The information you need that will save you over R500 000, your marriage, and countless headaches.

Alright, let’s get to it. 👇🏽
• Interest Rates

South Africa’s historical interest rates (1956-2021)

What You should be asking;

“Are we entering into a hiking cycle”

If we are, researching is vital, you don’t want to be buying a liability, do you?

Most likely, Interest/R’s have floored and will ⬆️
• Asset or liability

Let’s settle this for once and for all. Yes, a house is an asset.

My definition though:

Asset =puts money in your pocket.

Liability = takes money out of your pocket.

The case studies in this thread will highlight the differences for you. #property

It is a currently a buyer's market in #Singapore due to the #Covid19 crisis hence property developers have to price property conservatively.

If you're #Singaporean, here's a thread on why you might want to consider a new private property 🏘️ in Singapore:

2/ Prior to 2013, people could easily flip #property and make tens of thousands just by buying an option to purchase.

Fast forward to 2013, various measures were introduced (#TDSR, #ABSD, #SSD)

This curbed demand lead to - /3…
3/ How is the #Singapore #RealEstate market different today?

- Healthy demand and less speculative buying
- Ample liquidity & low interest rates
- Declining unsold supply
- People are upsizing due to Work From Home (#WFH) changes…

This isn't an easy topic to address but I'll do my best to provide my thoughts via a simple generic🧵

#RealEstate isn't linear. It is multifactorial:

1) Country
2) Time period
3) Information asymmetry
4) Opportunity cost
5) Personality
6) Job security


2/ There is no guarantee for any gains in any investment vehicle. No guarantee in #RealEstate, #bitcoin, #Equities etc

As cliche as it sounds, the only constant is: Change.

History only provides a clue.

Simply put, yields are not guaranteed.

Back to factors 1 to 6
3/ #RealEstate differs from country to country.

In a jurisdiction where there are high capital gains tax or when the cost of borrowing is high, owning/investing in property might not make much sense.

In #Singapore, capital gains tax has been abolished

Great #Tory housing shame:
Third of ex-council homes owned by rich landlords…
The multi-millionaire son of a #Tory minister who presided over the controversial “right-to -buy” scheme is a buy-to-let landlord owning scores of former #council flats.

A Daily Mirror investigation found a third of ex-council homes sold in the 1980s under Margaret #Thatcher
were now owned by private landlords.
In one #London borough almost half of ex-#council properties are now sub-let to tenants.

Tycoon Charles #Gow and his wife own at least 40 ex-#council flats on one South #London estate.
His father Ian #Gow was one of Mrs #Thatcher’s top aides

One of Labour's #TheLeft Radicals ambitions was to push #climatealarmism to the maximum 👇

1/ create distraction
Another Labour ambition, tear down society, rebuild it with Marxism perspective

2/ make noise
"Create A Crisis 'Use a Crisis As Opportunity' to change"

Labour Mayors/Councils have a habit of turning nice areas into rundown over populated, conjested places local people just want to escape from

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal…
For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?

Big congrats to @nonfungibles on releasing their 2020 Annual Non-Fungible Tokens Report! @NathalieBcht, @latelier & I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with them on it:
Some key takeaways from the report & my personal observations a/t #NFTs. A long-ish 🧵👇:
MARKET SIZE: The NFT market had a historic 2020 - tripled in value, reaching $250m (in terms of value of all #Ethereum transactions on chain, so actual market size is even bigger). This is rapid growth for a space that’s just a few years old.
Market is still volatile & prone to speculation but more sophisticated use cases are emerging based on utility, community, competitive elements. All are prerequisites for a more mature market. For all the hype around crypto, it is #NFTs that offer some of the more promising uses.

So, Bhavdip Sanghavi (@bhavdip143), profiteer of the pump-and-dump or stock picking guru? Read on to find out… #tldr #hesaguru
PREAMBLE: I follow a few traders and investors, the first being Assad Tannous (@AsennaWealth). His posting of trading setups & willingness to explain his process was intriguing. As a former accountant, I can do fundamental analyses all day long to pick the investments I like.
What I lacked was a way to get the timing right, meaning potential 30-50% returns instead came in at 10-20%. A technical trader sharing his insight and expertise, and watching the banter between him and other traders, was an opportunity to learn and improve for free. #thanksassad

#Ingratitude gives birth to different problems.

You must ever be #grateful to the Lord and your spouse for the gift of #marriage. Learn to be appreciative of whatever your spouse does or gives, no matter how little. /1

#Xmas #Christmas #MotivationalQuotes #family
Sometimes, as a woman, your husband does not have enough means to take care of everything in the home. Learn to still be grateful for the little.

Be understanding. Life is truly in phases. What you can't afford today, will surely come tomorrow.

I know that there are some men
...that shirk their #responsibilities. Such #men are mere boys. But in a situation where the case is genuine, please bear with your #husband. Assist him where possible.

The #God of heaven is your Rewarder.

Το Ευρωπαϊκό Δικαστήριο των Δικαιωμάτων του Ανθρώπου καταδίκασε σήμερα την Ελλάδα να καταβάλει το ποσό των 312.500 ευρώ σε ιδιοκτήτρια ξενοδοχείου που τελούσε υπό κατάληψη, επειδή το κράτος δεν προστάτευσε αποτελεσματικά το δικαίωμά της στην ιδιοκτησία. #echr #property #thread
Το ξενοδοχείο είχε καταληφθεί για πάνω από 3 χρόνια από μετανάστες και αλληλέγγυους. Η ιδιοκτησία είχε κινηθεί νομικά ώστε το κράτος να εξώσει τους καταληψίες, αλλά τα αιτήματά της είτε απορρίφθηκαν, είτε δεν εξετάστηκαν καθόλου από τις Ελληνικές αρχές.
Μια απόφαση του Ειρηνοδικείου Αθηνών με την οποία διατάχθηκε η έξωση και απόδοση της νομής στην ιδιοκτήτρια δεν εκτελέστηκε από τις Αρχές. Κατά την διάρκεια των 3 ετών, η ιδιοκτήτρια αναγκάστηκε να πουλήσει το σπίτι της για να καλύψει τα χρέη που προέκυψαν από την κατάληψη:

Some funny goings on in #Liverpool under the stewardship of #JoeAnderson 👀

My current viewpoint might be influenced by some of the TV shows I watched during lockdown #Subura #Gomorrah #GangsOfLondon #LineOfDuty

But, it has a whiff of a Mafia fiefdom🤯…
- Merseyside Police investigating City Council
- Lancashire Police - #OperationSheridan
- Serious Fraud Office, North West Serious Crimes Unit & GMP investigating property scams
- Council finances not being signed off by an auditor for the last 5 years

Something smells fishy🐟👀
Now, I realise it sounds bonkers to link TV shows about the Italian Mafia and how they infiltrate local councils and municipalities - I mean, that wouldn't happen in Lancashire or Merseyside... would it!?

Well, ye. It would...

Have a look 👀…

#Thread on #ZahoorWatali Corrupt Businessman who siphoned money for terror links.
Zahoor Watali is a businessman from #Srinagar .He was a driver of #AbdulGhaniLone, the late #Hurriyat leader and he hails from #handwara. Image
Father of three #sons all #doctors, His elder #brother was #DIG police in early nineties. Can one imagine person which such stature can have #nefarious intentions of having links with #Terror Organisations. Image
#ZahoorWatali was arrested in 1990 by #police when some #anti-national #activists were found present in his house at #Baghat #Barzulla, #Srinagar. He was taken into custody along with #YaseenMalik, #SajjadGaniLone, #BilallLone and others and were jailed for eight months. Image

Quick answer: #rights. Did the work on this well over a decade ago, before #GDPR was even a twinkle in Jan's eye.

Longer answer: '#ownership' (just like rights) doesn't get you shit if it ain't #enforceable / #enforced *in practice*. Hence all the current effort going into...
...#redress - e.g. Lloyd vs @Google, and the tsunami behind that.

But a new FIELD of law (e.g. #InformationalPrivity*) may be required, 'cos it turns out treating #people and their #relationships as #property is as bad as treating 'em as #subjects...

...not #sovereigns of their data.

(Not forgetting that - on the evidence of human behaviour, power imbalances, etc. - many, if not most, wouldn't relish or even know what to do with such sovereign #responsibility, much less be able to wield it outside a #rights framework.)

Parlez-vous racisme [Thread] 👇

Current user base ~1 million @parler_app's
"#DeclarationOfInternetIndependence" is not the first we've seen & likely not the last:… with intriguing but unspecified notions such as: "The People, not the #TechTyrants, must...
...share in the value of #monetizing our data". Hmm... "share" how, exactly?

Parler is organised as a (US) Limited Liability Company, so is every user a #member? Or is that privilege reserved for its #owners, John Matze & Jared Thomson? And their #investors?

(Hints of #BXP...)
And @parler_app's #PrivacyPolicy:… explicitly states it'll use your data "For #marketing & #advertising purposes," i.e. its business model (like most of its "#TechTyrant" rivals) is to #profile its users.

Mohini Mansion, Colaba.
In what's predominantly a box-like structure the stunning curves upfront seem to be the highlight the architect wanted to showcase. Legendary filmmaker G.P. Sippy (#Sholay, #Andaz, Seeta aur Geeta) financed his film #Sazaa ImageImageImage
after selling the construction rights of another Art Deco building - Gobind Mahal, on Marine Drive; and went on to make a film called ‘Marine Drive’ (1955)! In ‘Sholay, the making of a classic’ @anupama.chopra narrates that he had property interests, especially in Colaba
and Churchgate. He reportedly originated the idea of building a co-operative society where flats could be sold directly (as they were rented before); and mentions Mohini Mansion along with Churchgate Mansion, Anand Niwas and Gopal Mansion as some of the buildings he dealt with.
