On the other hand. No piccy but passing through Aldershot saw an advertising hoarding from EA Bridges that blasted in garish colour

"Bridges and the Market of Doom" With full themes graphics. "We'll do whatever it takes to sell your property"

it's been posted before but it's still a classic...

I wonder if it's specific to Connells or if every EA in the country has got one but hasn't had the cohones to put it up! ;)

:rolleyes:

Seriously though, could that be construed as financial advice? or misleading advertising?

Worth a call to trading standards I reckon, it looks like financial advice to me.

If this is real it's really bad form. I know these toerags need to make aliving but conning (mainly) young peole into buying at the top of the market (it's still top, IMO) is pretty disgraceful.

Saw this on my wanders yesterday. It was in the window of Connels in Malvern:

IMAG0016.jpg

Nobody heard him, the dead man,

But still he lay moaning:

I was much further out than you thought

And not waving but drowning.

Poor chap, he always loved larking

And now he's dead

It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,

They said.

Oh, no no no, it was too cold always

(Still the dead one lay moaning)

I was much too far out all my life

And not waving

but drowning.

This is a real poster??????????? I've seen this before but I thought it was something that had been photoshopped for a joke.

I am speechless

They don't say when the market will recover, and so the advertising could be seen as 'correct'

small print: market may not recover

It doesn't specifically offer advice to take a mortgage on either, however the reality is most people need a mortgage. It appears to be quite cleverly worded, however factually wrong it may be.

reminds me of an advert in my home town when i was growing up....

'Buy a house for 50p' window ad was removed after a bloke walked into the EA, put 50p down on the desk and demanded that the EA gives him his house...

@jaffa : you might want to remove the photo, your visible as a reflection

One of our local estate agents had 'now is the best time to buy' posters and a special promotion weekend a few weeks ago. It closed down last week, the first in our town to go.
