    Nationwide Dec 18

    after a no deal brexit...
  2. Has anyone signed up to this? Interesting idea, but not sure if it'll work.. This is a new currency and payment network built by ex-PayPal guys, called Initiative Q. The Q currency is currently being allocated for free if you are invited by an existing member. The idea is that if millions of people join, Q could become a leading payment network, and, according to well-known economic models, that means the value of the reward would be around $130,000. The amount you reserve decreases every day, and each member has a limited number of invites. You can use my invite link here: https://initiativeq.com/invite/BX8MG3nom (Don’t worry. No funny stuff. You just need to give your name and email and your spot is reserved). https://hub.packtpub.com/is-initiative-q-a-pyramid-scheme-or-just-a-really-bad-idea/

    so the land registry prices are now listed, the original house sold for : 19/03/2018 £412,000 15 Whitehill Road, Cambridge, CB5 8LT and the new builds built in its garden sold for : 18/10/2017 £295,000 62 Elfleda Road, Cambridge, CB5 8NA 31/07/2017 £490,000 61 Elfleda Road, Cambridge, CB5 8NA I guess the guys who bought No 15 are feeling chuffed knowing they paid 38K under asking price.....
  4. The correct grammar is MY not me. No wonder you cannot afford much. coming down south, the correct grammar is ONE, not MY, not me. Went to Waitrose Friday for a waz, free tea, and tub of mini rolls on one's trip down South.

    Buying offplan

    I don't think you get locked in. After you get the mortgage agreed, you can still opt for something else, but you may have to pay a fee to change your mortgage.

    That price is crazy, even in Cambridge you can pick up a decent 3 bed house with that price. For comparison this flat is in a much better location, near the river and closer to the town centre first listed for £525,000 on 24th Jan 2017, now on offer for £400K https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/42762555?search_identifier=4745afc3592846cafc87cdcdda4486e6#jR7bsGqOCHgYsgDh.97 looking at the jobs available on the university website here: http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/ very few of the employees could afford to buy even the studio flats at Eddington :/
  7. Why Iran, without a doubt, will become a regional and global economic powerplayer in the decade to come. It's it a matter of If, it's a matter of when. And that when is very close. Why are European Countries Investing in Iran? article here....

    I've been looking at properties in the Abbey Ward for the last few years. A 3 bed semi on whitehill road was bought by some developer back in 2015 for just under 400K 06/03/2015 £396,000 15 Whitehill Road, Cambridge, CB5 8LT They knocked down the old single extension to the side of the house, and in its place built a 2 bed house. Also, they knocked down the garage at the end of the house and built a 3 bed house in its place. Info is here: http://democracy.cambridge.gov.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?AIId=14886 The 3 houses are now back on the market , the new builds have already gone SSTC at 300, and 495 K each! https://www.onthemarket.com/details/3813556/ https://www.onthemarket.com/details/3813555/ the original house is still on the market at 450K https://www.onthemarket.com/details/3852323/ Whats really strange, is that I can no longer find any info on zoopla, rightmove of the original house, No 15 Whitehill Road: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices/detail.html?country=england&locationIdentifier=STREET^2262907&searchLocation=Whitehill+Road&referrer=landingPage There is no trace of the property sold prior to redevelopment, but you can still see it on google streetview: http://******/2sPOrxN It would be interesting to see what the actual sold prices will be once published, but its crazy someone is willing to pay £300k , for a side extension of a house that sold for £396 18months earlier
