Now they say property market just dropped a few points.. great if you can push the bad news furthers...because the cash rich will be able to take advantage of the down turn and lower pricing to make a killing and grab more properties cheap. When the economy turns... imagine the killing they will reap by selling it back. The poorer ones can't do it as banks are tightening the rules and qualification now..so less competition for the top 1% to make more purchase since they have deeeeep pockets and might just pay cash for it. If I have money, this is the time to make your money work hard for you by taking advantage of the situation. And it is all very legal too. Oh and ah.....bad times are great for snap elections too if I may be so bold to throw in one last bit.
