Krusty 'n Phil Are Back!

Recommended Posts

"Property series are a good bet whatever the economic weather. In boom times they dish out valuable tips and big ideas; and when the market is in the doldrums, well, they let people dream. [Kirsty and Phil] have stayed dauntingly upbeat throughout, sticking to their reliable blend of market wisdom, and endless flirty arguments."

Armchairs and half-bricks at the ready....

Market wisdom like the time in Northampton where they helped a young gay couple set a "new ceiling" for the road, in far cotton, which was on the flood plane and not a great area...you can now set a new floor by buying something like this:

Wisdom..I know another word for what they have.

Eh, 80K for half of a 2-up 2-down.

Don't you expect to get the whole house for that price in Northampton?

HAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA! In the first ten minutes Krusty is encouraging one of the couples to spunk their money on anything regardless of the price and Phil is saying the couple are "undervaluing property due to their inexperience". Classic stuff.

Bankruptcy is a valuable experience Phil.

Worth a read, I surprise myself saying that about the guardian

"It's official: Location Location Location is bombproof. Nothing can kill it – not familiarity or the property crisis or a general growing disinterest in watching two poshos unconvincingly wink and leer at each other in a succession of manky houses."

:lol:

OMG! Thats a terrace turned into flats. Used to pick the whole thing up in Northampton for under £10k each. Far cotton, what a dump. Handy for the Express Lift Tower I suppose (the factory has now long gone of course).

Some of the readers comments are class.

"I despise Location Location Location and Kirsty & Phil so much that just thinking of it brings me out in a rash. In fact simply recovering from reading this article may require several days of bed rest."

"Location was worth watching in the first few series when Kirstie was hot.

Now she's not as hot it's a let down frankly.

No I'm only kidding - really the problem with the show is that when everyone felt they were rich and could one day afford that £million house, watching people decide on what to buy was fun - but then the reality of an economy built on debt collapsing around our ears hit and we will be lucky to sell our house at all for 5 - 10 years, it's not fun anymore, it's just grating, so we don't bother watching."

"There is lots of stuff on telly that should be taken out and shot.

But Kirsty Slop tops my list every time."

I worry that many people selling their homes - especially boomers of a different generarion - will glean from this program that it is the norm for first-time buyers with 2 kids to have mortgage funding for 250k, or FTBs who live with their parents to have a 100k deposit in place. Although I guess most people who are watching have seen several of LLL episodes already -- hard to avoid unless you bin the telly.

I love the fact that the two of them still make out as though they are brokering international business deals, when in fact all they are doing is passing on a message to an estate agent. Still, at least they managed to get these two tonight under the asking price.

No but Kirsty was keen to get her buyers into a bidding war with a supposed "other party".. The "other party's" existence in question notwithstanding, the couple had already tossed a coin over which house they wanted anyway, it wasn't like it was unique, never to be repeated, they should have just bid on the other house they wanted instead.

Fear not - most of us are just a mite more clued-up than you seem to think.

Funnily enough, that's because many of us have kids who are either priced out altogether or can't afford to trade up to what was once an ordinary, affordable family home.

i watched that rubbish last night...I was screaming at the TV at the end. They should be taken off the TV. Imagine saying a property that's on at 255 there was a chance to get it for 250 and 244 was a cheeky offer....144 would be a cheeky offer.

P.S. there is a screaming hole in the TV market for a reality buyer style program...with comments like:

250K for that, they must be f**king joke.

Are these poeple taking this P*** this is worth half what they are asking.

Let's wait till they get repo'd and we'll buy it for half.

First TV production company that does that will have a winner on their hands.

How these two idiots get airtime is really beyond me, I can only assume that the TV production luvvies are somehow so out of sync with the financial reality facing the huge majority of this country that they seriously think that this is prime TV entertainment for the masses.

I can imagine the other trash they would put out if there were no broadcasting rules regarding content: Celebrity Homeless Kicking, Bash the Poor, Homes you couldnt possibly afford, Smell my Inherited Wealth?

Phil the failed businessman and bankrupt whos failed "pwoperty" company died on it's behind owing 500,000 and Kirsty the one trick TV pony who's only route for survival is being propt up by her wealthy parents and lying to millions about the true cost of property porn on society, it's enough to make you vomit, this show needs to be shot in the head, burnt and buried like the shambling zombie it is.

The only show I would watch with these two clowns is one where they are forced to live with families in overcrowded and unhealthy rented accomodation on the bread line.
