I... imagine it's time for me to get used to the fact that I'll never have a property.

Oh well - I kind of like renting. chiefly the part where I call the landlord whenever something breaks and he fixes it from his own pocket. I really love that bit.

True enough! My guy is sort of lovely, so I guess I'm lucky. Been with him for more than five years now. Hell, soon enough he will have owned the roof above my head for longer than my own parents.

Now? These trends have been going on for decades.

No. It's good for everybody forever. Interest rates will only go lower and prices will rise forever. Leverage up, it's a one way bet. When alotofhelp2buy comes out the government will lend the first 40%. What could go wrong?

Ps it's certainly not a pyramid scheme

Kinda. Prices trebled under Labour but the guardian didn't grumble so greatly back then as boom and bust was no more.

I enjoy how it compares Brixton and Belgravia.

Have you seen the houses in brixton?

330K for a house in walthamstow, now 400K. wow.

(I know I may have misconceptions, but last i heard of that area, was when a cop I train with told me he was there to break up a fight, and one guy was deceased by the time they got there, hit with some post someone tore off an old fence, i was under the sense you wouldn't feel safe getting home after dark)
