The STR are whingeing and moaning about high house prices but they did not whinge and moan about high house prices when they were taking advantage of the property boom and selling their property at a high price. There is a strong whiff of hypocrisy from the STRs who say that house prices are too high and yet they were quite happy to sell their property at a high price when it suited their interests and as soon as they sold their property they start to complain that property prices are too high. The STRs are just two-faced hypocrites who would at one moment talk the property market up when they are trying to sell a property at a high price and make a significant profit and the next moment are quite prepared to talk down the property market soon after they sold their property when they want to get back onto the property ladder. The STRs want to have it both ways, they want house prices to be high when they are selling a property and they want house prices to be low when they are trying to buy a property. Since the STRs were quite happy to exploit the property boom and sell their property at a ridiculously high price, knowing full well that the property was way over priced and that the buyer was being ripped off, then the STRs have no right to complain about high property prices because they are so keen to get back onto the property ladder when they were quite prepared to sell their property for a high price. Some STRs even have the bare faced cheek to write to their MPs (Members of Parliament) to complain about high house prices when they were quite happy to take full advantage of high house prices by selling their property for a ridiculously high price, knowing full well that the property was way over priced to some poor over-stretched gullible and niave buyer. The STRs who have been writing to their MPs complaining about high property prices did not complain to their MPs about high house prices before they sold their property for a high price but only complained after they sold their property which is dishonest and totally disreputable and despicable. Since the STRs sold their property for a high price then it only makes sense that the STRs should themselves be made to pay a high price for property if they want to get back onto the property ladder. Although the STRs were quite happy to sell their property for a high price they are reluctant themselves to pay a high price for property and want a property crash to happen that causes propery prices to fall significantly so that they can then buy a property on the cheap. The STRs are totally immoral and unethical and have no pangs of conscious or misgivings in having made alot of money at someone elses expense in selling their property at a high price, knowing full well that the property was way over priced, to some poor over-stretched niave and gullible buyer who was ripped off for paying too much for the property. The STRs now want to make more money by waiting for a property crash to occur that brings down house prices so that the STR can then put in derisory low and cheeky offers that are way below fair value for property belonging to a distressed home-owner who is in a weak position and is forced to sell their property at a low price because they cannot keep up with their mortgage payments and are struggling to sell their property at a time when there are few buyers around. The STRs want to buy a property at a low price by taking advantage of the plight and distress of home-owners during a crash and offering a low price for a property at a time when the STRs find themselves in a strong position in a buyers market to put in a low offer when there is little demand for property during a recession just so that the STRs can then sell the property at a much higher price and make a significant profit at the someone elses expense in the next property boom by selling the property at a ridiculous price that is way over-valued to some poor over-stretched, niave and gullible buyer who is being ripped off.
