Recommended Posts

No one else watching this? It's quite good so far. I nice dose of realism from the presenter. You can save £46000 by waiting for prices to fall!

I'm already annoyed by the implication that your one and only home is an 'investment.' It's a HOME. Only ones you don't live in are investments.

Linda crapper?! Did I hear that right. She's a knob! Bloke talking sense.

It is exactly people like this who I would love to see get their fingers burnt. I wonder what her £2million porfolio wil be worth when IR's go up to sensible levels... ;)

It's an investment from which you consume the proceeds by living in it rather than renting it out to someone else. Doubt you'll ever make a larger investment in your life - pretty certain I won't.

The idea that by muttering the magic word "home" you can suspend any thoughts of making your investments rationally is what's got us into this godawful mess in the first place.

Well said by Paul what's his name. That was quite bearish I thought despite the VIs efforts.

Classic, short term prices are weak because we are in a credit crunch but on average houses go up 4% per year* doubling your investment regularly so you cant go wrong long term.

*Average taken during 60 year credit bubble for which the crunch is trying to purge :lol:

You know what this show needs. FP!

Yes as FP was on the first 2 shows of this series, I was hoping he would pop up there again, but it looks like, unfortunately he is not on this week.

Good to see a spokesman for the savers, for a change though.

If he's such a prudent saver, why is he accepting 1.4% interest? There are dozens of accounts paying more than that.

That's what iceland was about ...

I have to say I'm disappointed too.

I want to join the vicars savers group.

He hadn't been risky. He said he was getting 4.5% in 2007. Most of them are too loyal I expect. I've moved or closed 4 a/c in the last 18 months. ING, AA, Lloyds all had good short-term stuff. Most people, despite moaning, really can't be ars*d,

The Vicar should stick to giving emotion support, relationship guidance and assisting others with there mild mental health issues. Money is the root of all Evil apparently. Just look at his flock. The country's going to shit and they want government action on there bloody savings.
