Coming up soon on programme....

:unsure:

Hmmm. " signs of cooling off, but it's not all bad news." (Some chap sold his house within 24 hours) Yeah right, how much of a drop did he take. I wonder?

Oh right so it is bad news that house prices are cooling, huh? Bad news for whom?

"Ill winds..." and all that.

I know someone who has just sold there house for the full asking price despite all that has gone on. They only had one viewing in several weeks they just got lucky and caught someone with very thick skin who was very keen on their house. Significant anecdotal falls will be discussed long before any of these VI reports show the slightest sign of weakness. People have been so well conditioned it will take a while for them to wake from their drunken slumber to realise the last 5 years at least have been a farce.

Caught something on this morning on BBC.

Had a chap saying things like: "...this estate agent has had a 25% volume in business BUT PRICES WON'T CRASH, this couple are unable to sell their house BUT PRICES WON'T CRASH.... " and so on.

Nice to see some reasoned analysis there <_<

Really does make the BBC look like some kind of public information film of state-propaganda.

The whole package was laughable. They'd sent out their man to put together a damage limitation piece, fearing the worst.

BUT , surprise-surprise, somebody else had already done a damage limitation excercise on the stats long b4 yer-man-on-the-spot got to see them.

Unfortunately for the powers that be, the tone of his package was already baked-in, leaving the correspondent little choice but to end with "so not all bad news then", when, as far as the VIs were concerned, it was ALL good news! :lol:

The net affect was the same as somebody shouting, "Don't panic!"

how could it possibly? I mean there's no relationship between loose lending practices and increasing money supply by the odd two trillion or so and house prices...is there? It's demand from immigrants that push up house prices from the bottom rung all the way to Knightsbridge, we all know that :lol:

This evening's report seems to be suggesting that the BofE needs to cut rates as the housing market is showing signs of a reduction in HPI :rolleyes:.

Julia Caesar just pointed out that "Despite all that speculation of a house price slowdown, it looks like prices are still rising, the market shrugged off the credit turmoil of recent weeks and prices rose 0.7%........". She sounded really happy bless her :lol:.

Saw this, message was prices aren't going to crash.

Will they crash or wont they >?

:> Well, put it this way, if no beggar is buying and the credit crunch makes mortgages more expensive. It doesnt sound like a bright spark idea to be touch bricks and mortar. That ship has sailed/
