  1. I do get what is happening. It's madness. So does it end up 1% because more expensive houses are coming down and the previously less expensive (but still ridiculously priced) properties are going up but one is cancelling the other out? Clearly properties that we look for in the south are more out of our reach now than they were a year ago and by more than 1% or 4% .
  2. We have been searching Somerset/ Dorset /Wiltshire /Wales . We sold our property last year to have a property built in Wales but this has dragged on and on so we have been searching around for anything comparable to the property we just sold and what we thought we were going to buy! It's all been pretty depressing really ! We don't have a spare £20,000 - £30,000 to add to what we sold our property for. Last year there were quite a few properties around that we liked in the £200,000 - £220,000 range, this year it feels like EAs just put an additional £30,000 on just to see if there
  3. All the houses in the areas I look in are up £30,000 - £40,000 from last years prices (houses that were 200,000 - 210,000). Is this because agents tend to price properties based on what other agents have them on for? Unfortunately they are still selling despite the mad mark up from a year ago, but it's going to take quite a while isn't it to get them back to last summer's prices yes?
  4. It was an eye opener for me (obviously not for you) because it presented to me all sorts of information I have never heard about before. Whilst of course I know that vaccines have side effects I didn't realise to what extent neither did I realise that there are serious side effects to the flu vaccine. As you say, it is Q of weighing up the risk/deaths against the deaths averted and then surely it is a Q of being honest about the risks and honest about the deaths.
  5. This one was quite an eye opener for me: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/johns-hopkins-scientist-medical-certainty-pfizer-vaccine-caused-death-florida-doctor/?utm_source=salsa&eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=57eef2b2-9ee8-4602-82c1-2c6d5ba80290&fbclid=IwAR3DXPeBTS6dFfFXPuIx3DsxpMZ5-xNNYZo6GG9KXcb3IzKONNVpg8TaNfQ
  6. It's a difficult one isn't it because currently people are adding £30,000 to £40,000 (to £200,000 to £220,000 properties last year ) and as estate agents value properties based on what other houses are on for then suddenly all the £200,000 - £220,000 properties have gone up £30,000 to £40,000 more in a year. So what at the mortgage companies doing, just accepting that properties have gone up 15% in a year ? So when prices start to come down they have to come down how much to just be back at the price they were a year ago? Thing is quite a few properties that were on last year (that weren
  7. That's very kind of you but it's quite OK it's my issues trying to keep up with stuff whilst being pretty clueless.
  8. Gosh I had forgotten what it can feel like sometimes on this website when I end up feeling like I have been called up in front of the headmaster! I struggle with this stuff so I have no idea if this will happen but this is what I read: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/uk-lockdown-tighten-days-curbs-23308820 The Government is reportedly considering closing outdoor markets, estate agents, click-and-collect services and temporarily banning home moves in a bid to bring coronavirus rates under control
  9. And interest rates were what in 1988? Do you think if the government does close down the whole market (which they talking about doing to include stopping anyone moving even if they are in the process of completing) they will then extend the SD holiday so when things open up again there will be another bounce back due to pent up demand? Aren't we all waiting for the roaring 20s if the vaccine stops lockdowns?
  10. I would have thought that closing down the whole housing market (to include this time sales in the process of completing which were allowed last time ) will not only see the SD holiday extended but yet more pent up demand when the market reopens with an extended SD holiday. From what I understand (which isn't much) it's not like the government wouldn't have been happy to extend the SD holiday it would have just looked bad, but the market shutting down would be a perfect way to get around extending the SD holiday . Whatever, I can see this bouncing the market yet again when England finally
  11. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/uk-lockdown-tighten-days-curbs-23308820 So that's it I guess 10% increase in HP in 2021 due to pent up demand after EAs are locked down and the extension of SD as the market can't really be locked down and then SD removed in March. Even during the last lockdown sales that were happening were allowed to complete, if moving home is banned completely can you imagine the legal nightmare re contracts! Oh joy!
  12. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/dame-joan-bakewell-threatens-government-131640153.html Dame Joan Bakewell threatens Government with legal action over second Pfizer jab
  13. How interesting though the reactions from the placebo I find that fascinating. As for mix n match, well what can I say!
  14. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/exclusive-gp-surgeries-offered-1-173509865.html It copied this with big font can't work out how to make it smaller Exclusive: GP surgeries offered £1,000 to cancel second dose Covid jab appointments in roll-out chaos
  15. I note the article doesn't say if they had the 2 does 21 days apart. Reporters really do need to get on top of this. Pointless saying 2.3m people vaccinated without saying if that means 2.3m fully vaccinated or 2.3m with maybe 50-60% immunity waiting for 3 months for 2nd dose.
