work every hour they can to pay the mortgage - best we don't complain when their children start to go off the rails. I'm really just saying that there used to be a common sense balence and right now (and for some time previously) the odds are stacked against many of us. We shouldn't need to be financial gurus and understand the complexities of bond markets and gold prices in order to protect ourselves from 'the system'.
  13. True for the last bit but ... "If the dealer is rigging the game and ensures his pals always gets the best hands you are sunk before it starts.Those who think the current game is crooked are not moaners but realists" ... says it all for me
