    Sell before Brexit? 13th Sep 18 at 7:25 AM
    Hi,

    What do people feel about the housing market after Brexit? I am thinking of selling my house now and then buy another one after Brexit as I believe house prices will drop substantially. Is that a stupid idea or do people think there is mileage in it?

    What do you base this thinking on?

    If you do sell now and buy after Brexit, what's your plan for the months in between? You still need somewhere to live. Rent? Move in with parents?
    I don't make the same mistake twice. I like to make it 5 or 6 times, you know, just to be sure.

    Look before you leap. No I mean really look. And take a friend so they can look too. Then leap. Maybe.

    Brexit or no Brexit, this story would have made the news ""speaking on the 10th anniversary of the start of the previous crisis."".

    The main point isn`t about Brexit though, it is about the fact that the central banks have used up most of their big guns (QE) they can`t bail out debt holders again like they did in 2008?
