Like paddles I no longer 'get my rocks off' on 3-4% falls. I am waiting for double digits YOY. I have no doubt it will fall hard, but I am thinking this might be stalled so it becomes a depressingly slow train ride into hell by the manipulation of governments. I ahve no doubt that if Cameron wins he will simply pursue the same policies towards the same end - we will just be more forgiving because he couldn't spend 11 years riding the global boom and claiming it as his own (and please remember you can hardly accuse the republicans/conservatives/tories in america of socialism but they are doing precisely the same interventionist rubbish as brown)

But I am thinking that this slide down is going to be a long one because of dicky little government interventions that prolong the pain and postpone the inevitable. In the meantime all of their schemes are in essence tempters to trap people with the least means and from the lowest rungs of society into higher levels of debt than they might have if the market balance doubt, only to benefit the better off and who are selling up to a larger asset.

bah , just increase interest rates to 30% where they belong for a few months, the crash will be over by end of 2009.

the 3-4% falls you read in the press dont relate to the 15-20% happening on the streets how fast do you want it to happen?

Well I would like to go away for the weekend and come back and be able to buy a modest 2 bed terrace in the reasonable street locally for about 50K, give up my current job and work in a shop or something.

Fret ye not... Double digit YOY is coming, though much effort is being put into avoiding and publishing said drop, even the most vested of VI's are already softening the sheeple up for "THE BIG WHAMMY"!

Land reg figures lag big time and are still easily manipulated, but 18mnth from now no one will see property as a one way bet it once was.

Just look at the mortgage approval figures.. and many of those where agreed 12 months previous.....DING DING DING!

Tried that. Didn't get the job! (Sob!)

You need a modern degree, to give you the edge in the Supermarket job market.

I've got a modern degree with 1st class honours - I thought that would be enough - although its about 15 years old so I guess they are taking new 'graduate stock fillers'.

Which streets? Little crash round here (herts) Denial and stagnation rule.

It will happen, but there zero evidence of 15% off or anything like it. Houses similar to my own are still being advertised 10-15% above what we paid in 2005.
