  1. From zero? Wow! So, exactly who is in charge here?
  2. Does anyone know of, or can someone start a housing blog where the contrarians, in this case, the bulls, can be weeded out? Does freedom of association still exist in England? (Or did it ever?) Thanks in advance. It's David Suskind! (Isn't it?)
  3. Dow Jones Industrial Average = 10,726.41 according to BBC. Going down, going down now... (Led Zeppelin) Wow! So glad I didn't invest as I was thinking of doing in early spring. But then, maybe now is a good time to buy?
  4. Wow! 10,750! This is getting serious, Mr. Bear! BTW, love your posts. Lots or tears all around.
  5. Mysteriously absent from this board are links to alternate discussion boards, which should give one pause. Has anyone els noticed this lack of FREEDOM? If not, surely there should be some interesting blogs in England about the housing situation. That being said, I fully expect to be banned outright. Anyone out there?
  6. Afraid, eh? Not surprising from the like of you all! Such a pansy wedsite these days, I say! Not to ruffle any feathers, now shall we? What ever happened to "Freedom of Association" ?
  7. For interesting reading about what's presently happening in my country, you may be interested in "thehousingbubbleblogdotcom".
  8. Actually, I doubt that very much. England is a very desireable place to live and will remain so into the far future. Sort of like California. It may be taken another peg or two down, but nonetheless...
  9. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1644430/posts I thought this link might be interesting. Something about the English being afraid to fly their flag.
  10. Or something in between? We don't know what will happen, of course, but a fairly large change seems to be on the horizon.
  11. http://thehousingbubbleblog.com/?p=98#comments We really should communicate cross-ocean, not that i'd want to do it But there is stagnation going on, much like the UK in the past few years. I do wonder what will happen. Any thoughts? Any attraction to Ben's blog?
  12. Because the total population of Japan is declining, as they don't allow much immigration. Supply and demand.
  13. This is an interesting read, too, but in a different way: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=13...832660163127923

  15. When the routine bites hard and ambitions are low And the resentment rides high but emotions won't grow And we're changing our ways, taking different roads Then love, love will tear us apart again Why is the bedroom so cold Turned away on your side? Is my timing that flawed, our respect run so dry? Yet there's still this appeal That we've kept through our lives Love, love will tear us apart again Do you cry out in your sleep All my failings exposed Get a taste in my mouth As desperation takes hold Is it something so good Just can't function no more? When love, love will tear us apart again Joy Division, isn't it? Bravo!
  16. We decided to rent for a while , but only in order to be "chainless"when we decided to buy. Coordinating two deals can be extremely frustrating, as many well know. After we sold, I found this site and "www.thehousingbubble2.blogspot.com", but I don't remember how or when. It must have been sometime in the early spring. Now that we're enjoying the pleasures of renting, I will only reluctantly buy again. We couldn't care less about granite countertops! BTW, how does one get one's comment ├Âut of the box? Help! I'm trapped!
  17. It's impossible to compete with "slave"labor. Not sure if the Quotation marks are necessary or not.
  18. I agree. Therefore, it's probably a good idea to play the numbers game. Submit silly offers to 100 houses. Chances are, one out of 100 will accept. You can't know until you try. As for myself, I will not begin this particular process untill the downslide actually begins here in the US. If I were you and I really wanted to buy in the UK, I would be out there offering lowball prices every day. Of course. I am happily renting at a bargain, so I have NO incentive to waste my time even offering silly prices on real estate bought in the middle of an unsustainable credit bubble. No incentive whatsoever. Meanwhile, the bank pays ME.
