Property Blog World: Nicolas Cage, Kim Clijsters and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.

14 Sep

Monday is here again, and with it comes our weekly blog round-up. Here’s what’s been happening on some of our favourite property blogs.

There’s an eclectic mix of musings over on the Rat and Mouse right now. Our favourites include the effects of the recession on the UK’s dog population, and how Jennifer Aniston thinks buying a house is like falling in love. As Jen has a reputation for being unlucky in love, we’re not sure what that says about her property portfolio.

Checking out the Real Estalker to see how the other half live is a favourite pastime of ours. This week, they’re snooping around the very modest (by celeb standards) New Jersey home of tennis ace Kim Clijsters and lamenting the woes of Nicholas Cage, whose Bel Air mansion has been sitting on the market gathering dust and price reductions for so long, the Oscar-winner has been forced to put it up for auction.

A Slice of the Property Cake’s Mr Jackson is advising how to sell your house in a buyers’ market. Perhaps Mr Cage should get in touch for a few tips.

Over on Winging It, Mike’s graph of the week looks at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ latest lettings market survey. Meanwhile Joss shares her pick of the farms currently on the market in this week’s five to view.

And Chesterton Humberts’ House Historian has been delving into the past of an unassuming terraced house in Chelsea, which was the former home of playwright Douglas Jerrold and artist Mary Moser.
