Hi Everyone,

Sorry but I was away last week and nowhere near a computer to give my thoughts on last weeks news but there were some good stories this weekend, though conflicting. Please see my audio guide to the left of your screen.

Comment includes – The UK market picking up on the back of figures from the US property market. The Turkish property market going upmarket and the Spanish Golf Resorts having a mixed time.

Some articles that i have been commenting on can be found here:

http://tinyurl.com/ccseho  – Student buy to let market

I hope this helps everyone,

Best wishes.
