  1. Hi can only tell you that we are needing to relocate to Hampshire due to business , even the locals will tell us to watch out as all the E A s are Ba.....s there words not ours, our experince to date is that they want more for a property there and around the whole area for more than here in Surrey , we have dropped our price so much that now all we can afford is a wreck , but will they drop the price, will they heck , so along with thousands of others we are staying put , hence the market not moving at all despite so many wanting to!
  2. PS The work carried out over the years is quite substantial and makes for a lovely place we are not losing (yet) but then we are`nt making a huge gain either, especially as what we can afford to move to will entail complete rewire , damp proofing , kitchen, bathroom, c/h system( doesn`t have one ) so we reckon about £90,000 on top of what ever we have to pay for it , thats if they will drop of course , as it stands , its almost the same price as we are asking for here !
  3. Oh how funny you are , you really are quite a wheeze!! Now why not be a good little goy and clear off and let grown ups discuss the merits of the great world of property in the UK of 2008.
  4. I think you are somewhat missing the point here,we are moving for relocation reasons , if we were hoping to cash in as you say on high prices a year ago we would have been laughing, no we wouldn`t , at that time we were not even thinking of moving so what ever prices were doing was niether here nor there , like many others we are hoping to move for reasons of work , NOT hoping to make a big killing on our property , try and imagine an ordinary average year, people move house, not for making big gains, lovely if it happens but then usually you have to pay it all towards the next place anyway, the really funny thing is we are looking at same as we are selling , this is the bit we can`t seem to get over to anyone , what we are expecting to sell for is actually a lot less than what we are expected to PAY for , for the same type of property but with so much work that the place will be uninhabitable while the works need doing , in comparison we are selling a quite pleasant house in lovely area which is not in need of a complete renovation by any means , plus so near to London , trains, excellent schools, shops etc etc, we are having to look at wrecks simply because thats all we can afford as the PRICES appear to be higher in Hampshire than the PRICES in Surrey , despite all the talk of Elmbridge being one of the most expensive ares to buy, it seems to be not the case , we really don`t care what we sell for as we just want to get on with our lives, however it still appears that there are a lot of `sellers` who don`t seem to bothered whether they sell or not , it may well end up like Spain at this rate where property can be on the market for up to 5 years, they don`t drop the price, no if they don`t sell they put the price up !!Now that would be a worry !!
  5. Sorry about CAPS to one reader comments, no not angry , just fed up with the silly expectations of a lot of the new `breed` of buyers out there these days. Yes one would have thought that the lookers would actually read the details but am always amazed that they actually don`t! They don`t even seem to be aware of the plans to extend , yes they are on the details too! its not a renovation job, its cosmetic, as we are moving we of course are not going to extend which would then entail doing said kitchen and bathroom , if we had done it wouldn`t be on the market for the price it is , but try explaining that to some people, it just doesn`t seem to register. Every one we talk to has the same kind of story, even Agents say how moronic some so called `buyers` are these days , the something for nothing mentality is very much alive and well in all aspects of UK life sadly.Finally, the Agent was the one who priced the house not us , we want to move so we have dropped quite a bit , after all whats the point of overpricing as that gets you nowhere, we think all the mass hysteria in the media has made people thinkl that all houses are now up for really silly offers and we can tell you that isn`t the case at all , at least not where we are looking in Hampshire , lucky to even be entertained at any offer unless its going to be repossesed. For the replies from some its quite sad really, those who are `gloating` their words not ours , are the ones who were quite happy to cut and run with their profits, we however don`t look on what its worth that much because its our home, we `invest` in other ares for gains , as we all know its all relevent , if house prices are going down then thats life, what we are saying is that , and we are not at all alone in this, is that when one goes looking for a property one actually finds that no one really is willing to drop and those same houses are still on the market , we are happy to keep dropping but there seems no point if others are not going to do the same to ensure a sale, we could drop forever but that would only mean we could not afford to move at all unless other vendors are willing to drop too, does that make it all a little clearer for some of you , instead of silly purile comments how about constructive ones, we were hoping not for complete agreement but for others experiences, as most people seem to think, " so what if prices fall , it means what we want to move to will fall also" well it would seem that simply isn`t the case as am sure many out there can agree, thats why there is such a `stalemate` in the market , people can`t move because some won`t drop at all , leave alone drop 10% . Do hope all those who were more concerned about the wrong `caps`, spelling , syntax etc etc than the actuall content are now a little more happier , we read constructive letters, seems there are quite a few who have no interest in debate but just around to make what they seem to think are `clever` snide remarks , get a life guys and leave the debates to those who are interested in the topic , Kind Regards Si
