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?

We've been looking at some decent houses in the areabut had never been there for a proper look. While we were there we popped in to some new developments...

  • 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
