Went to view two 4-bed detached houses today in East Lothian. Rooms were tiny! Honestly, bedrooms - fit a bed in. Living room - fit a couch in. No room for anything else. 200k+. Told the EA the rooms were shockingly small.
Response: 'Well, they're new-builds' .
She then added... 'You can't expect much more at this cheap price range'

Make of those comments what you will...

Honestly, couldn't you have figured this out from the room sizes on the schedules or web listings, and have saved you and the EA the trip.....?

Why do you need to SEE the room to realise what size it is?

  • I don't believe that there can be sustainable asset inflation when there is underlying wage deflation.
  • No matter what you choose to do in life, choose to do what you are best at and be the best you can be.
  • Everyone is a vested interest and everything is rigged.
  • Sometimes bubble dynamics just end, people stop believing and what was once a virtuous cycle suddenly morphs into vicious one.
  • The real value goes beyond the money.

I have come to realize that there is widespread belief in a 2015 global recovery.At this point in June 2013 is clear that there will be no recovery in 2015, central bankers have run out of tools to patch over the structural problems and the can can no longer be kicked.As we approach 2015 it will be clear that the emperor has no clothes and there will be an economic crash that makes 2009 look trivial.Note: I was wrong on 2nd May 2012 12:00 - London Top called prediction of London will fall by >10% in 12 months.

what a strange looking house, who would put a front door like that in when everything else is symetrical, knotty pine doors and skirting is shocking.

Britain has more external storage space (such as Big Yellow Storage etc) than the rest of Europe combined.

Small houses + Argos and cheap Chinese sh1t + grabby, greedy chavvy culture = rampant demand for external storage

2015 Predictions 

 

1. No party can achieve a majority in the May elections, still less the 325 or so seats needed for a reasonably stable working majority. So two predictions, first there'll be another coalition. And secondly, despite the new fixed term parliament legislation, there'll be another election before 2020.

 

2. Base rates will not exceed 1% in 2015.

 

3. Nominal UK house prices won't move up or down by more than 2% during 2015. 

 

4. The US dollar will continue to strengthen.

 

5. FTSE dominated by Eurozone developments in 2015. If Mario Draghi prevails with meaningful QE then the FTSE will top 7000, more likely he won't and the FTSE will fall below 6000 on fears of a Euro exit and subsequent break up.

 

6. Despite oil prices increasing in the second half of 2015 inflation will remain well below the 2% target.
