  1. Yeah, this is the new paradigm that we are in. Stock market crashing? Interest rates on the rise? Move to property as an investment? Nah!
  2. I would imagine Lidl and Aldi would do well. Poundstretcher and the like should be ok too. Saying that, I do mean that they certainly won't have to shut down. They may have to let people go aswell.
  3. *knocks on karen1000s head* 'Mcfly, Mcfly ......is there anybody there ..Mcfly?'
  4. thank god the light is allowed to permeate into the room
  5. Sorry, I think you are missing the point. There are many frugal people on this board who don't like the thought of throwing money away when it can be avoided in a few years time. £40 isn't a paltry amount, neither did anyone say it was the difference between affording a house or not, £40 saved a week or into a pension can only be a good thing.
  6. The council housing stock is far lower than it was. I have no 'aspirations' to buy, but if I want a decent enough house then I must. As a married woman who is pregnant I am neither a drug addict, mentally ill, disabled or a single mother. All these people are above us in the pecking order if we want to live in a council house, allowing us to live the way we want - mum looking after kids full time until they go to school.
  7. Unseasonal spring weather? People repulsed by the thought of Prescott having sex and stayed in bed? They are all flippin skint?
  8. Cupar has a major NIMBY campaign at the moment over the proposal of thousands of affordable new homes being built in the area. C.A.R.D. Cupar Against Rural Development I understand in some ways but overall Fife is too expensive regarding wages (what's new int the UK). Younger people need help with this issue if they are not drug addicts, seriously mentally ill, disabled or are teenage mothers. They just have ordinary jobs.
  9. Asda? If I go round after 1830 will I get a half price 'Whoops' house?
  10. It was good stuff. The mum said she was glad to help out but her daughter was reticent about the situation. Daughter is justifably psst off with hpi. It was on telly. On the BBC.
  11. Thought it would be the same old spin... Newsreader told us that with houses increasing, ftb only chance is if parents help out their kids. Then there was an interview with a ftb who told us of her fustration and anger at not being able to get on the ladder without help. Some guy gave us a plastic pyramid demo. showing how it had changed and that parents and btl are now propping up the most crucial stage- the bottom. Some other guy (sorry in bed with cold, mabye and estate agent) added that if was unfair that only ftb with rich parents are getting a foot on the ladder. Newsreader said 'unless prices come down' situation would get worse (to that effect)
  12. You were very lucky in your investments to have been in that position to buy in 1999. A 700k house when you were 23/24 - seriously, well done. Munimula is showing us more how the average joe has been shafted by hpi.
  13. I find this site very interesting and have been following since last summer. At no time did I come to the conclusion that if a crash, correction whatever hadn't happened by x month 2006 then it would all be over. Since joining I have had an, ahem, crash course in property economics, I certainly feel more informed than before. So, I have to say I am mystified by some of the reactions here to what clearly is the spring bounce that many have predicted moons ago. What is all the fuss about? Also, historically speaking, this is the mother of all bubbles so it is going to take far longer to play out.
  14. Yes, you have much disdain for this website. It's a wonder why you even bother posting!
