Renters Answer Me One Question


Recommended Posts

When you walk/drive down the street.

How many houses cry out to you to be a home. How many have a nice garden that you could enjoy the coming summer in, or the house despite its many faults, just says you. How many would would be a relaxing safe haven for you, a place to truely call home.

Every single day you must pass hundreds of them. How many do you look at and think this?.

Every single day you must pass hundreds, it must be killing you.

Go on be honest. Tell the investment appraisal lot to f*** **f and the 'place to call a home' is the most single important factor to you, and its killing you.

A stupid purchase does not provide a relaxing safe haven.........

BTW, I think this is yet another Bruno post..........On another thread he is posting as Charlotte. He uses many monikers

This is girly talk! If you're wanting to take the pi55 then you're pushing the wrong buttons for a lot of posters on this site.

We're not all cozy little homebodies you know! Your words make squirm with embarrassment.

This sentence is the reason why your analysis doesn't apply to me. I look at houses and think "what a load of over priced tosh". I can honestly say that the last thing I would want to do is buy one because I know that I wouldn't be sitting there thinking how safe and relaxing it is. Instead I'd be sitting there working out how I could afford to do anything other than just sit there and fret about how I was going to keep up the mortgage payments.

None at all, as I can only afford to rent a cramped drafty house in a street-full of cramped drafty houses slowly becoming converted into bedsits by BTL Rachman-types to cater to a growing mass of impoverished people.

If I were to buy I could live somewhere much, much worse.

My options are 'go back in time and be born five years earlier and afford a half-decent 3 bed semi with only modest financial stress', 'experience extreme financial stress buying any old crap', 'go somewhere marginally cheaper and face a huge traffic-jammed commute' or 'wait and see if prices crash'.

So, no, there's no 'temptation to buy' here, although, yes, I admit to the troll that renting is pretty dire for several reasons.

I used to think this, and pissed away a fortune on renting at the time whilst worrying.

I'll answer this one. None. I see houses that I like, but they aren't up for sale. When they do come up for sale they are ridiculously overpriced.

I didn't like renting at first, but that was because we were renting something we wouldn't consider buying as it was too small. Now we have a huge, smart family home in a good area. Happy renters here.

This is your only outlet to attempt to annoy people (bullied at school, I expect)

How sad.

:lol:

You really think people on here are as thick as yourself don't you? Pathetic... <_<

Everyday I walk/drive past hundreds of houses, and think to myself, massive debt, massive debt, nice car (nicer than the house) -> MEW -> massive debt...

A home is what you make of it, whether it's rented or purchased does not guarantee happiness, especially if it's a dive that you can ill-afford...

You're starting to make a tit of yourself now btw...

Denial. Owning is renting is many respects with control of your environment as at least the most important factor although fixed repayment with inflation wages, capital growth etc i'm sure ranks up there.

It is interest though how this type of trolling has increased massively in the last couple of weeks. If I remember rightly this also happened in 2005 when the market was cooling. If this really is the beginning of a protracted downturn you can expect this type of trolling to continue increasing.

All incouraging stuff really.

That is where we are different then. I'm not pissing away my fortune, I have been able to save a large sum of money by having the flexibility to move around the country with career building opportunities. I've not been worrying about it either. I'm comfortable in the knowledge that economic cycles are cycles for a reason and that in time the housing market will come full circle.

To be honest its a very small percentage

I rent a 750K house for half the price of buying it at todays prices

The majority of houses I pass are not as good - plus its a huge house by UK standards and a maintenance/DIY nightmare for the owner (which isn't me - thank f*ck for that!)

Sorry, can someone translate this for me? I'm sure it is not written in English.
