That almost looks reasonable for a 3/4 bed house in Windsor.

Are you sure it's not an error, can't see why they'd reduce nearly 30% in 1 month

Would the drop not bring the price below inheritance tax limits? So they have saved IT% and will probably get a quicker sale.

Just a thought as I have no idea how this tax works.

Thx Fred for the reality check.

I had difficulty with those cooing over the 'reasonableness' of the price.

The link to RM showed me a failry unloveable townhouse, and they

were asking a quarter of a million - which in my mind is about 150K too much.

I live not far from Windsor and it has to be one of the most

overpriced and overrated sh1tholes in this part of the world

Slough with royals.

Well spotted!

And thousands of houses/flats in this position around the country - growing by the month (esp Winter months)

Executors will start selling at any price!

Solicitors must be getting very twitchy about their stalled fees too!

Is it me or that a silly price. I would not pay over £100K for that - it looks shyte! :o

I agree, I looked around one of those about 2 years ago, it was on for 175k in Essex, and although "it would do" as a place to crash your head, it was totally uninspiring in every sense. We can't all have mansions of course, but the garage takes up all the ground floor and although it appears to have everything, it manages to botch everything up in the process.

I used to own a 3 storey house and I like the idea, but this style is erm without style at all.

Fine to rent but to aspire to own over 25 years? At these prices?

My hunt would go on I think.

Well, I'm glad to read that other areas of the south east are starting to see this kind of fall in asking prices - I was beginning to think I was the only one. Tunbridge Wells has been falling rapidly in the last six months -20% is not uncommon.

My question is: how much further and for how much longer?

£325k for a flat - are you people down south insane ????

I live about as far south as it's possible to get without getting wet or being Cornish. There are a few new developments within a mile of me that are mainly 2 bed boxes. In the street behind they start at £315K and just down the road they're now asking £290K (was £325K a year ago). Unsurprisingly there aren't many takers any more. So to answer your question, us people down south arn't insane (as we're not buying) although some developers think we still are!

Glad you raised it though as I find myself saying to EAs "... but it's a FLAT! ... I'm not paying £XXXk for a FLAT no matter how great you say it is .. etc etc". I was beginning to think it was me that needed the reality check.

STR.

Slough with royals?

Don't think so. Windsor is on the whole a charming town - apart from a fecking great castle and some royals. Slough is as John Betjeman described.
