    No because then you have the costs have renovating them. I wouldn't buy house at all.
    But renovating a house isn't that expensive if you know the right people?? seriously, you'll save a **** ton of money this way since many battered old houses are going for next to nothing.

    I would like to have some fun and I'm happy with 40k a year at 21 (reinvest this of course). I'm at uni right now so don't need my own house, and I live with my parents during the holidays, they own 3 houses themselves.
    But you are doing it in a very complicated way and making it harder and more risky than it needs to be. I said if you are lucky 40k. Most likely would be 30-35k.

    But you would never want to use it in case you damaged it. And what is the point in having a gun if you can't use it. To be honest I would rather get one of these. Sure I don't have a need for .50 Beowulf but look how sexy it is.

    To show off how posh and rich you are at the gun club?

    Hmm. Not what I'd call sexy by any means but whatever floats your boat. I'd still prefer the ornate and opalescent decoration of an old Purdey and the smooth, silver long barrel. That looks more like a military gun than a classic hunting rifle

    Yeah and those battered old house cost money to fix to a high enough standard, plus the regulations, taxes, insurance and so on. So it doesn't work out at returns higher than renting or on the stock market. It is all between 4-6%. Just with the stock market you have less hassle. I know people the idea of owning something. However I have got 6% a year from the stock market.

    House prices mostly will still go up/be stable, putting it all on bonds and stocks is too risky imo. After I graduate in 2 years I'd be making ~£25k but I'd probably start my own business with the funds.

    That depends where you are. In some places they will drop. However the price of the house doesn't matter if you are renting. So you should be thinking about the rental market and if that will increase or decrease. You are at the mid level of the price for rents. So less people looking to rent and less competition than the lower level. So you may want £1,000 a month, but you could get 800 a month a year from now. Then you have a problem of people not renting for months. So you have no income at all. Stocks aren't risky, it depends which plan you use. Some things are risky, other things aren't.

    Why would you go to gun club with a pair shotguns? Surely you would go on a shoot with your custom made Holland and Holland Range Rover. And if you simply wanted to show off how rich you were you would go for the Damascus barrels they are the definition of sexy.

    That "military" rifle has enough power to take down elephant in one shot.
