The Unwelcome Guest ("TUG" for short)
27 of your earth years
House Buying Status:
On a flip of a coin between emigration and settling here for good. Just back from a round the world trip and am very tempted to say sod it all to the old sod.
Lurked very occasionally, never registered.
View on Irish Property:
Expecting city centre prices to fall back to 2005 and remain stable. Expecting price corrections of major order (probably in the region of 20% reduction on 2005 prices) in undesirable locations, commuter belt and especially in the commuter counties.
Timeline for Price Correction:
3rd / 4th Quarter 2007
Where would I buy property:
Anywhere I could transfer my earning power and get the right combination of infrastructure, amenities, climate and culture. Currently investigating Canada and New Zealand. Would ideally like a little place in Ushuaia, Argentina someday!
