  1. I don't know the actual price it sold for. Just know the offer on it before it went sale agreed. TR show the current offer which was 565k when I pasted the link roughly 10 mins before it went agreed.
  2. Sale agreed 10 minutes after I posted this... 5% under asking. Look like BT9 has started to cool before the STDL exemption removal.
  3. Best time to sell was 6 months ago. I'm seeing houses that would have sold in a week at 10% over asking price, sitting with offers under and going nowhere. A few have obviously fallen through too. Good example here. Offers at 565k. One of the most sought-after streets in BT9. I've no doubt this would have been at 650k in September. https://www.templetonrobinson.com/property/malone/trltrl91305/72-osborne-park/
  4. Tesla employ 50k to build 500k cars. 10 cars per employee. VW employ 670k for 11 million cars. 16.5 cars per employee. Tesla won't be catching VW anytime soon in terms of efficiency and employee utilisation.
  5. My God. 1 million cars!!! They'll soon be able to make the same amount of cars VW make in a month. Mind blowing.
  6. The government has pumped £300 billion into the economy through various covid support measures. The wages of close to 150k people in NI are currently being paid by government. SDLT had be temporarily abolished for the vast majority of transition. There will be no crash until all this works out. March 3rd is the budget. Expect tax rises.
  7. VW have sold 50 million cars since 2015 (dieselgate). Can't see attitudes changing anytime soon.
  8. You're probably right. Closer to 15k is where it should be at but when a 30k 400 mile BEV can be had for £300 a month on PCP and covered by DLA mobility I think it will be a game changer.
  9. I think you're missing the point. It doesn't matter to the average car buyer that Tesla can provide a 500 mile range car with a sub 2 sec 0-60 @ £131k. The game changer is the 400 mile range sub £30k. Until its available, I believe the ICE ban will be pushed back.
  10. I haven't even noticed. Are rentals way up? What has surprised me is the massive number of Airbnb. Phenomenal amount. I'm guessing where your BTL was the dinner party conversation in 2005. It was Airbnb in 2018.
  11. It's not a bad spot. Depends where you are I suppose. The vast majority of places are well beyond that now thank god. Still certain bars I wouldn't feel comfortable having a pint myself. Its not a big issue for me. I can stick a 7kw charger at home and 22kw in the office. Similarly, as I'd be buying through my company the sums are different, so I've no incentive to lobby. What I'm getting at, is for the "average" person, while 250 mile range will be ok, I think closer to 400 is where it needs to be at, with a sub 30k price to get over range anxiety. Savings on running costs are all intangible until you start driving the car. The thing that will get bums on seats are range and price. Like I said before, the other stuff like acceleration are niche.
  12. Bt9 isn't really moving now. Who is going to enter a transaction now, knowing you'll be paying 000's more in SDLT if you don't manage to complete in 8 weeks. All those transactions brought forward trying the engineer a miniboom will be causing a transaction depression in Q1 2021. Who'd have thought it.
  13. I live in Ireland. My nearest supercharger is about 80 miles away. In Belfast there are about 4 16kw tesla charging stations and no super chargers. About 30% of the population commute into Belfast. Say you're travelling from the other city here for work, that's a 150 mile round trip. You'd probably get 10 hours charge time a night, max. I'd have some range anxiety during winter on that.
  14. So 131k for 530 mile range 111k for 400 mile range All the other stuff, for average Joe, is just fluff. They want the range. 0-60 can be 10 seconds for all they care. 400 mile range sub 30k, everyday car. That's where it needs to be. I'm all for BEV, plenty of other savings, 1 % BIK, first year write off etc, but for someone outside London, non company car, used to buying something like a basic spec mondeo or insignia, they aren't anywhere near that yet.
  15. I'm noticing quite a few in my area back on after sale agreed. One on my particular street went for crazy money after a month listing, back on for a month then removed from the market. I imagine it will be very quiet until the end of March unless SDLT holiday is extended pronto.
  16. You might possibly get a semi decent year in 2021, after you've got no business for probably 8 months of the year, every year. I expect everyone and their dog will be off on a foreign holiday in 2022. 1.3 mill was absolute fantasy money. 500k who knows. I wouldn't like to being paying it back on £70 a night room rates for 120 days a year, that's for sure.
  17. Top 1% is 160k. I wouldn't like to be on that "little" and trying to raise a family in London.
  18. I remember being amazed getting into my uncles 5 series to get a lift to school on a freezing December morning and the thing was blowing out hot air as soon as it started. My Dad's escort would still be trying to get to temp now.
  19. My understanding is people in general go for very low deposit "deals". This might be 4 year, 48 month agreements, but the 50% spot won't be at month 24 because it includes interest and fees on the total agreement value. For many, they won't hit the 50% figure until month 40.
