Kirstie And Phil: Where Best To Invest, The Analysis

Recommended Posts

Belive it or not, I actually missed the "Dull Duo" crapping on for an hour last night, deperately trying to kick start more BTL mugs/wanabees.

So what beads of wisdom did we get apart from the usual "buy near a University" gem ?

Were their figures right ? Were quoted yields assuming property prices go up at 10% per annum for ever ?

I didn't see it either. Went to the gym instead - far healthier! Surely they're not still suggesting people buy near universities? Have they not tracked what's happening? More students staying at home, more universities developing student accommodation. Students will go for the cheapest and nicest option available to them and that is certainly not going to be some crappy BTL run by a greedy landlord.

Agreed! Especially with the debts students are seeing others get into. They will wise up and try and get through Uni as cheaply as possible!

The programme made my blood boil, and yet at the same time made me laugh hysterically. Totally ridiculous projections based on pure fantasy. Prices will rise by 40, 50, even 60% by 2010 accoring to a survey by VestedInterestGreedyLyingTossers & Sons.

Apparently house prices in the major cities will rocket by 2010 because the population is increasing and there are students everywhere?!?!? Phil made sure to remind you to do your homework, yet, no mention was made that their laughable predictions MAY BE WRONG.

If prices are going to rocket even more, who will buy? All those immigrants on the minimum wage?

All those penniless students?

It was like a Gordon Brown monologue - they forgot to mention several things:

Unemployment is rising - even public sector jobs are going

The house market has been in limbo for 18 months, what will make it rocket?

Builders and Retailers are already reporting early signs of a recession.

I saw a programme like this about 12 months ago, the same tripe was spouted then. Since then, the market has done NOTHING, ZILCH, ZERO. They are appealing to greed and avarice. Desperately trying to keep this ailing market alive. REJOICING IN HIGH HOUSE PRICES. I HOPE THEIR KIDS (HEAVEN FORBID THAT THESE DISGUSTING CREATURES PRO-CREATE) LIVE A POVERTY STRICKEN MISERBALE EXISTENCE!!!!!!!!

Am I the only one who would pay to go and see Kirsty and Phil publicly flogged?

Yes, but only because I saw a shot of Phil in the bath. :D

As to the rest, I only watched the last 5 minutes and yes it was a pile of. I couldnt help smiling at the way

they had to add ' might rise' or ' are predicted to rise', as opposed to 'will rise'. It struck me as an addition

to the original script due to legal restrictions ( those pesky lawyers).

Well I was watching it between bits of the Arsenal game last night - I was thrilled to see them tell me how great a place Edinburgh is to buy - I was hoping they were going to try to inflate some of the really crappy bits (Pilton etc.) but instead they stuck to a 2 bedroom flat (round the corner from me I can only presume) just add a wall and put in a third bedroom and you will be sorted aparently.... gits, another FTB totally priced out here once all the Muppets arrive....

My favourite section of the show was the brief spell they mentioned the top 10 "worst" places in Britain - god forbid aparently property can go down in value! - too many new builds and FTB's priced out of the market (how thoughtless of them to allow themselves to be priced out) have lead to falls in some areas.

oh yes and the bit where Krusty was saying that she didnt think her children would be able to ever afford a place (and of course neither will your own children) the implication being that any responsible parent (or even if you might think about having kids in a few years time) had to buy BTL properties or what hope will their/your chilldren have - that is what she was doing.

in fact they set the whole thing up to make people think that they were fools if they didnt have 20 BTL properties - what about the poor sods (like myself) who havn't a hope in hell of buying one place let alone 20 others to make me a millionaire - sorry starting to rant. A letter to Channel 4 and OFCOM may be required. <_<

Post show analysis

They bang on about how the last 10 years how property done compared to other investments - FACT

They admitt prices have fallen - FACT

They say prices from now may increase approx 48% in some places - FICTION (what most of the show was about)

so most of it was fantasy - a bit like a lesbian porn film :o
