  1. Am I just a big failure or are there that many people who can afford this kind of shoebox?
  2. This could be the development she wants to buy in http://www.weston-homes.com/bridgeswharf/availability.aspx Top price is £395k for 1 bed 1 bath!!! This is why I'll be leaving London soon. Who do they think can afford that kind of price now?
  3. I guess I might be waiting a while to buy a 2 bed flat in Chiswick http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...64%26index%3D50 ..although I guess a fully working cactus garden adds at least 200k to the value And with 3x salary I still couldn't afford this studio, with 'private terrace' http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...cending%3Dfalse
  4. LOL - the flat you have up there to rent is the same flat as I linked to... but to buy. A bad sign for whoever *developed* this flat? It's over-priced to rent or to buy
  5. I'm sure it's nice in the summer
  6. I can see why somebody would pay a cheap rent for a studio - but to pay £180k to buy! On over-inflation, I was watching "homes under the hammer" today, and some property developer *re-developed* a flat bought for about £190k (he put laminate down and painted the walls). Both EA's valued it at £225k. However, the developer believed them wrong and that really the flat was worth £275k. He's renting them out instead. jeez!
  7. I didn't say that the studio in teddington was on £100k (its on at £180k!). I find it incredulous that anybody would even pay £100k for a studio, let alone the price this was on at.
  8. I suppose at least you can microwave your dinner without leaving the comfort of your armchair
  9. Hi! I'm new to housepricecrash - my first post My current situation is that I *missed* the opportunity to buy when I was a student in Glasgow in 2000 and have spent the last 8 years moving to London, having fun, going on holiday lots, paying of debts and saving £10k towards a deposit. I've resisted 125% mortgages, 100% mortgages, shared ownership (all the while seeing friends buy flats in scummy aread for £250k!), just when I got excited that my partner and I might be able to buy one of these scummy flats too - I learn that I need to wait two years!! Oh well, I'm going to enjoy my two years renting on one of the best streets in Chiswick for less than £1k a month at least! Anyway, introductions aside, does anybody else gawp at the volume of *studio* flats on the market in London? Who on earth buys a studio at these prices!!?? This property is a *luxury* studio flat: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-190...=2&tr_t=buy What's luxurious about 250 sq ft in Teddington? The wood flooring? The miniscule bathroom? the fact that it has (gasp) a hallway? Why would anyone pay more that £100k for a rsingle room? And why are there so many of them!?!!?!?!? It maddens me!
