  11. ah, this looks a good resource! I've added it to the blogroll on my blog, where I post results of interest - mostly London/South East England - but there are others ....
  12. Sorry, I don't know have any insider information and whether this was a discount, but the HousePrices.co.uk lists 2 prices for the same date....the lower price being approx 20% less than the higher. That looks like a discount. But it's just a guess.
  13. sold in August 2006 for £210,000 with 20% discount at £178,500, this 2-bed flat was sold for £135,000 at the Barnard Marcus auction on 17th April, 2008. The flat is on the Bryant Homes development called Delta Riverside, see blog, where flats are still available for £285,000 . . .
