  1. Thank god for that 😉 But seriously.........are you Robert Jenrick?
  2. Why are you so desperate to debunk and discredit HPC rhetoric? You seem to have been on a mission this week to, rather smugly, rub peoples faces in it. Seems a bit desperate and you've obviously got plenty of time on your hands to dedicate to the task. It's either: a) because you bought a house last year? b) you work for a VI? EA would be my guess c) you are Robert Jenrick?
  3. First comment is quite interesting: The market is busy but not as busy on what is being reported. All a bit of a false economy until the stamp and furlough come to an end. Make the most of it now as the backlash of Brexit and the Pandemic are yet to follow.
  4. Jenrick is the worst kind of Tory; brazenly corrupt, an astonishing hypocrite and really, really smug. Just the sound of his voice is enough to make my skin itch. IMHO
  5. Really interesting read and would be great bear food. Sadly it's likely to be drowned out by the full on ramping rhetoric across most other mainstream media, I think the BBC have had a property ramping fluff piece every day this week so far.
  6. It’s taken a while for the penny to drop. Question is, when are they going to wake up?
  7. Exchanged contracts? Or they’ve accepted a juicy offer and are now part of a chain which may or may not complete/collapse in the next 6 to 12 months? the two things are very different.
  8. I think this is relevant here as well - https://www.contractoruk.com/news/0015039santanders_new_mortgage_terms_are_shoo_in_covid_hit_contractors_right_wrong.html?utm_source=NL&utm_medium=News&utm_campaign=Comment So not only are FTB's struggling with mortgage applications, so are the self-employed/contractors. This super-boom is being fuelled by a very small (and very lucky) cohort of the UK population.
  9. I'm calling bull....we're in the midst of a super-boom, its all I've heard for the past week on every website, news channel and newspaper.
  10. They're not even trying to hide the fraud any more, just basically openly saying give us more tax payers money to sustain our profits and maintain any semblance of 'supply' - its verging on blackmail from these VI's.
  11. A quick search on Rightmove, within 1 mile of City of London there are currently 3846 flats for sale - seems like quite a lot of choice/oversupply is out there now.
  12. Got very bored on the way home from work and read the report including the small print for the first time, this did prompt an overly loud public guffaw from me: The Nationwide House Price Indices are prepared from information that we believe is collated with care, but no representation is made as to their accuracy or completeness.
