  1. They spoke to a couple in Redditch and asked them what a raise in IRs would mean for them. They guy said "to be honest we could do with them going down, if they go up it will cripple us".
  2. I guess it's the old thing about selling shovels in a gold rush.... http://mum-in-business.com/maximum-profit-multi-let-property-system/ Extreme caution is required: http://www.property118.com/rent2rent-letting-contracts/41231/#sthash.YxwzPI5h.dpuf

  8. Apologies if this has already been posted but I didn't see it: http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/council-opens-letting-agency-to-help-protect-private-sector-tenants-9012450.html?origin=internalSearch
  9. Don't know how accurate/suitable it is but I have the free iPhone incarnation of this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.experian.forsite.android&hl=en_GB
  10. I'm doing some due diligence on a start-up investment opportunity that has been pitched to me and which is looking to attract funding from www.seedrs.com In the course of browsing some SEEDRS listings I saw this: http://www.crowdmortgage.co.uk/ And here's one that's over-funded on SEEDRS: http://www.landbay.co.uk/ Could be interesting. I have absolutely no association with any of these entities. Richard
  11. Anyone care to speculate on what sort of conversion ratio will be achieved by this advertiser in respect of the PB user base?
  12. Just to re-cap..... Beerhunter came to a commercial arrangement with Nethouseprices: http://www.property-bee.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=12016 It's impossible to know for sure but judging from the way the support forum has become infected with spammers it would seem that Beerhunter has little or no ongoing involvement - which is fair enough because he did a fantastic job to keep it going.

  13. I don't begrudge them that either - but data protection is such a sticky area and if someone takes exception to the fact that their consent has not been sought then that could ultimately jeopardise the service; they do need to be careful. Anyway as I acknowledged in my original posting, this may be a hack. Richard
  14. I've just had an html mail that pupports to be from noreply@property-bee.com entitled "Manchester Buy-to-Let Apartments | Exclusive Pre-Launch Prices". At the bottom it says: "You are currently subscribed to the Knight Knox International newsletter as <email address>. To unsubscribe click here." I most definitely have not subscribed to that. Has anyone else had this? Richard
  15. could be interesting and at least the point is getting some mainstream coverage..... it was the last item on the intro so watch this space
  16. usual dross no doubt.....
  17. I couldn't see this on iplayer but I live in Watford and can confirm that quite a few shops have closed in the recent past - there are also clusters of 3 or 4 closed shops right near each other which I think adds to the effect.
  18. Would be interesting to see a plot of house prices versus down syndrome births
  19. FrozenOut, I'm in north Watford (wd24) whcih from memory is very close to you. I've just looked through 125 houses in "watford" with min 3 beds in the range of £250-£350k and I don't think I saw a single price increase for those parameters. I also looked at all 2 bed flats in wd24 and got the same outcome. Are you looking in wd17? Richard
  20. I have a first class degree in computer science and can't get close to understanding my electricity bill lol
  21. just seen him being interviewed on bbc news 24 by nick robinson and he's now saying he meant to say 0.7% growth, not 0% growth.
  22. Annoying though it is for most people on here, such IO mortgages (particularly those of the self-cert variety) will undoubtedly emerge as a mis-selling scandal and the majority of these people will be compensated (with our money). I'm not saying that they have been mis-sold, I'm just saying that they will have been deemed to have been mis-sold.
