An Mse Tale Of Woe

Recommended Posts

My New Year's resolution was to cut down on the schadenfreude. So far, not so good.

The poster has bought a new build flat in Watford with a plan to sell it in 2 - 3 years and at least break even. The most positive thought I can come up with is that I hope she learns something from the experience.

Ahhh God

Have never read so many stupid replies. You can see why a HPC seems unlikely with that mind set. Most of the posters cannot conceive EVER that house prices can go down as well as up. They talk glibly about not dancing to a landlord's tune any more because they bought a house. Nobody mentions that they are dancing to the tune of a bank! The day will come(because it always does)when the bank's stop being Mr Nice Guy and hurl their fake forebearance out of the window. Indebted ho moaners will be to scared to whine! Also how do you like the assumption from the originL poster, that falling house prices should not be allowed to happen because there are so many of the poor unfortunates drowning in debt to buy a teeny tiny box. Cue Venger!

My landlord just bought me a new bathroom - and pays the warranty on the boiler, fridge and washing machine so I don't have to worry if they break down! He is even planning to re-decorate in the summer. :lol:

Late to finding this thread.

Struck me as the MSE thread might have been made by a HPCer out fishing (their 'turn' to buy... authorities can't let them fall cause of misery of more recent buyers?) - but so many replies there riddled with entitlement and complacency.

Got to love quotes like this;

Kinger101: I'd say they'll almost certainly increase in value.

My question to this statement of certainly is always; "relative to what?"

Oops... I didn't realise this thread was in Regional forums; 'England - Greater London'.

Came to it via an indirect search on 'MSE'.

Going to edit the post above and place it elsewhere.
