More British Ex-pats Forum Classic Quotes

Recommended Posts

Classic quote:

I see Darling hasn't raised stamp duty from 125 k ( ours on market for 135k).

More socialist failure...get me out of here..

That's right because if Darling had raised stamp duty to £140k then you would have sold your house! :lol: Try lowering it below £125k, in fact in six months time it will be worth £90k anyway! Idiots! :lol:

Just put house on with a new EA and reduced by 10k. Im hoping itll go at Easter so OH can come back to Oz to be with me and girls.

That's right I'm sure you'll shift it in one week with a meesly £10k cut! :lol:

And this one's class...

Poster 1: "Good luck to everyone, shame the Budget did not bring more house buying encouragement."

Poster 2: "but it did. By saying that the enconomy is stable enough to withstand the global economic slow down, he is basically saying that stuff that has happened abroad (usa) will not have as much impact here as first thought. Meaning that house prices are not going to fall as much as first thought (because people keep forgetting that there is still a housing shortage and the recent floods means people are looking for houses that are on safe ground and are willing to pay for that peace of mind.) and that the slow down in the housing market is not that much different from the normal peaks and falls for the time of year. Yes there are people who still have trouble getting on the houseing ladder in the first place, but that does not mean that eveything will grind to a halt, and that is nothing new. Chin up!. it's not as bad as everyone thinks and it could be a hell of a lot worse."

:lol::lol::lol:

S/he is actually clinging onto the words of that lying muppet and hoping things will get better!

Just reduce your prices, you muppets!!!

Most of these people will be back home within 2 years. They just ain't got what it takes to emigrate judging by their posts.

I agree, it's as if people think they have an inherent right for the "value" of their properties to increase by £50,000 per year and that FTBers should have an inherent right to limitless cheap and easily available credit so they can purchase their properties for any price they see fit! :rolleyes:

Still, I suspect that a number of HPCers have gone on there to tell them that we are now in the early stages of a severe house price crash. They shout you down as a "troll" instantly, but it is mightily good fun! :lol: *

* I know I should get out more, but I am off work this week and it provides me with entertainment!

Rather you than me.

I am here in Australia on holiday, and the number of expats still talking about property is staggering.

Thes people really need a reality check. I can't wait to get back to Germany where no one ever talks about

property because lets face it, the germans don't really care.

Ok, own up - who posted this?

Hi, I am an independant financial advisor and I experienced the last housing crash between 1989-1994. My advice to you all is to accept any offers you get now because in six months to a year you will be wishing you had.

The cheap credit has just been removed after a ten year debt borrowing binge and it will be very, very hard for any first time buyer to get a mortgage as financial institutions are now assessing risk again after letting virtually everyone take a mortgage out (no matter what the salary multiple) during the last few years.

This fraud (by brokers), ramping by Estate Agents and "Property Porn" on BBC/Channel 4 has made home owners falsely believe that property is a one way bet and prices never come down.

I also have have trouble selling my house and I think I am going to have to rent it out. However, crashes sometimes take years until lending restrictions get relaxed again and this could take years.

Please be very careful and don't believe the Vested Interests (that includes members of the government) who would have you believe that the UK is immune from what is now happening in the US. In fact we are at a worse disadvantage than the Americans as our property bubble is TWICE as big as theirs!

You think they're stupid? Selling up now and moving abroad seems a sensible enough plan to me.

Yeah , but the problem is these clowns can't sell , because their houses are so OVER priced that no can afford or wants to buy them , except these squeeling jokers don't seem to understand that .........do you ?

Just got accused of being a troll for saying I thought there was going to be a housing crash!!! :lol:

Rule 4. Trolling on this site is not tolerated. We define trolling as any inflammatory threads or posts that are started with the sole intent of upsetting or antagonizing other members. Anyone found making such posts will be removed from the forums.

Nothing like freedom of speech, hey? It seems like you can post on British Expats as long as you sing the party line. Members just put their fingers in their eyes like little kids and sing because they don't want to hear their Mum and Dad telling them they are grounded! :lol:

The sheeple on this site now actually believe they are going to be rescued by interest rate cuts! :lol:

It looks like the market is begining to pick up finally and alot of you have viewings so good luck fopr them, lets hope for some offers.

Well the couple who put an offer in on our house are still excited, she has just been to say there is meant to be another intrest rate drop over easter so do we mind waiting for an extra week for them to see if they can get a cheaper mortgage. They are going to let me know a date when they want to complete. All in all hopefully everything will be ok and go through.

Any poster who dares offer a contridictary view gets INSTANTLY banned! :ph34r:

Even in our darkest hour on this website when the boom was going mental we allowed opposing views.

They are coming at it from the wrong angle. What they should be saying is:

"...so do we mind waiting for an extra week for them to see if they can get a mortgage at all"!

Britishexpats has a truly bizzare/sad personality cult thing going on. I used to post on there trying to get some facts about our relocation to SF, just a what to expect kind of thing. I was rounded upon by a bunch of sycophantic superior dickheads with too much time and not too much nous. I got told a bunch of information as gospel which I've since found out to be false, yet when you question them they all gang up on you. The regulars there (>15,000 posts) seem to hate anyone who is doing better than them (i.e. better class of Visa).

May they all drown in a sea of mortgage debt :D

"Nutters" - How very dare you!

I've noticed you have had a couple of "Trolls" on this thread. I think you will find they have come from people who have been pointed to this thread from housepricecrash.co.uk There are some intelligent people on that forum, but equally there are out and out utter loons waiting for £300K houses to be £100k in six months time so they can get on the housing market in a nice four bed detached residence. Stick to your guns guys, there will be no House Price Crash.

But the quote specifically says they ARE reducing their asking price. 10k reduction may or may not be enough to sell, but they being realistic and repricing to sell, rather than keeping it and leveraging because "property only goes up" or just holding onto it until the market comes to meet their excess estimation of worth.

If this was the British Expat website then your account would be de-activated after making this comment because you do not agree with the consensus.

Thankfully we have freedom of speech on here.

P.S - I agree with you, £10k is a start but it is hardly being realistic when prices have gone up 300 per cent in the last ten years and 99 per cent of FTB's are simply just priced out of the market.
