    Goodbye Mr EA

    Do let us know how you get on with the online agencies. Note that YMMV but my personal experience with these online EA have been terrible. My view is they put take your money, put your house on RightMove + Zoopla and that's about it. They don't return your call, terrible at organising viewings and incompetent at the sales process. Another thing to put me off is that I'm meeting the vendors when buying houses, but that's personal preference, I fully accept that some actually prefer meeting the vendor themselves. My preference is to meet the vendor *after* we've agreed on the price. This is in London and again, YMMV.

    Time to sell

    Why are you so convinced that this is a 'lie'? Rightmove is a publicly listed company traded in LSE. They won't be spouting 'lies' for legal reasons. I'm sure it's correct *based on their definition* of time to sell. I can't find the definition in RightMove but from here: https://propertymoose.co.uk/blog/time-to-sell/ it refers to: Honestly, I don't think they tweak this number, it's just a database query,

    Young Londoners Leaving

    I also have an anecdote for you. Similarly, on my journeys, I see many people of different colour than white and all are working. Additionally, may white people are not British, there are French, Spanish, German and many other nationalities. Not two miles where I live there's an estate, full of white British people and very few are positive contributors to the economy. Like you, there's no assumption about it either.
  5. I don't understand the attraction of Surbiton. I would rather have this: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-54603552.html (in Wimbledon). It's also build but in a better area (IMO).
  6. Personal experience in SW London (Wandsworth), houses here are selling 10% - 15% down from the peak (Summer 2016).
  7. I would .... honestly, it's (much) better than what I had when I was at uni You have your own kitchen, shower, toilet ... bliss ... Handle-free kitchens have been around for a long time, don't know why it's newsworthy.
  8. I don't see big problems with this? If the aim is for student-accommodation-like dwellings then it's much better than many student accommodations that I've seen & experienced during my uni life! Honestly, I would rather live in one of those (providing it's sensibly priced) than some of my rentals during my student days.

    Toronto House Prices down 14%

    There is no land problem in Australia but there is a land-where-there-are-jobs problem in Australia. Take Sydney for example, lots of lands but epic commutes from the outlying suburbs. Public transport is abysmal and traffic is even worse. It's not like in London where you can have a decent commute the commuter suburbs, the train link the Illawara region (south) and Central Coast (north) is terrible and rage-inducing.

    Deutsche Bank kaput yet?

    How Deutsche Bank’s high-stakes gamble went wrong https://www.ft.com/content/60fa7da6-c414-11e7-a1d2-6786f39ef675 It's behind a pay-wall, but if you have access it's definitely worth reading. It's one of the long-read articles and has a lot of history why DB is the way it is today, went all the way back to 1995.

    House Prices vs Salaries

    Not just the Latin and Slavic nations ... it's endemic everywhere in Europe's big cities.

    House Prices vs Salaries

    A vicar job still comes with a house but you'd better sort yourself out during your time because when you retire the CoE won't help you (much).

    Property Log

    Just want to say thank you. This is great and unlike Property Bee it doesn't slow down Chrome (if it does it's not noticeable) and slick. Great stuff.
