  1. Falling fast - see this one. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-445...pa_n=5&tr_t=buy The flat next door but one to this, abeit with a bigger balcony but otherwise identical sold for 249,950 last May. This one is now on at 199,000.!!!!!! Also, I think the people who bought off plan at 360° maybe upset when they see how near the eastern flats are to the next office block! Hope they didn't pay 265k+.
  2. Rent of flat below now dropped to 850GBP - and its still up for rent - these usually rent out quickly so its likely to have to drop again, and then after haggling will probably be more like 750GBP/month, if that. What a lemon. "The £199k Deanery Road flat is no longer for sale and is up for rent - at GBP900. I'd be amazed if they get this - its ground floor - our flat in Deanary was miles better and we paid 800GBP/month. Interest only mortgage on 199k would be £893 (at 5.4%) Repayment mortgage on 199k would be £1209 (at 5.4%) Loosing money.....with no capital gain (or even sale) in sight.

  4. The £205k property above is now on for £199k unsold Our old flat, down from 232k, to 229k, now off market, landlord is back trying to let out, has had to lower the rent, having lost us as tenants and has given up trying to sell. I'm also seeing bigger drops near Bath. 2 places in villages near M4 J18, one dropped from 299k to 275k (only been on market couple of months), and another which has been for sale for 6 months+ has dropped from 215k to 179k!!! (thats quite alot - that sort of drop would have been unthinkable to some only last year). For the first time I feel comfortable that the m
  5. Whats an airline engineer? Either : aircraft/airline technician - fixes & services planes, (non professional, but highly skilled) or : aerospace engineer - designs planes (clearly professional), member of professional body Don't confuse engineers with technicians/mechanics. You wouldn't confuse a nurse and a doctor would you?
  6. How about this one in Montague Street... 2 bed - 174,950k http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-527...pa_n=7&tr_t=buy
  7. There is now a Deanery Road 2 bed flat for sale at 205k This is a new record low, although it is ground floor. LINK http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-673...pa_n=5&tr_t=buy
  8. More slippage here. The lowest priced flat I started this thread with (at 227k) is still unsold. There is now another identical one joining it on the market at 219k. These prices don't seem very stable to me. Can't really describe this as a plateau as some of these were up for 250+k only 12 months ago?
  9. ??? Why do people think Hutton was a white wash? The BBC f**ked up big time, sexed up their reporting, stuck by it, got proved wrong then made loads of excuses. I hope the BBC has learnt it lesson not to make stuff up and sensationalise - I can't believe some like dyke and gilligan are now trying to say "well there aren't any WMD" so our story was alright - as if that makes their unprofessionalism alright. Utter cr*p. A large proportion of the media are story seeking scum. There are of course exceptions such as Susan Watts who I found very revealing during Hutton. They must HATE tw*ts li
  10. Anyone seen "Bristol" magazine this month. In amongst the overpriced property, there's an article by Hamptons, saying, "we were first to predict house price slowdown in July" (yeah right, tw*ts), and talk up how vendors shouldn't worry as they may get less but will pay less for their next property, lower your expectations etc. (must maintain turnover at all costs....)
  11. Yes LL, nicely put. I'm renting, and I'm certainly going to wait until at least Spring to see where prices are going. 10% off is already here in my manor, so whats the rush to buy? I'm looking at properties around 250k, and 10% reductions are being seen which take a property to 225k. That is 3-4 years rent in as many months. The opportunities / potential for a further 10%+ drop make the prospect of renting a bit longer very easy to bear - you'd be almost crazy to rush in after only small drops. Small increases in rent (which I'm pretty sure WON'T happen here anyway) will be totally irrele
  12. No cherie bought two at the panoramic - on Park Row. In some respects the location is better, but personnally I don't like the development. I think she stumped up 270k approx. for each. These flats vary from 214k -275k ish for 2 bed stuff, with many now at 249k ish. There are several different sizes of flat however so its hard to track from the scant details which are comparible when advertised.
  13. Prices in the centre seem to be slipping gently. St Georges Place 2 bed flats in BS1 peaked with asking prices of 265k earlier in the year, but have steadily slipped back to asking prices of 249k, 245k, 234k and just this week a new low of 227k (these are all the larger Deanery Road, not St Davids Mews units, which are 40-50k cheaper again). All these prices are for different but basically identical flats, as several are typically up for sale at any given time (there are quite a lot of them). I suspect that the top actual selling price was probably around 249k earlier on (i.e. never achieved
  14. I think your point is totally right. It is only EAs, lenders and Kirstys that promote the fact that rising prices are good. They are not. It is only the stupid UK public that think its a good thing, as they think it means "they" are rich. But of course they aren't. Brits seem to enjoy paying too much for things, and then simultaneously bragging about it AND resenting others who have nice things. Brits really are bonkers when it comes to money and success.
