  1. A not-unreasonable 10% lower offer, if accepted, would see this sold for 75% of initial asking price.

    My misses won't entertain it and a cost because of the proximity to the road. Admittedly you wouldn't get much peace in the garden or be able to open the windows with out constant traffic noise.


    I've just checked it out on 'Our Property' it sold for £325k in Aug 2008, and £198k in Mar 2004.

    Looks like the crash IS on.


  2. Same in Somerset. However sooner or later even EAs are going to cotton on to the fact that the funding isn't available and even though having lots of overpriced tat fills up their window display nicely, it doesn't pay the bills. When this sinks in and they begin to reject dreamers and offer realistic valuations, things will really get going IMO.

    This old favourite has just had £50k taken off it again


    Started at £300k a couple of years ago, then came down to £250k, then went to auction and didn't sell, then off the market for a couple of months, then back on at £300k, now down to £250k again, am I seeing a patern develop here.

    Not interested though, for a start to close to the main A39 to Minehead / Butlins, a v busy road.

    'strong vigilance'
    on inflation seen as rate rise signal
    The European Central Bank will exercise "strong vigilance" over rising inflation, President Jean-Claude Trichet said on Thursday, deploying a phrase that in the past signalled a rate rise was only a month away.

    Wow--Merv is still only " vigilant." If the ECB push it up another notch to "extreme vigilance" we may be weeks away from a .25% hike. :o

    I think "vigilant" has taken on a whole different meaning in recent years.

    Does this mean changing the lightbulb ?

    No new properties added on RM in the last 24 hours in Sandwich. I wonder if a couple of thousand of the 2,400 being laid off are already down at the EAs getting it on the market quick-like? :(

    They'll probably be at home waiting for Jeremy Kyle to come on, an hour more lie in now because of ITV + 1, and waiting for me, the last remaining tax payer in the UK to stump up some more mortgage interest payments.

    West Midlands-based firm Tarmac Building Products Ltd is to cut 550 jobs and close one of its divisions due to "tough market conditions".

    The firm, which is based in Wolverhampton, said it planned to close its precast solutions and flooring arm.

    It said 217 jobs would be lost in Tallington, Lincolnshire and 106 in Henlade, Somerset.

    The remainder are to go in Derby, Lound in Nottinghamshire and Dolyhir in Powys, Wales.

    A company spokesman said it was consulting with staff and unions over the plans to cut 500 full-time staff and 50 agency employees.

    I can't see that being good for Aggregate Demand, Boom Boom !

    But Seriously I know the area of Dolyhir (Near Kington) quite well and these kind of jobs will be hard to replace in such a remote rural area.

  6. Here's something that made me chuckle this morning. The rant about the increase in heating oil was on the radio. People caling it disgraceful opportunistic ramping of prices just because there is a shortage.

    These are the same people who ramp house prices by thousands of pounds, based upon a shortage, but that's different I guess isn't it :huh:

    What I can't believe, when I talk to senior colleagues who are say 10 to 20 years older than me, and on probably £20k to £40k a year more than me, 'nicer' house / car than me etc. that they bought a new tv set, or equivalent on the crdit card.

    I'd pay cash, The misses and I bought our modest place just over 10 years ago for £60k, did it up and have saved ever since, we now own the house outright and have nearly a £100k in the bank, why the f*** are these senior management buying teles on their credit cards ?

  7. I don't think it matters. They will innovate away from petrol as required.

    From the company that I work for


    SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, through its subsidiary SITA UK, is to commission the first of its plants by the end of 2011 in the greater London area. SITA UK aims to construct at the rate of two to three plastic to diesel conversion plants per year depending on planning.

    Each plant is designed to convert approximately 6,000 tonnes of mixed waste plastic annually, specifically targeting mixed waste plastic diverted from landfill, and to produce in excess of four million litres of end of life plastic into specification diesel fuel.

  8. Garage: 15’10 x 8’0

    Up and over electric door to the front, door to the rear.

    Am I going to get my focus in there and be able to open the door to get out, ohhhh a foot to spare assuming I have it squashed right up to the wall !


    Stop it now I'm pi$$ing myself, quarter of a million quid hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Started at £325k in June now auction guide £240k, I will be interested to know what it goes for, although it's on the A39 which can get very busy with all the grokells going to Minehead.

    The other side of Somerset


    Started off at £335 in June now down to £250k, having had a 'drive past' yesterday, I would say it's a probate, and because of the listing could easily turn into a money pit, and the road it's on is quite busy, not for me thanks.
