A MIDDLE class child is on the lookout for a second treehouse in order to make a killing on the property market.
Seven-year-old Tom Logan is keen to purchase a timber construction one-storey property up a tree that will double in price and could be let out to students.
Logan said: “I’m after a well-maintained treehouse that will shoot up in value thanks to Britain’s insane property prices. I’m almost eight now, so it’s about time I started investing in property.
“I’m not planning to play in it, it’s an investment pure and simple. Who knows, in a few years I could have a nice little portfolio of buy-to-let treehouses.”
Indicating a corner of his parents’ garden, Logan said: “Something in this area would be good. It’s close to all the amenities, like the paddling pool and swing.
“It’s also got easy access to transport links as it’s right near the driveway. A letting agency would be keen on that.”
Logan said he intended to spend the minimum amount furnishing the new property and would only be providing several half-finished Capri Suns and a ‘No gurls alowed’ sign.
