I Don`t Think There Will Be A House Price Crash

Recommended Posts

As much as I would like to see one I don`t think we will have a house price crash like we did in the early 90s.Although the prices seem to have stopped going up ,they don`t seem to be sliding down that much either. I had the opportunity to buy a house in the mid 90s when compared to today houses were dirt cheap,I didn`t because I was not prepared to be a slave to any bank who would demand their money every month in sickness and in health. Prices being what they are today I would be taking on an incredible debt just so I could have somewhere to live,no thanks,if that means I will never be a home owner on these shores so be it.I work with people who have huge mortgages and it seems to me their total existance is just to service their debts,they cannot afford to take a day off work,they seem scared of losing their jobs ,their lives are well and truely intertwined with the daily rat race that is London and the southeast of England.That is not living that is a penance of which I want no part.Good luck to those who have made fortunes out of property or have their own house that has trebled in value,but remember one thing enjoy it while you can as their are no pockets in a shroud.

My dad says that he would never have bought a house (in the 60s) if it meant over stretching themselves. My mum said they had no more idea of going to the moon than buying a house when they got married. They only got the opportunity because my dad got a job with a bank that came with a fixed rate mortgage for the entire duration of the mortage and it was at something like 0.5%. Dad also says that all that happens is you spend your life struggling to pay the mortgage and then someone else gets it. So I don't see the point in getting yourself into crippling debt just to say on your death bed that all you did with your life was buy a house. At the end of the day it's just something you either do or you don't. As long as you're happy that's the most imortant thing. You don't need a house to do that.

well in the uk you do. without this status symbol you are dirt. you cant expand your family. cant move to another town for another job. your locked in. trapped. enslaved. like vietnamise fighting for the last us embassy helicopter in 1974. kicking and punching for even the chance to put one foot into the zone.

and then they offer failed pensions and failing hospitals. falling pound and envoro muck ups.

all the while labour mps and news staff hold nice property portfolios.

never has this country been so selfish, so individual and so greedy.

theres no british spirit. or even any other spirit here anymore.

all i see on tv is property porn, vested news reports and credit adverts.

whats the state of the union ?

I know a very well heeled lady who has just put their "barn conversion" on the market because they can't afford the utility bills. It's worth £475 (yeah right) but we will take £440 because we want something smaller and more homely - again yeah right, they bit off more than they could chew, he's the main bread winner and self employed, they are 2 months away from repossession, may or may not keep their heads above water.

Went to a friends for dinner last night, she's split up with her boyfriend, 2 kids, she works 16 hours a week, they have a £90k mortgage, she can't pay it. At the moment ex boyfriend is paying the mortgage but for how long ?

The signs are left right and centre once you start looking.

Anyone wishing to sign themselves up for 25 years of drudgery paying bills ,worrying about loss of income,keeping fingers crossed that your house goes up in value,getting the latest fitted kitchen ,the latest style of car,get your wife to pick your kids up from school in the mandatory 4x4,roll up and get yourselves a mortgage and become the latest British home owner clone fresh off the production line,you will fit in well in modern Britain,the goverment needs more of you ,all working paying taxes ,paying the bank a mammoth amount every month ,feeding the system,which will fleece you of every available penny you have through a system which will actively wage a war of aggression against your house and your car in the form of taxes ,bills and penaltys for parking and speeding,all so the next generation will live better and enjoy the fruits of your labour.Any takers?

Home buyers flock to joint-purchase website

Since it opened for business a month and a half ago, more than 1,500 people have signed up to join a website that pairs up strangers for the purpose of buying property together, its founder says.

The demand for the services of Sharedspaces.co.uk reveals the unusual measures Britons are prepared to take to buy flats and houses at a time when prices have reached record highs............
