  1. It's a fair cop guv But I'm no estate agent :angry: To quote the fabulous Wikipedia: "Most online discussion groups are open (especially Usenet) therefore the self-described members have no more right than anyone else to be there. It is tribalistic types (often depraved) who claim that a group is their turf. Unsurprisingly, "troll" very often simply means "newcomer" or a person who says something someone else doesn't like. You can say "the sky is blue" and yet be accused of being a troll" My views on property differ to some on here but it's a discussion board. For discussions.
  2. Very true but it can be a very frustrating wait.
  3. Do you think that it is a little too easy to shout 'TROLL' if you do not agree with the views of others? Show me the twist? Really, really funny.
  4. Opposing views shouldn't really wind you up. Make you think but you should be old enough not to get wound up. Funny, really, really funny
  5. I post as I disagree with many of the points raised and, as this is a discussion board, provide my views for further discussion.
  6. Why? You people really do make my day The original post is sad. Sad beyond belief. Very bitter. Very, very bitter
  7. I dont have a winking arm? I'm on here because I like to post my opinions and disagree totally with the blinkered and unbelievably narrow minded views of many posters. The only reason that many others are on here is to try to confirm to themselves on a daily basis what a terrible world we live in and how black everything is. I have never in my life come accross such a negative bunch. The post was originally started to point out that the much hyped and anticipated crash is not yet with us despite the spin pumped out by this site. So where is it? When will it happen? What % falls will we get? Where? It appears that although you can produce endless economic data to prove this and that, you cannot answer the above basic questions. Also, when and if the crash happens and even in the run up to it, will house sales one day just stop dead and stay that way until everyone decides that prices are back on track? Course they will. Although I can fully understand why many on this site would want prices to drop, what I cannot understand is the negativity, bitterness and presumed superiority of many people who post on here. Dnd, you would'nt pay £80,000 for a house let alone £120,000 now. Fine. But why are YOU here. You will never buy a house, so should have no interest in the market so should not really be interested in this site. Or are you just bored? Or need to boost your self esteem? Keep watching, you really are amusing you mug. Keep up the good work.
  8. But how far behind the 'Trend' are most of the current buyers? Months if not years. Sorry.......
  9. Well done for being working class. So was I BUT, the difference between yow and me is that I do not judge. Where I was brought up is now 95% owner occupier and smart to boot but I still see loads of the older people that helped bring me up.. The area that you are passing judgement on is ex council but not that bad at all. The problem with the UK, and we are not just talking the housing market, is that over the past decade, people have begun thinking they are more than they actually are because thay have a bigger car (on the drip) than their pals and they have a bigger house (on the drip) than their pals. What everyone is forgetting is that cash in pocket, they are not that better off and when the carnival ends and the shit hits the fan, loads will be wearing pampers to stem the flow. Anyway, don't try to tell me where is good and bad in Brum. Bet you were brought up in Tormotontosnopitty
  10. Probably are but 25 years is a long time and if you can grab 'em withgood rates and good terms then you are stoopid if you chose otherwise
  11. Cheap as chips here. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-918...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy
  12. Maybe, but both used money, of differing amounts, to enjoy their boating freedom. I would be the first to agree that the absolute best things in life really are free, but unless you plan to go right back to basics and run your own totally self sufficien smallholding (an idea which I have toyed with for 2 or three years), money does unfortunately play a rather large part of life in 2006. You live on one side of the city and you freind lives on the other 10 miles away. You want to visit. Having £1.10 for the rturn bus fare gives you the freedom to visit them when you wish. Sure, you could walk but you wouldn't really want the 5 hour round trip if you had a choice.
  13. My oh my oh my. You lot are a lot, lot sadder than I had ever dreamed. No wonder you miss opportunities.
  14. Si esperara un desplome del precio de casa que no me estaría sentando en Inglaterra fría, estaría esperando en España asoleada. Y hay más limones disponibles aspirar
  15. You lot really are set in your ways and blinkered. Money is money is freedom whichever way you look at it or whichever way you make it. Keep up the good work.
  16. £2000 on each weekly advised buy and held for 3 months then sold. Has anyone done the maths. Would you be ahead?
  17. But, just as in the UK, I bet there a many people still making a profit from buying and selling Spanish property, and many savvy owner occupiers still picking up bargains. And they're in the sun. Gits!
  18. Oooohhh. Sour grapes. At least one of you have admitted that: "people do still seem to be making money buying and selling" So this exact point in history, 10.43pm 30th March 2006, wil be a time that I never, ever forget. Thank you so much. You don't know how much this means to me.
  19. Know Birmingham well do you. On council estates eh? Property 1 - rough area and council estate - WRONG Property 2 - rough area and council estate - WRONG Property 3 - rough area and council estate - WRONG Property 4 - rough area and council estate - WRONG Property 5 - rough area and council estate - WRONG Keep up the good work.
