House Price Crash Forum

West Dorset


Recommended Posts

I've been keeping tabs on the Bridport and Beaminster area through Rightmove, because it is on our list of places to possibly retire to in a couple of years time. What I notice is that properties are not selling at all. According to Rightmove no house sales have been registered at the Land Registry since spring 2008. Some houses seem to have come down 25% in price without shifting. Others still look as if they're being offered at peak of the market valuations.

I'm guessing that what is on the market is mostly second homes, with owners who think they can wait until the market recovers. So what will happen? Will prices crash in the area, or will the market recover? And how far should prices fall from their peak?

I'd like people's opinions.
