The Campaign For Realistic Asking Prices (crap)

Recommended Posts

I'm the founding (and only) member of CRAP - The Campaign for Realistic Asking Prices. Our group has one objective -- to bring house prices back down to an affordable level. It's a positive action group so...in my area (Greater Manchester) I'm going to revalue the most ridiculously overpriced properties and stick a CRAP sign on the 'For Sale' sign. Before I get arrested I would hope to be able to post some evidence.

Wishes of support and donations for paper, pens and sellotape greatly appreciated.

Example attached.

Excellent guerilla tactic, taxmyrs!

What kind of percentage reductions will you recommend?

I'll take Leeds. Make sure your sign has a link to HPC.co.uk.

If the property is vacant your sign should read- "Available to squat"

Lol pmsl. is that sign for real???

Yep hot off the press.

Can we make our own or do we have to be a CRAP member ;) i mean a good CRAP member :P

Yes you can all you need is A4 paper, red and black felt pens and sellotape, but try to keep the text standard. Laminated would be ideal but it will be noticed within hours so wouldn't be worth the effort.

Asswipe serif I think. No not really the red is Castellar and the black is plain Arial black. But doing it by hand will be OK, its not copyrighted yet.

Bring it on! Everyone obviously missed my post about setting up a registered charity - CRAP would be good. Need CRAP t-shirts etc designed for fundraising. TTRTR is going to be our BTL counsellor/specialist. Such as the 2nd home owners 'Association', the CRAP Association can charge half the membership. How about we set up CRAP EA's, CRAP Surveyors, CRAP Mortgage Lenders - CRAP Property Services?

i have to say i am really becoming fond of CRAP. :blink: i think WAL is right,

how hard is it. theres got to be enuff of us

Yep, registered charity is the way to go, so long as all our funds go towards CRAP. Just think how many members we could end with? How we could campaign against government policy and VI spin? Legacies will be left to us by all the FTB's who never quite made it on to the ladder in time, they will donate their deposits to help other future FTB's. Yes, I can see it now. Definitely got to sign up TTRTR for the BTL 24 hour suicide helpline.

Im up for this.

It could become so big that we could sell it on the FTSE in a few years.

Yes indeed, it will be a great day when Crap Floats.... :blink:

We will have to time it right though, buy low, sell high.
