Weekly Paper Review – July 20th

Posted by jamesdearsley on July 20, 2009

Helly everyone,

A quite week this week with regard articles on Property. I have discussed a few articles however (you can listen to thepapersAudio guide if you click on the left of the screen in the “Box.net application”).

Mainly there is talk about the mortgage market starting to thaw a little bit and buyer enquires up to a 10 year high – all fantastic news – and now all we need is the product. There are a lot of people calling for the “W” shape recovery and it is all pointing to this theory at the moment. It is certainly going to be an interesting time for the property market over coming months.

Have a good week.

Weekly Paper Review – June 1st

Posted by jamesdearsley on June 1, 2009

papersHello everyone and welcome to a new month!

There was quite a lot of house news this week in the papers and mainly focuesd on the UK market which showed some good figures last week. Find on the left hand side of this blog the “Box.net” application with my review on the papers. I also give some insight into my thoughts on the UK market looking at a “W” shaped recovery rather than a “V” shaped one which I think is quite evident at the moment with regard the latest housing figures.

Some of the articles I cover are in the links below if you expand out the article. I hope it is of some help to you all. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend UK Newspaper Review…..

Posted by jamesdearsley on April 6, 2009

Hello everyone and welcome to a new week. On the “Box Net” application to the left of your screen you will find my first “Review of the Weekend Papers”. I hope that you will find this useful as this is mainly going to be distributed for all of my sales people across the world to keep up to date with the latest news. Maybe it will also be useful for you as well.

I am going to try to keep it to just 10 minutes long each week but I may pass comment on some of the articles that I have read and go on my own experience so you will have to excuse me if i go on a little bit longer but I will definately not be speaking for more than 15 minutes because I respect you are all busy people.

Feel free to comment on anything that you would like me to change or expand on.

Best wishes all and hope you have a good week.

James
