  1. Why do you ask? Are you unable to compete against them?
  2. They have been forged in a culture that does not rely on benefits.
  3. I repost from an earlier thread "Not so in the NW, M6 north of Lancaster, Kendal, Carnforth etc. On right move there have been a number of reductions in asking price recently on properties under 300,000...many with no chain https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/77842101#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78748794#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78015153#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/89193112#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/93422408#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/84146291#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properti
  4. Yes they could but kinda defeats the object unless they are forced sellers...
  5. I( am not taken in with the odd hotspot being hyped by VI's.. Property Lion is recording drops in transaction volumes across the country. If there is a shortage of houses then how many chains are going to falter because buyers cannot find anything to move into...? I can see a scenario where few contracts are actually exchanged... In my, not so humble, opinion, Estate Agents and other VI's are having to pump up the market as they need to increase commission due to lower volume of sales... So they take a hotspot as an indicator of what is happening across the UK.
  6. "Agents are telling me that because stock is so few and far between they’re advising home owners to first get an offer accepted on their own home, and they’re finding that many buyers are more willing to then give owners a bit more time to find their next place to move to before the chain can get moving.” If there is a shortage of houses then how many chains are going to falter because buyers cannot find anything to move into...?
  7. Nice summary and thanks for the link to plumpot, very good resource Couple of points though: The Lancaster post code area includes Kendal...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LA_postcode_area so you are contradicting yourself slightly in your post. Indeed the Lancashire postcode area covers 17 towns in Lancashire, South Cumbria and N. Yorkshire. Many of these properties are in National Parks and areas of outstanding beauty. As I have posted (listed above) before a fair number of properties have been on the market since 2019. If there is a shortage of properties for sale, wher
  8. Nope.. Manchester is not the North West.

  10. I lived in North Devon 30 years ago. Barnstaple. Back in the day Ilfracombe was almost turned into a ghetto when landlords bought up massive hotels, did them up and then advertised in Liverpool and Glasgow for tenants who were unemployed. As a result Drug use and crime became a real problem as a large contingent of people with massive socio-economic problems made an exodus from these inner cities to Ilfracombe. May have changed now though. Very seasonal with little industry. Good surfing though!
