But the EA said I could get a 2007 price

Competitive pricing 'hugely important' when selling a home

2012; the year of embracing price reality. "In general, anyone wishing to secure a quick sale should not only pitch their property at a realistic price, but also show a willingness to negotiate on that price with any prospective buyer, Ms Paterson recommended." mmm, I'm guessing Ms Paterson hasn't tried to negotiate with greedy baby boomers with unrealisitic expectations. They really must have their cake, eat it, and sh1t it all over everybody else.

    Just like those in the 35 to 50 age group when they’re selling a house.

    Avarice and an “I’m all right Jack” attitude are not the sole prerogative of the boomer generation.

    Stop whingeing and move your ar*e if you’re not happy with your life.

  • Thing is, without forced sales, that won’t happen. The boomers have simply borrowed too much money and the value of their homes has dropped.

    Mr G, there are fewer under 45 year olds that 45 + year olds selling houses, and it’s the 45 + year olds who deliberately drove up the prices, so Doomwatch’s claim is actually quite true.

  • This week there seems to be a lot of ramping going on from desperate ownders hoping to offload into a spring bounce. I have noews for them it ain’t gonna happen this year.

    You can understand younger people having a go at Boomers as they are the generation who benefited from the rampant property inflation caused by voting in the same idiots over and over again.

    I know two armature BTL landlords at work, you guessed it they are both Boomers blaming Labour (who they voted in) for ruining the giant Ponzi pension system.

    Roll onto my generation and the engineers don’t get any pension and can’t afford a house. We have has a succession of young people leaving the company because of the poor opportunities offered. The only ones who stay are the Boomers who bought a reasonably prices house and were in the company pension scheem before it closed. The younger generation can’t afford to work here.

    There is a lot of resentment towards Boomers because they enjoyed the good times and left the younger generation with the mess to clean up. Not all Boomers are the same however it is human nature to stereotype people like hoodlums, boomers, chavs, benitis scroungers and foreigners. This country is very divided and fragmented and there is no sign of it getting better.

  • Stereotyping is always wrong, morally and factually.

  • It’s not just the UK stereotyping it is human nature. The Germans stereotyped the Jews, the Zimbabweans stereotyped the whites, the list goes on.

    Aha, but as to stereotyping, I am exactly that age where I’m either the last cohort of Baby Boomers or the first cohort of the great ignored, so I can say, without malice or bias, and using actual facts and figures and logic, that today’s young people are being right royally trampled on, have been for at least a decade, even worse than in the 1980s (when yes, there was a transitional issue away from control and command economy, and when a lot of older people suffered too).
