Indeed. I'll have to look out for something similar although I've always maintained that the Sheffield area is legging other parts of the country.

Can't find those houses on the Morris Dibben website.

In fairness it looks like a recently completed new build project to me.

Although from following threads on the forum about Southampton (with it's higher than average rate of repossession actions) the outlook doesn't look that good.

Hope this comes out ok .

Not a pic , but frfom "rightmove" . these flats are near me . They have been finished sionce before Christmas . They are still some avaliable . The ad's outside scream "40% SOLD"

Err ,doesn't that mean 60% "unsold" ????

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Its appalling that to buy a 50% share of that flat, you have to be earning a minimum of £18k! :(

If I was the EAs boss I would sack whoever erected all those signs. They should have released these homes in "phases" doh

Can anyone think of any good house price crash photo subjects other than lots of boards?

Empty EA offices?

Repossessed people?

etc

Anouncing that they have sold a house !!

Hey - that is also funny because this is a branch of Austin & Wyatt that also closed down in Chanders Ford

Underneath the sign is an old Fox & Son shadow

Are they trying to tell us something about the state of the housing market ?

Maybe I need to keep in touch with what is going on out there

In spite of the much talked about 'credit crunch' - I hate that phrase, there are dozens of new developments that are going ahead in my local area. In order to show my disaproval of this I intend to plaster the house price crash logo all over these sites. I expect I will be arrested at some stage. I will endeavour to post some photos of my exploits on here. In the meantime I would greatly appreciate some ideas for funny remarks I could print under the logo.

Many thanks

Has anyone got pics from the flats for sale in York....where poplar court is...just along from the shell garage on Hull road...there MUST be 30+ boards within ten yards of each other? Will be classic IMHO

Storm clouds gather over new build flats - really, look:

I go past these regularly. I saw them go up and week by week I've seen the increasingly desperate marketing banners draped across the front: "Now accepting reservations". "Last few remaining". "Ask about our special incentives". "Ideal buy-to-let opportunity".

The latest says "only 4 remaining". I'm not sure if that includes flat 3. It has an auction notice posted outside!

The first photo in this thread needs updating. It looks almost the same as before, but now all the signs say "To Let". There are still for sale signs around the side of the property. Could someone local go and take a look please, I don't pass down that way very often.

Some brave investor wants to rent out these new properties. The rest of the site to the left of the picture looks pretty much unfinished.

Too late to invest? Or will it eventually pay off with many sellers movinginto rented property?

Your wish has been granted - I have updated the first picture for you showing the history of this development - Polyposh :)
