I've spent a lot of time this year researching buy to let, as well as practically dealing with a lying tenant (you may know who she/they are!) I have the practical experience of living in and having improved and home now but I really do want to buy my own home. I have the money to do it, but most of it is in shares and I would only sell some if I felt they were overvalued. I have decent ideas but obviously need more practical experience of buying houses. I will keep working on this goal and accomplish!
