I think there are a few watching the CLS area so I thought it may be good to have a topic seperate from the mega Newcastle thread.

I've got a couple of Rightmove searches for the area using PropertyBee to track changes.

Can kick this off with a laugh at JW Wood with this:

* Price changed: from 'Offers in Region of £125,000' to 'Offers in Region of £139,950'

* Price changed: from 'Offers in Region of £119,950' to 'Offers in Region of £125,000'[/quote]

I intend to email him the bad news - "prices are falling" :lol:

ok, found it now - it looks a bit dodgy to me.
See below - overall prices up but on split info all are down :blink:

They are dropping alright. Using PropertyBee makes it transparent. A couple of good ones below from Rickleton:

Not much chance of that short of a nuclear holocaust.

I bought 3 bed semi for 10k in '76. I was second owner - first one paid 200 quid back in '36.
It still doubled in price in 5 years when I sold it.

As this site has made clear though they've never been higher versus income so a long way to go yet

I presume you don't still have the Chilton house, so must have sold for a profit?

I think I sold it for about 23K many years ago.
I have a feeling we will see sub 20K properties in these locations again.

Your prediction may be proved right. These new builds failed to sell at auction for 35k.

Seven listed, none sold. Looks like builder gone bust.

a "five to twoer" is the kind of girl you cop off with at five to two in the morning in the nightclub, when it closes at two........ ie not a total beauty, and as a mate of mine often says, I have never been to bed with an ugly woman but I have woken up with a few :lol: :lol: :lol:
