Report New Houses In My Village in House prices and the economy Posted May 2, 2009 There is a small development of new houses in my village. Some apartments, terraced, semi's and detached houses. At a guess about 40 properties. I would have considered buying one but the prices were scarily high. I had a good relationship with the sales agent and we had lots of communication. I was convinced that these properties would not sell. But they have. Very slowly but one by one they have gone. One thing I find surprising is that there are at least six of those properties on rightmove now available for rent. I've seen that on other new developments too. I'm surprised that people want to BTL still and wonder am I missing something here?
