Estate Agent Went Home Early - Possible Housing Crash

Recommended Posts

I saw an estate agent go home early from the pub last night - having read the posts on this site I've learnt to deduce from this information that he is short of money therefore not selling any houses at all - this obviously means that next year prices will plummet back to pre war levels.

So, I now intend to sell up and rent a dingy, rat infested hovel for the next ten years and then, with all the money I've saved, buy a large Surrey mansion set in 10 acres for around £20K (although I may haggle it down a bit).

:)

Or you could rent a place twice the size using the interest on the money you make. :D

Nah! I won't bother - I think I like owning a place to which I can do what I want - it's called quality of life!

Cor paid off your mortgage entirely! lucky g*t

I guess I am :)

Anyway, must dash and genuinely wish all you FTBers all the best in your search for a home. As for the STR's well, you took a gamble and so far have lost - please don't winge.

Judging by your username and piccie I'd hazard a guess that you aren't old enough to have a home to call your own let alone a mortgage.

Although there's an idea. Mortgages for schoolkids. Get them on the property ladder early. You know it makes sense!

Good luck in your exams by the way. Those GCSEs will prove very useful when you need that job in McDonald's.

Nope..

Well done..

Maybe he thought his luck was in, being eyed up all night from across the bar.

When you didn't make a move he must have decided to cut his losses and leave.

Paying of a mortgage faster then any with a mortgage can be achieved when prices are falling this fast

In that case leave the UK.. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

The avarage citizen in (let's say) Japan lives better than the vast majority in the UK (property owners or not).. Ditto Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Belgium, Singapore, Hong Kong...
