Can't remember the last time any new properties appeared in my preferred search. There were quite a few being added around 2-3 months back but it all seems to have ground to a halt. All I'm seeing now is the same old crap put on repeatedly and often at more or less the same price.

Even if I wanted to buy right now there isn't anything I would. (well, within 300k of my max budget - and then there's only one)

yes you're right, apart from the usual suspects changing agents in pendeen, st just, trewellard etc its pretentious lifestyle flats in st ives, and the usual churn in carbis bay, very quiet. Properties that match our criteria are very rare anyway. Whether our expectations will ultimately be compromised I dont know, as our budget is modest, there is something we are considering but only with a hefty reduction, but quite happy to play a long game patience will be rewarded for sure.

What is it about Carbis Bay?! It must have more houses for sale per sq Km than anywhere in the UK!
Neighbouring Lelant is a pretty close second.

I guess together with Lelant Its a surpisingly big sprawl and attracts an older demographic....and life expectancy being what it is in such a damp climate.......produces a natural err turnover of supply.:rolleyes:
I am surprised at the speedy turnover of country property as well, take decent quiet areas like Newmill, Bodrifty, Mulfra, Morvah etc its incredible the number of people that dont stick around for long perhaps not being able to hack the weather and general lack of diversity......

Talk of the devil ....up pops another classic Lelant bungalow .

Is it me or does that looked grossly overpriced? I would have thought it really hard to find a buyer at 300,000 let alone just under half a million?????

Yep, just add to the list of places that will still be for sale in 6 months time. Owners obviously think it is worth an extra 200k because it has a glimpse of what is essentially mud 50% of the time.

Also another fine example of hopelessly dated decor that is prevalent in any decent sized non-period house on the market.
Almost as bad as all those hideous conservatories that add an extra 50k onto the price tag but I'd demolish the second I moved in!

Notice the term " Hayle Borders " hasnt yet caught on in estate agent lexicon.....mmm cant think why not!

Yes there should be a separate thread for hideous conservatories......the penwith classic seems to be the perspex shed/porch combination stuck onto a sweet vernacular granite farmhouse.....classy. Prime example popped up yesterday (you get far more for your money in that hinterland north of A 394 than West of st ives)

Bit more like it. Just knocked 50k off. I'd seriously consider this if I didn't want to be within walking distance of Penzance

That's a handsome house (although quite close to a caravan site - the garden of the one above with the dodgy conservatory actually borders a caravan site, not ideal ). Why walking distance PZ? Dont want a car? or just like the connected feel? Bone valley maybe????

100k off - at least another 100k to go IMO
http://www.rightmove...y-24795859.html

Was originally on at 595k. What is f'king wrong with these people? Pig ugly, dated house that isn't even on a proper street.

Don't these people look at what else is on the market for the same price? I assume they do as they have to move somewhere.

Rightmove alert email today entitled 'New property for you to buy in TR18'.
3 properties - all have been on there for around 9 months+ and all that same price. Deluded TW@Ts.

My favorite is this dump at approaching half a million. http://www.rightmove...y-27651511.html Views out over Coronation Street

~20% off http://www.rightmove...y-23933416.html

I remember this one at 360k when it first came on. Looks OK, but something I don't like about it
