  1. Hello, I am probably being a bit dim, but could someone explain why everyone is saying prices are falling 10% and yet this BBC site is quoting an annual rise in the UK of +1.37%. Its a bit confusing. Also if we think the BBC site is innacurate for any reason, can anyone recommend another site that gives better statistics by % per area. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...html/houses.stm Thanks for your help! Steve
  2. Hello, I'm thinking of Woking, Surrey for a possible future buy. I've checked on the web and it does look as if house prices have not really fallen in this area. Do any of you have any idea why or do you predict future falls in Woking? Many thanks for your help! Steve
  3. Hi, Sorry if I'm misunderstanding all this, but according to this link at the BBC, in some areas prices are still going up. Or am I misundersatnding. Doesn't that imply that its not as 'bad' as people are generally saying on this forum? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...ces/html/bb.stm Confused
  4. Cheers mate, really helpful post! I am not going to rush, I think. I'm so glad I've found this site- this kind of stuff is so helpful!
  5. You're probably right. So when's the market gonna reach its bottom, that's what I wanna know. Ah, that's another thread- off I go and take a look at that!
  6. Well yes. But it means you have to wait a while to get the benefit of that. I don't want to buy my first home now and then find the price has dropped 30-50% in a few years (that's the bad bit)
  7. Seriously? You think they'll fall that much? Does anyone know stats about what happened in the early 90s with new builds?
  8. I assume then that you mean that the flats I mention are over-priced and also 1 beds will be more difficult to sell. My apologies for my ignorance here, but I'm not an expereinced buyer of flats and I confess I don't undersatnd the market at all. So far, I've had contadictory advice about this. Not naive, or trying to be funny.
  9. Blimey. Lots of doom and gloom! But its probably realistic doom and gloom! Actually, I think its worth distinguishing between a complete new build (ie a new development) and an old building that's been beautifully renovated. I assume an old building that's been renovated will likely fall less. Some really interesting posts though- there is a glut of new builds especially around the Docklands in London, which is where I live now.
  10. I can do yes. Why's that- Do you think that 1 beds will be hard to sell? Do you think these 1 beds are really badly over-priced?
  11. Hello, I'm new to this site so forgive me if this has already been covered! I'm currently looking at new build properties. Trouble is, how can I tell if they are realistically priced? I can't really compare them to other houses nearby as because they're new they are totally different really. Any ideas guys? Also, do you think new build flats are likely to fall further than others? Thanks, Steve
  12. Hi, I'm looking to buy in Surbiton and have so far seen 2 properties I like- http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-185...=3&tr_t=buy http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-177...=3&tr_t=buy Both new builds (or totally renovated), so its difficult to tell what their true value is. Do you guys think these are overpriced or do you know anything more about them? Thanks Steve
