August Land Registry Data Updated

Recommended Posts

I just thought I'd mention that the Land Registry data has been updated. This means that when you're looking online at prices houses sold for, sales for August 2009 are now available online.

Now, a lot of you might use nethouseprices, or even rightmove, but I use houseprices.co.uk and the reason is because there's a handy Firefox plugin that I can use that generates an extra link beside each one - and by clicking on it, it instantly shows me all previous sales of that house and calculates the +/1 profit/loss and colours it in green/red.

So, if I load up any address then in just a click I can instantly see all the profits/losses.

See here: http://www.houseprices.co.uk/e.php?q=w1&n=100

I can instantly tell you that item 4 (Flat 27, Claremont Road) made a 3.8% loss selling at £650k in 2007 and £625k in August

The plugins you need are grease monkey and property chimp. See here to see what they look like and where to get them: http://hubpages.com/hub/Homes-For-Sale-Websites-And-Tools-UK

I couldn't be without this nifty plugin because it's easy to use and quick.

Indeed, I get updates from houseprices and got some on the 1 Oct. Most property sells at 2004 prices with occasional idiot paying 2007 price. It seems that a lot of spring/summer sales have not gone through or the chains are held up. One flat I saw in Jan, that sold straight away, the completion took place in mid July!!

I was a little (but not hugely) surprised to see the headline "Property prices return to 2008 levels" after the NW released their very dubious figures this week. However, if you look at the LR figures (which are the most reliable):

Monthly Change (%)

-1.2 (August 2008)

-1.9

-1.6

-2.4

-3.0

-1.5

-1.7

-1.6

-0.7

-0.8

0.1

1.0

0.7

You will see that, in the area I am looking (Hampshire), only 3 of the last 12 months have recorded an increase - and that is only 1.8%. If you subtract that from the previous 9 months' losses, there is still a huge difference between August 2008 and August 2009.

Or maybe I am missing something here, in which case can someone please enlighten me?
