  1. Reduced from 485k to 425k http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-39195905.html
  2. Dear Miller&Son, When adding 595k properties to Rightmove don't you think that a few photos of the inside would be a good idea? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-38895515.html
  3. I agree - it's obvious when a house is priced to sell compared to a 'we'll just sit it out in the hope...' listing. Also a few of the EA's are plain lazy with the listings, it's a shame they don't show the exact location, it would save so much time woth google maps. I plan to be over in mid-November with a list of properties to look at, before then I'll no doubt have a list of questions for forum members. Here's a bungalow I like the look of: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-35063041.html
  4. Soon it'll just collapse. Me - I'm not going back to 'the rock', Cornwall is my retirement area. You would have to be a fool to move to the island from somewhere else, there are very dark clouds on the horizon and an incompetent government.
  5. Which is where I'm looking. 500k including stamp duty, bungalow with decent sized garden, pub withing staggering distance (1 mile or so).

  7. Interesting - the area I'm looking at is the south coast, seen some great properties there.
  8. So the webcams in Cornwall are run by the tourist board with a healthy spot of Photoshopping ?
  9. My thoughts entirely. Problem with Feb / March is some will decide to keep the price high in the hope that some daft plonka will buy their hut once the sun starts to shine. Anyway I'll be there as a cash buyer and will be ruthless.
  10. House prices hit by sharpest drop since 2009 Nationwide building society figures show a 0.7% decrease in July and a 2.6% annual fall From the Grauniad: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2012/aug/01/house-prices-sharpest-drop-since-2009 i wonder how this will affect Cornwall - I plan to be over in November making a few offers in the retirement bungalow areas.
  11. OK, what do you think about this: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-34188082.html?utm_content=ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdatesjun11&utm_term=buying&sc_id=5737829&onetime_FromEmail=true I like it, I'll be buying late 2012 / early 2013.
  12. Lots of houses on the market, many at silly prices, Chief Minister not being professional. Crash coming but it doesn't appear to be coming soon.
  13. At that price I like it as well. I'm now serious about buying in Cornwall later this year / early next year, max price incl. stamp duty of 500k. For my hobby of Amateur Radio it's a wonderful location, there are others of course.
  14. Throw in first born and a poodle or two...
  15. Asking price - 5%, otherwise reasonable value.
  16. Excellent speed here, before it was sluggish to put it mildly.
  17. For some odd reason Rightmove decided there were many new properties on the market, all with summer photos. This one I like, take off 100k and it's mine http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-20210049.html?utm_content=ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdatesjun11&utm_term=buying&sc_id=5797254
  18. Well yes, I am looking at warmer climes, but who knows? I almost agree about 40% - the 'stupid' brigade should drop by 40%, the rest by 15% to 20%.
  19. I have 24 properties in my saved list, 3 have been taken off by the EA's, the rest still on the market. Price range is 450 to 600k. Also I'm seeing some realistic 'priced to sell' properties along with the fantasy 'we will sit it out' prices. Sadly still lots of crap.

  21. Another example of why EA's should be shot at dawn: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-8514885.html?utm_content=ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdatesjun11&utm_term=buying&sc_id=5737829 Price 545k (absurd), 5 photos (lazy)
  22. I see this as being excellent news for cash buyers in 2013 - anyone disagree?
