Is the property boom over? (Half time report)

How are Rob & Rob’s predictions faring?

It’s been a bonkers start to the year, and it’s fair to say that a lot of unpredictable things have happened.

So, we thought it’s about time we do a little check-in on how Rob & Rob’s predictions are faring at the half-way point.

From top performing cities to national property growth, the London market, inflation, Bitcoin and so much more… the guys placed their bets on what would happen in 2022.

So, tune in as we dig into the numbers and see how right (or wrong) they are so far!

Plus, they’ll be answering the question that’s on everyone’s lips right now – is the property boom coming to an end?

In the news 

This week’s news story could divide our listeners, as depending on how you view the world this could be great news or really worrying as UK mortgage lenders told they can scrap affordability rule for buyers.

It’s official, the Bank of England have scraped affordability rules and buyers will no longer need to undergo a stress test.

Could this be incredible as it helps more people get their foot on the ladder or is it a recipe for disaster with a potential repeat of 2008?

What do Rob & Rob think?

Portfolio news

Hub Extra 

If your TBR (to be read) list wasn’t already long enough we’ve got a cracking book recommendation coming your way!

You know we love a good self-improvement book here at Property Hub and Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman is the time management book with a twist that you need in your life.

We roughly get four thousand weeks in our lifetimes, but that doesn’t mean you’ll accomplish everything you want to in life, and this book will help you come to terms with that.

Nothing can ever be perfect, and whilst that can feel like a bitter pill to swallow, it’s okay, and Oliver highlights the beauty of constructing a meaningful life and embracing your limitations.
