Insight Into Peoples Opinion Of The Market


Recommended Posts

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.

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:
