  1. My Story , it was all very strange days indeed : In 2007 i was working away ( isle of man ) from home trying to keep up with my mortgage and connected loans , i was struggling after a divorce ( bought her out ) . At the time i came home every 5th ( ish ) week for a Break , and everytime i was amazed at the ( rising ! ) asking price of a house for sale in my street . Long story short , i got mine valued , put it up for sale , it was a no brainer , another 10 years struggling or sell and walk away with enough to buy and own ( on the isle of man ) . So in the space of about 6 Months i went fr
  2. Well , it will be no surprise to you my solicitor adviced to walk away also .
  3. Really ? , do you know which apartment ?
  4. lol , i hav'nt lost any money ( yet ) . You had to bid on them ( last year ) . It was a first floor apartment with a massive roof space , which already as a window as you can see in the picture . adding a 3rd bedroom if wanted in the future . ( thanks again for everybodys input , its giving me alot to think about )
  5. i hear everybody loud and clear , , and in defence of me even thinking about buying this apartment : They are finished as a shell , ie all electrics finished , heating finished including radiators ( just needs a boiler fitted ) , all plastering/floors finished . So its a blank canvas , needs kitchen fitted , bathroom fitted , doors fitted , carpets fitted ... move in . Theres only 4 to a block , all got separate doors . It , to me seems a good location , a bit better that most apartment sites as in its a small development , lots of parking and quite private . ( not like the belfas
  6. Hi , Its a shell im buying , there is no lifts in the apartment block ( 4 apartments in my block ) . the management company is setup , and the actual site is 80% finished with contacts set out by the bank ( seller ) to finish everything .
  7. Hi , Looking advice and/or input from anybody else who is buying from this site or knows anything regarding it ?! . I'm in the process of buying 1 of the apartments , have been for near 7 months now , it's taking forever ( paper work and Nama ) , , estate agent not very helpful , nor solicitors , , it's got to the stage I'm thinking of pulling out ( want my life back lol ) . Any advice helpful :-/ Thank you
  8. Hi all , No posts have been on the forum re The IOM for quite a while . Its a Place that interests me , but to be honest i dont know to much about its market place of late ( was last on the island in Jan09 , the housing market seemed to be holding its prices and things where ok ). Any advice/information would be helpful . Thanks, Gee
  9. Hi all , this is my first post . Been reading these posts with great interest for sometime . My question is , Is it a good time to sell in the Isle of Man ? I was lucky enough to sell my home (N.ireland ) august 07 before the &%*! hit the fan !!. Made enough money to buy a great studio apartment in the Isle of Man , currently bringing me £500 pcm income . ( renting back in N.Ireland at moment ). Since then obviously house prices ( n.ireland ) have crashed , making me think maybe its time to sell and buy back home again . Really my question is , " Is my money better in IOM or better
