Property Chicken Anyone?

Recommended Posts

OK, I can't be the only one here getting bored of this.

So, to pass the time I reckon we should play property chicken.

The idea is to buy a house and try and sell it before it all goes t1ts up.

Just imagine the adrenalin rush as you're trying to complete as your mind works day and night to convince you the market is about to go down the pan. Or just as the headlines proclaim the end of the world, one after the other, along comes Gordie to give it one last nudge and allow you escape by the skin of your teeth.

It would at least pass the time until something actually really happens in 2073. :huh:

Let's buy the same property and keep selling it to each other for 10% more, first one to refuse to buy is the loser.

You could do the reverse... which would, actually, be funny. If you demanded a council tax re-evaluation, it would be hilarious.

We both start with £500K properties... and we exchange for £250K (costs is simply the cost of conveyancing) and simultaneously enter into a binding contract to exchange again in a month.

Wait a month (we could charge each other fair value rent, and pay income tax on our earnings - don't want to commit fraud...)

We sell each other the properties we used to own for £125K.

The savings on council tax after re-banding should be enough to offset the solicitors' fees...

In case you hadn't noticed, stamp duty is not 31p for 1st class...it's a bit more and might ruin your game. Actually, ruins mine as well...maybe not, in my version the house will no doubt have doubled in price during the process. Could actually be a pro sport before too long.

The game many people have played has been more similar to pass-the-parcel.

The only trouble is, it's not much fun now that the music's stopped.

That sounds more like property musical chairs, I've got a better game its called estate agent baiting, view several homes, put offers in then withdraw them 6 weeks later.
