  1. I'm calling the commuter belt crashing. Peak was last spring. This is Farnham, Surrey. Seeing some proper drops now. 1.15 to 930. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-51642324.html 1.3 to 1.1 http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-51363171.html 1.4 to 1.3 http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-70944410.html Loads of nice stuff that would normally go quickly now stuck on rm month after month. Bring it on!!!
  2. Yes. You're right. God if the HPC educated can't say it right...it was just laziness on my part. I suppose I was making the point that I've got skin in the game (thanks NNT), even when prices fall I will be happy (even though I personally loose), the greater good will gain.
  3. Sorry I can't post again till 2022. It's unimaginable to think that we might all still be here then. I did have another name for a bit, but then couldn't find the details. I just like to read.
  4. I have thought about this alot. The number of people renting is growing and has been growing for the last ten years at one per cent a year. Also, the parties in Spain and Itay that are doing well weren't around 2 years ago. I would call it fairness for all. I wouldn't have such overt policies as crash houses. But several of my top ten policies would be housing related and aggressive. Triple CT for second homes, Tax BTL, Tax empty homes. Change the measurments of the BofE. Bring in long rental agreements. Make LL's have certificates for proof of no damp. LL all have to have double glazing etc. Change the name of housing benefit to Landlord benefit. Other policies would be put a teacher, head, doctor, nurse in charge of education and health. Reduce assessments in schools. Reduce business red tape (actually do it). Halve university fees. Get rid of zero hours contracts. Invoke Article 50. Sort out care homes (nationalise).
  5. I have also been reading the forum since 2003. Rarely post. What happened to Fred (?) that only used to post in poems and the snowbear guy who lived in sussex?
  6. I am in the same position as you. Have done quite well out of HPI. I am absolutely sick of the system. I find it revolting. I have friends who are frozen out of my local town. The massive difference in their lives and that of their peers is a chasm (through bad luck, divorce etc). No one talks about it where I live. I live in a rich middle class SE market town. There are supposedly clever people who live here who have good jobs. No one talks about it. It's like 1984. There is the biggest elephant in the room ever and no one cares. I have learnt so much from these forums. I am different from the majority here in that I am a woman, 38, with three young kids. My heart also lies with being frugal etc (which most HPCers love). Being on this forum has taught me and led me to so many different places, money, policitics etc etc. The whole situation does my head in as well in that it was all so unnecessary. What a giant colossal waste of time. People (most) want a quiet life. Couple of kids, decent school, pub, mates, holiday in spain, semi 3 beds. What a useless series of governments that can't even do that. I could do so much better.
  7. I have been reading this site for years (since 03). Lord. Anyhow, after so many hours reading there are a few things which seem to me now so important and I don't understand. So we now have permanent qe, maybe negative rates and currency collapse. So...what does this actually mean to the man on the street. Will hp collapse, will we actually get a new currency, should I just buy gold and silver, should I buy other assets (cars) etc. Does anyone know?
