Tired Of High Cost Of Living? Try a Houseboat
I've just read an article by Agence France-Presse about spiking demand in London's red-hot property market for houseboats.
Stressed end-users of property have been forced to take to the water as a result of skyrocketing home prices.
One cost effective solution has become houseboats on canals and rivers in and around the capital city.
A key outcome of the trend now is increasing traffic on the waterways and pollution concerns.
Currently the government is facing new issues over controls for permanent mooring and also noise issues by land-based homeowners.
Expect more pressure on London real estate as investors and residents alike battle over coveted property in one of he world's top markets.
