    It really doesn't matter if you don't feel the town is well off or what irrelevant link you post, the fact is Reading is growing big time economically and financially and will continue to do so, its no good going against it, get used to it.

    Yet it keeps growing and attracting investment, strange

    Ahh I see, you have definitely done the right thing then if you want to move up. Trying to find something around here when you need to sell yours first is a nightmare, when you eventually find something nobody wants yours and when you get an offer on yours there is nothing on the market! Renting isn't great but if you can find something within a year or two you might be quids in, it would only take a 3% drop per annum on a 400k house for you to not be any worse off, you might have timed it to perfection!

    Could be a good decision but in hindsight late 2015/early 2016 was probably the time to sell. Is it going to fall much further, maybe, but history has shown around here at times of uncertainty people try their luck kite flying and if they don't get the price they want they simply take it off the market. When things look rosier you get the coiled spring effect where there is limited good stock and prices jump again i.e 1997 and 2013 onwards. You maybe right about the amount of new builds keeping prices down for older houses, I have noticed older houses going on for say 725 then 699 and then to 675 within a few months and then either selling or being taken off. Having said that most new build semi's are pushing £500,000 - £600,000 on the Shinfield/Spencers Wood, Jennets Park/ Cantley new build estates. Anyway good luck I hope you get what you want.

    Wow, in the top two towns for the 7th year running, https://www.readingchronicle.co.uk/news/17203760.reading-in-top-two-for-growth-for-seventh-year-running/ In fact GVA growing faster than London https://www.businessmag.co.uk/features/reading-uks-no-1-city-growth/ Doesn't sound like the tumbleweeds hitting the streets anytime soon

    I know its totally out of character for you Spyguy but you seem to have missed out a lot of the other reviews funnily enough: "First time at this shopping centre. Lovely and well layout out. Plentiful of shops, cafe and restaurants" "Excellent variety of shops, lots of places to grab a bit when you need to refuel. Brand new so really clean" "Much improved version! Loving the new Fenwicks in particular. Can’t wait to start my xmas shopping!! Lots of great shops and eating places plus my kids tell me the new cinema is fab!!" etc etc But actually one thing I do agree is why the f$ck bother as its never going to be able to compete with Reading. Saying that the £2.50 minimum parking charge as opposed to Reading's 4 squid does make it oh so tempting.

    "No he's not", thats what I dont understand Spyguy, obviously he wants to live here cant afford it, and then theres you who once lived here but couldnt afford it but continue to slate it. I know this area very very well, very well and I can safely say that yet again you (and Bear boy) are spouting bullsh$t. Sure there are lots of rentals, but when you are saying entire streets are rented you have to backup your bullsh$t, and there are NO STREETS IN READINg ENTIRELY RENTED. You've got to stop this one man band against Reading Spyguy, everything you put down about Reading is easily disproved, I know you couldnt afford to live here and cannot understand why people would rather live here rather than upt North but you need to get over this obsession with Reading, its unhealthy. So you have posted a link showing 741 properties for rent which I think is less than 1% of the properties in Reading, Whats your point? Of course there's Oxford road, who the f$ck would want to live there, but then again I wouldnt want to live in Peckham or Reddish or Sparkbrook or any other city sh$thole, who would. In fact 1 mile of Reading includes Shinfield, Sonning, Caversham, Tilehurst, Whistley Green, Binfirld Heath, Arborfield ... I think you've just proved theres not enough houses to go around 🐵

    You need to explain yourself a little better, that's twice in a row you said one thing but meant another. Of course you were talking about RPI but that's no good without the equivalent wage rise year on year otherwise your real world scenario of 7-10 years is just hot air and wishful thinking, isn't it. "hugely important in Reading with entire streets for rent " which streets are these? I can think of a few streets that have a lot of rented properties but I can't think of any that are entirely for rent, are you Spyguy in disguise?

    Yessssssss, thanks for clarifying its only 7 years instead of 40 to get back to 2014/15 prices , yippeee. So in your inflation adjusted real world scenario where everything you have stated will probably happen does that mean that if this £837000 house drops by compounded 2% a year over 7 years to £726000 my theoretical £100000 salary needs to compoundly rise by 3% year on year to £123000 to make your theory come true? If that is true and my superb wage growth (and presumely everyone else's) happens over the next 7-10 years, won't I and everyone else be competing for those houses before they get that low thus pushing up prices?
