Doesn't look like the Beeb will take up my replacement show suggestion of 'Presenters under the hammer' where BTL repossession victims get to hang the show's presenters from lamp posts.

Shame - I'd have watched !

Surely bludgeoning them with mallets would be more applicable.

I doubt if old potato-head Dominic would look any different, though... <_<

Have they stopped repeating any of the other "property porn" TV shows, or are they still on, on ITV3 etc during the day?

No, they're still on round the clock.

Must admit, I've become addicted to "Property Ladder".

I never watched it in the boom years as it annoyed me too much.

But now it's a fascinating historical portrait of a long-ago time when bricks were made of gold...

They should have kept these property porn shows going through the recession/depression (refuse to use BBC's rebranded "downturn"). Would have shown how pointless the presenters advise actually is. Seems that Kristian Digby on Open House is being thoroughly descredited though. I bet he can't wait to get out of his contract!

Crikey, you don't consider this to be the crash yet? I'm glad I don't have to choose birthday presents for you, mate - nothing'd be good enough :rolleyes:

But yeah, I'm looking forward to next year's events more than anything I've anticipated in a long, long time. And this is the only forum on which I can say things like that without getting flamed by countless sheeple bemoaning the predicament they have played a part in creating ...

It has been taken off the air because there are so few houses being sold in most auctions, and of what are being sold there is no instant profit to brag about.

Look at the results below of Oct auction about 25% sold. Why buy into negative equity?

thanks for the info....i would have thought it would have made for a really good tv show. to show us all the people who bought property. at auction and how much they lost on the price, they paid how nobody wanted to buy it.the sheepies could all really know hpc was here...i wonder why they only showed the up side to the property game....in snakes and ladders which i played as a kid. you could go up the ladder or come down on the snake.

people any ideas why the beeb only shows one face of the property game ? up ,up,up, but now oh dear,oh dear its down, down, down... :lol::lol::lol:

also down with the liar loan merchants....takers + givers etc....who caused the property bubble :angry:

A new series started on 1 September 2008, but then they seemed to show some old ones, then it just stopped.

On 1 September, there was a couple who bought a plot of land in Wembury for £75k. It had two old delapidated buildings on it. The show pointed out that planners were protective of the look of the village and that any PP might be a problem - planners had said "no chance" in the past. The plot contained trees with Preservation Orders. An artist had lived on the land in the past in a caravan and had applied for planning but had had it refused.

It was sold at auction on 26/09/07. Lot 40. Don't know the auctioneer (might be Fulfords as that's their turf)

Mark and Clare: they've got two kids. They said they know the plot well - and they think they can get it past planners, although they seemed very emotional about the plot and really had no idea of the planning process.

By the time the show got round to revisitng them, they'd changed their architect, for one who had a 100% success rate in getting PP passed. As the plot was bordering on farmland, it was decided they needed something that looked like a barn. They had had a tree survey undertaken and had decided to go nowhere near the trees. There were plot access problems; they decided they'd buy a strip of land from the farmer (it didn't sound like they'd even asked him yet, yet they sounded expectant).

At this point they'd spent £92k. Their original budget of £150k had increased to £175-200k and they said if they don't get PP then they'll just sell it again.

The show dragged two agents out to value the plot. They came up with completely different valuations: £25-50k and £80-90k.

The agents said if they did get planning it'd be worth £350-500k.

So, when that show went out, they'd spent £92k and it was only worth £25-90k.

I tried a quick google to track down any more info. But nothing. I might have another dig around.

the thing i felt that was wrong with the show...it just showed the up side of property .while yes off course you make money on the up...but ther must have been lots of stories of small or no profit or losses....

i believe the bbc has something to ans for getting. a lot of sheepies into debt because of shows like this.....

yes its ther fault when you have a low iq or no iq to talk about...you buy into a world..that a house is not a home but a magic money making machine. thats going to make you rich just buy,buy...liar loans are good for you..

had they told the whole story that property. can go up as well as down..then all the sheepies. could have made up ther own minds instead of being brain washed into buying property......when many off them used credit cards to fund the dep to buy these propertys....

Oddly enough, the shows original producer is my Ex's sister.

I am still on good terms with my ex so I occasionally bump into her.

She is the one also responsible for inflicting upon us the oily and odious David Dickinson.

I can remember her in 2004 outlining the idea of 'Homes under the Hammer' to me and that the chief virtue was that it was going to be cheap. The idea had grown out of the experience gained of setting up and filming in Auction Houses for 'Bargin Hunt'.

At that point I had come to conclusion that the market was becoming unsustainable and had decided that I was going to defer purchase - however this was a minority view and I kept it to myself rather than just get laughed at - so I wished her 'Good Luck'. :angry:

I think all the property porn programmes are guilty. I remember Phil Spencer constantly banging on about how New Build Flats and Starbucks were a sign an area was "up and coming" and basically implying you couldn't lose money. Seems absurd one now.

Allsop failed to even consider the posibilty values could fall.

Would be quite interesting to see Property Ladder in the current market! I remember most of the idiots on this made money thanks to a rising market rather than any skill or sound judgement.

How strange - I would react in the exact opposite way and not a penny would I pay in a region with New Build Flats or Starbucks, the blight of modern "civilisation".
