  1. I have just bought, 34% off original asking price! sold mine in april at 5% off asking price. There are some good deals to be made now, more so over next 12m I am sure.
  2. I am buying too! I sold in April at 4.5% off asking price. I was lucky. Now is the time for me, managed to get a good discount 30% off asking. I am comfortable with it knowing the inevitable aorund the next 2-3 yrs.
  3. seems like ages since nethouseprices etc has updated its data, still only showing junes figures? I am sure it should be out by now. Anyone know what day of the month these sites are updated? thanks
  4. Thats a bit harsh, you dont know what he is buying, he could be getting a really good deal. In the current market there are good deals to be had.
  5. Got this email today, made me laugh talking about recovery in property market!
