Even Kirsty is following the Bear ….

Fame and Fortune: Kirstie Allsopp

Well, who'd have thought it, words from Kirsty "I think in the short term there may be a decline in prices that will affect those who bought in the past two years with 95% mortgages.". She bought a flat at the summer 2007 peak for £350K too ho ho !

  • I thought prices never went down kirsty

    The girl has not got a clue imo…..she was responsible for the ramping boom as well

    Didn’t care that we were financially marginalising our next geneartion while we sat on fat profits…and we wonder why they join gangs!

  • Who gives the slightest bit of credence to what she says? She’s a public schoolgirl who presents a property programme. The IMF she’s not.

  • The Times: “Do you invest in shares?”

    Kirsty “No, never. I am a great believer in investing in the things you know best and for me that is property.”

    Holy mackerel!

  • “Every time you make a purchase of any kind you think, I am spending this pound: how long will it take me to earn that pound and how much time am I going to be away from my child in order to earn that pound.”

    Bleeeutch.

    why will it effect badly those who bought modestly with a 95% mortgage over the past two years? If they paid 100K in 2006, their place rises in value to be ‘worth’ 125K then falls back to be ‘worth’ 90-95K…so what? Better than buying a flat in Londonium for 400K and seeing its value destruct by 150K isn’t it? The bigger the ticket price to enter the game, the bigger the loss, doncha just lover percentages when they’re converted back to real numbers…

  • who stole my pension? says:

    “Are you a saver or a spender? I am a saver but a disorganised saver. As soon as I get paid, the tax and VAT immediately gets put into separate accounts which I never touch.

    Does she count putting aside for bills such as tax and VAT as saving? If so silly girl (as someone else said on this site).

    You’re kidding – what sweet, poetic justice.

  • What is interesting is that the mainstream media are still treating her as this privilaged source of information – she is everywhere on tv and press yet seems to be immune from any growing anger at price falls…

  • “It is definitely a time to be buying things.”

    What planet is she on?!

    “We’re a small country, we are never going to have a huge building capability and people are always going to want to come to live and work here so there will always be a demand.”

    Errrr, no. I know lots of educated middle-class high earners who are either considering or actively planning to emigrate. By contrast the new arrivals are poorly-paid Polish plumbers and unemployed Afghan refugees. Where will the high salaries come from with which to buy these expensive houses?

    “I don’t think we’ll have negative equity like in the 1990s again.”

    So if we do have negative equity like in the 1990s, will you eat your hat?

    it’s not about “negative equity”, as per usual with these meeja tarts they’re completely missing the point, it’s the apparent wealth destruction of the middle classes as their single source of wealth (EQUITY IN HOUSE) disappears that’s the problem. Not OK if you’ve mentally ‘relied’ on it for so many reasons…

  • Perhaps Kirsty’s change of sentiment is the purported “change of consciousness” that was due today 6th July 08!

    Kirsty looks great in that photo btw.

    Firstly she looks fat in that photo. Definitely a pair of chubby cheeks there.

    Secondly last year she said prices would not even go down due to the same la de da reasons she is giving for not going as bad in the 90’s. She is merely moving the goal posts – just like every other property VI scrambling around for a bit of dignity.

    So to sum it up she a liar and she’s looking fat.

  • Personally I cannot stand LLL. It seems they nearly always have people on with substantial amounts of money. I’m from Wrexham, traditionally a low income area, and I don’t know anyone who has this kind of money.
