90: HOTSPOTS for 2006 (reminder)


We have had a number of request for our list of UK 2006 Property Investing hotspots which we prepared in December 2005 - we issued this as Special Report 57 on 28th January 2006. We enclose this listing in a more prominant position to help you. 

We update this list on an annual basis in December each year. Rather than selectively sending by email, we thought it most efficient to issue this to our website visitors. If you have any comments or questions regarding this list, please contact us on

If you have any different views, please advise us - if we receive enough response, we might issue another report with a summary of your feedback (only mentioning your view - with no mention of contributors names - e.g. following appropriate confidentiality).
