It's ironic that one of the advantages of home ownership is being free to paint the walls purple, but you can't paint the walls purple because future purchasers won't approve! (-:

This made me laugh, but then I thought "Actually...no."

The programmes about decorating your house with minimalist cream interiors make people think that people want to buy houses with minimalist cream interiors. But actually, people want to decorate houses with minimalist cream interiors. That's why they watch the programmes about it. They don't want to buy them like that in the first place, because if they were perfect in the first place how could you MAKE YOUR PROPERTY MORE APPEALING, which is the goal of every right-thinking person in England not Britian?

I don't want to talk directly about property prices, but at some point in the not-too-distant future we're all going to be on the stupid property-inflation bubble again, and property pr0n will be back on the telly, and lots of people will be trying to buy cheap, sell dear, and lots more will be trying to find a place to live where they don't have a landlord who can kick them out, and purple walls/flying ducks/clutter says "You are getting great value because you're buying from some idiot who doesn't know the trick about minimalist cream interiors!"

Having said that, I would still get an oven. And, sadly, <lj user="brighty" is right about the parking space too.

Er, I meant brightybot. When people see my HTML tags I feel as if they've seen my pants. And not my best pants, either.
