Over development on holiday

I went away on holiday last week for a week, it was a long time coming. Just having to be out of the office dipping my toe in the sapphire pool was a relief, not that I do love my job of course. We have many satisfied ex-home owners who have sold their property in double quick time. One proposal that many sellers have opted for is the shared equity agreement that means that we have all the bother tenanting/maintaining the property and you have the benefit of sharing the profits at the end. And quite a few people have come back to us to sell another property in the future.

Anyway, back to the holiday we flew to Canary Isles on an all-inclusive deal. It was very good (well done Thomson), you really did not have to get your wallet out at all. Now I am not a good relaxation type, I wanted to explore so most days I left the wife at the pool and set out. It was a blast at the salt mines; I saw sharks just a few metres away as I was standing in the sea – a little bit close for comfort.

And a lot of development, 100s of flats in a middle of nowhere by the side of the road. 80% sold to British buyers and often there was a site alongside with concrete posts coming out of the ground. We have been to this island before in 2008 and now there is more development but none of the existing flats/houses are completed. It is just crazy – the locals can not rent or buy these expensive flats, they can not afford it. Now I was very comfortable in my lovely hotel, it was gorgeous and very reasonable. There was no way that I was going to shell out for a flat, with all these hidden charges, no hope in hell to recoup the costs by renting. If you are thinking of moving out of the country (Britain) just rent for a year – if you are emigrating the shared equity deal is one of your options. The UK is a great place to hold property – dont sell out because you might regret it.
