  1. Thanks for the replies. The house itself is now owned by a bank. I think the believe the previous owner has passed away and the money from the sale will be going to some sort of charity. My fear is that in 12-24 months time, I could a similar house at a similar price without any extensive remedial works required. This website has messed with my head.
  2. This is the house. I could happily live there. I've lived in this area for most of my life and it's close to the local schools and transport networks. My main concern is the possibility of a huge crash in the North West. Can we expect house price to drop further than this, considering it's at 3.5x my salary already? How much did they fall in the previous crash?
  3. So I placed an offer on a 2 bed Semi, it's been accepted and I wasn't expecting this. It was originally up for £95k and they've accepted £75k. The house itself needs redecorating throughout and I'd need to install a new kitchen and bathroom. A house in the same street was sold for £111k in 2005 and some were previously sold in 2002 for £40-50k. I have a 15% deposit and I found a mortgage (fixed at 5.49% for 3 years) that would cost less than what I pay for my rent. £75k is also 3.5x my salary. I was just testing the water with the offer. I see this week that the media might be finally turning bear and I'm now unsure what to do. The house is in the North West. Can we expect more significant falls in the North West or should I go for it considering figures look good?

  5. The title and the first paragraph in this are so annoying. http://www.dailymarkets.com/stocks/2010/04/30/englandwales-house-prices-continue-to-rise-in-march/
  6. Live feed from her house. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/election2010/liveevent/
  7. Where can I find the regional figures? What did the North West go down by?
  8. The thing is, the BBC have just reported what the Land Registry has said. The real story is that the LR is talking utter crap.
  9. Can someone answers this persons question? I'm would also like to know the answer. Edit: Thanks.
  10. Wow, this is impressive. My postcode went down from 43 sales in December to 6 in January. It's the same for all my local postcodes as well. Hopefully these stats are up to date.
  11. Could this be it finally? Fingers crossed. How many more negative results until the media starts to take real notice?
