  1. Couldn’t read past their patronising headline - “Home buyers who 'keep their nerve while others hesitate' offered an opportunity” I guess the content of the article is about how I should go and buy now, rather than wait for further falls. Good news all the same.
  2. That bit made me chuckle - "best practice in house price determination"
  3. WOW.....anything but admit house prices are falling, that would be a disaster.
  4. So Mr Javid just brought the housing market to a grinding halt....anyone thinking of buying will simply hold off until the budget. Interesting to see what will happen to ongoing sales, buyers demanding last minute discounts to offset the potential changes? Sellers offering discounts to make sure sales go through?
  5. That they're even considering an exrension is stupidity beyond reason and tells you everything you need to know about TPTB and their "priorities". Debt is the future, debt is everything, everybody should have some more. Why I bother saving and paying off my credit card monthly I have no idea.
  6. Indeed. With ridiculously low inventory and low sales volumes this should be a sellers market (scarce commodity/resource). Given prices are rolling over in this situation, as soon as a few forced sellers start to rear up, things will only gather pace and in only one direction - down. The clever bastards near me holding off selling because of EA's and the VI's perpetuation of the "Brexit Uncertainty" bull, will find to their cost when they all stick their homes on the market at the same time. I know of at least 2 down the pub, holding off selling while riding out this "lull" - as soon as Brexit is done they're going to take advantage of the Brexit boost and sell up....ok so a sudden influx of properties will drive prices up, ok....yes I see.
  7. Got to love their optimism. Another way to spin it could be - house prices fall in most areas OR London house prices display significant losses. Before anyone says anything - i know this is asking prices
  8. Is this the boss of one of the largest house builders in the UK admitting there's a house price bubble? I'd love to see prices pop just to see these arseholes suffer. However in my heart I know even if there is a crash, he's made for life, the only people who will suffer are the ordinary workers who bust a gut for Taylor Wimpey, just to keep a roof over their own heads today. Depressing times.
  9. Yes. As @crazypabs points out, their attempts to hide the falls in London by focussing their press releases on a bouyant market in Wales is nothing short of hilarious. But at the end of the day its all asking prices anyway, so all a complete waste of everybodies time :).
  10. Seriously did we expect any different?
  11. It's great isn't it. I'm half wondering if it was created by @thewig, the tone and narrative a similar

  13. Aren't you missing the point? The vast majority of those will be using the HTB scheme. So in the context of this thread, in 5 years time MSE will be rammed with all these FTB's who were "conned" into HTB scheme bleating on about how unfair it all is, looking for someone to save them. Do you think that HTB is a good thing?
  14. This 100%....mexican stand-off between buyers and sellers....need some event now to tip things either way - Brexit, rate rise etc. Just this morning I spoke to an estate agent after they sent us another ridiculous over-priced, 3-bed semi, doer upper (£750k), explained she might as well stop sending me these things until the vendors and themselves acknowledged that the London market has changed fundamentally over last 18 months.
  15. This is bonkers.....surely they're setting themselves up for a massive head line grabbing fall at some point soon. This is definitely not what I'm seeing in my area of interest - SW London, most on RM page are consistent reductions.
