Ideal for investors: You wouldn’t want to live there yourself but some desperate renters will probably go for it.

Deceptively spacious: You have been deceived if you consider this spacious.

Viewing recommended: There’s nothing good to say about it but if you see the inside and use your imagination there’s a slim chance you might like it a little bit.

Potential: Ideal for a DIY enthusiast with lots of time and money on their hands who doesn’t mind living in a dump

'I'm not giving it away'

Closely followed by...

'I'm not selling it for less than it's worth'

'I'm just going to take it off the market until it improves'

'I've tried everything* but it just isn't selling' (*except lowering the price, obviously)

'Getting the banks lending again'

'Freeing up lending'

'Risk of a double dip recession/going back into recession*' (*We never came out of it, you fricking idiots! The BBC in particular seems to like this one)

"In terms of"

There's an epidemic in my office, everyone says it at leat twice a day.

"To be fair"

"She/he turned around and said..."

'On a daily basis' (just say daily!!)

'In all fairness'

'Going forward'

'Year end'

'the current economic climate'

'Can I ask you to...?' (JUST ASK THEM, why do you have to ask if you can ask them???)

Or even worse

'I'm going to have to ask you to...'
