  1. I think its near £150 million yet sammy said he had no money to relocate 5,000 civil service jobs to the west of Northern Ireland

  4. Based on the lastest UoU report they report the housing market has probably bottomed out. And this has happened because of a 2% rise!!! Are they basing the "recovery" on the east of the country? No mention on the tv or teletext of..... You cannot say that housing is on the up when the UoU report is based on a tiny fraction of sales and the lack of FTB returning to the market. And there was me thinking we are still in recession, still have a huge debt to pay back, still under the influence of certain governemnt 'financial steroids' and have an 'economy' based on the public sector which is going to see massive public spending cuts after the next election. I was shocked to listen to one of the authors of the report on the radio yesterday and even more shocked that the media think a 2% rise means everything in the garden is rosey
  5. Just about to post that link. Those expecting 2007 prices (or close to it) need to wake up!

  7. OK house prices have been rising slightly but tell me, what happens when the economy stops taking its 'financial steroids'?
  8. Seems i was right. 400 jobs planned for Belfast. Now theres a surprise. And on another note - how come sammy wilson can just dismiss a report that came to the conclusion that 5,000 civil service jobs should be relocated from Belfast to the North West of Northern Ireland in order to address the economic imbalance which exists?
  9. That may well be true but its no excuse to overlook the rest of NI. Its about time the politcians and dare i say it "Invest NI" got their fingers out and realised the world doesn't revolve around Belfast. Take the Kevlin project earmarked for NI's second biggest city. A certain Enterprise Minister then decides to move it to Coleraine and when the people of Derry/Londonderry/Doire/Maiden City dare speak out Arlene Foster criticises them! I see the same city has come top again of NI jobless
  10. I would like to ask the Belfast posters (or those in the east of NI) if they know that the North and West of Northern Ireland is lacking serious investment and always has. I mean is it widely known? What do they think about it? Is it swept under the carpet? Its never a surprise wehn i read the North-West tops the monthly unemployment figures When i visit Belfast on the odd occasion its like a whole different world. Why is Belfast favoured over other areas? It just about sums up the executive that when a major report into civil service jobs reports that at least 5,000 jobs should be relocated from Belfast so that it may help the economic balance of NI, the Finance minister dimisses it. No consultation. Nothing! Is the lack of investment in the North and West polictical? I held out no hope for the North and West on seeing Hilary Clinton on her visit to Belfast talk about certain economic investment in NI. I for one know where it will end up. OK thats my rant over
  11. Imagine missing a thread with 70+ replies http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=126893
  12. What does this mean for NI? Its from the Daily Mail by the way http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12...l#ixzz0SWtfIyQc Britain's biggest bank claims the housing crash is over and has promised to lend an extra £500 million to people applying for 90per cent home loans. The pledge from HSBC is expected to end a two-year log-jam on this type of high loan to value mortgage. The decision is seen as evidence that the UK's biggest mortgage lender is confident that house prices will not fall any further. Rivals, such as the Lloyds group, which includes Halifax, are expected to respond by increasing the amount of mortgage lending and high value loans they offer. Head of mortgages at the bank, Martijn van der Heijden, said there is a new optimism among buyers that house prices will not fall any further. He said: 'We committed £15 billion to mortgage lending in 2009 – double our 2007 lending – and £1bn of this was made available exclusively to home buyers with deposits of just 10per cent. 'Demand has been very strong and we have reached this target, so we are now committing another £500 million to this vital segment of the market
  13. £97,303 i'd be over the moon!!!!! Whats the chances though?
  14. As a FTB i choose 20-30% Thats what i hope happens anyway! (hopefully even futher)
  15. http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=MVEPNC0282
  16. Exactly. Stormont is being run by a bunch of clowns. Now wonder i never bother voting.
  17. Maybe the reason they cant find buyers is becasue they are asking too much!
