Insight Into Peoples Opinion Of The Market

Recommended Posts

Must admit I glanced at that and read it as 48k total price first off.. but 48k increase in 3 years, how much do houses sell for up there these days!? (to increase by 48k)

Cant sell my city centre apartment for love nor money, but I think that is the apartment market which is still in the early stages of recovery.

I'm in Sheff. On my street houses are shifting. Next door sold within 2 weeks. House opposite just went for £48k more than what it was bought for 3 years ago.

Had it been done up?

How do you know?

There are 3 houses on our street up, none have sold so far.

But as stated this is the early stages of recovery.

I know this is all old news, but it really does make a difference where you live and the type of house you're looking at.

I can show you a house sold for £275K last spring, just sold for £375k. Similar ones selling at £300-315K last year, now under offer at £400k.

Definitely a two-tier market.

They've done lots of work inside but on exterior it still looks like it needs more. Guy told me he'd been offered the asking price for it - just short of £200k

I'm in one of the area's where one of the posters is claiming houses are selling.

Perhaps we are on the wrong street in that area? :)

In the area I live houses will always sell, mainly to families with young children. Basically it's one of those school catchment area areas.

Yup - we moved from the 'hatched' (iffy zone) catchment for Chosen Hill School to core catchment in '99 - cos we're nasty middle classers with sharp elbows. Or responsible parents. Take your pick.

Our motivation was (no really it was) to ensure the lads got in this very good comp. The fact that it underpinned the house price was a bonus.

Frankly young singles, couples who move in catchments for investment reasons need to get out more. :blink:
