  1. Jesus wept. Get a grip. Man up. You're coming across as an angry loon.
  2. I suspect your life might have been a whole lot stressful if you simply hadn't stepped out of the market in 2007. Are you really sure it's a case of "refusing to give up" rather than "refusing to accept I made a bad call". Just think. All the hours you've spent venting your spleen on here could have been used for something more constructive instead.
  3. Indeed. You'd have a job even covering the Rightmove fees at £99 per property.
  4. The pound is already down a couple of percent against the dollar from when Carney spoke. The market doesn't believe him.
  5. This nonsense about a rate rise in November has got out of hand. Of course there won't be a rise. The whole "rate rise in November" story was created by the BBC and picked up by every other new outlet when Carney did an interview on the BBC R4 Today programme last month. Carney never actually said that rates would rise in November, only that rates "could rise in the relatively near term". That was typical Carney-speak. He's been saying similar things for years, yet on this occasion the BBC decided to wet themselves and declare that rates would rise in November.
  6. Yes. A house is indeed a depreciating asset when land is excluded. You have to spend money just to maintain its value over time.
  7. I'd love to be a fly on the fence when you do that. Well look on the bright side; your place is obviously worth a fortune now - even though it is in Northampton.
  8. Why would they do that? You're clearly one mightily brassed off individual regarding the state of the UK property "market", yet how much protesting in the street have you ever done? Bashing endlessly on a plastic keyboard may have some cathartic value, but it's not going to change anything.
  9. That's the spirit. I presume you're referring to the Rightmove index which is highly respected around here.
  10. Capital Economics have been peddling that message since about 2010. Maybe they'll be right one day, but probably not until Carney's gone home.
  11. Actually it's +5.1, but it's an annual rise not a quarterly rise. They compare quarters with the corresponding quarter last year.
