As I was saying, Zoopla is a very reliable index…

House prices down 11% since summer

"Nick Leeming, of Zoopla said: 'Whilst it has been a challenging period for the property market over the past few months, the recent dip in prices and the notable variance between regions may have created some interesting buying opportunities.' "

  • I think you’ll find “Zoopla” is actually Latin for “very reliable”

    If you don’t mind loosing a lot of money.

    We are now well into stagflation territory – and that points to more price falls.

    TT, aha, the penny drops. A while back, when Zoopla’s index mistakenly showed a rise, somebody said that “Zoopla is Greek for unreliable”.

  • MW – yes I think it is that too. That’s the beauty of the name, you can use the Latin or Greek interpretation depending on what they say…

  • Glad I didn’t buy at the start of last year. I was seriously thinking about it.
    Now I realise I can have a similar sized new build for the same price instead of a 1960’s property.

    What is the meaning of the Greek word Acadametrics? I am having trouble finding a translation.

    Crash B, “Acadametrics” isn’t a Greek word, it’s the name of a spell in the Harry Potter books, when you want to deliberately confuse and disorientate somebody.

    Not to be confused with the killing curse “Avada Kedavra”, so be careful with those two!

    More surfing has informed me that Acadametrics is actually one of the Cthulhu Elder Gods who is unable to converse directly with humans but comunicates with them by shaping their dreams. Its arch enemy is the earth god LaraVaulta’Taximin (LVT) and their mighty battles have already destroyed three other worlds.

    Crash B, nope, those three other worlds were destroyed by Numpties who carelessly shouted “Avara Kedavra!” and not “Acadametrics” when playing japes on a classroom friend called LaraVaultaTaximin, who was the innocent victim in all this.
