Barret Homes Offer

Recommended Posts

Barret Homes are having a deal this weekend in Exeter..

£20,000 of list prices this weekend only.

Tried to photocraph the sign but the sun was right behind it and beyound my mobile to capture the text.

A massive development in Digby in Exeter is only half finished.

They are struggling to sell what they have finished now.

in my price range?

Depends

I can afford it, but still too much debt to be in to have a home.

Lets wait. I could be wrong to, but it would be the first time in history that a housing market has hit its lowest point in months and not years when the prices have started to drop... and it would be the first time in history that they have recovered after a drop begins untill they have dropped below the line on the famous halifax graph. Way to go there then..

So.. Deposits tucked up nicely..

I think I shall wait.. I fancy a new motorbike anyway..

am I rich? no, I am well of..

recent homeowner.. are you rich? on paper it is dropping and to me it seems that you are just in a lot of debt.

there is a difference. to me a marked one..

I don't have a big shiny car and a small house..

but I am not in hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of debt.

Shiny stuff is cool.

shiny stuff on tick is not.

cheap shot..

impress me with a £35,000 car only if you bought it outright with earnt money.

On tick.. It makes my skin go cold..

to be in that sort of debt.. to owe that sort of money.

CB1300S sir?

Sat on one at the roadshow in Brighton - ooh sir! Suits you sir!

But economy dictates I'll stick with the commuter. I'm not quite menopausal yet.

Anybody think car prices might be a lead indicator on house prices? In my childhood I remember watching an episode of the Money Programme with forecourts of mercedes going for a song in Germany. No idea what it was about, just that image of all those big cars they couldn't shift.

EDIT - to keep the thread length down.

thinking about the new speed tripple.. although I think the biggest grin I have ever had would come just before a lot of bending metal and me testing just how good my armour really is..

I have never seen an object that makes me feel like doing so many naugty things..

but the cb1300... nice

but back to the point..

I just went for a ride.. actually ended up at a motorcycle show and looked around..

saw a bike I would like,.,.

Well several.. save over the winter and buy one? Get one on tick..?

think I will save.

look. contrary to popular belief there are more homes than there have ever been and our generation (25-35) is smaller then any preceeding..

there are enough homes..

more are being built in Exeter than are required.. and they are being discounted already..

I would love to be convinced that it would stay where it is now.. price wise.. but I don't see how it can.

it works for me that it will drop.

Britain, according to HonestJohn, has the biggest number of car snobs in the World. I think he has a point.

Car makers make huge profits on selling cars and then they even want to make a profit on lending people the money to buy their cars. All new cars should be sold on 0% terms IMPO and UK car prices brought in line with the EU.

Go and talk to a fleet manager and find out how much they pay for their Fords, VWs, BMWs, etc. It is a fraction of what Joe 'gulliable' Public pays.
