    Actually, the greedy ones were those who saw 20% off on the average indices early in 2009, and gambled on waiting for further falls.

    And given that prices have recovered by 10% since, those same greedy people have also now proven to be f eckless.

    The prudent, on the other hand, just got on with it and bought a house when they needed one, rather than gambling on playing the markets.

    And they generally did win..... Either through slightly lower prices, or through massively better mortgage deals.;)
