  1. Not long now. Hopefully we can join the EU and get the Euro in Scotland too. I feel sorry for the decent folk in England and Wales that will be left under Tory rule for eternity but what can you do? Scotland and England in particular are poles apart in political terms these days.
  2. I’ve said it a few times on here but house prices in central Scotland have gone crazy. It really is mania time. Houses are going to closing within 7 days of listing. New build homes have 6-9 month waiting lists. Previously it was a slog to sell them in all but the best areas. Up until about a year ago houses were staying on the market for around 3-6 months. Only the best houses were selling within a month. This is honestly the craziest house prices have been in this region since 2007.
  3. Where in Scotland? In and around Glasgow it’s insane. Houses go to closing with the week and for substantially more than 2019 prices.
  4. House prices here in central Scotland have gone mental the last 6 months. Houses are selling within a week and going for substantially over the home report value. This is the hottest the Scottish housing market has been since before the financial crisis.
  5. House prices up 4-5%. Vaccine rollout to over 50’s completed in Scotland and Ireland well ahead of England and Wales. Boris resigning end of February. Rushi Sunak elected as new Prime Minister. Euro 2021 held in all nations except England to 30-40% capacity. Wembley games behind closed doors to much gnashing of teeth. Brexit proving to be both a political and financial disaster for the UK with SNP & Green Party securing an overwhelming majority at Holyrood to secure a mandate for a second independence referendum. The unification of Ireland edging closer and closer with polls indicating almost 2/3 of folk in the North support full unification. Bitcoin back down to about £10k.
  6. I’m also in central Scotland and that’s really not what I’ve seen. There’s been a mini boom here with a lot of houses for going to SSTC in a few weeks for over the home report. If I put into right move a local area and go to newly listed then most houses listed from about two weeks back are under offer.
  7. King hell. I don’t know what’s worse, that you’ve made us all read that nonsense or that you actually believe it to be true. This is the problem with the internet. You can spot a nutter in the pub or out and about very easily. “That’s plenty” and away you go. Not so easy on the internet, sadly. On here for example you can’t tell until you’ve had the misfortune to read the muck they’ve flung on the wall. They must be sitting there clapping their faeces smothered hands together with a delirious look on their face. Conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, flat earthers, 5G....blah, blah. Mutants. The whole lot of them.
  8. Glad you posted this, thanks. It means I can mark you down as a fool and ignore the rest of your drivel. To think I could have wasted my time reading any more of your nonsense on here. It would be good if more nutters could make it this evident from the onset. Thanks again.
  9. As I said earlier, where I am in central Scotland it has gone a bit mental. Houses are SSTC in a week or two at higher prices. I don’t think anyone is seeing an increase in pay to justify house prices increasing. However they’ve just experienced lockdown in a property they quite possibly find too small, lacking a garden etc and are willing to spend more to get something better. Plus they’ve factored in that’s there’s no holidays abroad for 2-3 years, no city breaks, no nights out, no extravagant shopping in the high street or trips to restaurants. Most folk have saved a fortune during lockdown. I know I have. Plus borrowing is ridiculously cheap at the moment. I’ve just signed up to a 5 year fix for 1.59%. It’s mental. I’m honestly not surprised prices are increasing just now. Once furlough ends and folk can’t pay their bills then things should change.
  10. Anecdotal evidence only but here in central belt Scotland houses are going to closing within a week or two and going for a good bit over home report. It’s crazy. A neighbour’s house went to closing in a week and sold for well over home report. That’s not really that normal here. £5-10k over is more in keeping. One of the folks that missed out on the property wrote a letter and posted it through all the letterboxes of the surrounding homes asking if anyone wanted to sell. I’m honestly not 100% sure what’s causing it. I wonder if folks being stuck indoors due to lockdown and now a lack of things to spend their money on would rather a nice home with an excellent sized garden in a great area. No holidays, fancy clothes and nights out etc. Plus really cheap borrowing. I’m delighted I bought back in 2016 to be honest. I was renting a poxy flat back then. It would have been torture with the four of use in a flat with no green space and one toilet. I had been waiting since 2008. Been browsing this site since then and feels like just when you think the madness can’t continue it somehow does.
  11. Imagine it was Norwegian Wealth Fund v Scottish North Sea Oil. We can only dream sadly.
