    You could buy now , but you need to find a bargain ... offer 40 % below the asking price.

    Preferably something with a roof, kitchen, bathroom, electrical points and some space to put stuff in etc..that doesn't belong to someone else.

    And not a car, or a caravan, or a hotel room.
    Whatever...

    2010/2011 will be the bottom of the crash, in my opinion.
