  1. oh my god a kitchen / corridor dual use. how that can be even legal? some people have no shame
  2. "cheap" for the area for this type of good but it is cheap because: you have no window, not only it will be dark and depressing probably damp, fungus etc... the area is lovely of course and the price should remain steady
  3. Hi guys, Agree with most of the comments above. the "new" middle clasee still has to go somewhere. I cannot afford a family in bs6, bs8 , southville, bishopton etc... currently renting in bedminster, i have no intention to stay there in the future gloucester road will be only a shared house with drunk students and around whiteladies as well. (by the way, I love that wilkinson that replaces borders on the triangle) between seamills and westbury might be actually nice and quite, any thought?
  4. why don't the youngs accept lower wages then? they would have a job then lazyness? the low wages are a direct result of the open market and the competition with asia. the british high tech companies cannot find british workforce because engineering is not fashion for the youngs who prefer trendy useless degree. if a migrant with no diploma and don't speak english can get a job; why the british youngs cannot?
  5. Britain is divided and races to the bottom standard of living. People are like lamb, scared to defend their right and prefer instead to give all the profit to the city and use their credit card to survive. in europe people have at least the dignity to defend themselve
  6. that's is an excellent question? on the news, thing is getting worse, depressing new everywhere. My wallet is guetting squeeze in the property market, rents are going up, plenty of buyer still where people get their money? i
  7. Sad new for those who work there. It does not seem to be many job around at the moment, even in bristol. Personally, i stopped looking to buy something for the time being. With this rate of inflation, the poorer area of bristol will suffer and the price can only go down. the price in bs6/bs8 however would probably not be affected. My only worry right now is that my landlord decide to increase the rate. It did not happen yet but he may decide to do it in the future.
  8. There are simply to many variables to be able to predict the future: 1. rising world population 2. rising pressure for ressoucre (price of food, peak oil, increasing scarcity of mineral etc...) 3. rising of the eastern world 4. aging of the population 5. increasing concentration of wealth 6. climate change 7. QEs 8. raise of faschism / political instability around the world 9. economic model (ultra liberalism or protectionism?) 10. automated share market, rigged & unpredictable The world is too complexe for anybody to understand.
  9. I am renting a 2 bed room in bedminster for £650 if I was planning to spent that in mortage, i would have half the flat i have now. don't like my situation much but it does not make sense to buy now. Furthermore, shopping around east street & asda, i can clearly see nobody have cash around there. pawn broker, discount shop, poundland super busy. Asda is full of people buying few booze and basic values only brands... depressing, i prefer to rent and eat healthily this area is becoming a third world country

  11. Just been to Adsa, Buying some prawn, I was looking at expiry date when I noticed something: 200gr of prawn on 28 July has become 180gr on the 29 th.
  12. Another point on commercial estate: I spent some time yesterday in the broadmead galleries. Talking with some shop owners, all of them said they are making a loss since christmas and don't expect the market to pick up before may. the ground and first first are almost half empty., the acrade to go to primark if 3/4 empty. yet no sign of price reduction for renting to businesses. about 10K a year to rent a tiny unit in the arcade, good luck with that.
  13. My worry is that the raise of interest rate will mask the drop in house prices. is it better to pay 150K at 4-5% or 120K when the IR will raise to 7-8 %, knowing the spending cut will impact me as hard as anybody? That's what still confuse me.
  14. Bristol is still a very rich city. All the west side still live in their old little world. A one bedroom start at £170K. £800K is not rare in clifton. The rest of the city were real people are still recovering. The amount of unsold house turning into rent and the number of "reduced" price houses is on the increase, I beleive.
  15. Don't know if it is omly wishful thinking but it looks price start going down and few seller seems desesperate for example: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-29393165.html from 210 to 120 http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-15931578.html?premiumA=true from 150 to 115 http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-26775709.html?premiumA=true http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-30702506.html?premiumA=true Obviously, it is not fantastic places to say the least Also the seller drop the price very quickly after induction.
