Not So Great When It's Dark And Raining

Recommended Posts

I STR'd in January.

I too have become a house price bore, reading every report posted on here, hoping for a crash.

Then I see the Halifax release a statement saying house prices are going up.

Am I bothered ? Well no quite frankly. I'm in no rush to buy now, and very soon it will be Autumn, closely followed by Winter.

Yep, dark mornings; dark nights; rain; cold; iced up cars; miserable faces all around.

And will people be rushing around viewing houses wanting to spend large amounts of money when it's all so miserable and the high street sector has imploded, and Christmas is coming, and Uncle John has just lost his job and is taking part time work at the turkey plucking factory ? Methinks not !!! And houses don't look so appealing when there's empty trees outside, overgrown grass in the gardens, muddy entrance ways, dirty windows.

So how will the prices stand up to the Winter months ? Perhaps they'll keep rising, perhaps they'll stop as they are until the Spring bunnies come out to play... or perhaps they'll start their readjustment as the whole of the country suddenly wakes up to the reality of the economic problems that are fast approaching.

That's just my view. So, if like me you read the BBC headline and sighed, don't worry - cheer up, winter's nearly here ;)

I am not in the least bit worried about the Halifax report; if volumes of sales suddenly shot up, I would be, but there's no chance of that. The good ship 'Crash' is well on course!

AGREED.

I am old enough to have seen this boom/bust nonsense three times over. This crash will be no different to the last and it will follow as sure as night follows day.

The only thing required is the patience to wait it out.

I actually smiled when they were published earlier.

I smiled when I saw the BBC give it pride of place on their website.

I smiled when I visited this website earlier to judge reaction.

I smiled when I took a quite glance at the HPI graph to remind myself of the situation.

I smiled a lot today.

I got upset thinking about the poor people who believe this horsesh1t.

I think i need a hanky.

this is why you all have to cancel your licence fee in protest at the disaster the bbc are strongly promoting to all and sundry.

it is by no means a public service and by no means will i be forced to pay for such propaganda.

The BBC gave the Nationwide report of a drop, exactly the same prominence, It was the lead story in the business section for the whole day, just the same. I think moaning about the BBC and accusing Haliwide of fraud is missing the point. Are you trying to say that prices haven't really risen over the last few years ? Is it all a big con ? The graphs showing the last crash are Haliwide data too.

I expect when drops are reported, you will say this is rubbish too, just lies and propaganda.....NOT :P
