    yep - especially with rates at 40 million year lows and they keep on photocopying money on that colour printer they just bought

    but... maybe prices are re-correcting from the drops in 2008... just a thought

    Quite seriously.

    abaxus yesterday started a thread about a "Coupe da tar" (Coup d'etat)

    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Surely, a sentence should start with a capital.

    So in general (there will be exceptions !!!) anybody not in their final house (i.e. house for life) has seen the gap between their house price and the one they want increased today, not sure I'd be celebrating that.

    So the Baby Boomers will be popping the champagne today :rolleyes:
