Where Are The Property Investment

Recommended Posts

I havent seen a property investment show for a while.

a couple of years ago the echedule was pumped full of programmes showing how you could buy a property for X do it up and sell if for X + 35%..

For some reason they seem to have become less popular.

The odd repeat from Krusty aside..

sorry.. glibb point..

Since the million pound property invesment show where they were going to make a profit of a million in a year and as far as I could tell they lost on each..

anyone have any ideas for any new property shows.?

Wealthy profesionals manage to get a nice home without having to lie about their salary..?

Catching the mortgage fraudsters?

They appear to be leaving our screens quite quickly, but I did notice this on the C4 listings

'Trapped in the Sun'

Apparently it is all about people who took the story peddled by other C4 (and other channels, of course) rosy images of an easy life in the sun and now find themselves in a hell hole of some sort. :(

Oh hum!

Edit: Just noticed 'burnt_before' has a seperat thread on the C4 prog..

I want to see an in-depth exposé of self-cert mortgage fraud, the complete discrediting of buy-to-let investment clubs, and the shaming of property investors who have all conspired to price out FTBs from buying in 95% of the country they were born in.

I believe that the BBC did a very good expose of self-cert mortgages, including the wide spread fraud. So that is one tick on your list :rolleyes:

Must have missed that one.... let's have another then !! :D Given the scale of what's gone on, there can't be too many.

...not to mention overseas investors who price out 99% of the locals in a country they WEREN'T born in by buying a 'holiday home' that remains empty for 48 weeks a year! :angry:

Not that you'd catch any self respecting, self sacrificing Brit nipping over to Spain or Florida buying holidays homes.. :)

Heard someone on the Steve Wright show boasting that they had a holiday home in Goa! Like they have not got a house shortage in India.

Come to think of it, I barely watch TV anymore. It's ironic really, we now have hi-definition TV, satellite, widescreen and all sorts of other innovations.

But all the best shows were actually filmed before any of this was invented. Everyone might as well have an old square telly with rounded corners and a wooden cabinet. :ph34r:

It was excellent & from a 'Money Programme' Special I think. But sadly I think it was nearly over a year ago <_<

The daytime property porn (porn for cowards) repeats are still going strong, I just checked the listing & homes under the hammer & the related 'beat the burglar are still on. The atrocious 'To buy or not to buy ' was on until the other week.

C4 keep repeating various 'in the sun' type scum.

While on the BBc subject, I just watched the 1 '0'clock news, when reporting on returning New Orleans Katrina victims they said 'no sign or tourists yet though' :rolleyes: unbelievable
