What Do You Want To Buy (crash/gsd/flat)?

Recommended Posts

Think it will be interesting (i hope :D ) to understand what properties people are looking at based on different scenarios, and perhaps what kind of place they are living in now.

Personally i'm looking for a smallish terrace in zone 2/3 London, so:

Big crash (30% ~), looking at small terrace in a decent(ish) area close to green spaces e.g:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-495...pa_n=2&tr_t=buy

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-495...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy

GSD (10-15%) small terrace in a less nice area !

Flat (0%-rpi) terrace that needs work :D

Similar place to where I live now:

Interesting topic, it's the first time in ages I've searched through properties with any real interest or thought about whether I'd actually like to live there..

This is is the sort of place I'd go for with 30% falls:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-815...pa_n=2&tr_t=buy

Detached, set back from the road with plenty of trees/bushes to give some privacy.

Bit much for a single person but they don't do many 2 bed detached places (I've seen some but they're usually one-offs, the result of some kind of conversion).

Right sort of area as well (S20).

Also in this area is this 2 bed bungalow (with swimming pool!)

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-768...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy

With only 10-15% falls in prospect, I'd probably just keep on saving and aim to buy somewhere similar after a couple more years.

nice pool!

This one stuck in my memory from a previous search because it's almost unheard of for a Sheffield property to have a pool in the price range I search in.

Talk about one-upmanship!

I'm purposely not looking at the mo, but I would be happy with a traditional 3 bed semi in a reasonable area with enough room to raise our two sprogs. I could get one now, and in reality in this area, for around 15% less than this time last year (had a sneaky peek in a local EA recently and we were pleasantly surprised) - but we are going to wait a bit longer yet :P

"What Do You Want To Buy (crash/gsd/flat)?"

When I've rented previously, I've only been in studio flats - but when it comes to buying I'd be looking for something considerably bigger - something I'd be happy to live in for the next 10+ years at least.

I'd probably be looking for a 2 or 3-bed in these circumstances. I know the sort of areas I want to live in - here's one that looks very appealing to me :-

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-647...a_n=52&tr_t=buy

At that price I could not afford that today full stop. But about 4 years ago this sort of thing would have gone for about 80K and I would have been able to afford it easily. Looking further down the market :-

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-577...a_n=72&tr_t=buy

this property is a little unusual (in a nice way) and it's in a nice village too. But at that price it's still slightly too expensive at 3.5x, as is the one below which is even cheaper, and looks fantastic inside

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-931...a_n=75&tr_t=buy

but the area is not so good.

Here is something that I could probably afford :-

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-910...a_n=81&tr_t=buy

But it's too small IMHO for a buy. I haven't worked for years and years, got a professional degree, professional IT qualificiations and saved up a big deposit just to buy THAT.

So this is why I want a crash.

Me, I'm getting tired of my 4 bedroom house with seperate guest house + pool & sea view.

I'm looking for a 5-6 bedroom house with a guest house and a pool and a tennis court and at least a 4 car garage. I am happy to give up the sea view.

a 9 bed log cabin on top of a big mountain looking down on some shitty little 4 bed chav house by the sea with a pool :lol:

With nearly 4000 posts to your name, I imagine the only "view" your getting regularly is that of your PC... :lol:

What would I buy with big price falls?

Something like this!

I would skip any flat/terrace! Although I would be happy with a Semi!

A pool would be good too..!

Looking for a nice 2-3 bedroom semi with non-overlooked garden, 3 would be preferable.

When I can get a house with a mortgage at 2.5 times my wage then I will consider buying.
