:rolleyes:

Dont know what these went for at peak. One was on the price comparator thingy for £180k asking in 2007.

We have received an offer of £106,000 on the above property.

Any interested parties must submit any higher offers in writing to the selling agent before an exchange of contracts takes place.

It's a repo?

Only 800 metres from Luton airport is why.

Yes, planes are very noisy here, but it is not the worst area as they are not directly overhead.

Ludlow avenue is much worse for planes. Huge posh houses there and planes 50ft above your head every couple of minutes. Nice.

This house is on a steep hill, poor area (even for luton) since Vauxhall plant closed, bad school catchment. It may not be in a busy road but it is just above/ overlooks Vauxhall Way which is a very busy buypass, or you may have a view over the derelict factoy / waste ground itself.

Yes, there seem to be a lot of repoed bungalows in Luton.

4 on the first two pages alone

This is 147 Devon Road, Luton.

NetHousePrices

19-Jan-2004 : £118,000

07-Sep-2001 : £75,000

So I do believe we're back to 2003 prices for this particular property.

And it's still over-priced.

True, im looking for 2000-2001 prices. If the area's not good and poor and its only really a starter home £106k still isnt cheap.

Just made me think because its so close to London and nearby st albans is so very expensive

£75,000.00 in 2001 is equivalent to £99,171.34 in 2011

In other words, £75,000.00 today can buy the same as £56,183.13 could in 2001

(Assuming a yearly inflation rate of 4% from 2006 onwards)

So still another £15,000 (at least) to be chopped off that bad boy (since house prices were already fraudulently inflated by then).

Has anyone mentioned that it's in Luton!?

Good game though. What's the best 3/4 bed detached anyone can find within a max 1 and a half hour commute to London for £250k or less? Garden would be nice....

PUBLIC NOTICE - We are acting for the mortgagees and have received an offer of £54,000 on the above property. Any interested parties must submit any higher offers in writing to the selling agent before an exchange on contracts takes place.

nice way to bully buyer into hurrying up and encourage gazumping and make it look like a public service. I heart EAs :ph34r:

The 25 miles to Central London is wrong.

Luton Airport to Staples Corner at the end of the M1 is 30 miles.

Staples Corner to Hyde Park Corner is another 6 miles.

36 miles of driving through the N/W London suburbs takes a fair bit of time.

Yes, a 2 bed shed perched on top of a mountain right next to an airport in a dream location like Luton really is evidence that prices are falling :lol::lol:

FFS!

That 2 bed shed 5 miles down the road in St albans would cost over £300k. If you can deal with the feral youths, muslamic extremists and dont have kids to send to the local terror training camp/school, its a steal.

Ive posted this one before. Station at nearby Wellingborough trains to London take as little as 45mins.

Not sure how far Birmingham is from London, probably less than 1 and a half hours

And a 'detached' house for £130k close to central oxford... very affordable indeed.

(actually a converted garage with a room on top)...

saw that...been for sale a couple of months now. People in Oxford are obviously more intelligent than those in Cambridge. Some moron in Cambridge would have snapped that up at twice that price by now.

What about this detached beuty for £50k in Reading http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32328722.html

Tbh, I think it is probably a better price and definitely a better place to live than the luton one and the oxford one.
