Sorry, too busy laughing to think of witty strap-line.

London agent attacks media 'mission' to prove housing market collapse

Synopsis: Waah, waah, waah... "The boss of Bushells attacks the media for reporting the slightest negative titbit (sic) in what he says is its decade-long mission to prove the housing market is collapsing. He points out that his own firm has had a great start to the New Year."

    This just gets better; from comments:

    “Having worked in the press for years, I can tell Mr Walker that the young Johnies talking the prices down are the same malcontents who drift down here from House Crash Price. con. Spivvy little oiks who blow their cash on Levi 507’s, bottled import lager and anything trendy rom Apple.
    Open the 1962 Haig Special reserve and sit back and sell houses to the billionaires that land with every flight from China.”

    My wife promised me a pair of new Levi’s for my birthday, type 511 (waist 30″, inside leg 34″, seeing as you ask) and they cost £80. £80! So they went straight in the cupboard and I haven’t worn them yet. I do not drink bottled lager and I have a basic Mac mini and a three-year old iPod.

  • I liked this one – added by wardy on 2011-01-10 12:56:08

    Ok here it goes, I will try and do it in a style you like.
    Wardy Blog.
    The housing market isn’t great at the moment, transactions are low and much of the stock is over priced. However every thing at Wardy and Co is absolutely fine, we are selling loads and I have just ordered a Pagani Zonda. We seem to be bucking the trend and national house prices are of no concern to me. Please instruct me to sell your home.
    How was that?

  • I assumed that comment was self-parody.

    Why drink a blended whisky anyway?

  • I got some Levi’s from the outlet in York for £20. Aside from that i’m more a real ale man, I have an ipod that’s 3 years old also, and my mobile is a samsung flip phone i’ve had for the last 4 years.

    Either way, I enjoy the hypocracy of this article considering the years of ramping by writing quite the reverse.

    TBT, let’s not start on mobiles. I finally caved in three years ago and got myself a Nokia basic plain vanilla for £14.99 which is still going strong. Doesn’t take photos or anything.

  • You should check out Bushells website – it’s great. Their Latest News is a must read! Apparently the snow was responsible for weak sales in December. On the plus side their customer comments are excellent – imagine one very happy customer’s delight when the agent turned up on time and had the details of the property with them!! That kind of service is worth a few grand of anyone’s money.

  • @ MW. Until a few years ago I had an Alcatel phone which accepted 3 AAA batteries. Was great, made calls and did text messages. Unfortunately I dropped it down a flight of stairs and the aerial broke off. I used to solder it back periodically but I broke it further and decided to upgrade to a Blackberry. I don’t look back.

  • TC – “I am seriously thinking of going back to having NO mobile and a little black book with my numbers in…..”

    How are you going to ring people if you do away with the mobile? – they surely cant have landlines in Wales

    Crash n burn, you had a mobile that took AAA batteries and one of those little aerials that was handy for tamping down tobacco in the end of a joint? You should have kept it!

  • I write this just to p’ off any EA that dares to come on this website: There’s definitely a house price crash going on now. One website I look at that which monitors the asking price of 700k homes reports a £6k drop over the past 2 months. The stat’s also show the asking prices are £5k lower than the value reported 1 year a go for 618k properties. So there’s more properties on the market and the asking prices are falling. All good news and going in the right direction.
