Free Pig With Your House

Recommended Posts

I think it is just this sort of thing that will break the public perception of the housing market as being anything other than absurd.

As a marketing trick it has obviously worked a treat for this particular developer but as a barometer for the rest of the market it may just mark the tipping point - gut reaction of even the most ardent property fan would be - what the hell would I want a pig for, is this a joke, hey wait a minute why the hell am I paying £300k for £30k worth of building materials?????!

30K worth of building materials 60/40 split labour to materials, add VAT (or not if it is new) 88K. Your block is worth 212K. Pigs will fly.

'The bizarre scheme was, however, condemned by the RSPCA, who branded the promotion "irresponsible".

A spokeswoman for the charity said: "The RSPCA believe taking on an animal should be a carefully-considered decision, based on ability and knowledge to care for that animal in the proper way." '

I'm a member of the RSPCA, I'm going to mail them as this could constitute cruelty, pigs are not pets.

A free pig would not be a deal clincher for me.

Maybe someone a little rasher?

Arf, arf! :lol:
