If you are hoping to get into the property game, you have probably been told by your dad, auntie or friend that now is the time to buy – “everyone is broke, you can pick up a real bargain now” they say, but is it true?
Lloyd’s Real Estate’s Lloyd Rees said despite the popular belief that everyone is selling their houses for next to nothing at the moment due to factors such as the weak economy, fact is there is not a flood of new listings of homes.
“The property market corrects itself all the time with fluctuations, but in my opinion there is never a good or bad time to purchase a property. Whatever the economy, you still have to have somewhere to live, so purchase the home you can afford, when you are ready,” said Rees.

Nothing makes you feel more guilty than packing your bags to go on holiday and having your furry friend look at you with those sad how-can-you-leave-me eyes.
The solution: take them with!
Before you and your furries get ready to chill out with the ocean breeze in your hair, check that you have covered the basic pet ethics house rules:
- Make sure your pet is socialised. There may be other furries on holiday with their families and you do not want to be the one causing a scene, so make sure Fluffy knows how to behave like a lady and that Bruno can keep his voice down.
- Being house trained is a must – no compromises.
- When you leave, make sure you take all of your pet with you, including the stray fluff on the coach.
