Age: 25 year old buachaill
Family status:** Married 7 months ago
Occupation: Customer Support - interesting* fact, my company was highlighted on TV3’s ‘How safe is your Job?’ special a few weeks ago
- May not be actually interesting
Housing status: Renting an apartment slap-bang in the city centre of Dublin, FTB buyer status safe in hand. The wife was pushing to buy about a year ago, but I pushed back, using the Pin as backup . Building up savings nicely now, the majority of which will probably go to a deposit.
AAM status: Brendan who? I’ve only gone then as a click-through from some links posted here. The place annoys me for a few reasons. The moderation is a bit ludicrous. I’ve also seen some of the horror stories and head-in-the-sand moments and it’s opened my eyes to the fact that I was one of the those ostriches until not so long ago.
Views on the property crash: Not sure what to make of it to be honest - along with the ol’ credit crunch. Part of me wants to revel in the glee of it, but part of me wonders, ‘where will it all end’?
Timeline for the crash: No eyed deer.
Smug factor: Ambivalent at the moment - sometimes I take some glee from reports of specuvestors falling on their faces - sometimes the tear-jerk stories pull at the heart-strings. I’m probably a bit young to think I’ve missed out on the boom, so i’m not all that smug in the bust.
Where would I buy property? I’d like to think that the North Dublin city coastline will fall in my price range in the coming months/years - Clontarf, Killester, Raheny, Sutton, and so on along the transport routes.
