House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

Hiya i' m new to the forum and i was wondering if anyone could tell me if Low Fell is a safe area to live in. I m interested in buying a flat or a small house hopefully close to bus links as i work in Newcastle city centre and i dont drive. Cheers

Can't name any streets in particular but yeah it's probably one of the best places in Gateshead to live in. Sunday nights are a bit rowdy (all the chavs come out from surrounding areas) but I think it's definitely worth a look.

Experience? My ex lives there.

Thanks for the replies. Can i ask why you think now is not a good time to buy, do you reckon the prices will fall?

In my opinion, yes, but this is HPC.co.uk. I walk the dog through Low fell and saw some of those horrible flats Jan Forster is marketing behind the Co-op. They are "from" £135k. Who are they kidding? that back street must be infested with drunken chavs most nights.

But hey, it's your choice in the end

Firstly, I wouldn't be in any hurrry to buy a property any time soon. On the other hand the northern half of Low Fell is one of my intended places when I finally buy a house. Having lived in Jesmond, and knowing Gateshead quite well, I honestly think that there is not too much difference between the Saltwell Park end of Low Fell and Jesmond, except of course that Jesmond is twice or even three times the price! Yes, I would prefer Jesmond but not at the price differencial: Low Fell is much better value for money. It is even walkable to Northumberland Street, though it takes the better part of an hour. Still the exercise is good for you!

The best course of action for now is to save as much as you can, so that you have a decent deposit at hand when the time comes to buy. :rolleyes:

Good Luck,

Durham Lad
