    Sweet.


    Glad I'm not a contractor, then they'd be bending me right over.

    So you waited until the price doubled and are buying now. I see what you did there...

    Yeah but with Camoron and Gidiot in charge, it will go up another £50K, so you can't lose! Everyone is buying. Buy! Buy! Buy!

    Honest.
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    Nah, not sure - Gitiot might just crash the market, but I need to live somewhere nice anyway, don't care even if it drops by 20%.

    Oh it gets worse, we bought in a rough area about 6 weeks before the bubble popped in 2008, then couldn't sell it, left it empty while renting so we could get the kids in a good school, killed ourselves on a mortgage plus rent, then finally sold the house, massive lump of negative equity, worked for years to clear it, then more years to get deposit.

    We have genuinely caught the dirty end of the dirtiest of sticks.

    Meanwhile there is this little fixer-upper going for £280,000 in the Dordogne. Equidistant from Bordeaux & Toulouse airports.

    Just read the headline on the BBC.

    House price growth rises to 9.7%, says Halifax
    If anything else goes up in price it's called "inflation".
