If the improvements are critical to you, don't hand over any money until they are complete and keep looking for alternatives.
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.

We agreed - in writing - that the landlord would have the shower and some other items fixed before we moved in. The landlord didn't uphold his end of the bargain. It was two months before we got it fixed - we ended up managing the project to get it fixed ourselves. Perhaps I should have demanded a rent reduction but I'm too much of a softy.
Perhaps you can specify a penalty in your agreement? If the things that need fixing aren't fixed, the landlord will pay £X for every day until the things are fixed. That might put the landlord off having you as tenants, I guess. But in the event that he fails to fix things, there really can't be any argument about compensation.
