I think there are a few watching the CLS area so I thought it may be good to have a topic seperate from the mega Newcastle thread.

I've got a couple of Rightmove searches for the area using PropertyBee to track changes.

Can kick this off with a laugh at JW Wood with this:

date event
Friday, 25 July 2008 2:08:15 AM

* Price changed: from 'Offers in Region of 125,000' to 'Offers in Region of 139,950'

Wednesday, 30 April 2008 4:56:42 AM

* Price changed: from 'Offers in Region of 119,950' to 'Offers in Region of 125,000'


I intend to email him the bad news - "prices are falling" :lol:

Not seen Nestoria before. Just had a look there but not sure how you see price trends?

ok, found it now - it looks a bit dodgy to me.

They are dropping alright. Using PropertyBee makes it transparent. A couple of good ones below from Rickleton:

Not much chance of that short of a nuclear holocaust.

I bought 3 bed semi for 10k in '76. I was second owner - first one paid 200 quid back in '36.
It still doubled in price in 5 years when I sold it.

As this site has made clear though they've never been higher versus income so a long way to go yet

I presume you don't still have the Chilton house, so must have sold for a profit?

I think I sold it for about 23K many years ago.
I have a feeling we will see sub 20K properties in these locations again.
