< 20:00 Kirstie and Phil: Where Best to Invest

You can still make money from property, you just need to know where to look... and Kirstie and Phil show you as they count down the ten best places to invest in the UK.>

From the Radio Times:

<Kirstie and Phil: Where Best to Invest

8:00pm - 9:00pm

Channel 4

VIDEO Plus+: 9854

Subtitled

There's something very smug about this programme, a companion to last year's similarly pleased-with-itself Best and Worst Places to Live in the UK, which sets out to find the best places in Britain to invest in buy-to-let properties. Maybe it's the usually likeable Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer, who have turned overnight into 1960s children's TV presenters, over-emphasising words and mugging to the camera in arch little asides. Or maybe it's just that I don't really care very much about the programme's narrow target audience. Anyway, if you have a few bob to spare, look for places with a big 20-35 demographic, possibly with a university or lots of hospitals.

RT reviewer: Alison Graham >

It might be aimed at a narrow target audience but they are an overly optimistic narrow minded lot fitted with horse blinkers. Time the blinkers come off though. :)

Yet more property ramping from the odious 'fat woman' and her lisping side-kick.

The programme's subject, BTL, is a clear acknowledgement that the only way to prop up the UK's fragile property market is by ramping a sector that has now totally displaced the FTB market.

It will all end in tears for the naive amateurs who will be taken in by this nonsense.

And there I was thinking that many university towns now have an oversupply of student rentals as many unis had built their own halls of residence.

Sheffield certainly seems to fit into this category (and they're in the process of building even more).

Good! I'd rather the money goes to unis than BTLers

It's a testament to the lazy, sloppy research that obviously accompanied this programme-making that they have not discovered the extent to which student accomodation issues have already been addressed nationwide.

They should have spoken to Blair who bought disasterously in Bristol on the same mistaken assumption.

Reworded -An overly optimistic narrow minded audience fitted up by a horse and a blinker (or vaguely rhyming word)

Still awaiting a reply from Channel 4 on a complaint about this unflushable :angry:

Investment 'experts' who can't even get the comparison to other investments correct on the trailer :rolleyes:

The place to buy certainly isn't a flat in Central Birmingham see post

http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...showtopic=28623

if that is not proof enough (some may say it will fetch much more at auction)

look at these same complex

For sale at £199,950 (bought Jun 2003 at £221,500)

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-109...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy

and "Must be Sold" bought for circa £225 now SSTC at £175k it's empty so probably a repo
