£250K Discount Day

Recommended Posts

NN1 + 20 miles, last 24 hours. Lots of drops. A few sales falling through. I've notice in Northants places that have gone off the market ( aparently having SSTC ) are now appearing again with different agents. I've even seen one ( what looks like a repo ) not sell all year and now has been relisted with a different agent at £25K less, get your dicounted repos 'ere.

I do wish I had bought in April, I'd love to have a lifetime of debt and a financial weight round my neck dragging me further and further into a pit of despair.

Anyways, I digress....£250K drops today....

£250k is more than we would spend on a whole house!

Don't get much for £250k down here in East Kent (Canterbury/Thanet area) where most people I know seem to be on minimum wage!!

Crazy how someone buys a place in 2012 for £215k then 2 years later decides to market it for £255k! Makes me sick. :mellow:

Even worse where I am, someone brought a new build for £350k 6 months later back on the market for £450k. I don't know why I bother going to work when I can make 3times my wage house sitting for 6 months.

You go to work to maintain the illusion that we have a functioning economy!

These days people go to work so that

1. Their landlords can afford to buy.

2. Their bosses can afford to buy - often it's only their bosses' bosses.

Haha! I know we lived in Dover from 2006 to 2012, partly because we couldn't afford to live in the shit hole they call Thanet ehich now you couldn't pay me to live in.

Martin, St.Margrates bay and the outskits of Deal are nice - we rented in Martin after selling our shitty Dover terrace back in 2011.

- Sandwich should be cheap now Phiszers has closed, if I remmber rightly there was a nice estate of detached homes nearby.

- Canterbury is at a premium because ponsey people live there and studnets rent there.

- Outskirts of Folkestone are ok, capel-le-fog :-) etc. Stay well clear of the center tho.

I spend many a year Dj'ing so I got to see many villages and towns each wekend. There are some lovely places in Kent outside of the major towns. If I were still tied to my old job in Dover I would be looking to buy in Whitfield, Temple Ewell (nr the train station), Martin (nr train station), Lydden, Shepardswell , Alylesham alought a big council estate it's not bad as it's a village.

I would still keep well clear of Thanet, it's manic and full of ex londoners, who drive like tossers on speed. Driving around near westwood cross is pure hell - well not quite so bad now that the new road is in, but that roundabout and the traffic jam from ASDA!

Broadstairs is ok, lived in a bedsit there prior to 2006, only problem is it's a long long way to escape back onto the A28 and usually the traffic is horrendus.

Thats why I wouldn't get too excited about it......not statistically relevant

I'd say the opposite. When houses are dropping more than an above average man can save in a lifetime then this is significant. These places will only sell to London property winners. ..those are probably quite rare now.
