  1. I work for a Stockbroker (no, not that kind, we mostly take care of older investors' life savings or the proceeds of selling small businesses). Anyhow, recently there has been a flurry of 'investment opportunities' emailed to the staff in the form of 4% Bonds issued by property developers. That means they can't (or don't want to) shift enough to clients. Nice of them to try to palm them off on the staff! Fortunately we are clued up enough not to bite. What I find most interesting about this is that similar property bonds offering 8-12%, 2 or 3 years ago were being snapped up.
  2. This is a plug for a YouTube channel I follow. MGTOW Money Very inciteful. It is an American with the nom de plume of 'John Galt'. MGTOW or not I'm sure that it may be of use to some of you on here with more cash to invest than I do.
  3. Posted this on the News blog, but as my submissions never seem to appear there, I thought I'd post it here too: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/oct/13/properties-seized-assets-corrupt-cash-crackdown-criminal-finances-bill-tax-haven We'll see how this pans out; but if it has any teeth at all, then it's yet another measure that will discourage foreign "investment" (cough). We've had a drip-drip-drip of legislation this year, all designed to discourage (in one way or another) the idea that property is simply an investment vehicle - and sooner or later, it has to bite. And while I'm ever the cynic, I increasingly feel that our new Prime Minister is one of those rare and elusive of creatures - someone with backbone and a belief in doing what's right, rather than what lines one's own pockets. We shall see, we shall see. Interesting times.
  4. http://techcrunch.com/2016/06/07/a-startup-that-pays-cash-to-buy-homes-now-offers-money-back-guarantee/ A San Francisco-based startup disrupting the worst VC investment ever category. "Wu says Opendoor has also raised “hundreds of millions of dollars” in debt in order to carry the homes on its balance sheet while it works toward re-selling them." "To keep from buying any real lemons, Opendoor won’t purchase any home built before 1960. It also sticks with homes that range in value from $100,000 to $600,000, which apparently covers 90 percent of homes in the U.S." "Most obviously, if the market were to turn sharply, Opendoor could be stuck holding properties it can’t sell. But Wu argues the frictionless marketplace that Opendoor is creating more than makes up for that risk." "As for profitability, Wu says Opendoor isn’t focused on it just now, despite nervousness in the investor market. Opendoor is purchasing more than $50 million worth of homes in Phoenix a month, and $25 million per month in Dallas." No mention of international expansion or UK partnerships, unfortunately. /s
  5. Mods - feel free to merge with existing TTIP threads, but if possible can we leave this up for a little while beforehand so that this particular development gets some attention?
  6. Good afternoon All, First post so go easy. I am seriously considering the possibility of buying a property to let - as an investments for the future. I have absolutely no experience in this area. I have done plenty of reading up on the subject but what I would really like to hear are the experiences and tips etc of people who have done it before. Anything you wish to share, no matter how big or small would be great. Thank you!!
  7. Hi All Don't know if this has been mentioned or discussed but if Scotland votes for independence many jobs will eventually be clawed back to the UK that are currently out stationed in Scotland. The list includes all military bases especially Faslane....UK Government offices, HMRC in Glasgow BAE ship yards....Finanical services et al. My point being if these jobs have to come back to the UK will N.Ireland reap the benefit in terms of major job opportunites, housing shortages and maybe immigration. Any thoughts....
