  • Hey this rollercoaster ride is gonna be fun. I put my property on the market in January 07 as I was confident that the housing market would crash having been a regular reader of this website and being reasonably observant to the world. I sold in July by the skin of my teath and put the money into a bond that had just increased its interest due to the credit crunch. Now its getting clearer that houses are not selling and asking prices are reducing. I think its going to take some time but in a year or two I think the prices will be alot lower. And thats if nothing “unforseen” happens. What happens if there is a war with Iran and oil supply is disrupted?

    911 was an inside job
