  1. Ah I see, you're the guy that comes here to remind everyone how wrong they were a year ago. Keep up the good work, very noble.
  2. And I'll give you the same response that I gave. They should go to the same places they've always gone because the UK is on a massive decline and has been for quite some time. It's not just about house prices. You can say, well houses have increased everywhere, but how many "average houses" include the poxy little boxes you get over here. The country is well overpopulated, breaking apart at the seems. Wheeling out North Korea in comparison is a ridiculous example.
  3. While you're patting yourself on the back for buying one no? Like to stand out even though it's really not that big a deal?
  4. Erm, yeah. Houses are cheaper to construct in the US because of their abundance of wood - significant plus point, plus as you say land is a scarce resource here. Of course if you compare global cities they're going to be similar, but that's not what's being compared is it. Why would anyone chose a more difficult life over a simpler one long term ?
  5. No, it's about personal experiences. As an entrepreneur that's lived in the US I definitely regret setting up my business here. Even though it's been profitable my personal experience is there really is little overall incentive. I guess a chap who's patting their own back for buying a house (I bought my first when I was 23), a country which is property obsessed is going to suit you because there's no other way you're going to be able to make money.
  6. Oh my apologies, France is lower. I agree about massive upheaval, which is why I stated that it would be advise to the young. Why bother with a declining country if you're young and skilled.
  7. I despise the left I'm not leaving, already said that. Average US house price 4 x earnings, average UK house price over 9. Yes, comparing like for like, you get a better house, more affordable living, and the salaries are higher. Any more ridiculous generalisations to add to your diatribe?
  8. Zero research, apart from the fact that all of the quality of life indexes based on extensive research have put all of those countries higher than the UK for many years with the UK on a continual decline.
  9. Well according to that chart US has it worse than the UK. Laughable. I'll be telling the kiddies to move to Scunthorpe.
  10. Or if you want a direct price comparison https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/8662-Tanglewood-Trl_Chagrin-Falls_OH_44023_M43453-26577 https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78034680#/
  11. https://www.french-property.com/sale-property/1630-B20-104 https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/105383825#/ Is this what you mean by likewise property price inflation?
  12. Likewise property price inflation? Have you seen taken a quick look at comparable for those countries compare to here?
  13. So many of us have been in the same position. Sick of renting, don't really want to purchase in this market but have to stomach it.
  14. Spain, the USA, France,Germany, Canada and New Zealand are the top destinations. However emigration to the EU has gone up around 30% since Brexit and is expected to increase unsurprisingly.
  15. Well yes, of course. I would have been the same had I lived in this era where it costs a fortune for an education, a house, and there's massive pressure at an early age, whereby seemingly there is no future. If you want to generalise a generation try looking in the mirror and look at the sh1t show left behind for this lot. Nothing to be proud of.
  16. Well if we're going to do generalisations they're also the most mobile international tech savvy generation too
  17. I was looking at it before brexit, but it's just too complicated now. People suddenly cottoned onto WFH, the young will cotton on to getting the hell out of the UK. It's coming.
  18. Cost of housing in North America is not expensive relative to wage. There was a ranking system done somewhere, UK was well down the scale for affordability compared to most places.
  19. Yeah people are extending all over instead of moving If I didn't have ties I would be long gone
  20. Be wary of buying a do-upper right now, builders/materials expense is going up and lots of hassle Very difficult to balance against fire as it's not purely a financial decision
  21. London’s Sky Pool: a disaster that’s already happened https://www.ft.com/content/02b0a95f-e952-4acd-b01f-9e14660a9fe5
  22. I've come to the conclusion that it's a monstrosity. Absolutely ludicrous waste of money.
