  1. Most of them are scum All of them are greedy All of them are convinced they're business geniuses The decent ones are rare as rocking horse shit
  2. The guy who sold off all the council housing wants to help prop up builders' profits, what a surprise. If you look at his voting record, he's the exact opposite of a human being.
  3. I don't know why the constant celebration for people losing jobs on here. People being employed isn't pushing up house prices. I'm working and I can't afford a home. It's lax monetary policy that's caused all this, not people buying lego.
  4. As a 'savvy' foreign investor at what point to you get out of the London market? 5% drops? 10% drops? I thought the idea was to use the place to reap the capital gains? If I were looking at the figures, I wouldn't be buying and I'd certainly be considering selling up if I'd had a place for a while.
  5. Except there's already a precedent for this in Scotland. And rents didn't increase as a result.
  6. 21,000 posts...16,000 posts. And yet you still just want to sit around patting each other on the back. The minute anyone says anything you don't agree with you don't reply with anything other than 'you're a VI' How about accepting that some things aren't good news for housing. Brexit for one doesn't look like it's doing any normal people any favours, not if you want any return on your savings to buy somewhere - or if you're looking for a place that some greedy asian import doesn't want to buy and rent back to you.
  7. That seems to be about business. Still lots of the rude idiots rocking up to London to buy up flats with their ill gotten gains.
  8. No, just trying to throw some actual discussion into the echo chamber. Every time there's a political move that's heralded to bring about the HPC, it seems to only stoke prices further. eg. Brexit. Lots of cheering about how isolating us from Europe will bring down house prices. The reality - rampant inflation, a devalued pound and no restrictions on foreign ownership. By all means only listen to what you want to hear. Years of waiting for more affordable housing has made me more critical of the supposed good news I hear on here.
  9. I'm just wondering how this post-Brexit property utopia matches the devalued pound which makes it even easier for foreign currency holders to buy up property here....
  10. Shows how shortsighted government strategy is. They're only ever concerned with winning the next election and staying in power. The county is storing up massive problems in future. An entire generation handing over a huge proportion of their earnings just to get shelter. Little chance to save for the future or invest in a pension. And yet no government will tackle rent levels. Guess they're not bothered about having millions of people with no way to support themselves in old age. Still, as the old are those whose votes they care about, reckon it will be ok.
  11. Borrow more at lower rates. After all it's only 25 years of debt. Insanity.
  12. I'd really like to believe this. I just wish the government would bring in some curbs similar to Vancouver. But the reality is they'll be happy to take every dirty penny of foreign money at the moment. And people who voted Brexit thought it meant LESS foreigners in the UK.
  13. Yea, I'm a paid troll, posting occasionally on here and railing against the rise in house prices. Do yourself a favour and stop living in a bubble where you only believe stuff that positively reinforces your world view.
  14. Buyers like that Hong Kong couple don't care about rents. Rents are just icing on the cake when you're a cash buyer. All they care about is capital appreciation, which is running at double digits in some parts of London. And residency issues haven't stopped the corrupt thieves of the world stashing their money in London before. This ostrich mentality on here really annoys me, the devalued pound with no curbs in foreign buyers was always going to result in this. It's another firesale that shafts first time buyers. I'd like to grab that couple by the scruff of their necks, seize their property and kick them out of the country.
  15. Well a weak pound certainly makes UK property much cheaper for all those foreign investors. Or are we burying our heads in the sand about that and hoping that BoJo the Clown (friend of the foreign tycoons if not foreigners) will put a stop to them coming here to stash their cash. Well that won't happen.
  16. Vote 'Leave' and put a smile on the face of Boris Johnson, Gove and Farage. You can't win really.
  17. For a government that claims to have a deficit to close they don't seem keen on free money. I'd be taxing the hell out of all these offshore owners, they bring nothing to the economy. But then I'm not friends with them or in their pocket like some in power.
  18. The corrupt filth of the world allowed to use London as their money-laundering operation while the people who live and work here struggle to find somewhere to live. Tells you all you need to know about this government that they're doing absolutely nothing about it. We're basically living in a banana republic by proxy.
  19. i see these 'grand designs' houses posted all the time. They have nothing to do with the housing market. They're mostly expensive follies.
  20. Opinion polls are suggesting we'll remain in Europe. What are your predictions for house prices after the doomsaying about Brexit drops? Do you think we'll have a surge in confidence in the market. It doesn't seem to take much these days.
  21. Sell his flat? What sort of advice would that be? He can get some worker in there paying his mortgage. If he sold it, he'd be some kind of one-home owning peasant. He should ideally buy 20 more.
  22. People in the financial services industry must have goldfish memories. I guess they've blanked out the huge crash due to the subprime mortgage market. Or maybe it's just the fact they got free bailout cash and there were no charges against any of the crooks involved.
  23. Yes, you should buy a hundred more. As many as you can. And then when you fail massively and are bailed out by the government we'll all learn a lesson that they don't care about people who work for a living, just those that gamble with debt.
