26th February, 2015 BACK TO ALL PODCASTS

Back to all podcasts

Where’s the best place to invest in property in 2015? In this episode we share our opinions – and perhaps more importantly, our reasons behind them so you can do some research of your own.

We discuss:

  • Why to be wary when looking at certain affordability measures to decide if we’re in a bubble
  • Why we love London, but we’re not keen on its investment prospects right now
  • Where else in the country we would invest
  • The commuter belt areas that could do well this year
  • What to look for when assessing the investment prospects of any area
  • Why you might want to listen to Waitrose more than us (here’s where they’re opening this year)

It’s all in this week’s episode, so have a listen!

Resource of the week

There are plenty of logo generator websites, but they’re all uniformly awful. Except withoomph.com, which makes up for in quality what it lacks in a decent name.

All you need to do is put in the name of your business and a couple of keywords, and it spits out tens of possible logos – at least a couple of which were always pretty good when we were trying it out. Then just tweak the colour scheme, and pay £25 for a logo you can use anywhere.

We wouldn’t base an entire rebranding exercise around it, but for a cheap-and-cheerful logo to test out a new idea it can’t be beaten for speed and convenience.

News this week

Landlords to blame for lack of supply in the housing market, according to Rightmove.

Nothing to do with the complete lack of building enough houses for the last 10 years at least, then? But it’s interesting that supply is so restricted, as it suggests that prices will keep being squeezed upwards even when growth in prices elsewhere is hard to find.
