Deluded Sellers On Bbc News?

Recommended Posts

Did I just dream that?

Did the BBC just interview some 'property expert' who talked about deluded sellers still trying to sell at 2007 prices when the market had fallen considerably from that peak?

I have a headache but think I might need to go and get a scan.

Yes TMT! Made a little bit of sick come into my mouth. Please see the other BBC thread. Know anyone who can step up and represent the site? Thoughts? Comments on the idea? 

Thnk goodness - thought I was going insane for a moment.

You should be pleased. It should have brought a smile to your mouth and not the contents of your gut.

Just the rolling one re The Beeb:

http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=156210&pid=2824106&st=15entry2824106

My little plea for a non-hill-walking spokesman is on there...

Nah, that thread makes no mention of it. About half an our ago the BBC had a guy having a good at high house prices and he was from some organisation such as the CML or the like.

I was half asleep on the sofa so did not hear it all but woke up sharpish when he mentioned deluded sellers not realising that the market had fallen but still trying to sell at peak prices.

Anyone else see this?

Are you sure Mr T?

You are forgetting that their house is worth it. After all:

- Prices only ever go up

- They are savvy sellers who have watched property porn tv and know how to make their property worth a little more

- The property must be worth that amount. After all, if it was worth that before then the prices of everything else have gone up, and it's still the same property, so why should the price have changed?

:unsure:

He seemed happy enough with his lot even if he looked like he has had a hard life (33 :o ), good luck to him.

Yes, positive.

No you saw it, just caught a bit of it on the news channel. Sure he mentioned 'Irrelevant and irrational' prices.

I saw it.

Though it started with someone who had saved and struggled to get on the 'property ladder'... it had the dimwit from CML on, then wow!, something about HPs being too high. There was even a graph that showed the the HP to earning ratio had gone from 3.5 to 5.

I was amazed it was on the BBC. First time ever...

No doubt a newbie editor that will be taken outside and shot.

They still couldn't being themselves to go that far, but did use the term 'relatively high house prices' followed by nice bar chart in the normal simples BBC format. Nice! :)

I can't find the video on the BBC website.

Are you a potential home buyer? Does the poor state of the economy deter you from buying? Send us your comments.

No, it doesn't deter me from buying cause I'm fick. I like to buy things when they are priced high. I dream of negative equity.

You cannot make this sort of stuff up!

I should have my own poll: Are you a potential handgun buyer? Does the mandatory 5 years of prison buggery deter you from buying?

the cracks are turning into yawning chasms now chaps...

i think my view of the end of the denial phase being this winter is spot on, next year really will be a bloodbath on several levels.

The 'propert expert' was none other than Henry Pryor, one of the sanest commentators on the UK property market you are likely to see on the BBC at the moment. The last couple of times he has popped up on TV and radio he has been startlingly swift to knock back any attempt to talk up house prices. This evening he likened anyone who fancied prices might recover next year to those who ignored warnings of the Arctic blast a fortnight ago. Nice!

It was Henry Prior who calls himself the BBC's favourite property expert. He really does.

I saw it and it the first true statement he's made in all his appearances. (Hence why he's a/the fave)
