money people: CASE STUDY.

Byline: Edited by Simon Read

PART-TIME DJ Nick Fisher is one of the lucky ones - his flat has risen in value by 60 per cent.

He bought his pounds 120,000 one-bed flat in Swindon, Wilts, for pounds 60,000 seven years ago. The 27-year-old bank worker took out an interest-only mortgage banking on prices rising so that he could pay off the mortgage and pocket a profit.

He said: "I knew I wouldn't stay in the flat for the term of the mortgage. But just in case I've been saving pounds 100 a month. I knew it was important to have a fall-back."
