  1. you all assume that prices will continue to drop. they will not.. they will level off and alot of people will be kicking themselves for not taking a chance and buying a home now. in co.armagh things are starting to level off already and many have reduced their asking prices.. fair play they still have a small bit to go but just offer less than the asking price. think of how much rent you are paying.. average 500 quid a month.. that could be coming off your mortgage and you would have a home you could take pride in instead of making someone else rich by paying rent..... there is nothing like ha
  2. No harm in a few people starting to buy - if these houses are selling below asking prices, they are simply driving expectations down for the rest of us. As these figures start to feed into the indexes, we will see the crash accelerate, further feeding the reduced expectations. see what i mean ... thinking of only yourself..... yes its great to see wise people starting to buy and get good value deals below asking prices. buying a house is not about the rest of you or anyone else it's about what makes an individual happy and what they can afford. Life is much too short to sit and wait on a d
  3. Prices 'slashed on 90% of Northern Ireland homes' Estate agents claim now is time to buy Thursday, 7 August 2008 Northern Ireland estate agents today claimed that prices have been slashed on up to 90% of their stock. And the estate agents said the move is working, and bringing buyers back to the beleaguered local property market. Financial institutions are now the main obstacle for first-time buyers, it was claimed. And despite a tough year for the housing market, both BTWCairns and Templeton Robinson have had notable sales during July. Simon Brien, director at BTWCairns, said: “W
  4. i am in a very lucky position where i have bought a few houses outright with no mortgage.. i have one mortgage on a property which i took out for 10 years its nearly paid off now so as i said the rich get richer.. as for you not believing me .. that is not a concern for me... i am simply advising from my experience.... and i have made my money on property without knowing the first thing about property markets etc.. and without any fancy graphs.. i simply took chances and won.. what i say makes so so much sense.. as i always stress .. as long as its within your budget and you can afford it then
  5. lot more sale agreed and sold signs up around me... prices were dropped by 30 - 40,000 and they are selling.. things are definetley moving.. apparently a lot more viewings taking place in my area and offers going in...
  6. lets look at things with a very sensible approach... everything is worth something..... if you see a property on the market and you really like it and really would like to buy it but its priced way way out of your budget or way over valued then don't sit back... there are a lot of desperate sellers out there and you really don't know each individuals circumstances and how desperate they are to sell their homes... go and make an offer within your budget... everyone is very good at saying that houses are over priced and saying that it would need to come down to such and such to be worth the mon
  7. i am not into guessing games i would rather wait and see.. i have bought 2 properties lately and have bagged 2 bargains.. its all about wanting it and going and getting it... lot more sale agreed and sold signs up around me... prices were dropped by 30 - 40,000 and they are selling.. things are definetley moving.. apparently a lot more viewings taking place in my area and offers going in...
  8. has anyone noticed that when someone posts something suggesting the market is picking up or something is posted which is good about the property market it gets totally ignored...
  9. labrador is not an estate agent, troll or anything out of the ordinary just someone who lives life to the full and does not get on like a daft idiot about the housing market. just someone who bought houses in 1990's and sold them last year an made a clean fortune so now has loads of cash lying around and is now buying houses again and going to make even more money.. believe it or not i have my head well screwed on.. (expect there will be childish comments on that one) so many silly comments and alot of huffing going on because someone posted a bit of truth on this forum.. don't listen folk
  10. prices will drop i agree there but if you think they will drop to less than 50% you are so so wrong.. at least i am continuing to live my life and do things that will benefit me in the long run.. if you truly believe a property is worth a certain price and you really want it then you are mad if you don't do something about it.. paying rent is throwing money away into the hands of someone who is having a great time and making money while you lose lose lose.. its about time people on this forum started to write some sense and stopped scaring people off from getting on with their life.. there is
  11. wise up grow up and stop grumbling the whole lot of you.. if you want something go and get it.. just had another offer accepted on property.. i offered 100000 less than asking price, THEY TOOK A WHILE TO THINK ABOUT IT, BUT THEY ACCEPTED MY OFFER.. 50% LESS THAN WHAT IT WAS ON FOR.. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT PRICES WILL DROP BY 50%... YOU GUYS WILL HAVE EGG ON YOUR FACES OFFER WHAT YOU TRULY BELIEVE THE HOUSE TO BE WORTH... IT WORKED FOR ME AND I WILL BE DOING IT AGAIN.. YOU GUYS ARE TOO CONCERNED WITH SILLY GRAPHS THAT NO ONE LOOKS AT ANY WAY.. IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED GO AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT
  12. Rics: Northern Ireland property to thrive in 2008 Property transactions in Northern Ireland are set to increase during 2008, according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics). Average prices in the region fell by 0.2 per cent during the last three months of 2007, according to Nationwide, which led the lender to predict a four per cent fall in prices over the coming year. However, Rics now predicts the market will remain buoyant - with average prices expected to return to an upward trend during the next 12 months. Northern Ireland saw the highest annual house price growth
  13. no matter what life must go on and there are houses out there at good money ... and i still believe that if you want unto the property market then go and make an offer.. even if its ridiculously low.. you never know your offer might be accepted... if you do not try you will never know... maybe by doing so things might start moving again and all this doom and gloom will end.. i have spotted a property in co.armagh its over my budget but i am going to offer what the house sold for in 2005 and take a chance... its been on the market for a while.... Anyone know of other property in co.armagh wit
