H U T H This Morning

Recommended Posts

This hugely bullish show was - no doubt - accidentally bearish. I caught 5 mins just now and it had the October 2008 Savills auction. The room, which you will know is normally full and bursting on these progs, was literally only 15% 'full'.

The property in question (a total refurb dump with all bright pink upstairs!!!) didn't even get its very low guide price though it did sell. No doubt it had no reserve.

Regular sheeple watchers will have been totally shocked tghat the BBC guardians of 'truth' allowed this to be broadcast.

Luvvly jubbly. :P

What is a HUTH?

I thought it was something that Han Solo sliced opened and placed Luke Skywalker in in order to keep him alive in the snow?

Or was it a planet that Darth Vader blew up?

That would be a tauntaun, and Hoth, respectively.. :geek:

HUTH is 'Homes Under The Hammer'.

Edit: Actually, Darth didn't blow up Hoth, he invaded it. Grand Moff Tarkin blew up Alderaan with the Death Star. :doublegeek:

Where can my girlfriend get one of those Princess Leia slavegirl outfits?

Those camera shots of buyers walking in and out of rooms and gazing at nothing in particular, while there is a voice-over, gets on my nerves especially.

The guy in Dover's face fell when he was told what properties were worth in Dover. He was from N. London. :lol:

Now at long last I have sussed your avatar. Is that Princess Leia with the whip?

No, that is Lois from Family Guy - regularly voted the sexiest cartoon female on the basis that she probably would give anything a try.

My favourite is estate agents looking in cupboards. A HUTH trademark.

They must have 'made' at the end though when the EA comes to value it. The BBC wouldn't broadcast it otherwise.

I like to look the properties up on the LR to see if they actually sell for what the valuers say. But anytime after 2007 the houses don't show up as being sold again even when the 'investors' say the looking for a quick turnaround. They must all just rent them out hoping for the recovereh.

Edit: or they are still for sale like the one in anectdotals.

About 2 years ago, there were definitley shows where they had 'lost' money, i.e. valued at less than they paid.

I'm sure I remember a fella in Wales who bought a place to develop houses on and ended up pulling it down, clearing the site and selling it on as land only. Can't remember any figures but it wasn't good.

The other one to watch out for is when they duck down slightly, close one eye, and try to look like they're expertly checking some dimension.

Happens more than once every show. The EA did it in the kitchen today, and realising he was looking like a tw4t he kind of stopped half way down. Retards, the lot of them :P

The Dover guy bought for 55k in Dec 2008. Says he will wait a couple of years until he can get a 100k for it.

Show pointed out that he was wise to wait, as houses on the same street had sold for well over 100k just a few years ago. True, but all 100k plus sales occured between mid 2006 and late 2007 (right on top of peak). Nobody pointed out they sold for 30-40k at the start of the noughties. Last three sold on the same street fetched 47k a piece as a job lot earlier this year :D

so you wouldn't? ;)

Is it HUTH where they have that funky music when they bring on the EAs like they're meant to be really cool? I think they should play some more appropriate music and as star wars has been mentioned perhaps it should be Darth Vader's imperial march

For anyone lazing around at home and watching today... looks like the first one might end up with a result:

http://www.nethouseprices.com/index.php?con=sold_prices_street_detail&street=EDITH+WOOD+CLOSE&locality=ALVASTON&town=DERBY&cCode=EW&year=All&house_style=All&house_age=All&search_radius=&outcode=DE24&incode=0HJ

Bought Nov08 for 80k

Sold May09 for 125k

Can't imagine they threw any more than 20k at it.

I thought that was the aspiration of the average STR/Large deposit hpc follower. No can't be, that would make you all NOBS, hypocritical NOBS.

I think for most of us there is a big difference.

The BTL/developer brigade want to make money (preferably a killing) from a non-productive asset class. The majority of people here simply want to buy somewhere to live for a price that is fair at a sustainable market value. If the whole peak/trough thing never occurred, and would never occur again then I for one would be very happy. Speculators rely on the cycle to make money.

As an aside, I do want my property to help support my retirement. I do not want or need HPI to do this. I will buy somewhere that is around 15 times average salary. This should get me something fantastic. At the moment it doesn't. Then in my old age I should be able to sell for 15 times the future average salary, and downsize and free up perhaps 6-8 times average salary. This should help boost my dubious private pension arrangements. I would like HP to be stable and affordable for all.

Having said all that, it is easy to understand why you might say I am a hypocritical NOB. I don't think I am, but I suppose I might be. In the end it comes down to opinion.

IIRC the BBC pays an annual fee which lets them broadcast any music they like. They don't pay individual royalties like the smaller broadcasters do, so don't have to limit to 30 seconds. This is why sometimes background music in a drama is changed for a DVD release - their PRS licence only pays for the initial broadcast.

Maybe it's also why Homes Under the Hammer uses such a wide variety of music! :D

Anyway this is the link to the episode in question.

http://bbc.co.uk/i/mr318/

"Homes Under the Hammer - Series 13- Episode 41. Martin Roberts and Lucy Alexander visit a bungalow with hidden depths in Devon, a property in Dover and a house with a problematic cellar in Preston."
