[Housing Market Myths] House Prices Always Rise

Posted by Lex Fear on April 9, 2007

Some months ago I posted my intentions to blog regarding the UK housing market.

I will begin with addressing some of the myths that are commonly cited with absolutely no backing, usually by vested interests (VIs) and home owners.

The First Myth: House Prices Always Rise

This is usually the first one pulled out by those VIs who want to motivate you to stretch yourself to get on the first rung of the ladder. Statistics prove the exact opposite. Certain areas will rise and fall depending on age population, land value, attractiveness of the area and changes in infrastructure just to name a few. Below is a graph of average prices in the postcode area I currently live (edited to remove address details):

[Poetry] Prints in the Sand

Posted by Lex Fear on April 9, 2007

Such a beautiful poem, I thought I should share:

One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.

But then some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord,” What have we here?”
Those prints are large and round and neat.
“But Lord, they are too big for feet.”

“My child,” He said in somber tones,
“For miles I carried you alone.
I challenged you to walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.

“You disobeyed, you would not grow,
The walk of faith, you would not know,
So I got tired, I got fed up.
And there I dropped you on your butt.”

“Because in life, there comes a time,
When one must fight, and one must climb,
When one must rise and take a stand,
Or leave their butt prints in the sand.”
