  1. Just find the postcodes and use: https://landregistry.data.gov.uk/app/ppd/ Rightmove etc Not really sure what you mean? (noting you have no posting history also, so motivation unclear)
  2. Since 2010, several luxury apartment blocks have been constructed along City Road, between the Old Street roundabout and the Angel. These include the Canaletto Tower, 250 City Road, The Lexicon (Chronicle Tower), The Eagle (Eagle Point), The Atlas Building, Bezier Apartments and others. These contain units that in many cases sold new in excess of £1M and often significantly more for those on their upper "penthouse" floors. The latest Land Registry Monthly Price Paid Data for May 2019 was released a few days ago on 28 June. I spotted what seems to be a huge loss on one of these
  3. Staiths Southbank, Gateshead - Incomplete block of flats I'm surprised this one hasn't apparently been discussed before. I notice this skeleton of a block every time I cross the River Tyne by the Redheugh Bridge. It's at the eastern end of the former Wimpey Staiths Southbank site, on the Gateshead Quayside, not far from the Metrocentre. The block is incomplete and has the appearance of being abandoned. There are no fittings, or machinery to be seen and even the site hoardings are now starting to fall into disrepair with paint fading. It seems to be have been in this condition since ar
  4. Some thoughts for Newcastle / Gateshead First-Tiime Buyers in Autumn 2010 Note: None of the following is professional advice, just personal opinion - use at your own risk. I spoke with a young friend over the weekend who announced she was viewing a 2-bed quayside flat, her intention being to "get on the property-ladder". I asked if she knew if it was a repo, what the previous sale price had been and what neighbouring properties were worth. She knew none of this but was confident in this first step being one to secure a better future. I told her there is no excuse these days to be unpre
  5. Haha, isn't Google streetview great. Have a look here. Just use your arrow key to scroll around to the right and see what the outlook is from these luxury flats. The back isn't much better with what looks like a classic run down council estate. I note there is one flat on sale here on Rightmove (NE24 1LD) for £27K.
  6. Blyth new-builds crash - Northumberland Court, NE24 1LD Here's another example of the scale of losses being encountered locally, lot 71 from the results of the 27 July 2010 Barnard Marcus Auction in London. 11 Northumberland Court, was sold new in May 2008 for £165K. Just 26 months later it was sold at auction in July 2010 for £27K. That's a shocking 84% crash, equivalent to losing £5,300 every month, before mortgage repayments ! Just how did anyone ever believe a FLAT to be worth £165K in Blyth where the average salary is probably around £14K.
  7. Mate, keep up ! Scroll up just a little. Over two weeks ago, from post #3124 we discussed this one ! That said, I think you might be right in your last sentence.
  8. Meow is absolutely correct. Whilst I bought my new build lego brick in 2001, I had been looking at Gateshead Tyneside flats in 2000. I still have many of the Estate Agents sheets with house numbers, photos and prices from the time. I was considering scanning and posting them here and elsewhere just to prove to people how mad things got and how far we still have to fall. Of course since those days (albeit quite recent) we have excellent resources like http://www.houseprices.co.uk. Just pick a street in Gateshead and go to the LAST page of results which will have sale prices for 1999/20
  9. Cameronian Square, Worsdell Drive, Ochre Yards, Gateshead NE8 - Heavy price falls continue in 2010 2 bed Flat number 11, was £170K new in July 2006. 48 months later in August 2010 it might be going for £90K. Also detailed here . That's an £80K fall, or £1,600 per month loss, before considering mortgage costs. Spirits must be low among the owner occupiers of the former Greensfield Railway siding site with news like that. Anyone else have any info on how hard or otherwise it is to sell down there?
  10. Thanks for that Physics34 More on The Turnbull... Brochure Original website from 2001 - the website at the domain theturnbull.co.uk is now unused
  11. Turnbull Building, Quayside - Apartment "loses" £0.5 million in 7 years This was the flat that I believe Sting was rumoured to have been interested in and was billed as Newcastle's first 1 million pound flat at the height of the boom in Autumn 2003 - here featured in BBC's Inside Out series. Now in July 2010 it's up for sale at a guide price of £495K - offers could possibly be substantially less than that. Looking at the photos it looks like it has never been occupied, or indeed sold - so the loss is only on paper. Does anyone know any more about this one?
  12. Northern Rock makes 650 job cuts by end of 2010 Reported on BBC Look North, more this evening. Here we go, may this be the start of Newcastle's HPC double dip? Edit: On BBC News web site
  13. Tyne Bridge Tower to be demolished I note that (by following the link at the bottom of all my posts) Gateshead Council are applying to demolish the above tower block which blights the south end of the Tyne Bridge and spoils the vista of the Sage, Church and River. Whilst originally set to be demolished when the quayside plans were being formed, a mad plan to convert it to flats with parking spaces for bikes only was submitted a couple of years ago at the height of the boom. Fortunately the developer got cold feet at the 11th hour and withdrew. Demolition is by far the best option, but mi
  14. The thing is , they're not really delusional at the present. All the big falls, and there have been plenty on the quayside as I have reported in the Newcastle thread will in large have been due to repos - not many can survive a £1000 per month mortgage for a few months when there's no one to rent it at that price. Thus the HPC is stalled here until the next group of people,those who NEED to move(probably to take a job elsewhere in the country) are eventually forced to yield and accept a lower price to get a sale. I do believe we are seeing examples of this in St James Village, Felling (Sand
  15. 2010 Prices crashes at the appartments, Mill House, Hannover Street, Newcastle, NE1 3AG A further sale showing a loss has filtered through to houseprices.co.uk from this 2008 new build development Appartment 6 sold in March 2010 for £125K, just 18 months after it was bought new in Sept 2008 for £170K. Thats a 26% or £45K crash. Appartment 3 in the same block sold late last year with a similar fall. On the whole, prices in the quayside area seem to be stabilising at the £100-£125K level for 2-beds. Although I expect further falls may happen, it may be some time, till base rates rises s
