Thank you, very useful/interesting.

I thought that RH1 had peaked last year as there was a visible softening in the market.

GU21 is just silly and seems to be snapped up in days for desirable properties.

I still can't get over the sought after area description when it comes to a property located mid way between Leyton and Maryland stations. Expensive and overpriced - but sought after by whom - acid attackers?

Nice headline in the Evening standard.

Osbourne is quite blatant in his propaganda.

As stated previously if there is no job in London that lets you buy a mansion its down to Chinese capital controls.

I have a search alert on the shared ownership portal sharetobuy for a 40min commute radius round Victoria station.

Been seeing some strange activity recently, typically my budget limit has only thrown up 1 breeders, but 2 bidders seem to be coming up thick and fast now.  And also the first time I have seen rent drops so prominently advertised:

https://www.sharetobuy.com/sharedownershippropertydetails?id=22942&utm_source=property_details&utm_medium=showcase_properties_email&utm_campaign=Rent+reduction!+First+come+first+served!+-+2017%2F08%2F09+05%3A38%3A26

Wonder what the previous buyers in the development will think about paying a higher level of rent than newcomers? 

Has anyone seen anything similar in the shared ownership market?  And does anyone have any tools they use to track it?  So hard comparing things with the interplay of cost, rent and service charges

Tbh honest I agree that with sustained low interest rates and only gradual adjustments to property taxes, house prices won't crash, but just stagnate instead for a very long time.

I think they've been pushed up so quickly in a short space of time by BTlers and speculators receiving QE cash that an all out collapse is unavoidable as soon as there is a change in policy, any kind of a crisis or change in central bank policys,

 

i.e. now.


Banks wont survive without being able to lend.

With prices at extreme levels and everyone s**ting themselves about a collapse, there is only 1 course of action to take to get the market moving again.

As 2007 showed...neither the UK government nor the BoE is in charge.

Where you see the sold price? I am curious

On the front page of Rightmove go to "sold prices" then search by street name/postcode.  It gives sold prices back to 1995 and is very useful.

I don't think they will be. I think Rightmove just takes the description/photos from the current listing and includes them in the older, sold listing. Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong about this.

The price back in 2015, how we know if that included any discount for over 60s as same property is advertised now with the over 60s discount

Sometimes the earlier photos are on the page with the sold info and sometimes they seem to use the new ones.....don't know why.

Often the same property is listed twice with the "real" price and then at a discounted price for over 60s by a specialist company who do this as a type of "equity release" type thing. 

If you look on the sold price page, often it has a link which says "this house is currently on the market" and that will take you to the page where it's for sale now at the undiscounted price. 

Hope this helps (the over 60's discount thingy sure is annoying and confusing):)
