  1. They cant do anything about websites but if its printed then they can.
  2. How patronising. I understand but if you know that area you will know how challenging/impossible it will be to achieve what is being advertised in that area.
  3. Speaking from experience youd be amazed at how many ancient COBOL based systems are still in use with very large companies.
  4. Nope. I used to race bicycles in my youth and youd be amazed at how quickly and in control you can stop a well maintained push bike at 30mph. 30mph on a push bike is nothing like a motorbike doing 60mph. 30mph is absolutely pedestrian in terms of speed to a fit racing cyclist.
  5. Oh my word she's dull as dishwater to listen to. Edit: I worked my way through the PT link and that was a fascinating read.
  6. Based on my experience of living in two of those areas i would have to disagree.
  7. I don't think it's an issue of "snobbery"..
  8. Ely's a nice place with good transport links but as has been pointed out there are some, erm, not to my taste modern estates (no parking, gardens and you can be seen by roughly either houses when sat in your living room, etc) on the edges of the town. Car journeys will be improved when the A142 bypass is completed (currently late summer 2018). Wisbech and Chatteris are a bit too "local" for me. I have friends who live in March and I quite like the place. The downside of March is if you have to get to Cambridge or London the trains are quite limited compared to Ely (IIRC the last train to March from Cambridge is 20:30) and you're roughly 30 minutes further out than Ely to Cambridge by car.
  9. 'The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese' I think it's from a fortune cookie.
  10. LOL! Absolutely. Talk about being milked by a shill (Agent) bidder then convincing themselves that they got a bargain.
  11. I've removed my comment because I feel the topic would go off course and I'm not actually bothered if people love or hate Cambridge. On topic house prices fell in Cambridge by 10% in the last crash. We're not even in a crash and they fell 5.1% last year alone. It makes me wonder what the impact will be when we do experience a crash.
  12. Ognum got there first for me. Personally I have never warmed to Cambridge.
  13. The only people I know who gush about how amazing Cambridge is are ex-students or people who work for the University.
  14. I've worked two days a week from home for over ten years and on the whole it's been really positive. I get a lot more done because I'm not distracted and it negates the commute two days a week.
  15. That was due to emergency repairs and poor signalling.
  16. Agreed. BTLers I know have gone from boasting about their wealth to stressing about how they're going to cope with S24. Edited to add: Also in my area SE I'm seeing more and longer void periods on rental properties I pass on the way to work. Previously these have been void free but some are now four months void.
  17. Logically, for me, it's 3x salary. IIRC with developers it's 20% off the going rate of an equivalent new house on the development. Edit: the 20% figure is one I've read in the local Cambridge press a number of times whenever a new development mentions it'll provide "affordable" homes as part of the development.
  18. Can we stop calling them "BTL Investors" when they're thing more than high stakes speculators.
