I Am No Longer Sure If A Crash Will Happen

Recommended Posts

Oh dear! I can't believe this!! I have seen this many times. When someone does not go along with your views of an inevitable crash, you all jump on them, accusing them of being a troll, an investor, even an estate agent. Why? Why am I not allowed to ask sincere questions and hold a different view to you without being accused or targetted?

plenty of posters come on here with different views to me but i don't call them a troll - they say what they mean directly - they argue the bull case (mis-guided as it may be) - you came on here all coy and innocent

can anyone remember the name of that other troll whose first or second post referred to 'cream rising to the top' before implying he was the cream? - i have a feeling it's that one reincarnated

I think its time to stop hoping for a crash, and start making other plans to buy. What do you guys think?

Yep, I've been thinking this for a while. Is it ever going to happen?

A perceptive quote from the good old book "Faith deferred makes the heart sick"; there are a lot of heart-sick people on here. I share some stuff I have come across recently that has restored my faith. Some of it is US stuff, but no matter, this property boom is global. The first link is a video, which you have to watch to the end, or you won't get it.

Check out the third graph on this page, to scare you witless.

And this great article, posted to day by 'dohousescrashinthewoods' (Most excellent!) Makes you realise how much the media are in the pockets of the governments and the rich. They don't care about us, they use the media for their own ends. This article sums it up, you need to skip down to the heading "This weeks theme - Disconnect from reality" and read on. We are constantly soothed by the media, to keep us sweet.

I think things are much, much worse that we can possibly imagine.

I am new to this chat board, but I have been reading the boards for the past 3 years.

I have held out for a crash, saved up a good deposit, but I an getting tired of paying dead money by renting.

I am starting to wish I had brought in 2004 and am now thinking it would be a good time to buy because I cannot see a crash happening. Even with all the bad news, economic wise, prices are still going up, rather than crashing.

Reads like an excerpt from the "Junior Trolls Book of Hackneyed Clichés".

C'mon you trolls, put a bit of originality into it.

Otherwise we might think you were losing heart. :P

So when you spend money on anything that isnt something you can keep as an asset it is dead money?

food

socialising

holidays

MORTGAGE INTEREST

This country has gone bonkers how its addicted to home ownership and been slaves to banks on 30 year loans.

I notice that a lot of the original posters on this forum have disappeared. I have been reading this forum since 2003 possibly 2002. In late 2002 I thought prices would dive. I had a choice, keep my property and rent it out, or sell it and sell my other house also and buy a large detached for £180K.

My view was the market was overvalued and I would sell the house and live in my shared ownership house until the crash had finished and prices were again reasonable. So thats what I did. So you can see how frustrated I am now that almost 5 more years have gone by and all I've seen are rising prices to even higher levels. I don't even want to work out how much I've 'lost' by selling the house for £90K in 2002. I'm guessing it would be worth £150K now.

The only thing I can do is keep holding on - as I've lost so much by half STRing and to carry on with this stategy. I could never buy now, especially now prices are even more insane than in 2002. My choice was in hindsight wrong, but i can't take the risk and have to see it through to this crash that will without a doubt, one day, eventually happen.

This site only really took off mid-2004 when i joined from the old forum, site was started in oct 2003. So how does 2002 enter the equation? :huh:

Also, hpi in my area hasnt really budged since early 2004, infact it has dropped around 10%. London's a different kettle of fish though.
