Thanks for all your hard work paul - lots to look at and think about.


You are welcome doccyboy. Hope you find the info useful. The next auction is on in P'Down on Wed 19th March so hopefully I'll be at that one too. It is a good free evening out after all! I can highly recommend it. :lol:

Well done Paul, I fear those buying now thinking they got a bargain might still caught in the bull trap
http://www.investope.../b/bulltrap.asp

p.s. like the new avatar


I fear you might well be right Vespasian on the Bull Trap - hence up/out bidding seemed subdued - well at least to an auction newbie such as myself.

I kid you not though - the auctioneer last night must have said "Cheap as chips", David Dickinson style at least 5 times last night on 5 different lots. It just came across as clutching at straws to humour the audience in the face of subdued bidding. It was comical and if truth be told a little sad.

Hi Rock-n-Roll,

Glad the info is useful. Always helps to have a bit of knowledge about these things when dealing with EA's. Forewarned is forearmed as they say.

There was no indication as to who was actually selling ie. banks or private sellers. That info was not provided. Numerous people (couples mostly) departed the room after various lots were auctioned so:

(1). Either that was the property that they wanted to bid on last night and there was nothing else to interest them

or

(2). That was their own property being auctioned off

It was hard to tell really - but my intuition tells me and I have a hunch (nothing more) that it was probably the latter ie. (2). that we and they had just witnessed their own property actually being auctioned off.

Yeah thanks Paul65. Its great to see the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak.
As I posted on the N.Ireland thread a family member was speaking to a EA who says that its not just the small houses that are not selling its also the large houses now, funny that, one needs buyers at the bottom to have a property chain!
Also was on the way to footie with friends and one mentioned how his sisters house had been on the market for a whole month and not had a single inquiry about it! Its a lovely house in a very good area and normally would be snapped up.

Its amazing how quickly the mood has changed. Friends who were saying well the prices will stay were they had gone up to and not fall are now saying oh well they had to fall back a bit but they won't go any lower! I wonder what they will be saying in six months!

6th February 2008 at Portadown

http://www.wilsonsau...y_portadown.asp


Next upcoming Wilson's Property Auction is Thurs 21st Feb 2008 at the Mallusk Complex. http://www.wilsonsau...rty_mallusk.asp

Anyone thinking of going along to this one? I can't make it to this one but would welcome any information regarding actual sales from the night so that I can maintain the info on http://nipropertyauc...ooglepages.com/

Can anyone out there on this forum help me?

By the way this auction has a lovely 2 bed townhouse in Ohio, Guide price is £15k http://www.wilsonsau...ew.asp?id=28698
First line of the description text reads

DIRECT FROM THE MORTGAGE REPOSSESSION COMPANY

I wonder how long it will be before some of our properties here start having this tag line added. :blink: It will be interesting to see what this shifts for.

Is that the correct price? $9,900?

So why are the rising stars in Asia proving so successful?

Mr Schleicher says it's a philosophical difference - expecting all pupils to make the grade, rather than a "sorting mechanism" to find a chosen few. He says anyone can create an education system where a few at the top succeed, the real challenge is to push through the entire cohort. In China, he says this means using the best teachers in the toughest schools.
