Can we join the party please?

First-time buyers locked out as house prices fall

However, my favourite comment comes from Ian Briggs of Dacre, Son & Hartley in Ilkley. "Given the torrid levels of November sales activity, myself and all of Ilkley's estate agents have just leapt off a cliff (for charity). Such a shame that the nation's mortgage lenders were disinclined to join us."

  • “Paul Cocker of Blundells Professional Services in Sheffield says: “Same old, same old – lack of finance. Until 90% mortgages are available at good rates of interest nothing will change. It is a ridiculous state of affairs.”

    I’m sceptical about this.

    I bought in 1993 on a ‘low-start” 95% mortgage at the bottom of the market – and the market stayed at the bottom for another 6 years.

  • “myself and all of Ilkley’s estate agents”

    Why and when did everyone suddenly start replacing “I” with “myself”?! It doesn’t make what you’re saying sound any more important. It’s just wrong. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
