Two Anecdotals I Didn't Want To Post

Recommended Posts

My nanny has just sold her flat for £172,000 - she paid £195,000 in 2004, she has to move because next door are renting the flat and are so noisy she hasn't slept for weeks. She cannot complain because she is terrified it'll affect her flat sale.

My friends bought a house for £128k in 2004, a pokey shoe box with three tiny bedrooms, they have scrimpt and saved and ended up £25k in debt a combination of trying to repay the mortgage and her not working. They have now split up and the house is on the market for £139k, so if they get the full asking price they have lived hand to mouth and broken up a family under the pressure for about £4k a piece after fees. I've earnt more than that selling bits and pieces on ebay.
