  1. ive viewed 30 homes in cornwall for rent in the last month and 100% of them are hosues that wont sell...........its very messy.50% of estate agents have lied to me and told me they werent for sale and every house still had the 4 sale board in the garden , behind bushes , behind walls....or whats best - the for rent photos on right move have the for sale sign in )))) Estate agents seem to be losing all rationality .Very odd ..
  2. dont you people find this depressing and worrying though ? where does it end ? the worlds gone f....mad
  3. cornwalls apparantly getting like this but thats according to estate agents i know who say they get as many people to look and make an offer and then they tell them all they need to bid higher as one person already has............nice humans and they then work it until they get a nice higher offer. So thats the business now......Take a family with anxiety trying to find a home and probably in debt as most normal people in the uk are and then squeeze them more and get them competing with other families.Just want you think estate agents couldnt get any lower down the food chain they do.

    Buy To Let

    >I personally don't get the 2 house thing but thats me >I don't think they earn enough to get a repayment on the BTL as it is IO and about 90% me neither , i hate the idea i would be using other people to buy my home but i know a few buy to let couples and they are a certain breed , obsessed with status and how big their car is and alot of its being able to say ' we have tenants ' and ' 2 houses ' or more. Personally i see buy to let as the cancer in the uk and also one of most socially destructive aspects of the country.I think it was buy to let that killed the future of millions
  5. So in essence whats happening is Quantative is being used to protect house prices and lower the value of currency so empowering assets more for those with assets ? my question is where does this end ? with a crash or a sustained con act forever ? or a slow meltdown and ease back into reality ? And my final question regarding the above , so money is 100% better in assets now of pretty much any kind that retains value ? Whats the final outcome of all this ?
  6. Can anyone define what Capitalism is in essence ? Where does Mammon fit in ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammon are we areally all living in hell ?
  7. In cornwall where i am based it seems theres such a need for houses to rent that estate agents have taken to getting as many applicants as they can and then asking for people to offer over the asking rental in like an auction style way. Personally i find that very disturbing , i guess it comes down to how to how you view humans , families , houses or homes and what morals as a business you have. Do you sqeeze already tight families , people with depression and anxiety over finding homes more , work them off each other , do you focus 100% on business profit and just inflating rentals or do y
  8. ok so at what point do people see the pack of cards collapsing ? Greece will default ? it seems most sensible economists say this is 100% guaranteed ? I read this will lead to a major stock market crash again like 2008 which will then put us back where we were only with massive quantative debt this will lead to a further crashing I guess the hope is to get the olympics out of the way first ?
  9. Personally i question the quantative easing process and i am always thinking maybe these people fiddling the books have some way we dont know about to just offset and rebalance behind closes doors. I just wonder if whats going on here isnt a Total change of economic rules , some form of equation that makes no sense to anyone but allows ' quantative easing ' but does not effect or devalue so much ? i know thats like not suppose to be possible but i wonder.I personally think they are upto something we dont see here . I got that feeling when brown called in all the worlds leaders in 2008 for

    Bedroom Tax

    yeah me to. Bedroom tax ? I did wonder that but thats what Ian duncan smith has called it . I wonder why ? were going to tax you from money we give you but were going to do that by not giving it to you ? so thats a rent cut then ? Bedroom tax cuts ? In the end your either in the club or not i guess. I am just surprised there is not much more mention of this as i feel its going to sink the buy to let ship big time and also create waves into housing and also probably force more people into debt , up rent arrears , force down rents or make homes empty. Happy days ! thats all positive . I
  11. Hi can anyone outline the new bedroom tax , when it comes into effect ? I saw an article that suggested that on a £97 a week rent if you home has one bedroom that the council deel you dont need they will remove £11 from each weeks benefit ? so your £40 or so down from your benefit as you have 2 many rooms ?thats on top of already changing how fair rents are worked out ? from median to some other slimey system that saves everyone but costs those on benefits ? So they have 1. / capped rent allowances 2. / will be then removing more allowance if you have more rooms than you ' need ' 3 .
  12. Estate agents are the ROOT OF ALL EVIL where all this goes/ They are public enemy no 1. I saw places that are on the market 6 monts now and still no tenants. Were in a situation where ' The child ' - the estate agent has a piece of birthday cake and wont share it , he wont lower his expectations and GREEDS his master and money and the mentality i hear from estate agents when i ask them is ' well if we cant rent at that price then it will just saty on the market until it does. They also state that ' in the end people have to live somewhere and we control pricing on the majority of local
  13. I wanted to post as i read some info about the bedroom tax and various other issues we all seem to be confronted with. I claim housing benefit , work fulltime ! still i am in debt...still cant afford to live. I feel most days like i cant go on like this. Whats going on ? I feel the people at the bottom of the scrap heap are being used in order to correct issues which should be correct from top down. So we have housing huge benefits issues in this nation due to price of rents inflated by unregulated estateb agents and greedy humans and also by banks and lending , second home mentality an
