Investment News – Looking long-term in a build-to-order market

Investment News – Looking long term,

They say “no news is good news” and I had to do some serious sniffing around this week to dig up some original stories for you.

We’ll be taking a look at build-to-order property market and how developers are now basing their business on this new model and what it means for us. We’ll take a look at what effect the recession is having on house prices and the fact revised unemployment figures that are expected to get to 3 million before the end of the recession.

I’ll also be taking a look at investing in gold and how it has traditionally the fall back investment in times of crisis. We’ll also chat about “toxic loan books” what they are, how they affect the banks and how they’re not all bad news for shareholders.

We finish off with an unadulterated, honest look at the lending situation (or lack because of that) and where the prices are bottoming out. I’ll finish off by explaining why, in this market you need to, have to be looking 3-5 years down the track with your investments.

Live with passion,
