  1. Let's get the tiny violins out. Here is a great read: https://www.wired.co.uk/article/airbnb-coronavirus-london
  2. Great, we had dinner with our Italian friends on Saturday. They have just returned from skiing in northern Italy. Their children in my son's school. No symptoms from them so far
  3. Apple have released this investor statement. Is this the start of big companies announcing big problems from COVID2019 https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2020/02/investor-update-on-quarterly-guidance/
  4. We are in same position. We had offer accepted 8% below asking. Done all surveys and solicitor fees etc. Last minute we actually are pulling out due to some building regs missing. The agent has said he could get them to drop it another 5%. As it is so late in process and the seller is in rush to move(schools). We had a 5 year fixed mortgage on 2 % so low rates. We are renting in a nice place. So I don't know if I should just go for it. We in South East.
  5. Have had an offer accepted on a house for 10% less than initial asking price. Am I crazy to be proceeding right in middle of Brexit shenanigans. I have been waiting for a decade and have lost out big time. Am I last bear turned before the great collapse?
  6. Here is another in Reading that asking has dropped below the last paid price: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-73678298.html Last sold in 2016 for £425 000
  7. I have found a house with actual big losses now: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-55554336.html Sold in 2017 for £405,000. Listed for sale initially at £450,000, then dropped and dropped. Now listed at £375,000. This is in a nice village near Henley-on-Thames. I wouldnt want it as it is on high street next to a coffee shop. But it shows when there is a need to sell big drops are to be had.
  8. A fixed link: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/may/22/nationwide-mortgage-lending-building-society-buy-to-let
  9. Thanks, I have added more, and will continue adding comments when I can. Nothing crazy just I know my local area well and keep track of these will hopefully help others.
  10. Are you personally moderating the comments GettingBored? Great extension by the way, I was half making similar and wanted a comment section, so well done for adding one. I have added two comments to properties I have viewed.
  11. Haha, I was about to post the same. I even took two copies of the paper, left one in the kitchen at work and another on a general table in the office. Great start to the morning
  12. Definition of chasing down the market: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-50458008.html In a very desirable road with big plots, but the actual house is odd, a lot of work spent on garden but the layout is not great, upstairs bedrooms restricted height and on a slope so extensions would be costly. I do get satisfaction knowing that the boomer owners originally thought they were getting in the region of £500K! It is now on sale with two agents and still not sold. I would imagine it would go soon as that road has some expensive properties on it.
  13. Yeah mate, this site has cost me so much money. Still havent got a house. I have given up and just will buy any old sh1te now. The wife is still against buying.
  14. My observation of Caversham/Emmer Green Areas is that more stock has come on sale, but anything half decent is selling if it is in price range of £350K to £450K from 3 beds. Anything not in a decent area is sticking such as Caversham Park, Caversham East. Pretty disappointing, I even arranged a viewing and they cancelled it before I could see it as someone offered on it on first day of listing. I thought it looked overpriced. Still a long way to go unfortunately. Weirdly though in the last two/three days a lot of Henley properties appearing for sale. It is a desirable area so prices are ridiculous, but not sure what has kicked off so many all at once to come onto market, normally one or two every few weeks in that area
