Why Buy?

Recommended Posts

Hey... What fool would want to buy today? When all the graphs, statistics & evidence are telling you to watch and wait...Bide your time, save and accumulate.

House prices are well over valued compared to the average persons income, and the cost of maintaining a few bricks.

Not forgetting the infelexability of owning, and the risk of having an asset worth less than what you paid for it!! Is a Major disadvantage.

Freedom is not only the right to use your judgment, but the obligation to live with the consequences ;)

Ever since Thatcher made home ownership a reality, its now embedded into our psyche to get on the property ladder.

A fool and his money are easily parted.

lets all buy caravans for now.

Don't knock caravans, if in the right location, can be better than a high rise new build box in a city centre.

Choice, not chance, determines destiny. ;)

Let the BTL's take the Strain and when they start to Pain, others will know they are on the way to making a Gain.

Indeed. It's the second part of that sentence that seems to have fallen out of favour in this country.

Bart,

I could go on but it never ceases to amaze me how people don't consider the consequences of their actions, be it:

- Spending what they haven't got.

- Buying what they cannot afford.

- living a life that they think we want, with money they haven't earned.

What you don't owe won't hurt you. ;)
