  1. 5 pages please, impressive is not it. I am sure that no estate agents wanting to achieve this would have been able to like I have. I must admit, I feel quite proud. I should get myself started in an acting career as I am obviously quite gifted. I think I'll remove politics from the list of options as I do not seem very good at convincing people although I am not bad in my job I must say. I must be better at explaining IT stuff than trying to justify the truth. What's even more funny is how bored people must be to post things on this thread for so long as there is nothing into it but 5 pages o
  2. Hello, thank you for the comment on my language, I appreciate the comment about my written english. I have been living in the UK for 9 years now which may well explain. If you hear my accent, you'll have to doubt about where I come from though. However, I wrote for a big consulting firm for 5 years and you do have to do how to write ******** in well said manner, that's why my written english is not bad. I still make a lot of mistakes though e.g. I keep confusing sensible and sensitive as sensitive in french is spelt sensible. I have not lied, I can promise this and it may well be the english
  3. Thanks for taking the time to write such a long explanation and I think it deserves an answer. I agee, it can seem strange and a quick change. Let me tell you the whole story. End of September, having a baby starting to walk and run around, we decided that it was time to find a house in order to have a garden where she can go and run around. We started to visit property towards the end of September and until mid-October. At that point, we had not really found anything and our estate agent said that we would need to sell first as we would have little weight with sellers without selling. So we
  4. So this is how objective this forum is. When someone says: this guy reduced the price by 50% to sell, everyone would believe him without questionning but if you say things are picking up in your area, you're a liar or worse...an Estate Agent. Don't you think you guys are a bit too easy on the critics: All of you said we had to wait for the LR valuesto see the fall cause all the others were wrong. They come out and they're up, so now, the LR are liars as well(seen on many posts). Is not it too easy to treat everyone a liar as soon as they say something you don't want to hear. I am not saying
  5. Maybe we don't spend as much time as you on this forum so we don't know that it's been said before. You posted 3400 times in 9 months, that's an average of 20 per working days. What do you do for a living ? do you actually work ?
  6. you could not say it better. I am so amazed by the reaction. I just wrote this thinking that it would give people a view different from the VIs based on reality. I never said prices were not falling. My FLAT was valued at 190k a year ago (well that's what the neighboor sold theirs for) and I put it on for 175k so that's a big drop. All I wanted to say was that there was a regain of interest in the market based on actual reality and not just lenders or EA talks. But heh, now I am a liar, an EA and a VI altogether. You can't win can you !
  7. well, the problem with Thames Ditton is that, houses or flats have gone up so much in the last 5 years that residents think that they own a rare precious home. Thames Ditton is over-priced by a long shot and I never understood why. It is niceish but there's nothing there apart form retired people having a tea in the local tea room. I went to a pub by the thames there and, although it's nice, it's not my age range. So as far as getting FTB in there (and flats are for FTB), it's gonna be difficult.
  8. Well, that's funny you say that because Georges Wimpey (I don't know how big a developer they are) are buiding 60 flats in west molesey on hurst park (you can find a lot of them for sale on findaproperty. Personally I find these are crazy prices, 160k for a small 1 bed flat even though the flats are nice. They are struggling a bit to sell them though (they have offered discounts if you buy on plans). They have 10 finished and have sold about 5 so far. I don't know about the planned ones though.
  9. so be it, I am a liar and you are the truth of the world. I give up on you but please keep posting these interesting analysis.
  10. well, that' because you don't know the area and you don't know where the ones not selling are. Look at how many town house style houses (70s) you can see for sale and how many are sold ( a few are overpriced I agree and not selling). They can easily be recognised to to the tiled walls and the large bay windows. These all are on a nice area close to the thames and the good school although, I must admit, the buildings themselves are ugly. West Molesey is half private, half ex-concil or concil. You just have to know which end you want to be in and people wanting to buy will quickly figure that
  11. I am very sorry I am creating so much craziness. Would that help If I tell you that English is not my first language. I meant home when I used house but I am sure that you are not going to make this mistake if I ask you to tell me this in French, Spanish or German. I am glad people worry about such important things in life as the calling of a home.

  13. Well I am glad someone who knows the area believes me. To answer your question, the area is great but you have to be careful about where you go. Hurst Park and anything around new road is great as close to the thames and close to the good schools. Anything below walton road is to avoid (high street, First Avenue with the flat roof houses). The schools there are not good and there's a lot of concil, ex-concil houses. I'd advise you to check upmystreet.com for any street you view as I found it to be very acurate as far as what is there. Hurst Road is a bit noisy but close to the thames, Wal
  14. Well sorry for the previous post, it was a flat and not a house. But I am sure that you can explain what difference it makes to the topics in question. as for what I said here, if you don't believe me, ignore me but don't try and say that I am a liar as I have no interest to lie (but I am sure someone will find a good reason). I am just reporting what I have seen in my little world (5 sq miles). It may well be very different 10 miles down the road but I have not visited any houses there.
  15. No it took them a lot longer than that as most of them had been on the market for a while when I visited them. What I meant was that they all sold in the last 3-4 weeks, nothing about how long they've been on the market
