Too many people are 'dreaming' about the gas find as though it is some sort of saviour. Listen to the experts, they say if it does happen (still an 'if') it will take at least 7 years before any benefit is seen.
But did you actually make any offers on property Kempo? an 'asking' price is just a guide usually.
I was 'asking' £325k for a property 12 months ago, but soon reduced it to £295k when I wasn't getting much interest
We all live in hope (and die in dispair)
