    Thanks. Thinking about buying a second property as I don't live in the one that's mine and never have done! It's let, so there have been sacrifices along the way. The way pensions are going, I think I need to do something for later on in life!

    :beer: Well done! I'm so jealous ;) but pleased for you too!:p
  • Wow. Not many people in your position, well done!
    You do want to think about your future though and a buy to let is the perfect way to do that right now.
    Buyers Market and all that. Trust me, if I had the option, I wouldn't hesitate! Im an EA and seen some fantastic opportunities come and go, frustrating!

    Well got a holiday to Portugal in Feb and then I'll see about getting a decent car instead of driving round in a banger as I have been doing for the past 10 years! All about priorities. After that I'll see about buying again.
