Hilarious impartial investment advice

Property prices drop by £100k in sales stunt

... Steve Spence, senior partner at Neilsons solicitors and estate agents, said: "It's the first time we've done it because we've never had a situation in Edinburgh where property prices have gone down." Mr Spence said low prices and low interest rates made this the ideal time to buy property for future profit. "We're trying to underline the fact that this situation is unique and temporary and that in six, 12, or 18 months prices will go up again, as sure as night becomes day," he said.

  • I wonder how much of his own money that estate agent is willing to plough into the property market? Cos with a cast iron guarantee of positive returns like that surely he should be filling his boots?

  • Edinburgh has been over-inflated since about 2001, on the back of the largesse of the self-styled Scottish ‘government’ and dodgy dealing by the FS sector..

    The imposion of HBOS and now RBS means no-one up there can ignore reality any more … listen out for the large hissing sound audible even across the border as this bubble deflates rapidly ….

  • The only way that prices are going to go up in 6 months time is if Brown and the BoE flood the UK with loads of freshly printed money and we get hyperinflation. Bearing in mind that Browns economic ‘miracle’ was based on inflating the housing market and that we have been sold the need to print money to combat the ‘threat of deflation’ would anyone put it past them to do this to temporarily save their skins?

    ‘as sure as night follows day’….estate agents talk utter nonsense. I’m alarmed to see Margaret Beckett at it. She should stick to talking about caravans, she understands that market rather better.
