Houzz isn't a political forum, and this article is perfectly reasonable within its context. Nonetheless, I just have to get this off my chest (!): market forces don't apply to items of necessity (shelter, travel, healthcare and basic food) in the same way they do to items of choice (I did study Economics, albeit aeons ago, so I have a vague idea of the subject). Thank you. That is all :).

If Suesigngirl fancies relocating to Wick in Caithness, a 3 bed semi will cost her £125k and a flat under £70k. If she works in the public sector, there are likely vacancies.

Would love to as Caithness is beautiful. But we both have all of our extended family in the midlands so we're stuck here for now and will be buying a very tiny house and making do!
