Maidstone Market Is Dead


Recommended Posts

Ooops

Finger trouble

Jan-Mar 2012

Flats Terraced Semi Detached

(0 sales) (6 sales) (4 sales) (4 sales)

£0 £184,333 £117,500 £310,000

Anyway very little moving in Maidstone so far this year. Completely messes up usual proportions between house types when there are so few sales.

But I note that the flat line didn't. (sorry for that)

So much for all the hype.

I live near Maidstone and I agree that the market is dead. My neighbour is selling his terraced house. Bought it in 2007 for 150K and is on market for 135K but no takers. He said he might have to reduce price further.

Over the last six months we have made about five offers on different places of £135,000 (two up two down Maidstone West) and been flatly turned down. And been

cruelly mocked by estate agents into the bargain!

Two houses no longer on market, but rest sold at asking price.

Since February I see the same 50 terrace houses under £140,000 that missed the gravy train on rightmove. Every so often

undergoing a little sporadic painful correction, but still there.

I am spending £50 a week on petrol commuting to Maidstone, but reckon that's less than the downward drift in house prices in our range.

Not sure where to put this, but thought it might be of some interest to Maidstone watchers.

I've never been to Maidstone and don't know anything about this site, other than having read the ebay listing.

Edit update: Streetview of what I presume is the access part to the plot.
