Property

Our property market in our
mega metro cities soared with
houses there fetching unheard
of high prices. It all seemed so
strange, remote from our little
provincial city as we saw it all
on TV and newspaper reports.

These changes in the property
market spread to other cities.
key cities in businesses to port
networks. Their house prices
climbed too, again out of reach
of first home buyers. Now
investors are buying these homes.

Even so we are surprised to
find that nice little house on our
nice little street, so ordinary,
was put up for sale at a very
high price.  My cousin was told by
her son to bid low, the agent said
the market was competitive. She
bid $15,000 above that price.

But that offer was beaten by a yet
higher bid – how much we wonder ?

My cousin will not be moving
into my street. She still bids
against other buyers for the few
houses for sale in our city.

  1. Property of land, is anathema. We are born kicking and screaming into this world. Only to be told to work all your life for a “Property”. Don’t believe this , is what our God intended? … sigh! Cheers Jamie

      1. We all interpret that differently, I guess? Which also leads to my own conclusion that God does not; think?

        What was it? Less than 2 years past, using the large Hadron machine searching for the “God Particle”? Maybe they neglected to search their own hearts? I dunno’?

        For myself God lives in my heart and in those hearts still beating. God is love, light, etc.

        Want to see God working? Any large telescope shows that. Plasma, Cosmic Rays, Electricity, As large as our world, solar, system and galaxy is. God’s world stretches further and stays connected with it all. Our petty foibles and eccentricities, really fade into pale when looking at a bigger picture?

        We are not given infinite time in these bodies. We are given infinite time within the universe. Our current action determine the future. Time seems to go only one way? People will profit from what is in hearts and minds. Telling us, only they may speak to God? While that is not, their only function. That one is the biggest lie. We are born with the ability to talk with God. First we have to understand that. Only universal love and empathy can do so.

        Cheers Jamie.

    1. What makes it scarier still for many of us is that a lot of the foreign speculators are Mainland Chinese, and there is already considerable concern about the Chinese influence in the Pacific region.

    What is the inherent factor in these individuals psyche that so drives one to the point of destruction! That insatiable desire for amassing wealth consumes their very being. The number of politicians and top officials who have lost their moral compass is astronomical. Power really does corrupt and it’s more addictive than the most potent drug. In his quest for that ultimate spot among the ‘elite,’ has Skerrit gotten himself so deep in this quagmire that he now seek to maintain control at any cost? Even as everyone he’s aligned himself with are taken into custody he is in a state of denial. Madueke is reportedly willing to tell all so Skerrit will soon face reality. https://thedominican.net/2017/08/police-seize-madueke-property.html

    Investing online sounds so interesting! I would like to know some more details about investing in real estate online. It’s just hard to trust agents because sometimes they all seem to say the same things, it’s hard for us to know who’s telling you genuine information.avoid foreclosure
