Well Kirsty and Phil have got a really difficult job this week only £850k to spend on 2 properties. How relevant is this programme to the average property buyer!!??

... What a load of old tosh!!

Edit: Kirsty just admitted that they bought their present house at the bottom of the slump and have sold at the top!!

Krusties just told them they are wasting their money on rent. Meanwhile phflop has been looking at a one room flat, smaller than my box room for £220k. Best comedy programme on C4.

Am I the first to say it? Krustie, your ill informed ramblings have nearly cost those two muppets £150k. I really, really would love to be a fly on the wall of THAT EA when he has to tell the vendor.

Oh dear, careless EA's let them know that their bid was £140k higher than the 2nd nearest bid!!

People like these have totally lost sense of the value of money!!!

Here's Kirstie's approach to buying:

K: What's the most you can afford to spend?

Sap: XXX

K:OK, offer that. Or a bit more.

The woman is a joke, and in this instance, her 'advice' has cost this couple 140K.

Two words spring to mind. Ha and Ha.

Classic - Tender guide price £450k

Kirsty starts negotiations asking if the vendor would sell private and talks couple into considering offer arond £600k, vendor insists on going to tender.

No doubt lead bt Kirsty's advice they submit bis over £600k :o

They then get letter from dumb EA who lists other bids and they find out they bid £140k above next nearest bid, Thanks for the advice Kirsty :lol:

Another gem: "They are obviously canny investors who can spot an opportunity".

Why? because they bought a house in London 12 years ago at the market price. Of course, they KNEW it would triple in value.

Just to prove it, they offer £140k over the nearest bid on their country house. :lol:

After 9 months of that sh!t I would tell krusty n phil to f off. They already nearly cost them £140K and are no closer to getting them somewhere to live and are a complete liability. Shame those idiot buyers got let of the hook! Wouldn't like to be the EA that did that one.

Possibly the EA was an honest sort who couldn't bear to see someone so badly ripped off? Or "Hereward" (WTF??) bribed the EA.....on hearing they were successful in getting the house, my first thought was, "they must feel like they've overpaid".

With their negotiating skills perhaps the spewsome twosome should retrain as hostage negotiators. Think of all the wonderful cost & time savings when you're guaranteed the hostages get executed every time. :)

Apparently Slither show Phils wife & their agent are up the duff as well as Krusty, a better case for mass sterilisation I cannot think of.

Phil- It's a buyer's market and everyone knows that :)

That's why they they offer £140k above the market value, and needed to buy the house before the spring bounce!

Phil still's a bull most of the time with bear tendencies.

please understand kirsty and phil are no more property developers/dealers than a polish immigrant is a good thing for the uk economy.

in the antique trade these are your miller price guide readers, in the car trade there the people that buy glasses guide and think they know the price of a car, in retail there the people that buy from online wholesalers that sell crap to ebay sellers that know jack shit.

The best dealers are them that deal in everything that they can get cheap whenever its houses or a job lot of beds or a container load of towel. if its cheap they buy it if its not they dont.

Thet dont sit looking at future fundementals they buy today to sell today.Property has become the new antiques, i worked in london auction houses in the late 80s as a valuer and becuase of the spin sourrounding it with the antique road show ect, the market hit a peak, this market has not recovered since then and were talking 20 years.It is hype leading the market like what happened to stamps or victorian furniture, i can buy a 1870 chest of draweres now cheaper than i could in the 80s.

housing was the new thing, its over.

The trasition is grabbing what will be next

weve had

double glazing

damp proofing

classic cars

stamps

coins

internet stocks

and every single one had its boom, and now every single one can be purchased cheaper than 20 years ago.

houses is next

It is absolutely crazy and insane to buy a property during a crash when property prices are expected to be falling or languishing at the bottom for many years.

Unless you want to buy a home. Don't forget that many STRs want a home, not necessarily an investment.

My 2p.

What the HELL are you talking about!!!

If you want someone to pay for your healthcare and pension you had better hope those polish immigrants keep coming.

Oh. hang on. An auction house valuer from the late 1980's, isn't that the equivalent of a 22 yr old mini driving foxtons estate agent from 2004?..

Still please let me know where I can get my double glazing and damp proofing cheaper than in 1986, sounds like a bargin ;)

your right a auction valuer in the 80s is eqivelent to your foxtons bod today, its all about catching the wave.

and dg and damp proofing are cheaper now than in the 80s

dg was the big thing then and there was everyone getting the new windows and doors, but now everyone and his dog is doing double glazing but only as a sideline as the market crashed and half the companies went bust becuase of the competition.and the same with damp proofing,one company that issued the insurance backed certificates used to have the market sewing up as this is the only company the mortgage companies reconised, now however there are a load of them, and like dg everyone and his dog is doing it.

everything has its day is my point, the ebb and flow of hype, like the dot com boom ect, it became the turn of housing and it has now past.

Now the time is to find the next great thing ahead of the pack

I don't know about damp-proofing and double glazing, and I don't think there were internet stocks 20 years ago, but I do know about classic cars - and in the particular specialist area a friend of mine works in (absolutely top-end - think prices starting at ca £60k going up to over £3m) cars are selling for much the same number that they were selling for at the top of the market in 1988/89. So a car that sold then for £260k is now back to about £240k, on a good day, and cars that sold for £550k are pushing the £500k bracket.

So yes, in some areas at least homeless is right.

to be fair to you, I wasn't really in the market for dg and damp proofing back then so I can't really comment. I just found it surprising, having said that - well aware of the classic car prices bubble though.
