Some Price Drop

Recommended Posts

just found this on right move - now living in Herefordshire -

it was obviously overpriced to start (and is still overpriced) and being Grade 11 * listed would not help a sale but the smelling of the coffee is strong :o

I don't see any price drop in the propertybee history... am I doing sommat wrong?

PB no longer works on individual property pages.

You have to look at the history on a "list" page.

And it doesn't look overpriced to me. It's well within the price range of similar in the area.

£400,000, or nearly *half a million pounds* for a house doesn't look overpriced?

That's at least 15x local income.

Eh? It works perfectly fine for me. I think there's something wrong with your setup.

I've noticed lots of biggish rural houses appearing for sale (South Herefordshire). The comment about local wages is very relevant. With Local Authority jobs under threat there aren't many organisations round here with the salaries to take on these houses. In the past 10 years there would have been some Escape to the Country types to sell their house somewhere else and move to a relaxed idyllic lifestyle in the country but they must be getting scarcer. Add to that:

- the cost of heating oil (there's often no mains gas in some of these places and they take a lot of heating - you can't put pVC double glazing in. You also risk getting your £700 worth of heating oil nicked from the tank in the garden while you're out.

- the cost of getting anywhere to work, shop, visit, take the kids etc

-vulnerability of small village schools, shops and pubs

and what looks on the surface like a good buy could become a liability unless you really have a reason to live there.

It's a six bedroom period building.

It is not local worker fodder.

Property Bee broke on individual pages as per the thread about 6 months ago (which I can't find because I see that the broken search on this site still isn't fixed) and as far as I can see, still is.

There have been no reports of a fix that I should download.

Property Bee working fine for me on individual pages. Just checked the one above and can see all the changes listed.

Have you tried reinstalling the plugin?

Er, I actually cut and pasted the proof that it is not broken. :rolleyes: See above.

No, I was waiting for someone to come along and announce that a fix was available.

We had such a long thread about it when it broke I was expecting this.

It is hardly reasonable for me to re-install the plug-in every week, just in case

No you didn't.

I can obtain the exact same information on a "list" page, and you didn't attach anything that proves it came from an "individual" page.

(I'm not suggesting that you are lying, only that I might not have made the point about what is broken clear enough)
