The Price Of Property C4 9pm Monday


Recommended Posts

Yep stately home wasn't the best comparison.Let's say a flat on Eaton Square with Adam fireplaces and antique panelling.Or maybe the giant chavie betamax control system swings it for you more.

I doubt if many 'Kasakstani billionairesses' would know the difference between an Adam fireplace and Adam Ant...the international superrich aren't interested in aping old money - they want the latest flashiest tat, as illustrated by the fact that the nice old English-vernacular houses of Bishop's Avenue have been replaced by rejects from the set of Dallas.

No doubt the six million pound MEWs town house in London with two million pound worth of chavie toys has been covered on this thread.But I am not surprised they are having trouble shifting this one.Not enough room to swing a cat because it is a former stable with servant accommodation.What's wrong with buying a stately home for the same price.The upkeep would be more but probably less than the depreciation on the 2 million toys you are stuck with.That bloody£150,000 electronic home control system that looked like a giant betamax video recorder is likely to be wothless and obsolete within a few years.

It will pay for itself in no time as now you don't have to leave the heating on if you want a nice warm flat to return to the next time you're out in China. :blink:

You could probably do all that for less than £500 with a cheap dell pc, and internet connection and some bits and pieces from Maplin.

What's wrong with returning to a cold or mildly chilly flat anyway? It's not like London is in the Antarctic circle FFS. What is wrong with people that they need to spend that type of money on something like that or is that property tosser just throwing money at problems that just aren't there, a la 'leather lined garages'.

8 weeks on the market and Max Mosley still didn't buy the place!

It was mind boggling that the presenter said that when he applied for a mortgage for a 1 bedroom flat for £32,000 in Acton in 1985, he was borrowing much less than 2 times salary but still had a major grilling from the bank manager warning him of the dangers and great financial commitment and burden he wanted to take on.

Compare with recent years - up to 6 times salary and 125% mortgages. Incredible !

You forgot to add the "and NO major grilling" <_<

She could be handing drugs money over to someone too and I'd expect you'd applaud that?

Again - would you prefer it was sat in the bank - benefitting her, or would you prefer the money to be spent - benefitting the other person?

The source of the money is an irrelevance - a sidetrack that makes me suspect you are a socialist gimp attempting the standard nulabia trick of distracting from the substance with some utter absurdity designed to appeal to a kneejerk reaction from those unable to see through it.

Does money just sit in banks? I was always under the impression it was invested, etc, etc...

You mean lent out to other people so they can push the price of property up so the less well off can't afford it because noone is buying their tanned plaice bellies?
