  1. New Zealand bans foreign buyers

    You forget the most important one: Mosquitoes!
  2. "Up to 6,000 Euros, capital gains are taxed at 19%. Gains of 6,000 to 50,000 Euros and above are taxed at a rate of 21%. Gains of 50,000 and above are taxed at 23%." Imagine all those paying proper tax over their share profits of the past decade and may soon face a crash. Will they get that tax refunded?
  3. French Property

    Convenience, convenience and convenience. After I read that the happy few from Monaco likes to go out in Nice, that said it all to me. Cote d'Azur way too boring. People like to live somewhere, where they got something to do. Nice at least working on it.
  4. French Property

    Juan les Pins apart from its hair dresser Kim & Roland is crap. It is a place where people start buying when better places along the Cote d'Azur are too expensive and the other way round nobody will buy there when those better places become affordable. Similar comparison may be made between France and Spain. France is better, but if too expensive, one goes to Spain. Interest rates, yes, that is what it is all about, but .... sadly I do not think those will go up much longer.
  5. 2.91%. Slowly heading into the right direction.
  6. Grrrr. All not what I want to see: Dow back up, 10 years yield down again and Bitcoin going back up.

  8. Any idea what impact these Catalonian troubles may have?

  10. French Property

    https://parispropertygroup.com/blog/2017/macron-announces-changes-impacting-real-estate-in-paris/ I think it will have no impact. The ISF is a very nasty tax. Holland has it too and there it is being challenged in Dutch courts. Many HNWI are already living in Belgium (which is not that bad) in order to avoid it. As soon as it disappears some will decide to move back.

    "China plans to send astronauts to the Moon before 2036" Another 19 years for something that was supposed to be possible in 1969?????!!!!
  12. That is the one thing that has truly amazed me. Many Honkies could sell their flats, emigrate, buy somethiing decent and still have plenty of money left over to retire on. Yet hardly anyone does it. When I ask about it, to many the social hurdle of leaving friends and family behind still seems an issue.
