Housing Market 'to Slow Ahead Of Eu Poll'

Recommended Posts

Guest BillyNI

I read that on the BBC and thought "What a load of balls. They are just getting the excuses in early to trap the last of the idiots in debt."

Hopefully it will continue to slow after it.

It's been slowing for 12 months...no one wants to tell the sheeple. A good BrExit vote and they'll have the perfect excuse for their crash

Excuse after excuse after excuse. Scottish referendum, general election, EU referendum. It'll be the American elections that are blamed next!

People need to accept the market is slow because people can't afford the houses on the market!

A "slowing housing market" probably refers just as much to the number of houses coming on to the market... just like this time last year when people started to notice a sudden decline in stock levels and everyone was saying it was just down to the forthcoming general election and "the market would get back to normal" afterwards.

Instead stock levels just continued to keep on falling and falling.

Yep it's a dysfunctional Market, the only people that can move are the unmortgaged playing swaperama with each other or boomers deploying decades of investment gains into the BTL market. Anybody that actually needs a house to live in as opposed to a lifestyle change ot investment needs serious government help which further supportys prices.

Biting the bullet and having a reset is the only way you can have a functioning market now.

There will be no BrExit vote, even if there is, there won't be.

Thats my belief also.

That will in itself cause a lot of anger.

The Scottish have realised they've been duped.....Scottish anger is not a good thing....Look what those nutters do to terrorists :lol::lol::lol:

They will vote to remain in (how this is achieved is up for debate) - markets will love it for a day or two, and then the same old same old: years of dysfunction and stagnation ahead of us. Generations waiting their entire working lives for the bus that never comes. Then a bus comes, but the driver mugs those waiting at the bus-stop (bail-ins). Then he gets back on the bus and drives off. One massive "meh" of a life for millions of people. Fukc that - take the advice below and.....well...emigrate. You can do it:-

What would happen if there was an out vote would be that the La La Land stuff that Farage and co have been banging on about will soon be seen as totally unachievable and the UK would have to settle for an arrangement with the EU that is worse than the one it currently has. It won't produce anger, but it will produce a begrudging realisation from the outers that the real world is a bit different than the fictitious future that was promised without any substance, only empty promises.

That is your future following an out vote with the added bonus that you will be confined to Little England.

What's the "la la land stuff"?

Don't worry anyway, you'll get your wish. The UK will remain in. Millions more will pour into the UK. Younger generations will continue to be fukced over. But, far outweighing all of that negativity, your advantageous position will be protected.

Tag that onto anything any politician has ever said.

Or salesman, or Estate Agent, or banker, or councillor...pretty much anyone trying to get you to part with your cash

Thats the plan, perma move.

Would be interested to know how many of the 'emigrate to Europe' crowd on here have actually tried this themselves. I suspect some people's ideas about life on the continent might need to be filed under 'la la land' too.

As a young(er) man I lived in Portugal for several years. Absolutely love the place and am lucky enough to have mastered the language so was able to rise above the bar work / low level crime* route that befalls most young Brits in Portugal (and I'd imagine Spain, Greece and other similar places) but, even allowing for the lower cost of living out there (which was rapidly eroded by the Euro) and the vastly superior lifestyle options, it ended up being a real struggle to get by (living in Lisbon area between 2005 and 2011, FWIW, Algarve is more expensive I believe). I had various jobs whilst out there, including what would be considered a graduate level role in the UK in the financial services industry and a marketing job in the food and beverage industry. Salaries were laughably low by uk standards and, after a while, you realise the daily grind of metro trains and rent stress is the same, even if the nightlife is great and the beer cheap.

Most of the well paid work options for Brits seem to be in northern Europe / Scandinavia. A friend had a great job in Amsterdam for a similar period and guess what? Rents were up to 1500 a month for a half decent one/two bedroom flat (if you didn't want to live in one of the many godforsaken grey suburbs/dormitories which ring the Amsterdam/Utrecht conurbation) and lifestyle, to be honest, very similar. The locals would all scoot home at 5 on the dot but, given that most of the employers were UK companies taking advantage of Dutch tax breaks, the same culture of presenteeism was expected of uk staff as back home. Cost of living out there? Don't even ask, a night out can cost a fortune in Amsterdam.

There is a class of person who can make living in the eu work for them very easily though; you guessed it, baby boomers who can live off the cash from their uk hpi and who are pretty much single handedly responsible for a cost of living crisis for Algarve locals as everything from supermarkets to taxi cabs ratchets up the cost to accommodate the hundreds of thousands of docile Brit, German and Dutch expats.

*Nb re Brit crime abroad; read it and weep, middle Englanders, whilst it may be true that freedom of movement has allowed some EU criminals in to the UK, the amount of UK ne'r do wells in places like Lisbon and Faro eeking out a living through begging, small time drug dealing and just generally bumming about and spoiling the place would be a real eye opener if they stepped beyond the golf course or English pub.

Very likely and the worst of both worlds for most people as a result of Cameron's "negotiations" and the "special status".
