This week, Kirstie & Phil are once again shamelessly encouraging rookie’s to enter the BTL market ZZZzz

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Kirsty & Phil have got a lot to answer for, especially the way they have helped the greed and abandon of these times to flourish. This weeks loosers, opps I mean, contestants are called Howard & Joanna - and are keen to enter the BTL market as a pension strategy. Why do these people always seem to talk like estate agents? They want to buy 2 houses - nothing simpler - and they haven't even lived together yet....well, at least if it doesn't work out that take have a house each Ouch! Now who wears the trousers? ''Hmm now what could they do to that shack that could give them a 15 grand return. Hmm let me see...''

  • Maybe Howard and Joanna *are* Estate Agents desperate to inject some libido into the flagging market before it all goes t!ts up.

    My goodness is this an annoying format for a program. At face value it is performing a customer service by helping indecisive half-wits realise that the reason that they can’t find a five bedroom house with a large garden close to the good schools is that there actually aren’t any – at least any that they can afford. Do you really need a garden? Do you really need an integrated lifestyle dining kitchen wet-room?

    In reality I’m not entirely sure what it represents although there is an element of “considerably richer than yaou” in there. If you really need Kirsty and Phil to be your personal shoppers then you are in a lot of trouble.

  • All prices shown were from 2004/5 so totally out of date, as have all these recent property porn, from Location – Relocation – Grand Designs – place in the sun etc. It will be really interesting to see what these two and the rest come up with in this falling market.

    Kirsty and Phil are my fault. I’m really sorry.

    About 1999 I was swearing at the tv because all there was on was hospital dramas, cop shows and home video programmes with Lisa Riley.I asked, in my anger, “can they not find anything better than this to put on? or anything different at least….”. There was a flash of lightening. The next morning there was a programme on BBC 2 which seemed to have no point, just a couple of overly picky wealthy people walking round houses and saying why they weren’t going to buy them. I knew it was bad TV, but what I didn’t know was that my Faustian pact would contribute to the destruction of the British economy.

    Same thing happened in 2005 with the ashes… “I don’t care how bad Leeds get, just let us win!”. I’m regretting that one too.

  • This really is an awful show and clips of it will be shown during the crash to remind people of how easily duped they were by the VI charlatans.

    I saw a bit of this one last night. Not verbatum but a phrase came up along the lines of ‘you wouldn’t want to live here but your tenants will’. Just sums it all up really – a belief that if you can find someone to lend 100x income you are somehow socially superior to your fellow countrymen. At least the two last night had the decency not to touch Krusty and Phlip’s BTL ‘investment’ with a bargepole.

  • Thankfully, this will be their last series. Phil is too busy doing up his Wandsworht pad using Polish builders.

    The sad thing is that when prices go into full retreat they will be asked to do another show to help people make the most of their housing in a falling market. THE MORONS WHO WATCH THEM WILL BE THE SAME ONES WHO WATCHED THEM BEFORE ANDWILL NO DOUBT FORGET THAT THESE GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO TOLD THE WORLD PRICES CAN’T FALL…great people to get advice off!

    The worst thing is that they will be asked to do another show when the market falls telling people how to get the most from their house. The same people who believed them when they said prices can never fall will forget that and listen yet again!
