Anne Ashworth Changing Her Tune

Recommended Posts

These journalists are the greatest hindsight commentators ever. No doubt in 2 years she will be telling everyone how she saw this coming. How did this country promote such financially illiterate individuals such as Ashworth and Allslap into positions where they voice their flawed and dangerous opinions to the public?

Marketing. If you can market yourself and present a convincing (but not necessarily accurate) argument you will get a job as an "expert." Marketing involves selling what people want to buy. People wanted a property miracle and people like Allsoppy and Ashworthless came along with their bright smiles and enormous.....attributes which appealed to the senses of the listeners.

Beware of thsoe who market themselves.

The Easter weekend is traditionally the time when the housing market gets a spring in its step. This year the only people who will not be hesitant are those fearless investors who believe in buying before you see the light at the end of the tunnel

Aah, that lovely spring bounce. The spring bounce can only happen if it's got a nice solid foundation to bounce off. This srping it's going to crash through the woodworm ridden floor. It's really going to be such a shock to her when the bounce doesn't happen. I wonder what she's going to write them?

So, lets see. She's saying:

- Massive undersupply of your times-readers style properties in London;

- This credit crunch issue is only really applicable to city financial high flyer people;

- The ordinary man on the street has a nice hefty dose of equity available to ride anything out;

- Everyone who's buying has stacks of cash under the carpet that they are buying with, so no chance of falls there then;

- Sellers are happy to wait over a year in order to sell up their property.

And perhaps the largest misunderstanding of all, sub-prime "IS SPREADING" everywhere???? WTF? It IS everywhere, you dozy mare. What is happening is that more and more people are getting found out that theuy have a nice big wodge of it in their cupboards.

How on this lovely green earth can she not understand that if there is less credit available (mortgages), then the price of houses HAS to drop to match that availablility of money??? It's the old Ferrari syndrome again. There is the demand for lovely houses, but if the money ain't there, it ain't happening.

A total muppet.

Ugh. This article makes my skin crawl. Look at the headline. Quite clever really - it's trying to get across the complicated message that yes, prices are falling, and this is a good thing, but they're not falling so much that all properties will be affected. So she's trying to reassure buyers and sellers at the same time! The article also ends oddly with a few column inches spare, almost as if she couldn't think of anything more to say...

Unfortunately some of us (sole traders) are obliged to market ourselves... Even those of us not selling snake oil.

The spring bounce 'will' happen, prices will bounce off the ceiling and head downward.

As I've said before -- the VI Spin Machine will be working full-steam ahead -- they won't give up.... Now the spin is -- it's all been a plot....
