(20% reduction) Click on Concept 4876 (bottom of page) and look at the actual interior & exterior pictures. It makes the average new home in the UK look like a complete and utter hovel. Unbelievable!
  3. I just called them, and it is indeed an "Autumn Sale" due to the market slowdown on properties that are "lingering". It is a national initiative throughout the group. What made me laugh was that he insisted that the prices are not falling. I said, so you "admit the market it slowing and therefore you are responding by reducing prices and yet you maintain that prices are not falling?" He started side stepping in only the way that ea state agents do. So i cant be bothered to give you his bulls*** excuses

  9. The US based Housing Market Index (HMI) is based on a monthly survey of NAHB members designed to take the pulse of the housing industry, especially the single-family industry. The survey asks respondents to rate general economic and housing market conditions. The survey is used by the Federal Reserve Board as one key measure of the health of the economy. The HMI is a weighted average of separate diffusion indices, calculated for three key single family series in the survey: Present Sales of New Homes, Sale of New Homes Expected in the Next 6 Months and Traffic of Prospective Buyers in New Hom

  11. Admittedly maths is not my best strength, however I have noticed some inconstancies in the land reg. property prices. I wondered if someone can shed some light on it..... Looking at the region "WEALDEN" during last quarter of 2005 and the 1st quarter of 2006, I cant understand why they are showing that the overall average price has risen from £232141 to £239712 in this period, when they are showing that the average price of a detached house has gone down, the average price of a semi detached house has gone down and finally the average price of a flat/maisonette has gone down.

  12. "It's only when the tide goes out that you learn who's been swimming naked." In my opinion, there are many naked swimmers, especially in the real estate market.....
