Slash Slash Slash Goes The Price

Recommended Posts

I am amazed, looking this morning at the amount of "no onward chain" properties appearing on the market. Must be amateur BTL's selling up.

I think an exodus seems to be taking shape:

i completely agree

i think we are just over the tipping point and its gonna be now, not next year not in 2008 but its happening right now.

and even nationwide and halifax wont be able to spin this one out any longer

Number of households with residents fylde 32369

Number of households with residents blackpool 63940

total households in the fylde lets add in empty hosues too so lets say 100k residential homes in the fylde

300 houses repossese last 3 months ie 1200 yoy

that means 1.2% of all houses repossesed in a yoy and growing

say 20% council owned and 20% btl(lot of renting here)

you are talking the average owned property here 2% being repossesed each year

THATS BASICALLY 1 HOUSE EVERY YEAR IN EACH STREET

crash mode has arrived

Probably just reflecting the current Reigate market - a local estate agent says that normally January is really buzzing - but not this year...

That house was probably priced about the same as similar Reigate properties,.

From our watching brief over the Reigate market, we've noticed that even reducing some by 20% hasn't shiftd them!

That is because, despite the EA spending good money on newspaper adverts, property details, floor plan, website listings etc etc etc - they got NO viewings.

So, two weeks on, vendor says 'no fecking viewings then?'

EA back-pedals ... er ..... er .... er ...... er ....... not so many people looking at this time of the year .... if we drop below 200k it will reach a different segment of the market.

W@nker, w@nkers, w@nkers, w@nkers ... every last one of them.

Property price should be about 90k.

Woohoo!!!

Let's get all excited, 1 property that wasn't priced to sell has been reduced.....

Crack open the champers....

:lol::lol::lol:

Once upon a time there was a lovely, rising property market. People could ring up their friendly and helpful estate agent and they would price their property just above the going rate. All the lucky buyers would queue up to see the lovely new property and take it turns to wander around and admire its beauty.

One of the buyers was sure to fall in love with the lovely property and pledge to borrow as much as they could, and a little bit more, so they could buy the beautiful property and make it their very own home. And, if the property was a teensy-weensy bit expensive, the buyers knew that very, very soon the property would be worth even more than they paid for it and everything would be just as tickety-boo as it is possible to be.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Fairy tale is over. The bears are back home.

When you see a property of that size with an asking price of that price only a fool, IMPO, cannot see that we are in a huge housing bubble.

Five or six years ago, even less, a house of that size in my part of the World would have gone for about 35 to 40K - 45K absolute tops. Now, they are on the market for 200K.

Out of interest, the house sold on 21/07/2000 for £108,000.

I would estimate the true value of the house to be around £110,000 - £130,000 if we were not in a bubble.

Reigate is quite a nice place (for the South East), with good transport links and easy travel into London.

I am still amazed by the amount of "no chain" properties I am seeing. If this continues, it will only be a few weeks/months before the BTL brigade are all at it the papers pick up on the bail out.
