  1. My viewing areas (Lake District (not for me, the mrs dreams though), Lytham and Arnside) have had some kiteflying action taking place this week. It looks like some people know what is coming and are trying to bale out at peak, peak, peak prices. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-79440217.html @200k more than the next most expensive sale in the street, good luck with that! Classic too big for the plot. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-70467840.html 2 bed? No storage. Need to be a mountain goat to get to that terrace. Last sold 2017, now on for 50k more 28/07/2017 £350,000 10 Lingmoor View, Chapel Stile, Ambleside, LA22 9JP Fair play though, fire on, flowers in the vase, pomagne on the patio, open book by the wistful window. Aaaaand here it is https://www.heartofthelakes.co.uk/property/langdale-valleys/annandale/2050
  2. Just listened to a property agent whining on LBC ( 08:40ish ) Crying becuase his accountant told him to take minimum salary from his company and the rest in dividends to not pay NI. Now saying if the govt. base their self-employed benefits on his salary, he won't be ablle to survive!! FFS!!!!
  3. Airbnb'ers are going to get hammered. Tourism is down fullstop, and while you may have some faith that hotels will properly sanitise the room/bathroom, doors etc, there is no such comfort in an airbnb. If they drop prices to attract people, even less chance they will squander on cleaning.
  4. On TalkRadio at the moment, phone in about BTL. The presenter, Cristo Foufas, is a BTL landlord, so could be interesting. I wonder if it will be similar to the early morning James Max show, which has a property ramper on every morning at the moment.
  5. Seems like ridiculous money in 2006, and now also a crazy price.
  6. It’s a consultation at the moment. All over the news. TalkRadio just had the RLA on saying it was a bad thing (obviously worded such that they cared about the tenants). The end of S21 should ease pressure on councils as the low end of renters on HB won’t be so often back on their doorstep.
  7. Ooh, mad gainz not realised in Grange-over-Sands 02/09/2009 £370,000 High Sands, The Heads, Grange-Over-Sands, LA11 7EE and today https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61571541.html SSTC at asking price £365k, so you'd think 350k absolute tops. And another 10/10/2006 £310,000 30 The Esplanade, Grange-Over-Sands, LA11 7HH and today https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-68507509.html SSTC at asking price £359k, so you'd think 335k absolute tops. 24/01/2014 £560,000 Heatherglen, Rockland Road, Grange-Over-Sands, LA11 7HR Asking today https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61572420.html Asking price £565k, so lost money over the last 5 years. 06/06/2017 £340,000 Red Gables, 12, Highfield Road, Grange-Over-Sands, LA11 7JA Asking today https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-79715927.html Asking £375k, however it's been on and off the market for at least 6 months. The Brexit decision has shaken the tree and I'm seeing the ones delisted in the winter relisted after that sping bounce.
  8. Can’t work out if this is joshing or serious, but P118 muppet is saying 1000 properties and worth £100million etc. https://www.property118.com/fergus-wilson-bbc-panorama-monday/comment-page-3/#comments He must be having a giraffe.
  9. I can‘t imagine you can build on the park, or charge to use it, and the paths through it seem owned by the council. Maybe it’s the builder trying to shift his liabilities, and the council doesn’t want them either.
  10. This one caught my eye as a new listing, sure I’ve seen it before. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-60590265.html#_full-description Not a bad house, EA description is sickening though, and the staged kitchen (nice kitchen), is straight from Krusty herself. Recipe book open, bottle of red with two glasses, fresh ciabatta and cherry tomatoes, herb pot. Unfortunately, street view tells a different story. On a 12% hill with the road outside your window and up the side of the garden (queue labouring engines) and on a sharp bend. There’s a house right outside , and worse of all, a shared drive where the other neighbour has ‘control’ of your access. 3 bed, half a million squid, no thanks.
  11. A lot of listings coming on again from last year, prices the same mind you. A huge amount of dross needing rewires, heating systems, kitchens and bathrooms, and driveways for some reason. All top dollar. I think this is my favourite overpriced one at the moment: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-74360447.html
  12. Massive ramping on Talkradio this morning (approx 6:20 onwards). Some guy from mylondonhome. Everything got wheeled out, including the Elisabeth line and Reading boost to house prices. It was as if it’s been impossible to get from Reading to the West end before now, and they implied it would also boost student numbers!!!! Anyway, the peach was the comment about buying somewhere and then using it as an Airbnb. Well worth a listen if you want the amusement of all the old chestnuts as to why now has never been a better time to buy.
  13. Detached 5-bedder, offers over £499,950 Dear me, a third off. That's quite a sting if they need or have 'spent' the extra 250k in their minds. Looks like a nice place, however only 200m from the M6, so that'll be a 'no' for most people.
  14. Not even the whole of the first floor. Probably that house is now 6 flats. Wooden floors, it's going to be noisy.
