  1. A bit run down as old lady lived on her own. 3 bed on Daleswater on at £150k went for £132.5k so vacant posession and ann offer does work. Terraces in Silsden below 100k which have not seen for a while. Silden is a good location, road, rail, Dales, decent co-operative, decent places to eat out. Realistic prices sell. Plenty been on for ages at over inflated prices. Suspect a few sales are merry goe rounds A buys B buys C buys D buys A. Land with planning permission being offered for storage. Reckon some fields bought speculatively are also being sold.

    Skipton

    Living down the line from Skipton has a lot of advantages. It might technically be Bradford but is also West Yorkshire. Services and public transport are much better than North Yorkshire. Keighley is completely underated. Prices are lower than Skipton, for everything, and the choice is just as good.
  3. Prices dropping. House nearby been up for ages. Down to around £150k. Bungaloes dropping, but still OTT. New build has 'sold' signs. Curious to see what actual prices were when info becomes available.
  4. Load of new houses with sold sign on. Interesting to see what they went for. Prices generally dropping. Bungaloes at £225000 last year now nearer £180000 and still not moving. Terraced houses around £100000 seem to be selling - but final prices nearer £85000 appearing on land registry.
  5. Neither can I. Our Euro coins would have the Queens head on, and as for notes the monarchs head on notes is a recent innovation. It is more sentimental twaddle and wimp politicians (from all parties) that is keeping us out.
  6. In Spain earlier this year and noticed that tinned anchovies were costing more. Also they were harder to find in the supermarkets. Definitely fewer around. Back in the UK it is the same. (SWMBO likes to add them to pizza). Read about a shortage of Anchovies coming ashore, so in this case the market is worsening. Also check out bread prices. Food prices will go up as the old poor countries become richer on money from all the goods they make, so they will want the same choice of food as we have. In this respect I suspect the current crisis will in historic terms be a blip. At the moment rather to many items are too cheap because of artifically fixed exchange rates and employment practises we dumped over 150 years ago. It cannot last.
  7. A small development on the Halifax side of Denholme. Houses at £499000 reduced to £399000 in the local paper a while back. Passed today and noticed big sign offering houses for rent, and a web site that had 'auction' in it. In car so could not read it properly. Seems the 'price reduction' did not bring in punters!!!!!!!!!!! Getting tough for someone. Not the best of locations.
  8. New Mill close advertised at from £185 000. Land registry of one sold in June at £200 000? Seems a bit odd. One would have expected someone to have haggled the price down. Is there something I am missing? Awful lot of houses for sale around here and the prices on the land registry for the few others sold seem reasonable.
