  1. Not surprised. I always wonder if these companies do any price testing at all. It used to cost £7 for a potato with two toppings from the one near me. You have to think they'd sell a whole lot more doing them at £3.50, yeah the margins wouldn't be as high but people might actually go!
  2. If I was foolish enough to be buying a house from Persimmon, after last nights dispatches I would be cancelling. Then again I'm not that foolish to begin with.
  3. Has Labour's policy actually changed? It seems to be the same as before. Maybe even murkier.
  4. 100% mortgage where you own 80% of the house, ******ing genius!
  5. Joint household income of £60K+ with £100k down and you can't afford a 3 bed semi in sale anymore. The system is definitely working! Urmston has just become the latest place were its semi affordable and semi nice, so of course it has now just become unaffordable.
  6. If anyone believes Boris will actually run, they're foolish. He'll want nothing to do with sorting this mess out, likewise Farage. Its a lot easier to shout from the back, without ever having to do anything.
  7. I wonder if anyone involved in the running and ownership of Debenhams actually shops there. The stores are just tat, and brands that you associate with outlet malls; that no one in the right mind would pay full price for. The one at the trafford centre is enormous, and empty. It's a strange experience to even go.
  8. 50k off to buy next door! (Both still massively overpriced!) https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-77523767.html https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-64993009.html
  9. Looks like this one has been on the market for a while, and will do for a while longer I expect https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-77523767.html Doesn't exactly help when your neighbour has been on the market for 9 months and already knocked £40k off the asking price! https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-64993009.html WTF are these people thinking, even in Sale these prices are utter madness. These are on a main road, next to a loony bin and Northern Moor!
  10. Do these social houses maintain themselves now? How many people in social houses truly look after them? In a row of terraces you can normally spot the social tenant before even stepping inside.
  11. The house didn't even need doing up, some paint to taste and a bit of laminate is now worth £450k! It's amazing homebase went out of business with costs like that
  12. Posted this one in the NW thread, but worth putting in here as I think it has a lot further to drop https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-57483390.html 24/10 300k 08/11 OIEO 290k 23/11 OIEO 275k Some movement in less than one month! Looks like some new carpets and some letters on the wall from B&M don't quite constitute a £120k price increase in one of the most depraved areas of the north west.
  13. An idea brought to you by people who have never heard of factory workers, call centre workers, delivery drivers, etc.
  14. I've recently had my first at 31 and can see why a lot of people don't / put it off. - Houses prices are sky high - If you went to uni, and contribute to your pension you give away half your salary each month, only to live in a house in a rough area next to someone who doesn't give a ******. - You have to move to work / live, you lose that family support. Oh well, at least the government gives me back £15~ per week of the £900 I give them. It's a great trade.
  15. Another great one, in Wigan certainly added £125k to it with a few new carpets and a luck of paint. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-57483390.html
  16. I think Sale has just gone tbh, a lot of the area is not that desirable (including where I live) and the prices are just completely unjustifiable. Looking at 3 beds and the results are just total nonsense. Minging 3 bed (ex council?) semi, no where near the tram, OIEO 300k please! https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-65201062.html
  17. Sale, specifically Sale Moor still continues to be absolutely mental. In a small drawn area I have on rightmove it is showing 26 properties for sale, but 68 if you include STC. Even areas around and behind the high school are selling quickly at ridiculously high prices. Mad!
  18. What on earth is going on for Sale at the moment? The prices are utterly ridiculous, even in the less desirable parts around the sale moor/wythenshawe border. Small 2 beds, are being listed at £200k+. Who is paying this?
