I really don't think Gourock will move anytime soon (old trad building with great views), I've seen a couple of flats for sale at ashburn/gate and would say 90k top price. Maybe try your look at taking 10k (Depends if the seller needs a quick sale).
I'm looking at greenock west end
Ps. All EA's in Inverclyde use Rightmove.
Hmm.... I wouldnt be so sure.
If you look at Sold Prices for last 2 years you can see that its only really been in this time period that we have seen the massive growth.
Before that prices were relatively stable ( i.e before 100% mortgages!), now that this has been taken away where are FTBs going to get the money bearing in mind that most folk here work in Tmobile/IBM/RBS and earn well below 20k!
I actually bought in Greenocks West End last July, was a silly time to buy, but couldnt find anything worth renting and it was well within my price range.
Bought for 70k, but reckon it will only be worth 50k after the crash.. but hopefully everything else will come down at the same percentage.
