Ex-staff Member Rang Me Up Today To See If I Would

Recommended Posts

A lady I used to work with rang me today to tell me she is selling their house in Hornchurch (fairly nice part of Essex).

She said would i be interested. She said they have had trouble selling it - has been on market for over a year, dropped price by 50 grand since beg. of year.

I asked how much - she said £218 grand !

I explained to her that my other half and I although earning about 50 grand a year between us can only borrow (at about 3 times combined salary) about £150 grand and most 'sensible' lenders will only lend half my salary so we can only get about £130 grand !

"So you are not interested then ?" was her final comment.

You couldn't make it up! :lol:

You could easily buy a 2-3 bed house in Dagenham on your salary (next door to Hornchurch but not quite such a nice part of Essex!). This assumes you don't mind living next to Wayne and Waynetta Slob types whose kids are on ASBOs.

No offence - I would rather shave off all my body hair and sleep with Sadam Hussain than live in Dagenham!

Interesting, these anecdotal stories are suddenly coming thick and fast aren't they! I feel that there is a pent-up crash that only needs that one elusive trigger to send HPs tumbling.

Btw, a personal plea to libitina - please, please, please, change your avatar back to that pretty red head lady with the gorgeous figure and the stategically placed foot. :)
