What if we sold this place and rented a nice new place? R says we now live in a slum, no better than a public housing commission tower block. We might ask for $1.15 million and accept $1 million. I guess it is not a slum. How long would that last at $800 pw rental for something similar?
More interesting, what would AU$1 million buy for us in London? Conversion = £600,000 or €700,000. Ok, we could have a reasonable 2 bed flat in say Lancaster Gate in London. If we added a little, we could be in the cheapest 2 bed place in Paddington. We could buy a very nice 2 bed in East London, Hackney Wick, where Pants once lived.
What if we were neighbours of John Gray of Wales? London Road sounds good, 3 bed house for £230,000. It is ugly though.
Who else do I know in Europe? Gattina, right, we could buy a nice 3 bed apartment with this view in Waterloo for €645,000. Oh, sorry, that is looking down on the building, not the view. Very nice inside with 3 lavvies, lovey.
We loved Budapest, but our Friend in Japan was there last year and while she too loved Budapest, she loved Prague even more. Hmm, we have 18 million of Czech currency. Ok, reverting to £ because I don't know the currency at all, £300,000 for a stunning apartment in the best location, on the Vltava River, of course.
Over to you Gosia. Could we buy a nice apartment in Katowice with 3 million zloty? The Rawa does not look so nice to live near, so maybe a lake with a tram going past. Where is that? And 3 bedrooms. Maybe better to buy in Warsaw with a nice view over the Vistula. Would we get something nice there for 3 million zloty?
