Martin Roberts a “mindless optimist”

Wake Up to Money: Friday 15 mins in

... author of "Making Money from Property", and self proclaimed property expert on "Homes Under the Hammer" accused of "...relentless and mindless optimism ..". Brilliant Stuff 15 mins in to Fridays show. "Did you sell many books ?..." at the start cracked me up. Didn't really have a convincing answer for "how do you make money in a falling market ?" Apparently auction prices and sales are diving. Made my day.

  • That was absolutely fantastic – I don’t think he was expecting to be interviewed by a bear! So much nervous laughing on every reply!

    What a joker, he got the living in caves bit wrong though, we will be buying up his portfolio at a fraction of what he paid for them.

    I couldn’t bear to listen to it all – the mindless optimism was getting to me. Did he actually say that “Since records began houseprices have risen every 7 years”? Just depends which 7 years you go for. I think that 2008 – 2015 will be interesting. Watched a couple of the “Homes Under the Hammer” this week. Noticed that the programmes are pre credit crunch and everyone appears to be mindlessly optimistic – I would prefer to call them sadly deluded.

  • Was this guy actually alive in the 90s? If the buy to let market is so strong, how come the yields are so low? Ok he is saying if you can buy property at the right price, but isn’t that the problem, you can’t.
