Take The Rightmove Consumer Confidence Survey

Recommended Posts

Needs to be better thought through by whoever designed it. I ticked boxes saying I was renting and have no plans to change. A few questions later it asked me why I was planning to buy a property in the next 12 months! I'd just indicated that I thought prices were going to fall over 10% next year and that it was a bad time to buy!!!

Simon Cowell x Dannii Minogue x Louis Walsh x Cheryl Cole x Don't know

Be able to hear singing in the shower

Look after the house and feed the fish while you're on holiday

Ask you to keep the noise down

Challenge your planning permission for an extension

I had fun with this one - my reason for why I thought property would be cheaper in a year was a simple two words 'Socio-economic collapse'.

Then they asked me to look at a photo of a new build and describe it. I did - mentioning that it would probably have paper thin walls and possibly unstated structural defects - every 'new build' I've ever been in or rented has been falling to bits - with walls and under-floors full of rubble and all sorts.

Then it was how I'd describe these 'newly built flats' that translated as 'Slums of the future'.

Yep I ticked no plans to buy and it came up with the same thing! The survey is flawed! I'll tell them.

I would have thought that clicking through from this site, meant that they could trace all the HPC contributions.

Anyone know?

I think maybe they can. Someone provided a link to a previous rightmove survey that somehow went through a third party site, don't know how to do it though.

It did the same to me. I entered an appropriate comment. Perhaps the designer just could not grasp the concept of somebody not wanting to buy a house.

Exactly the same problem here. Stupid questionnaire.

If enough HPCers take the survey, you think they'll still publish it.

"And in other news, a consumer confidence survey by rightmove has shown that house prices are expected to fall by more than 10% in the next year"

... "And also, surprisingly that 100% of respondents are planning to buy during the next year"

This ones a bit more in depth, not just do you think prices will rise or fall but why...

https://survey.vovici.com/se.ashx?s=450055DC054A604D

My contributions.

"Cheap tack modern shoe box, on a postage stamp sized plot, way overpriced by about double. Will probably need half a dozen tradesmen visits to fix all the teething problems. I've bought new property before. Not yet spoiled by smokers or other peoples kids. On the market for 280k, cost 85k to build. This is why prices are bound to fall."

and

"Why are flats advertised as 'luxurious' or 'stunning', when they are several bare rooms and a half decent kitchen?

Flats are filing systems for human beings and should be banned. These look as dull and boring now as they will in 30 years time. There's stacks of spare land around for proper houses, but the system makes sure its availability is limited."

:lol: I just put "shoebox"

Very poor survey all in all. I think they should have tested it before putting live.

Err....

Right click on the link.

Click "Copy Link Location"

Open new window. Navigate to porn site of choice. The pervier the better.

"Ctrl V" the copied link into navigation bar.

They'll be so busy checking out if www.over40sDDNextDoorMunters.com is worth a swift one, that they'll miss anyone who slipped through from HPC. :)

on the plan to buy i just put 'no i didn't'

then something to do with debt built shoddy shithole on another one (though i did admit that even though it was new build i'd prefer to live in it over the 1800 house as the roads are a nightmare for terraced houses).

then the flats was just a future of uncertainty.

and i live in a house with 300 adults.

You forgot to add that most of the other units would probably be bought by absentee BTL landlords and either filled with short-term tennants or DSS claimants who most likely won't have any interest in keeping the place nice.

I was about to suggest just copying the link, but your solution is far more elegant.

I just copy and pasted!

I thought the bit about the newbuilds was funny, house = Newbuild, flats = shoebox and WTF was that thing about X-Factor?

I gave up.

It was already tedious, but the bit about X-Factor judges put the tin lid on it for me.

I persevered in spite of the X-Factor reference. As someone who hasn't watched a single minute of a single programme of however many series it has managed now (and yet am still depressingly aware of who judges the "talent" by means of MSM osmosis), I couldn't bear to live near any of them. Just think of all those awful wannabes camped outside, screeching in a desperate attempt to prove how talented they are and how much more they "want it" than anyone else. And that's just the paparazzi.

+1

Stopped at that point - it lost all credibility.

I suppose if you don't watch X-Factor you're not considered a normal person.

So they put it in to screen out weirdos like moi. :)
