Apologies, but so astonished am I by the pure greed, I believe the following deserves a thread of its very own, so that we can watch it over the coming months, and years.

Flat 2, Howard House - 43 Elmfield Road, Gosforth
If my memory serves me right, then the above flat was for sale with Sanderson Young for most of 2009, listed at a price of £198k. Good location, but the flat was pretty bland with white walls and wooden floors. It was never worth £198k!! :lol:

Anyhow it SOLD in November for £152k
03/11/2009 £152,000 Flat 2, Howard House, 43, Elmfield Road, Gosforth, NE3 4BA

However it's back, again listed with Sanderson Young, it re-appeared end of last week without pictures listed at £310k! :o Today the photos have been added and the price adjusted to £299k. It does not look much different, the walls are still painted white, perhaps a new oak floor, and some chandeliers! The kitchen looks weird, not what you'd expect in a victorian villa, I guess they found it in the B&Q SALE! :lol:

£150k premium over just three months, and for what? :lol:

No doubt some of the young professional couples on 80k each will snap it up straight away. If you don't buy now, you'll miss the boat.

What a farce.

The price is up and down like a yo-yo, 24 hours on and the price has been adjusted upwards back to 310k! Like I said, astonished by the pure greed!

People can ask whatever they want for their properties as far as I'm concerned. If they can find someone daft enough to pay the price, then fair enough.

Compared to most of Tyneside, Gosforth is a pretty decent area

I don't think you're negating my statement much

I think my problem is more that a lot of Gosforth sure as hell doesn't "look" as well to do as it apparently is.

Gosforth most certainly would not meet my definition of posh/affluent. It's main advantages are, it isn't benwell and isn't overrun by students (Jesmond) hence prime real estate for all the *hard working aspirational families* of tyneside.

Some parts of Jesmond and Tynemouth might be gettting closer to my definition but it's all relative, we ain't talking Chelsea & Kensington here.

Only another 100k to go then !
Constant growth the cancerous cure, a swarming race of profiteers ensure cheap cars for the rich, cheap lives for the poor, cheap weeks in the sun, free drinks at the door. Puerile propaganda plugs up the TV, keep folk following the money so they'll never be free.

Bankrupt schools grind out fool after fool then feed them to a system where idiots rule. Polling booths, phone votes, bogus questionnaires, you get a say as if anybody cares. Joe Public doesn't want to play so liquidate his life as he looks the other way.

Should you stand and fight, should you die for what you think is right so your useless contribution will be remembered? If you're asking me I say no, surrender -- Author: Justin Currie - Song video
