I still think that if you lower the asking price below 250K you're more likely to get a sale.


There is no ladder.


No need to sell up, the next phase of the economics cycle is going to be very positive for anyone that owns property.

All I'm sayings is, don't listen to the property bears people, they are wrong.

Bit late to the party, but I think the major psychological challenge here is to understand who the developer is aiming this at.

Starter home? 260k seems a bit steep for a pre-family young couple needing a two bedroom flat (even if it is in one of the nicer more expensive parts of Manchester.
Family home? Only two bedroom.. no use for anyone planning more than one child or having granny to stay.
Retirement Home? Perhaps the ground floor would make an ok retirement flat, but I didn't see any mobility assistance to help people get to the upper flats.
Holiday home? Not likely some how.

Looks like one of those places which looks nice but is completely impractical to 90% of home buyers. I guess I will be proved wrong when it sells for 10% over asking price courtesy of some canny investors..

Edit to add: I would have thought most buyers looking in the area would go for something more like this.. Linky. Not much bigger, but ticks the three bedrooms and a garden boxes plus the price looks negotiable.

And I tell you we have learned from past mistakes.
Just as you cannot spend your way out of recession, you cannot, in a global economy, simply spend your way through recovery either.

So, housing affordability is better than it has ever been, but no-one can take advantage of this because they can't afford the houses. I see.
