Quick - Cancel Your House Sale!

Recommended Posts

Don't let them estate agents con you into selling at that low price. They are saying things have changed.

If you listen to them now it's obvious they are talking about prices increasing this year. So take them at their word. Why sell at that low price when you can obviously get loads more money in months if not weeks? Those nasty estate agents duped you into accepting a low price to get the market going again.

Why not get out of the sale while you still can then readvertise at a higher price?

Why sell at all? Anyone who sells is not in it for the long term.

You only have to look at all the threads on here, stuff like:

CEBR say house crash over

Mortgage approvals up

The boom is back

That estate agent on the BBC site swamped by buyers

etc. etc.

Don't be a mug. Get that sale cancelled while you still can.

Those estate agents wouldn't lie about the market would they?

Indeed.

Once bought, a house should be for life.

Ban the sale of secondhand homes I say.

Yes. Or better still - rent it out and spend all your inheritance on some flats or a bigger house. Renting your house out it easy and easily covers mortgage payments.

House prices have historically NEVER GONE DOWN after going up - EVER. So, you can't lose.

There's one thing sure about life and that financial investments ALWAYS go up and nobody ever loses money.

A second-hand house salesman told me.

Removals people can retrain as undertakers. Only one box to shift then.

Think about it.

If the estate agents, RICS etc know that prices are going up then they are not working in your interests by having you sell now are they? It is going to cost you £1,000's

Get it cancelled.

Don't feel sorry for the buyer they are duping you, they think you are a mug selling now.

There will be an awful smell if couples don't die at the same time :(

The law will need tightening up. Random death will have to go.

I'm off to load up on flats this very afternoon.

I'm going for the off-plan-interest-only-in-the-shit-together-185%-mortgage-up-and-coming-area-luxury-executive apartments.

If you don't buy now, you'll be priced out forever, suckers!

Interestingly, this has sort of been tried in Ireland over the last few years by punitive stamp duty rates on 2nd hand houses vs new builds.

Can't see any problems emerging yet in the Irish property market, so it is surely a winner Gorgon should try.....

Hah, beat you too it!

I've just paid the asking price for executive apartments in Pan Peninsular and Royal Arsenal, Woolwich. Going to make a fortune, with the banking industry getting back on its feet.

If I had a sale going through I would take a letter to my estate agent and get them to sign it with a "yes" or "no" to this question:

"Do you or any of your staff personally know who is buying my house?"

Someone must be getting a right bargain with prices going back up. Would it be easier for the agent to have been persuaded to sell your pride and joy at such a low price by someone they know? They might have inadvertently let themselves be too generous with YOUR property.

I once bought a top at Asda and it was reduced in the sale the week after. I was GUTTED! Gods knows how I would feel if a house I sold was back on the market the month after at 10% more.

It wouldn't surprise me to see a really astute estate agent on the BBC any day now:

"We have recently persuaded 125 clients to cancel their house sales and prevented the sale of about 625 properties in the chains involved. We did this because it is obvious that house prices are rising and the people selling were going to lose a fortune selling too cheaply"

Think how many sellers would immediately rush to put their properties for sale with this HONEST agent! An agent looking after his clients!

You buy low and sell high - there is no sense in selling when prices are rising is there?

But Ive got 10% deposit and only need 8X salary inc bonuses. Bring back the old Northern Rock they knew how to lend.

I'm sorry, it must have been the wrong application. The one that I saw was a 110% LTV and 10x salary plus expected bonuses in 2015.

There is a QE special on. I am sure that a prudent borrower like yourself is doing this to help the working families of Britain so your application will be approved immediately. You should check your account. The money should already be there .......
