Alison Cork: "my House Price Crash Fears"

Recommended Posts

Column on Orange's website from an ITV 'property expert' (I have no TV reception where I live, so I'm really out of the loop on these things and have no idea if she's famous or not!) about a potentital crash. It's mostly anecdotal, chatty fluff as opposed to an economic study. However, it was the front page story on www.orange.co.uk when I last looked, and it's three pages devoted to the potential for a crash. Interesting to see the C word in a headline anyway.

Read the piece here.

Something’s definitely not right – I can just feel it in my waters. All it would take now is an act of terrorism, threat of war or just an unexpected economic tremor, and the house of cards (indeed, the price of houses) could tumble.

If i said that 2 years ago I would be laughed at as a dooooooooooom monger!

Many would still laugh today. Funny how laughing is so close to crying!

A good piece in that it doesn't batter you with stats - shame it's only on the Orange website.

Decent set of t*ts, which will of course give her quite a bit of credibility, I certainly will take notice.

And women call us guys shallow but what do they know anyway.

"Another famous saying offers a word of warning for potential buyers: “When you look on the horizon and see too many cranes, you can be sure a property crash is soon to follow”.

I ve not heard that one before.

Nice find.

This is the first wave of people who want to be in the so called smart money. Where have these people been?? This website has been warning people for over 2 years!

Of course 2 years ago you would have been wrong in retrospect and buying then would have netted a profit today. This shows once more, you can't possibly accurately call when it all comes down. It may take another 18 months, or perhaps this summer, or 4 more years....

By your reckoning then, Dolly Parton will be the gal with the most noteworthy opinions! :rolleyes:

My father used to say this. But he worked in a zoo??

It's mostly pidgeons around our hood.

Some of these celebrity crash pundits are using pretty obscure theories.

The thing is, its much easy to sell into a strong rising market [i.e. just before the froth], than to sell in a flat or falling market [there may be no buyers].

There are properties around the 800K mark where I am which have not sold in two years.

He didn't necessarily say it was going to be her opinions he was going to take notice of, mind.

I NEARLY bought two years ago, and may have made a "profit" by now, but of course, a profit is only a profit when you sell. I wasn't buying for profit, and my 1150pcm mortgage payments would have been fixed for two years at 4.5%.

I'm glad i'm not coming off my fixed deal now with all that "profit"

My neighbours must think that also. Their house did not sell at £695 for the last two years now it's on for £750, you could not make it up!

Obviously they have missed out on the last two years 'growth'.

:lol:

No TV? Where the f*ck do you live?

Believe it or not, in central Brighton, but right between two hills and between two transmitters, neither of which can deliver TV to my house. I also have a dodgy landlord who's trying to run the whole street (which he owns) off a single TV aerial. I can't even cut the cable in the loft and install my own aerial as it would cut off the rest of the street! No cable in my road either. However, we've found that we can pick up Channel 4 (just about) if we watch it through the video, as the video seems to act like an antenna of some sort.

To be honest, I've found that my life's actually much more fun without it anyway :)

What is this TV of which you speak? Amongst listen again wireless programmes, podcasts and t'internet how can you find time to sit down and stare at a small box without moving for hours on end?

Yeah, great jugs and a quick glimpse of her shaven oyster and she'll be a regular Warren Buffet.

Could be a close relation to the skyscraper curse.

The real world?

There's always Kayla Kupcakes or Melonie Mounds...

Or Chesty Morgan.
