  1. I'd love for you to be right but I think prices will remain flat for years. I hope I am wrong of course and that prices plummet but my fear is that the government will do everything in their power to keep them propped up. We're in uncharted territory when it comes to the economy and markets, literally anything could happen. Who would have predicted that v-shape recovery in the US markets in March? Who would have thought that UK property prices would have increased during the last 6 months? Mortgage holidays, the banning of evictions, the list goes on. My next door neighbour has just put t
  2. I plan on updating the website very soon, it's a bit archaic so needs an overhaul. There is already a pop up in the extension, it appears once a month if you view over a certain amount of listings within that month (I cannot remember the exact number without checking the code). The popup is seen by a few thousand users each month, of which about 10 actually donate. I usually break even on the server costs thanks to the generosity of users on this site Thanks for your continued support Any donation makes a difference as it means I don't have to pay for the servers out of my
  3. I've just checked the link and it appears to be working for me? Btw, thank you for the kind donation, it's really appreciated! I am going to post an update in this thread very soon, it's been a while since I've done one. Thanks for the continued support everyone 😀
  4. This was the most popular article on the BBC News app this morning... Anyway, according to the Property Log stats there were 3k reductions in the last 24h. Last month, the average was around 4.5k.
  5. I've been working from home since the start of lockdown and have really enjoyed it. Productivity is way up, company seems to be doing well and I get an extra 2 hours of my day back (no more commute). I did put on some weight (which I've nearly shifted), and I found myself working through lunch but I now make sure I take a full hour and go for a walk. Whilst the office has reopened only about 5% of employees have gone back. Only two people in my team want to go back to the office, the rest of us don't. Management are "monitoring" the situation and following government guidelines but i
  6. Next release will have an option to turn percentages on and off Thanks for your continued support in using the extension, it's great to see reductions like this!
  7. My opinion on whether there will be a HPC is changing every day at the moment. I have wanted one for years, I was a lurker on this site in 2008 and thought back then that after the financial crisis it would be a perfect buying opportunity but because my situation changed in a heartbeat I wasn't in the position to buy. The Government will do everything to prevent a fall in house prices, most the population don't want a HPC, we're in the minority and I feel we are not going to get our way. If we do get our way and there is a crash, how long is it going to take? Nobody knows! Also, how many
  8. I will add this to my todo list as I agree, it would be an extremely useful feature especially going forward as it will expose estate agents and their tricks!
  9. I missed this in my last reply. It's not easy to track this because sometimes the EA will create a brand new listing that contains a different property id. If the EA takes the property down (SSTC for example) and then puts it back up if a sale falls through then the price history will remain but unfortunately the status isn't recorded in the log. If any of you remember Property Bee from about 10+ years ago then you'll recall that the extension used to record the status change, as well as everything else (change of EA phone number, address, what you had for dinner etc). It used a local dat
  10. I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated since my post yesterday, I'm extremely grateful! Your donations have been a massive help and it's one less bill I need to worry about paying this month! I won't go into too much detail on here but my personal circumstances have changed quite dramatically in recent months (like many others I imagine). I think a lot of people might assume that if you're on this site then you're sitting on a house deposit/nest egg, wealthy and have a good job... this is not the case for me unfortunately (on all 3 counts)! Thanks also to Th
  11. I could but the usage of the extension would drop massively and PL relies on lots of users to find the thousands of price changes discovered every day. I once wrote a free Android and iPhone app which had around 100k downloads. I switched the iPhone version from free to paid and worked out that on average only 1 in 100 users would pay for it...! Free is the way to go I think There is the option of adding enhanced features and offering a Pro version but this is just something I run in my spare time. Ad hoc donations can provide enough to cover running costs, I am not looking to make
  12. Glad you like it and are finding some reductions. You can donate here: https://www.propertylog.net/donate
  13. Update - June 2nd 2020 It's been 11 months since my last update so I felt it was a good time to post an update on Property Log as a lot has happened over that time. So what's been happening? Nearly every day a new usage record is set and our total installs is increasing slowly, we're now just shy of 15k users which is amazing! There are between 2.5 - 3k daily unique users who are finding a significant number of price changes on Rightmove. Currently, we're at about 60% the number of daily reductions of pre-covid but it's increasing every day, there has been a significant increase
