I did not know how and where to start in trying to express in few words some common sense and rationality on what is going in Finnish Finland peculiar housing and rental market.
Indeed, one has to travel around Europe in order to get enough distance for a better analysis on the situation, but if I have to put it in 2 words, it would be:
"Crap and Expensive"
Now in order to echo the words of the Finnish prime minister, the situation is bad but not as worse as the 1990's slump...I would like to extend his deep thinking by adding "NYT"...which basically mean "now" in Finnish cryptonic language. So indeed we are not as bad in the 1990's because the we are not yet there but not far. I suppose everything is deteriorating month after month, at almost all levels except in the showbiz (from Madonna to politicians corruption show).
That's it for now..switch off "the internet" and get a rest.
And those who are stress about buying...just have a rest of a year or two and relax... there is a better thing than dreaming about putting yourself between 4 walls.
