Can this really go on much longer?

CB1 total property sales in month of March :

Year 2000 - 34

2001 - 36

2002 - 43

2003 - 26

2004 - 35

2005 - 32

2006 - 31

2007 - 24

2008 - 13

2009 - 16

2010 - 10

2011 - 7

Seven?! That's less than a property per EA for the better part of Cambridge for a whole month.

N1 total property sales in month of March :

2000 - 126

Do you think there's a delay in reporting numbers? Very curious as I'm in islington, my impression from rightmove via property bee is that despite the crazy prices, stuff is selling. But always hard to tell.

If these numbers come from Rightmove (as I assume they are) then there is indeed a delay in reporting. Essentially Rightmove gets these numbers from the Land registry, so numbers on sales come in over a number of months. So the most recent months will typically increase by a factor of 2 to 3 (if I remember correctly). As a result these numbers appear pretty "normal" to me.

I posted this in the CAmbridge forum.

http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Cambridge/House-prices-up-by-30k-in-hot-spot-city-03052011.htm

Houses in Cambridge sell within six weeks, according to new research which puts the average price of a property in the city at £339,000.

That value is £98,000 higher than the surrounding sub-region and represents a rise of £30,000 in the space of a year, according to the quarterly housing market bulletin produced by Cambridgeshire Horizons.

and yet i see a lot more than 7 houses for sale in the CB1 postcode. :blink:

I'm a CB1 resident, although not a particularly glamorous bit of it, houses are still selling very quickly here.

One just down the road for me sold for £335k within days, this is higher than peak value and I see no drops here at all really.

On the other hand I was in Basingstoke at the weekend and there were seemingly loads of properties on the market and I can only see prices falling heavily.
