Hi all A very particular constellation of circumstances means I am considering buying a small property as a hedge against debasement of sterling: 1) I am about to receive an unexpected cash payment equivalent to just over 40% of my net worth. 2) My planned move to Australia has fallen through. 3) I think the Bank of England will push on the string of QE ever harder and this will lead to stagflation. Even with 15% exposure to precious metals and purchasing all the equities I like the look of I still find myself with greater than 60% of my net worth in cash. I am therefore thinking about buying a flat on the West Sussex coast. This would cost just under 40% of my net worth and would be a 'home base' to live in when I'm not renting a room to work various jobs around the south of England. I believe I can buy one for a 2002 - 2004 price. Any thoughts? Will
