Couldn't really get anything in Basingstoke for less than 90k over the last 18 months.

Studio flat in Popley (admitedly one of the rougher areas) now 70k.

Remember them being 50k three-and-a-half years ago.

50% of total gains over the last 3 years washed away already ??? :D

Crown Heights 4th floor 2 bed apartment:

http://fish4.co.uk/homes/homesforsale/view...stlocations.jsp

Originally on sale for 230k (new), dropped to 220k so that the last few would sell a good few months ago...

Now 180k. Lowest price I've seen one of these sell for. Snap it up...

If you don't fancy it, there are *plenty* for rent through Redwoods...

A blind person? No-one who had actually seen the flats with their own eyes would contemplate ever going near them again, never mind buying the f*cking things!

I can't actualy see much improvement myself, give it another couple of years and even my offer will look toppy.

There they go... :lol:

I count 13 Crown Heights boxes for sale with discounts of up to 50k from their original asking price.

I count 4 Victory Hill boxes for sale, some before completion...

These figures are from the rightmove website alone. Can anyone confirm if they've seen any others ??? There must be plenty for sale through Redwoods and the like... And plenty for rent as well...

Oh $H1T.... :lol:

Falling faster than I thought. Last time I polled right move, it was for
a limited price range. Here's the full set of results:

Crown Heights - 13 for sale, 21 for rent (finished building a few months ago)
Victory Hill - 23 for sale, 15 for rent (finishing...)
Fairfields - 1 for sale, 3 for rent (finished)
Norn Hill - 1 for sale, 4 for rent (not a new build)
Miscellaneous - 7 for sale, 5 for rent (new / old builds) :o :o :o

Stopped off at Braisingsteak recently, on my way home to Dorset, to check out the new Festival shopping centre.
Saw those flats you are all on about, what crap!
And what are they going to put underneath, where that fountain is?
Had a nose around the agents, as you do, they must be buying their Tippex by the gallon.

Are these the so-called penthouses? They occupy the top-slots so they must be the 2000sq ft ones, right? Aren't these suppose to be 500k ??? Oh dear...

Thanks for the link though... will be really interesting to see how low these go. If they head towards 225k they'll make all the other apartments look worthless...
