So I was watching 'Houses under the Hammer' (or something like that) this morning (which is a treat as I'm crying my soul out at work), and even got a little bit of the Jeremy Kyle in, ANYWAY.... I was watching this program and this guy came on who bought a house in auction (I'm guessing he was about 35/40 as he had hair on his chin) for £380k. He then spent a silly amount on it (not divulged) and was told at the end that the combined value was about £1.4M (million)
Now I think that's great, don't get me wrong, but how do these people get such an amount of cash? I've watched other programs like 'Grand Designs', 'Houses for Scousers' and 'A Home with a Tormented Patio' (not sure if I really watched the last two) and there seems to be along line of people in their middle 30's with oodles of cash....
... which is great but where are they getting their money from? 'Oh, we bought it for £200k and have spent £1.7 trillion on it and now it's worth the same as Cuba'.
I work hard. I work 10/12 hour days in my own business and I've guesstimate that I will be 245 and a half before I can say or do anything like what these people do (and say).
Do they live somewhere I don't know about? Does living north of London make you THIS out of touch?
I think it's great by the way..... honest.
