    £50k would make a big difference. Could pay off my remaining mortgage 40k, put the house up for rent and using the remaining 10k to buy a second home to live in and have most of the new mortgage paid for by rent on first house.

    Makes me feel a bit sick when people get million £ bonuses like its nothing lol

    I've seen a house I like for £750k
    £250k for a couple of really decent cars

    That's 1m

    What else......?

    That's daydreaming.....the amount to change my life. Probably a hell of a lot less.
    £200k would be perfect.

    Eh?

    Half a mill is plenty enough to buy a decent house in London.

    Over £50 million should do it.

    £20k would be life changing for me, I’d clear a few debts, help out a struggling friend and have a bit sat in the bank.

    Knowing a few people with serious amounts of money behind them makes me not crave it, it does not buy happiness nor success in either business nor personal relationships, it makes life easier (boring from what I’m told!) but it - a huge amount - isn’t the saviour people think.

    No pockets on shrouds nor roof racks on hearses.....

    Depends on the scale of 'life changing' I guess.

    £20k would clear all our debts apart from the mortgage and free up a noticeable amount of additional disposable income.
    £50k would do the above and pay for a loft conversion, adding a much needed extra proper sized bedroom.
    £200k would pay off the balance of the mortgage
    £250k - all of the above

    Any of those would have a noticeable improvement on life and our standard of living.

    Any of you guys work for Richer Sounds, could be nice payout coming if you've been with them for a while (£1k for each year, one guy has been there 40 years :D ).

    The dream amount would be a few million, enough to buy a nice house, nice car, have some toys and not have to worry about the future money wise but thats just pipe dream winning the lottery stuff.

    Not in London. Maybe if you go right to the outskirts or somewhere run down and awful. You'll maybe get a 2 bed somewhere like that within the M25.

    Some people enjoy traveling believe it or not.
    One of my mates buys plane tickets and sometimes never leaves the airport until flying back.

    Sorry mate, that’s rubbish. I live here and know the prices, You can get a nice 3-4 bed house in Greenwich for half a mill.

    An example, there’s dozens more https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59056365.html

    That’s ok. I wish it was as bad as you say, our house would be worth a fortune :p

    It is very much dependent on area though obviously. Where I used to live, half a mill would only get you a 2 bed flat now. But there’s still quite affordable areas around.

    As would mine, but it would make upgrading difficult.

    Not if you had enough of the working life and was happy enough to move away from the rat race.
