Land Registry Figures Again

Recommended Posts

Guest rigsby II

I think nethouseprices and the rest are great for checking prices, but I'm having serious doubts about their accuracy with regard to sales being logged in the database - especially new build - they don't seem to appear on the radar.

I've been sort-of-looking in Lincolnshire for a house for the last 4/5 months and when I've been out there, there are loads of for-sale signs but hardly any sold signs at all.

This I have seen with my own eyes, so I know/assume it's as dead as a dodo. Same old houses up for months and sometimes years at stubborn prices. The estate agents are still putting on a brave face - they can hardly do anything else though....

But can it really be as bad as this ?

2005 - 1 sold (so far in the year to be fair)

2004 - 13 sold

2003 - 9 sold

2002 - 26 sold

2001 - 16 sold

2000 - 8 sold

True reflection of dried up sales or duff info in the registry ? If it's true they are off the edge of a cliff and into the abyss...

Try cross referencing with some of the other sights.

But I know what you mean. Central Leeds - LS1 & LS2 appear to be selling hardly any flats compared with 100s last year. I think perhaps with new builds there are a lot of off-plan sales which will not show up until completion (perhaps).

Not that I want one of the crappy places in central Leeds, just interested in what people are being duped into buying.

You may actually have quite a few late updates to the data so it may not reflect entirely all sales. But, yes, turnover is bad. It seemed to have picked up from April - July, but I think it's tanking again (in my locality anyway). Having spoken about it to my gilrfriend, even she reckon prices have dropped on average £10k here (N Yorks).

The back end of the year is reputed to be the weakest part of it, so the next few months are going to be interesting.

The property we are renting is a new build,the landlord bought in June 2004.I was able to access the figures from nethouseprices when that site was first mentioned on HPC.Now the figures are no longer there!

I don't think that site can be considered accurate for comparing YOY sales for particular areas.

What about Rightmove?

Another source of LR data is UpMyStreet. I searched under LN13 9xx, all properties, and got the following result:

http://www.upmystreet.com/property/prices/all/l/LN13+9.html

The latest figure, for apr-jun will almost certainly be updated, but the jan-mar is also loww. But look back a few years to 2001, and 15 sales a quarter was quite normal. The boom certainly seems to be over in LN13 - don 't look too hard for a property just now, IMHO :)
