Re: Future estimates

If I have understood the question correctly. By my reckoning you are £105,000 short.

Re: Is this the time to buy?

I'd be inclined to sit tight, wait for the Grexit and the introduction of the New Drachma, then have a months holiday on a Greek Island where your pound will buy you twice the holiday it will today.
