  1. Laurejon is no different than any other homeowner who is likely to lose many thousands if the market drops, he has already stated on another thread that he is planning to put his house on the market next year for More than he couldent sell it for this year, what a muppet.
  2. "Fears of a housing market crash were calming today after figures from the Bank of England showed an easing rather than a full-scale drop in activity." Someone needs to tell the BOE, I dont think they know that prices are on the way down, perhaps Blunkett has fast tracked his guide dog into a BOE advisors role.
  3. Yes, we cant blame Maggie, or fatboy Lamont. Mind you I bet they've both got BTL, she'll be selling up to pay for her sons bail now though.
  4. I agree, however had to check I wasent wearing chino's and a stripey shirt in case I had had a bobby ewing moment and the last fourteen years were a dream.
  5. summer of 1990, I remember it well, just bought my first house for £43k, then went to Florida for three weeks and was getting nearly $2 to the pound, thought that was great, unfortunately my house was still worth £43k five years later and couldent afford to go on hoilday for a while. I'm sure its just coincidental that these two economic factors, the weak dollar and peak in the housing market are a pure coincidence.. does seem like we've been here before, and guess what most commentators argued that there wouldent be a crash, then and now.
  6. Foolproof, they have no intention of buying these places, why would they, £450 a time, no better than gypsy tarmac layers.
  7. I know of at least two familly members and several friends who own property in France, I am sure I am not unusual in this. Most seem to be planning/have moved there permenantly, or so they think, I have read somewhere that upto 50% of ex-pats return within three years.
  8. -18.3% If the fox's rise up and take power then I predict a bleak time ahead for hounds and twats in red jackets.
  9. It STill is, mind you this would buy you nothing in the present market, hence no FTB's.
  10. Bulgaria may be cheap for houses, but why else would you want to live there? If its for investment only then who else would want to stay there? Sorry but in the long term even when Bulgaria join the EU, it will still be a relativly poor country, with corruption and all the things that go with it.
  11. Good idea, needs a name though, obviously being sorted by the council, so their name needs to be included. Its houses, so needs a name to reflect this, lets see what have we got.............. 'Council houses' Got to be a vote winner
  12. Hang on..isent this the same BBC that commisions DIY, do-up, makeover shows, most of which are still to finish their runs, not surprising they want to suck the last breath out of the feel good win win housing market. Who wants to watch some smug presenter doing up a room if the value of the room is worth less after the makeover, throwing good money after bad.
  13. No it was in the local EA, where miracles happen and dreams come true.
  14. The rebuild cost is 150k because 1. 50k based on new build, economies of scale, think of the logistics of demolition and rebuilding, nightmare. 2. Work will have to be carried out by polish, czech and curdish labourers who will be flogging 30% of materials to their mates on other jobs. 3. Its in London.
