We’re (in)famous!

Falling house prices would boost prospects for new buyers

A couple of days old, but worth a read just for what's said about the HPC site in the comments

  • From the comments:

    “The thing that all this chaff underlines is that there needs to be a widely respected single recognised index that includes all transactions in all areas etc other wise it all serves little purpose except to get the HPC lot all in a tizzy.”

    I agree with that.

    “the yorkshire agent – Yep a load of old sH8te is being talked about a HPC, mainly because we had it in 2008, and now its taking its time to get repaired.”

    Honestly, those EAs should be thanking HPC for ‘talking down the market’…

    Tsk tsk, where’s the gratitude?

  • Sib’s, the EA’s will soon be advocating price reductions – they need turnover/volume – a static market will drive them out of business (unless they have several other strings to their bow of course)

    Halifax EA advising someone I know to drop price again ie further 10% due to no movement in 12 month period (and I have to say it is a nice 3 bed detached in a good area)

    Precisely Jack, although it seems they want it both ways; large volumes at ridiculous prices.

  • i like this one “HPC = HousePriceCrash. You know – the militants who believe that prices CAN and WILL drop by 300% if they shout it loud enough… ;0)”

    Reminds me of the tooting popular front…. Power to the people…

    We’re not boshie nor silent. Truth about the falling house prices hurts most those who have vested interests.

  • Tenuous link: My wife used to teach with Cheryl Hall (who plays Wolfie’s girlfriend) – A house in the street Cheryl used to live in has just appeared on nethouseprices at a price 35% below the price the owners paid for it in 2006. It was sold through an EA and was on the market for two years, so it’s not a repo. I didn’t have to shout anything to achieve this!
