Hpc Awards

Recommended Posts

I think we should start the HPC Awards. An annual event to recognise true Property Experts and Honest Companies involved in the Housing Market. We could also have an equivalent Villans award for the worst vested interests.

First up, the Best Property Proffesional Award:

I'd nominate Andrew Winter from Selling Houses for being one of those rare things, an honest Estate Agent. He has the balls to tell clients exactly why their houses are not selling, be that either because they are overpriced, or they are complete dumps. He also has the kahonas to stand up on the TV and be honest about the state of the housing market both here and abroad, flying in the face of the (prices can only go up) Vested Interests who sponsor Channel 4 property shows.

Examples from last nights show:

'Prices on the coast (of Spain) have already fallen by 20%'.

'It's been a buyers market for the last two years in the UK'.

Any other nominations, or ideas for other awards?

Can't imagine many property professionals wanting a trophy with "House Price Crash" stamped across it. <_<

Irish guy from How to be a property developer is also very realistic and honest.

Gets my vote.

TB

Are you aware that most of these guys have press packs and representatives who will pin their sales to any mast and allow it to be navigated by the paymaster if it pays well? They`re not the messiahs, they are all very naughty boys.. :P

When the crash comes EVERYONE will want one. The nominations will coming flooding in, who saw it coming, who was the first to call the crash, who survived the crash the best. It will be like the Oscars. We could name it the HPC T'Oscars. My nominate TTRTR as BTL Landlord of the Year.

I'd like to nominate Merryn Somerset Webb - editor of MoneyWeek.

I read her articles and Sunday Times column and she's both bearish and bloody smart!

I'd like to propose there's a 'Best newspaper column' award and she wins it!

Occasionally I disagree with her perspective but its at least hers is generally a well argued point.

I agree, she put out well thought through articles.

How about BBC & Foxton's for 'Best Reality TV Housing Show' :D ?

Whoever the journalist was should get the award. I wonder if the BBC has fired her--and her producer?
