Don’t stretch yourself too much with a mortgage. Buy within your means. It’s not worth the sleepless nights.— Sarah Beeny
The most bumbling Sarah Beeny quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
In any market, in any country, there are developers who make money.
So I say all of this doom and gloom, but there will always be people who make money, because people always want homes.
Positive things happen to positive people.
For me adulthood is realising that there are no grown-ups and everyone else is winging it.
Energy efficiency should be on the priority list for all home improvement work these days. Canny builders will be able to provide homeowners with energy efficient measures which help them to save money and the planet.
I kind of hate to be the voice of doom, but I just can't see how prices can't go down. I think people have actually forgotten that property prices can decrease. There's this feeling that they just won't fall, but, of course, that's not true.
Love's a weird one, isn't it? I've never told my husband Graham that I love him.
He's never told me either. I think it started as a bit of a joke. We just decided never to say it.
I made a conscious decision to earn enough to be able to choose my husband rather than not have a career and marry someone who would have to earn enough for us both to live on.
Doing a job badly and then getting someone in to sort it out can be much more expensive than getting someone in to do the job properly in the first place.
If you really love property, and buildings, lifestyles and how people live, that's a good reason for going into development.
I have never watched property programmes.
I watch Property Ladder, because I feel it's very rude for a director to work very hard on a programme and you can't be bothered to even watch it. So I do watch it, but I have to turn away when I'm on screen. It's quite unpleasant seeing myself up there.
I think a lot of people were under the impression that property development was a way of becoming a millionaire in six months, while doing nothing, and I don't think that's the case. And I'm not sure it ever has been, really.
