Now That's What I Call A Drop

Recommended Posts


I guess it depends what they did inside the property between the purchases, could have had a fire or been utterly trashed, or lots of water damage.

But all else being equal that's one heck of a correction.

The BROCHURE certainly doesn't allude to any damage

I live in the north - but i am puzzled why prices haven't dropped further.... quicker....

Too many safety nets.

1. Stupid low interest rates helping people pay their mortgage.

2. Banks being gentle on you when you do get behind.

3. SMI payments to bail you out if you have no money.

It takes quite some deft skill to get repossessed these days.

Still,it's just a flat up north, and no internal pix I see.


Crikey that wouldn't even buy you a wheelie-bin space in some places.

It says self contained flat, this means one of those 'flats' I lived in near Haringhey a long time ago now.

I.e they get a big house with big rooms and cut each room into 3 or 4 flats. Rooms are big enough to put a single narrow bed and a dresser. You then have a toilet/kitchen/shower combo room. Mine made Hong Kong flats look big. It had a toilet with a shower above the water cistern. Behind the door was a roller shutter which housed the 'kitchen' which was a twin electric hob and a sink which ran into the wet room floor.
