  1. Sales in North Bucks (MK18): March 2004: 81 March 2005: 21 which is a 74% drop. In my local area (reasonably sized town within MK18): March 2004: 8 March 2005: 1 which is an 87% drop!
  2. I like the picture of the estate agent on the "Full Brochure" pdf. He's got this "isn't it just fantastic" look about him. Tw@t.
  3. Was watching "Have I got old news for you" the other night and the odd one out round included a couple who were forced to move from "Butt Hole Road" ! http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_83184...u=news.quirkies
  4. How do you clock up over £160,000 on a credit card and still think that you know what you're doing??? Stupid idiot meets irresponsible lender.
  5. In Brackley... House in local paper priced at "£229,500 until 7th March" in big bold type. Are they thinking that the price will go up in March?? Also, house that was on the market last year at £274K, for almost all of 2004, has finally come down by a massive £5K. What a bargain. In Buckingham... House originally on the market at £274K. I went to view this last summer - they offered to throw in a 20 year old Porsche (924 - the crap one) - if we paid near the asking price. Someone fell for it late last year, but it's now back on the market at £268K. Porsche still included. The house
  6. Here's an article from this weekend's Oxford Times about repossessions in Oxfordshire - Quote: "We are also seeing a lot of people who have borrowed against the equity in their houses and are generally stretched to the limit with other debts as well." It's not surprising, seeing as the average price of a house in Oxfordshire is so high.
  7. That was definitely the worst house I've ever seen. Cheer yourself up by looking at this one - on the upside, it's much cleaner, on the downside, it's two sheds for >£200K. http://www.haywardwhite.co.uk/c.mhtml?k=35...=true&show_fpl= Mad.
  8. How about this "unique opportunity": http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-395..._t=buy&chnl=buy Although it's only a mobile home & garden shed, there's always the potential to develop a dream home, er, except as they kindly point out, planning permission has recently been refused (and the appeal also refused!). £650K ?? Dream on.
  9. Blackbird Leys - where the bus drivers refuse to go after dark.
  10. How about this one? This seems to have been slipped in between two houses whilst no one was looking. Yours for only £162,500. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/rm/template/pub...pa_n=6&tr_t=buy
  11. And there's more... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/rm/template/pub...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy and it's cheaper twin: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/rm/template/pub...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy Been like this for a couple of months now.
  12. Renting for one or two years more is a small price to pay rather than be saddled with a large mortgage for 25 years. The urge to buy somewhere,anywhere is very strong if all you want is to find somewhere to call home. Renting is not so bad if you have a good landlord and you are flexible to move. Stay positive.
  13. Had a walk down Newport Pagnell high street today - all EA's windows full of houses, but not a single customer in any of them. As I stopped to have a look, I got worried that one of them might come out and beg me to come in.
  14. For those of you living near Manchester, you could have your own luxury caravan style magic cube apartment, from only £85,000. http://www.manchesteronline.co.uk/homesear...ct_formula.html What will they think of next??
