ha ha I had to laugh at the lawyers post. DO NOT THINK about buying until the point of maximum gloom in the market, probably still 3-5 years away when prices are half what they are now, it will be like the end of the last crash in the UK around 1990.
I remember the BBC journalist saying that property prices had been stagnant for years ‘have we seen the end of the days when a property would increase in value?’.
The property market is flooded with chancers which is why it lurches from boom to bust. The positive side of this is that it allows you to sell high and buy low if you can hold your nerve.
