If you are referring to the increase in price on day followed by an reduction the next day to the old price.....very common trick to make the house show up in alert-emails due to the changed price.

*) Sold STC means very little in these advertisements. The amount of houses appearing as new already being SSTC tells enough. B)

Yes, I see loads which come on the market and go SSTC.

My favourite was a house owned by a couple who wanted 250K, then 150K, more than they paid for it in 2007. Had it on for over a year with no interest and a few days after I spoke to them about looking for property in the area they had SSTC up on it - I mean, in the week since I spoke to them they magically had found a buyer who had made an offer on a house which had had no viewings for a year and is way over-priced. Classic.

Missing the £324 500 to £359 950 between the 27th August and the 25th July I think.

What I find even more bizarre is the reverse patern wich I have often observed.

When Sold STC reverts to Available the price goes UP!

I can only think the vendor is adding on the amount they were obliged to knock off in the haggle before the sale fell through.

Well that will work, NOT!!

This is bizarre pricing near me in Wombourne. House on the market for 8 months for £121,950. Then in May 2010, drop £2k off it. 4 months later, put the price UP by £4. :blink: Now £123k +.

Must be very nice decorating. Seemed a good price and ideal for me til you see the huge pylon that, although it's not in the back garden, it may as well be, it's that close.

It wouldn't bother me but the problem is you'd be stuck with it, it would put off a lot of buyers I expect.
