  1. i went to view this one - impo it need a full refurb - i fed back to the agent that i thought it was at least 100k overpriced - turns out i was right!
  2. alot of my dr friends have very large deposits in addition to making (so far as swansea is concerned) a very good income.All of these, with no exeption, are simply refusing to pay the crazy prices in west swnsea.As the discussion has mentioned west is best, however west was best 7-8 years ago when prices were half of what they are now.Incomes have not gone up 50% in the medical/legal world in these times, do the math as they say. People can afford these prices but the sensible ones do not want to put all their eggs in one basket - most would rather money for living, holidays, holiday homes abroad rarther spend 600k on a farly motest detached house perhaps just a mile from where they are living now. Most people who bought into the bubble are finished, they will not get a new competitive mortage rate as the banks will not lend, no holidays, no eating out all just to live in an overpriced house.Mad.
  3. "state of the market"? - from what i can make out, very, very little has sold over the peak summer months.Even less over the 500k mark.I really wonder how some agents not involved with lettings are keeping afloat and i cannot see anything getting any better for some time.The bubble has well and truely burst! The only ones that have sold are sensibly priced ones which you can spot will sell straight away.
  4. Speaks volumes.1 million for a flat below a pub! http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/cost-high-living-cool-pound-1m/story-13102702-detail/story.html
  5. Third Wave - i noticed that one from WWH - mad, just mad.That will have to drop to at least £320k.
  6. This house was on with We Will Homes for some time.The asking price was offers around 500k.It did not sell and was put up for auction recently, from what i gather it was then sold and withdrawn from said auction.Bearing in mind the asking price 500k (it appears to need alot of work) why is it now straight back on the market at 575k!!! http://www.gowercoastproperties.com/property_search/index.asp?WCI=Particular&WCE=002153657&CURRENCY=GBP One born every minute!
  7. i agree - insane price - they have tarted it uo quite well but is a semi in west cross at the end of the day! That said, the 1.5m house i refered to recently is SSTC! Rumour has it the mangager of the swans has bought it.
  8. yes watched with interest this evening, difficult to have much sympathy i must say.
  9. i thought this had sold a while ago, was on the market for ages and was the subject on conversation on here for a while! http://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/11706614?search_identifier=fd2a1fcdc6e5151c55559028f052df1a
  10. yes you are right, i am not sure about the price but the land was the house behinds front garden.Say 60k plus 150 k to knock it up, plenty of profit for some one (if they sell)
  11. I agree - how about this one? just changed agents but remains the same price? No views close to the road and no garden - much nicer stuff on for the money.Maybe a premiership pad?? http://www.gowercoastproperties.com/property_search/index.asp?WCI=Particular&WCE=002210679&CURRENCY=GBP
  12. New house gone on with GCP for 1.5 million.Great views but bedroom window20 feet from the main road! 500k overpriced?? Its just at the bottom of Higher Lane in Langland
  13. Likewise, i had/have no axe to grind!, merely an observation based on reading many of the posts written here over a considerable amount of time.Interesting to labeled a"troll" for expresing a view that someone does not like!
  14. fair enough! at the end of the day life moves on quite fast so if you want a house just buy one and get on with life and enjoy! (long term who cares if you lose/gain a few grand!)
  15. I am not an agent! but buying houses is actually quite similar to buying most things, if you go to the Porsche showroom and ask for a test drive every Saturday on the basis that you might buy one, after 2 years the salesman might just get a bit fed up and suspect your just another dreamer and cease to be of any assistance to you!
  16. With all due respect it would appear that you have been looking and indeed not found a house for a very long time.The agent involved might have formed the opinion that you are not really serious about ever buying??
  17. walking through Mumbles over the weekend, Adams restaurant closed - repossesed i think by owner Michael Knight - Moonlight curry house closed Mon Tue and Wed and some other Bistro shut - does not look good down there! Prices seem to be going down alot as well - a few worried westies about?
