  1. The problem with LCC is that there are so many additional costs on top of the fare. Me and Mrs T decided to go to Scotland next week. We planned to fly from Belfast to Glasgow, then hire a car. When I had included car hire, airport parking and all the taxes on the fare it was cheaper to get the ferry and take my own car, and a lot less hassle as well. No queues to book in or at security and no faffing around at the car hire place. We can take as much luggage as we like (a big thing with her, why do women want to bring ten pairs of shoes everywhere?) The door to door journey time will also be aroud the same, so there is no good reason to fly. Thats why the LCC must keep their fares mush lower than at present, or they are not competing.
  2. I wondered about that, a lot of estate agents are very poor at puting photos on, but there is usually one of the outside, perhaps they are trying to hide something. Maybe the houses are not built yet, but there are a lot of empty houses in this development. These two both look empty http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC185257 http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC198170 This one is offering part exchange http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC365376 It hasnt sold despite being 55k cheaper than this one http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0045 It is a small development, quite nice really, but I reckon if you bought in Westfort, your going to be stuck there for a long time
  3. Sorry, missed one http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0184 26th May 2008 * Price changed: from '£237,500' to '£160,000' * Status changed: from 'For Sale' to 'Sale Agreed' Down 77.5k Sale agreed, but not sold yet, lets wait and see
  4. Just come across the Westfort development in Cookstown, these are the biggest reductions ive seen anywhere, all in the same development http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0193 26th May 2008 * Price changed: from '£290,000' to '£215,000' Down 75k http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0189 26th May 2008 * Price changed: from '£280,000' to '£210,000' Down 70k http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0183 26th May 2008 * Price changed: from '£265,000' to '£183,000' Down 82k http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...mp;p=STBSTB0186 26th May 2008 * Price changed: from '£265,000' to '£183,000' Down 82k Looks like the developer really wants to shift them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I guess they havent put the windows in because the locals will trash them as soon as they go in. Its Craigavon after all.
  6. Youda thought the owner would have put a new one in though. I took a drive around this area a few weks ago, its like a wilderness, masses of empty new builds, not even trying to sell them, work stopped half way through on some. Look at this, just round the corner, they have been sitting like this for ages, no work going on http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC327830
  7. Have a look at this http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC292830 obviously occupied, Offers Around £ 185,000 but with a different EA http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...amp;p=PNC350895 now empty, Offers in the region of £ 137,500, and in the description "Provision for fireplace." It looks like someone has legged it with the fireplace
  8. There are huge numbers of similar size new houses in this area with asking price around 130k, you might even get them for less, so even 134k is too much. I see both are empty and recently refurbished, not sure of the significance of this though.
  9. Have a look at these, identical as far as I can see, 11 PINES PARK, LURGAN, CO ARMAGH, BT66 7BP Offers Around £ 210,000 7 Pines Park, Lurgan, Craigavon, Co Armagh, BT66 7RU Asking Price £ 134,000 21st May 2008 * Price changed: from '£149,950' to '£134,000' 19th May 2008 * Status changed: from 'For Sale' to 'Sale Agreed' 28th Apr 2008 * Initial entry found. It is odd that the price of 7 dropped by 16k two days after sale agreed!
  10. I havent seen this before in NI, it shows a bit of panic I think, if the developer goes bust I guess the bank would recall the 25%, it could get messy.
  11. Sawyers EA in Banbridge have reduced prices in the Summerhill development by 25%, but you are expected to pay the remaining 25% on resale or after 10 years, does anyone know what a banks attitude to this would be when applying for a mortgage?
