  5. Hi everyone its been a while since i last posted on this site, my last post was about a friend who was selling his 3 bed terr in waltham abbey for 200 grand,and i was saying you wont sell it mate guess what 4 months ago it sold for the asking price. So i have just mugged myself again another mate of mine had his 2 bed flat(ex council)in central london on the market for 270 grand,oh dear guess what it sold for the asking price,now my friends i know jack shit about all of this except what i read on this site and i visit the site every day for a read,so i am begining to believe we might have got
  6. Hi everyone, i haven't posted for a while but always visit the site,the last post i done was about my friends house in Waltham abbey about six months ago, he had it up for sale for 200 hundred grand and within six weeks it sold for the asking price,another friend has put his two bed ex council flat up for sale in the clerkenwell area in London for 270 grand, he had loads of intrest and has just sold for the asking price,so it seems as people are still buying property no matter what, maybe it is different this time and we are wrong about the crash. I like most people have been waiting for this
  7. Hi everyone thanks for your replies, i am hanging on and it seems like its going to last forever just needed some reassurance.
  8. Hi everyone, i have been on this site quite often for a few years, and still no crash is it going to be different this time as the BOE have control over intrest rates,when i speak to people they still think we are mad saying there is going to be a crash,i am a bit red faced as my mate has just sold his house in waltham abbey for 200 grand,thats what he had it up for and a ftb bought it,whats stopping this from happening the boom has happened but no bust is it different this time?
  9. Hi everyone you have no chance of a council flat, most people who own there own propertys have never give there council flats back they keep them and rent them out or they exchange them for places which are worse than theres and charge money for the exchange.Please dont think i am hood winkiing you i know alot of people that do this or who have done this, it helps them pay there mortgage. This is another problem when everything is so expensive people find ways around the situation which in this case is the price of housing.You get all these people with there opinions and there news and there g
  10. Hi i posted a few months ago that a friend of mine had just put house on the market in waltham abbey 200k, shock horror it sold for the asking price ftb bought it . Dont make any sense ftb still paying top dollar for it is it ever gonna crash, Its like watching paint dry, are we the blind leading the blind.I told my friend if he thought it was going to sell he was on drugs lol looks i need to get some of them drugs!
  11. Hi everyone i thought that EA's arranged the price of your property,but they are saying that the homeowners are being greedy well that means they will never come down.Sorry to sound so negative but it seems to be taken age's to see some good drops in price's
  12. Hi i have two friends both girls lol lucky me,both gone bankrupt in the last month owing 12/15 grand on credit cards
  13. Hi it seems when you read the news that things in the housing market are slowing down,but when i bring the subject up in the taxi people say they wont drop the price.I have friends who are selling at the moment there house has been on the market for five months and they still wont drop the price it seems to be the trend.Does there have to be a big change in the economy to start this HPC, i am not that clued up on the last crash only from what you lads say but there isn't the downturn in the economy as what there was last time and most companies seem to be doing ok the taxi trade is ticking alo

Hi my friend has got a two bedroom flat in epping essex,six months ago it was worth 185,000 its just gone on the market at 205,000,are we all getting it wrong,thats my second friend in the last month who's property has gone on the market for more money.People must still be buying they have both got people viewing,i am confused is the drop in prices ever gonna happen?

  18. Hi my friend has just put his house back on the market,it was up for sale 9 months ago for 200,000 its just been valued at 210,000 dont make sense its going up i thought they were coming down?
  19. Some of the ads say lowest amount of unemployed for years, but highest amount of people claiming sick benefit and incapacity benefit ever,lol they just move them around.The ad should say Charlie brown and puppet blair can fudge a figure!
  20. Hi this article and others still blame IR rises but it is still lower than it use to be.what will happen if it goes back between 6/7%.Dont bear thinking about does it. http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/news/article...._page_id=2&ct=5
  21. Sorry dont know much about how the economy works ,so many different contributes,but i keep a eye on the ftse and it keeps going up can someone explain to me why when things are not looking good?
  22. Went to see the accountant today he explained that my tax had gone up,"WHAT"i said my earnings was less last year, i was off for six weeks with a broken bone,he said its more stealth tax if you have children they have stoped any allowance.Tax is 22% and national insurance is 8% so its 30% of what you earn also i was on incapacity benefit for six weeks which they gave me 1,160 pounds to live on with five kids lol, anyway they want 300 pound of that back in tax so he tells me,sorry just a moan peed off lol.
  23. What a joke,when will they tell the truth? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4134041.stm
