    http://www.espc.com/Buying/274608.html This place is UNDER OFFER!!! I don't know how professional exclaimation marks are, but 3 of them shows either surprise or excitement at the sale of a property.

    "Restrictions on the initial size of mortgages may be introduced by the Financial Services Authority (FSA)." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7950278.stm This would be brilliant. It would restore my confidence in the markets future decline.

    House prices are definetly decreasing, I can show you many many properties on propertybee that have decreased (2 bed flats). So bearing in mind that house prices are decreasing, why do people say this is a good time to buy? If house prices were increasing it would be a good time to buy. But the trend is down, with no sign of slowing. Why do people say this is a good time to buy? Am I over simplifying the issues?

    Don't know that facts and figures, but there's been a big increase in 2 beds for sales, all going on today and the 6th March. Supply starting to increase, lets see what happens to demand.

    That's 'under offer' now (according to Boyd EA).

    Another amusing notion is the -"WOULD CONSIDER EXCHANGE". As if the invention of currency was a stupid idea. This guy's also selling octagon shaped wheels, he's not impressed with the circular ones.

    There's a lot of properties in the east of Edinburgh that have been on the market for 6 months, most have come down in price by at least 3%, but I've noticed that the majority of these don't have a schedule or photos. Not one single photo, no room sizes. feck all rally. Is this a new tactic? So that I have to ring the EA to arrange a viewing? Or at least ring them to get the size of the livingroom (my personal bench mark)? Then they at least have a chance to sell it to me..... "this property will be snapped up soon".... I'd like that so i coulod ask what's changesed so dramitically over the last 6 months (a part from the rapid economic decline). I've also noticed a coupe of properties saying "NEW REDUCED FIXED PRICE", which, according to propertybee, should be "WAS OFFERS OVER ,BUT NO ONE'S INTERESTED SO WE'LL TRY AN OPTIMISTIC FIXED PRICE". I'd like to ask the EA was the previous FP was so see if they come clean, make one up, or say it's confidential. I hate them all. I've been looking at properties in Glasgow, fantasisiing about the kind of property you can get there, the only problems is, it's in Glasgow.

    Propertybee rocks!!! How did I survive without it. Found a few properties that have fallen £20K (150K-130K). And a good number that have come down 10K - 5K. This one is amusing- It's been on the market for over 2 months, so to entice buyers they've knocked off £50 (fifty pounds). Ha Ha.... £140,000 is now £139,950. That pricing tactic might work on a packet of Rolo's but not on a large investment. That price cut was today (sunday) so the viewing today will be rammed, hope they have some bread baking in the oven or whatever lame tricks they think people will fall for. http://www.espc.com/Buying/271496.html

    Anyone seen any houses that have come down in price?

    They probably are covering it up. Halifax and another bank (can't remember which) have done something similar, they've said they are going to stop predicting house prices. I think it's disgusting they were happy to fuel the price rises with their predictions, and now they won't fuel the fall by the negative predictions. It shows they weren't predicting the rise for any purpose other then to boost the market. Pretty scummy if you ask me.

    I'm concerned about the possiblity of a drought. I'm just disliking the quietness of ESPC recently, but hopefully it's a sign of people buckling down for the winter. Is is just me? Or does anyone else think this is one of the quiest periods in years?

    This massive lack of new properties on is ESPC is obviously a sign of the times, but it's a bit unsettling too. I'd rather have the market flooded with properties that aren't selling, to push up supply. I realise it's also seasonal, but I don't remember this drought last year (or year previous for that matter). I suppose I'm just concerned a drought of properties in Edinburgh will only serve to slow the price crash. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

    I lived next to the meadows for 2 years and was never assaulted. I now live near St. Andrews Sq. 3 months ago I was assaulted on George St. Good times. It's just bad luck. Unless you're involved in a life of crime, in which case 'you live by the sword, you die by the sword'. (Big Brother's 'Nasty Nick' ruined that phrase for me.)

    I think your best bet it pick areas that you like and can afford. Then contact the local police stations to get accurate information on the number and types of crime being committed in the area. Thus avoiding peoples emotional accounts. 1 assault in the meadows every 3 months might make the news through political reasons, whereas there might be areas that have had more than that, but don't really get the journalistic juices flowing. There's more assaults on Princes Street than the Meadows, so you've been warned, never visit Princes Street.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7712202.stm "Hefty cuts in interestes rates predicted" Good to see us savers being punished, while the people hell bent on making money out of property get their balls sucked.
