Barter For A Home?

Recommended Posts

I just had a thought. A popular argument from the Bulls is that the reason people can't buy is because they spend their money on I-Pods, 4wd, widescreen Plasma Telly, O/S holidays, eating out and booze.

So Why don't we at an auction bid "1 I-pod nano, a 91 Hilux Dual Cab 4wd, my 2'000" plasma (it's a guy thing :lol: ) and ticket to the Orkney Islands, a six pack of Tenants and a curry" if that doesn't get you the house then they are asking to much

Not enough ... you probably need to chuck in a couple of nights with your bird too!

Well seeing as chivalry died on the Titanic ........ It'd be a choice between my family being F$%ked over for 25 years if I paid the current asking price or ... ... ... .. ok that's enough otherwise I'll be thrown out to sleep under the stars tonight

and ticket to the Orkney Islands, ...

Orkney is not so bad! I went there last year for a couple of days. Interesting ancient sites, peace and quiet, sheep, grass, wind and the sea.

Barter for a house, I would be very interested in that.

For instance, can I barter gold with a house? Can I just agree with the seller of a house that he gets my gold, and I get the house without

using any Sterling inbetween? In this case you would get around CGT.

What do companies do when they merge etc... Isn't there sometimes also some sort of barter going on?

I'm no barter or tax expert, though. :lol:

If they are serious about that they really are more stupid than they sound :lol:

I'd tell you to take your gold and stick it where the son don't shine.

Yep, if what they're saying is true it should work. I've always rued the day I spent £300 on an iPod and in doing so denied myself the £80,000 deposit I'd need to afford a house.
