What did the EA say? Were they allowed to finish on an optimistic high?

something like 'it's not all gloom and doom' to which I was going to reply: "Why is paying less for a home bad news?"

"Why is paying less for a home bad news?"

Yes, the eternal question that should be asked of TV and newspaper columnists when they're hand wringing and wailing over falling house prices. Although many of em will be VIs, one way or the other.

I was listening.

Good points, well made.

Typical bloody EA at the end though.

Anytime property comes up in discussion now, I just say "the less we spend on housing costs, the more can be spent in the economy" and leave it at that, just sow the seed that eventually the wider economy has to take precedence over "homeowners" and even banks.

I think I said that on the radio show, but I think it falls on deaf ears, to be honest.

People just think: "Yeah, but my house will be worth more in 20 years." And repeat this to themselves whenever anything vaguely non-HPI is uttered.

"Yeah, but my house will be worth more in 20 years."

And in nominal terms they are right.

In real terms they could not be more wrong.

:rolleyes: typical !

Trust them to give the estate agent the last say.

But well done to you, for getting on air with your say.

Unfortunately I only caught the end, but hope it reaches iplayer so more of us on hpc get to hear it.

The debate has continued after the news. Just had some very balanced, sane person on from Swansea talking about the silly asking prices in the area and the glut of properties on the market.

Oh drat..

didn't realise it continued after the new, so I missed that sane, very balanced person?

I wonder who that was? ;)

Many of them probably do, some carnage required in the present to wipe this meme for ever?
