House Swap

Recommended Posts

Colleague at works mentions her folks are looking to move house (I think here we go and roll my eyes :rolleyes: )

Anyways, they've not quite put it on the market yet and they get a call from the EA saying a woman wants to swap her 3 bed bungalow for their 4 bed detached. She will pay any difference they wish to negotiate too.

Apparently she is a divorcee and had the bungalow on the market for a while.

Could this be another sign of the market downturn that house swaps are in the offing?

Would make a great TV show don't ya think?

If people swap their houses they can still pretend (to their bank) that they own an asset that is worth as much as they borrowed. A sale would "officialise" the fact that they are in negative equity.

yeah it would make a (yawn) excellent show.

:lol: Try and use some of that imagination of yours rfd.

Think of all the "effing cow this" and "bleedin b" that you see on "normal" property shows.

I reckon it'd be even worse with swapping. :D

Get Noel Tidybeard to host it, Cheggers on location, re-stitch posh-paws the dinosaur and you've got ratings gold.

The Multi-Coloured House Swap

Or, maybe a special retail version

The Multi-Coloured Shop Swap

nice suggestions guys but housing programs are dead. research shows that its turning people off in droves.

even it we introduced topless rennovators i think wed still struggle. the open purse of the property program has vamoosed. split. producers wont touch em. want something new. always with the something new.

no i have my own ideas of what would make good wholesome daytime viewing, but there really boring. id take a film crew about the country looking for river city urchins and hoodlums of the highest order and follow them through top legal college, then training as fast jet pilots with the RAF fighter squadron 92. battle of britian decorated. then id film them eating apples while trying to pull big girls at a local disco in motherwell.

one things for sure. i wont be using cheggers again. that guy gives me the creeps. he knew philburn was mine and he took her. in the hot air baloon on the brighton sunday seasdide special 1978. and i will never forgive him. do you hear me keith ?

You may joke, but I heard to my horror today that Noel Edmonds has been resurrected to host some C4 quiz show. At least Dave Lee Travis only lives on in Singing Pig Perma-bull Avatars :)
