What Cr4p Advice

Recommended Posts

Guest grumpy-old-man

watching "HomeUnder the Hammer" this morning,

pub landlord buys a house at auction, one he had not intended to buy......you want to know his advice on why he bought (a good tip apparantly):

he saw 2 women bidding for it :blink:

his logic was that women are normally more financially astute & if it's good enough for them.........

he bought without seeing it to add to his portfolio :rolleyes:

I am seeing this all the time on these types of programs, is this a measure of the standard of the new BLT "managers" ?

Well, I do think its a tad unfortunate for you to attack managers of Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sarnies. There are other sandwich managers more open to attack, in my view. For instance, managers of ham salads. :P:lol:

One I Hded featured a member of the "financially astute" gender. Here are the figures for the development:

DEVELOPMENT COSTS : £100,000

ESTATE AGENTS FINAL ESTIMATE : £98,000

Let's just forget how much she paid for th eplace to begin with shall we! :lol:

Presenter: "So what's next for you."

Developer: "I plan to start a new dev in ....." :o

.... can anyone really say they have proof of a gender-specific advantage when it comes to financial awareness?

have you seen the cracks in the place, the front of the house is falling off :lol:

EA reckons normal for the age of the property, so why havn't the rest of the street moved the same way then........

I can understand buying a new build off plan or without seeing it but a 100 year old property.....NO WAY

I was only watching (on dual speed) it until the part with the auction (as you had mentioned it) so I could have a good laugh. I aint wasting a whole hour of my life on that tripe.
