    My aunt bought a house in Walton on Thames just outside London in 1999. It backs onto the river Thames.

    She paid £550,000 for it back then, but had a mortgage as both her and her husband are general managers of popular companies.

    Now, the house is worth just over £4,500,000, and she no longer has a mortgage and has just profited by doing nothing...

    Sure, she had to have a good career to get the mortgage, but this kind of inflation is just ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So jealous and angry that I live up North where stuff isn't worth jack ****!!

    It's London, what do you expect It is ridiculous. Can't say that I'd never choose to live there (not like I ever could anyway with the house pricing, plus expenses!).
