Following on from the "can I live in a garage" thread, how about this instead.

"The Dovecote was beautifully converted some 10 years ago and offers a potential purchaser a fairly unique opportunity, ideal for a professional couple or indeed someone downsizing."

Yours for £225,000, cheep if you ask me.

Looking at photos, does `downsizing' mean `shrinking' ?

Wasnt that long ago you could buy a 4 bed detached place in Sawston for under £150k. Parents were looking there around 2000/01 IIRC.

It seems about the going asking price around Cambridge nowadays. It's only under £250k because it's a bit too far out from Cambridge itself to cycle or commute easily. If it was under £200k it would be pushing into 1-bed territory and you can't have that now, can you?

And I'm not an EA, I'm just resigned to the fact that this seems to be where the market is around here.

As soon as I read "some 10 years ago" I thought, the owners didn't convert it and don't know when it was converted but would like to get their money back.

I'm not buying! I'm waiting for prices to fall but it's not happening around here yet. A few £5 or £10k drops but nothing significant.

Maybe you could have a word with everyone else in the area and get them to stop buying. :(

The prices in sawston are my main reason for believing this can't go on. That one bed house in a not very nice area is six-seven times the median salary according to this:

I love the simple implication - boomers can downsize to this easily, but anyone under the age of 35 will have to have to above average reliable incomes to be able to stretch to the mortgage

But it is a 1 bed (if you look at the pictures the second bed is on the landing)

Buying with cash is fine, buying with a loan from a bank who seem to go insolvent and ask to be bailed out

is another thing. (RBS, LLoyds, HBOS, Northern Rock etc)
