  1. Here’s a ‘Rent to Buy’ House listed ‘For Sale’ on Rightmove... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-71874938.html It’s a really great deal, I’m sure you’ll agree... HOW IT WORKS. You pay £230 per week rent on this house. Every month £300 of your monthly rent goes towards buying you the house. Total purchase price is £180 000. Upfront payment £5000. Pay the balance anytime up to 60months and the house is all yours. Is this allowed on Rightmove? They don’t seem to make the reporting process very easy.
  2. Just as i see the chancellor ganging up on me by removing my income pension tax relief i see this grrr bad day. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/news/house-price-index/ Apparently it is the biggest rise for 3 years in the quiet month of october. Now I know we all got very excited when it fell last month so fairs fair we treat this result in the same where as we are all balanced
  3. Please feel free to delete this topic if it has been already posted, but I wasn't able to find anything similar. At the same time... I cannot sleep due to the "horrendous" effects that this increase in estate agents fees will have on the world economy... CLEARLY unsustainable, as the same article says: But even if you disregard them as the grousing of a handful of agents, it’s hard to imagine Rightmove can continue to raise rates indefinitely. I love the next sentence of the article. They are going to milk the existing members (agents) Enjoy. https://aimgroup.com/2017/09/08/agents-react-rightmove-price-hike/ PS: Well, back to sleep... but I first I have to put the champagne bottle back inside the fridge.
  4. Something new and maybe worthy of discussion. Rightmove have sent an email (on behalf of an EA) offering a 'free' valuation. I guess this is the virtual equivalent of shoving a card through the door, but it's not something I've had before. It seems to show that Rightmove are touting a new service to EAs (probably using some management manglespeak about targeted analytics) and EAs are taking them up on it. I'm not particularly happy about them making my details available to 3rd parties. Is it something significant do we think, or just an indication that desperate EAs are grabbing at straws in the wind?
  5. EAs must be feeling the game is close to up now with mentalist asking prices and volumes in the gutter. There is a feature on Rightmove 'send to friend' where you can email a property listing to a friend and leave a comment. Supposedly for the plebs to write "Look at this one darling, I've fallen in love with it!" My assumption is that the listing EA gets a copy of this message as a gauge of interest in the property and awaits the contact from the overly interested customer to ream appropriately. I've been emailing choice listings to a made up email address with some well chosen words regarding the asking price: "The Fat Fingered EA typed another 2 infront of the price here! Idiot." "Increased by £30k yesterday, reduced £30k today and now showing as reduced. EA outright lying. Desperation is palpable." "This Agent is going hungry again this month. Price to sell, idiot" This approach is designed to hit the EA personally whilst they think they are getting a sneak insight to the conversations of potential buyers. My choice of insult at the moment is idiot but this is likely to change. Every little helps, get messaging people!
  6. A cursory glance on RM today seems to show a huge increase in the number of houses recently listed for sale. But I should like to measure this phenomenon more objectively before I start dancing for joy because if everyone realizes that now is the time to sell, we are on the way down. Is there a site that enables one to filter listings by number of days on market etc? I know RM and Zoopla will show me listings in last 30 days etc; I want to see how many are more than 30 /60/90 on the market.
  7. Telegraph piece attacking EA's new website as 'anti-homeowner'. I don't really see how it's really an issue if the market is booming. However if the market were falling...... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/constructionandproperty/11317894/Why-selling-your-home-in-2015-is-about-to-become-a-real-headache.html Edit, duplicate post, Mods please delete!
  8. Nice headline for rightmove survey: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/news/articles/property-news/largest-ever-monthly-drop-in-asking-prices-but-2015-rise-still-forecast
  9. I don't know how it is in your areas, but every few weeks I click on Rightmove sold house prices for my area (E8, E9 and E5), and bar a few sales am not really seeing much actually appearing near the crazy asking prices published? Of course there is a delay of a few months, but still.... For example, note this house with north facing garden for £1.5million: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32141598.html Yet the highest sale I can find for the street is £1,015,000. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices/detail.html?country=england&locationIdentifier=OUTCODE%5E762&searchLocation=E8&referrer=listChangeCriteria&index=25 I was told by an agent that something in the street went for over 1.2million, but wonder if these sales will be stopped by surveyor valuations as had heard from one agent that surveyors have been told to "calm it down"?! Curious to know if this is the picture across London, and generally how many months out is the land registry sold prices index? Also, I can imagine in EA offices they must be panicking now to close the sales at the bubble prices. There have certainly been a few properties return to market. I just hope more of these sales at the silly prices fall through and sellers get a bit more real about what they can ask. Even if you add on 20% to 2013 sold prices, you don't quite get to the current asking prices for most property (specifically houses, not flats).
  10. First true sign of HPC. London asking prices drop 5.9% in a month! http://www.rightmove.co.uk/news/files/2014/08/august-2014.pdf
  11. any thoughts on tomorrows rightmove figures? hoping for some nice mmr fall out
