  1. Funny! Maybe they have not told the residents yet.
  2. As per title http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2012/oct/30/david-cameron-adviser-lobbyist-wonga
  3. Local agency in Southport did this a few years ago, flat fee of around 1K they got soo much business they could not handle it all, opened three new shops (now closed) could not keep up with demand and ended up annoying both buyers and sellers, back to their old model now with much less stock.
  4. Gina Rinehart calls for Australian wage cut http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19487985
  5. EA in Birkdale just closed office and moved to Southport town centre http://www.farrellheyworth.co.uk/about_us/branches/southport.aspx Back in 2008 they had two offices, Southport and Birkdale, they closed the Southport office to concentrate on the area bringing in the most business, looks like they have changed their plans.
  6. Heres one you can all comment on in Ainsdale: Plot with planning permission 250K http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-35206240.html?premiumA=true Same plot with house built 625K http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-35206063.html?premiumA=true 4000 Square feet build at 100 per sq foot plus land at 250K
  7. Joker of the day http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32689559.html Not sold in 16 months on the market increase the price by 85K
  8. Prices still falling in Formby http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-30203794.html Wed Jul 25 14:34:20 2012 Price changed: from '£1,350,000' to '£895,000' I get the feeling a lot people now realise that the property game is over for the current generation. Its a race to the bottom now. IMO this needs to fall another 400K and someone will pick it up at just under 500K. Lets wait and see :-)
  9. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-29579302.html Down from 700K to 600K in just over a year. Should be priced ok in 2 - 3 years at this rate. I am now betting that these will be 300k houses in a few years, the road has major isses and the smart people have already left. Pumped drainage (service fee), very large new development right behind these houses planned over next few years. 3-4 houses in this row up for sale.
  10. Noticed this one back to the market, last marketed 2 years ago at 300K, now on for 250K, also looks like its had some money spent on it since the last listing. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-23637495.html
  11. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-34749706.html?premiumA=true I thought this one would have been snapped up by now, using property bee it shows that there were some offers of upto 605K, but it appears they are not listed, maybe withdrawn/fallen through. Given that houses on Selworthy have been advertised at anything upto £2m over the past few years someone must feel that there is a profit to be made here at 550K. Maybe its the death of property development in Birkdale as people realise that even Selworthy houses are not worth 500K in the current market.
  12. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-23584152.html Another one trying their luck, 3 bedrooms off westbourne road at almost 600K, not in their lifetime! You could get a large 6-8 bed place on Westbourne for this kind of money with a garden, you would still feel that you were over paying. If i had to guess I would say that this house will be on the market for several years and will sell for less than 400K, now watch someone prove me wrong :-)
  13. Anecdotal, talking to a local Lamborghini dealer recently and he stated that he is seeing more North West property developers trying to offload their cars for cash to prop up their businesses than he's had hot dinners in recent months.
  14. Not sure if it has sold or not, i know it was put on the market after a extensive overhaul and extension, not worth anywhere near the asking price in my view. Probably another of the lambo driving propery developers in the area, although talking to a lambo dealer over the weekend he said that he has seen more north west property developers looking to offload their cars for cash to stay afloat than hes had hot dinners recently. Not a lot else moving, some properties that sold in april/may/june are now comming back on the market as the deals fall through, not sure of the reasons but i assume its funding related. I did hear of one couple looking to market their house had valuations between 300 and 320k from most agents with two saying a quick sale would be achievable at 280k, another more down to earth agent suggested to them that 250k was a more realistic asking price, will let you know if they put it on the market. I still dont see anything over 350K selling in the town or surrounding areas and the land registry appears to back me up. Good luck wherever you end up living, I hope you find the right house at the right price for you. looks like the house i posted about above on selworthy road is now going for 605k, which brings the 1m+ houses on the same road back down to earth, but i am sure all i will hear from the agents is how someone got an absolute steal and has doubled their money over night. time will tell.
  15. This has been happening for a long time. Developers in Sefton/Southport have been building new parks/swings/play areas in return for having planning permissoin granted for developments.
