No troll. Just hardly ever post. Happens to be one in an area I watch closely. I notice the price  has jumped 50k overnight. Presumably because the seller thinks 500k is on the cards since the budget!

Conversation that follows! 

Haha you estates agents will try anything???

Absolutely, this is a fantastic opportunity for a first time buyers to save over 10,000 – how’s your search coming along by the way, would you be interested in viewing any of the below properties?

 

Kind regards,

In my opinion this is a fantastic opportunity for first time buyers to enter the biggest debt trap this country will have ever seen. I follow the stock & housing market very closely and the only way I can see for property is to continue in a downward trend. For example the Lombard Wharf developer Barratts invited me for a viewing which I attended and they were very much working the “get in quick these are selling fast” strategy. At the time a 1 bed was 721k.  They are now  sending me offers of a 1 bed for 540k including stamp duty. Is that the sort of fantastic opportunity you are referring to? 

 
I will be a buying a property but not this year. 
 
However if you have the time to spare I would very much value your personal long term view of the housing market. 
 
Kind Regards,
 

Thank you for your email.

 

Quite an interesting take you have on current affairs. As you are aware it’s mostly London that is underperforming, especially the top end of the market. 

 

Entering into the biggest debt of your life is also a positive, you are actually paying toward a future asset rather than paying off someone else’s debt. There is always to side to the argument, I would rather pay my debt than someone’s with my money!

 

Prices might drop further or they might bounce back – none of us has a crystal ball that tells the future – we would be very rich men indeed. It is a very good time to buy if you can afford, however, humans are more afraid of loss than concerned with gain and always feel like they get the worst deal possible.

 Once you are back on the market and want to buy, I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you with your search.

 

Best wishes,

Don’t allow yourself tunnel vision to the point you instantly assume anyone who may say something that is not in line with your thinking is a troll or you will never be able to see the wood from the trees. I’ve learnt a lot from reading this forum.

All the best

Maybe dipping the price and raising it again is simply a way of making it appear on searches for reduced price property.

Possibly! My thinking was the seller was happy with offers below 500k but after the budget thought they would bump the price up in the hope he can get some sucker to pay 500k on the nose.

They dropped it and put it up again same day. Either they dropped it, read the budget, and put it back up, or they are mucking about.

this is why the housing "market" is all smoke and mirrors, people casually chucking around fifty thousand pounds sterling like it aint no thang, seller probably sneaks a carrier bag through the self scan at sainsburys and feels smug about saving five pence. everyone is a financial guru when it comes to selling a multi hundred thousand pound house, when in reality most people have never haggled on a pair of shoes.

Viewing from outside the box......watching the forthcoming implosion?......all for free will as long as decisions/actions are made fully accountable, risk it for a biscuit, no blaming others for own free will choice of actions......make your bed you lie in it.;)
