Just thought I'd post this one - it's been for sale probably the longest of anything on my local search.

not a huge drop but it might not even sell this time!

There are a handful of repos selling at the lower end of the market in my area.

491 properties for sale found incl SSTC

454 properties for sale found not incl.

I viewed a property yesterday that's been for sale since March 2008. It's a new build and they tried to sell it for all this time without it being built, house has now been completed but it's still the same price as it was in march 2008. It's in an excellent location for us, hence me reluctantly viewing it but the garden was tiny although the house itself was beautifully finished, but then it should be, it's 475K.

When I told the agent it had too small a garden he replied with " it's a real problem these days with new builds, the councils are insisting that builders cram as many properties as possible into a plot because of the severe housing shortages"

My response of "well how come his plans to build 12 houses on this plot were rejected, in favour of only 4" were met with a blank stare.

I also asked about the price. The other three properties in the development were sold at the end of 2007 for 525K but are larger properties, one sold only a few months ago again for 413K.. I played a little dumb and asked about the possibility of a mortgage valuation coming in too low as the house across had sold for 413K, he said it wasn't a problem as it had only gone cheap because it was a relocation company that had sold it so a mortgage valuer wouldn't take this into account. :blink:

We also offered on another property back in February that's been on for 3 years, again no price drop, just a price increase then a drop to what it had originally been on for, offered 12% under asking. Not interested, they rang me only three days ago to let me know that another higher offer was in and would we like to match it. :lol:
