House Price Crash Forum

Why not raffle it with some charity to tug at the heartstrings?

Have they put the bowl of dried twigs, de-cluttered, adding specialist lighting to the photos?

Heaven forbid they try to reduce the price

I think I recall the great Venger giving a simple 3 point plan for these numpties:

Step 1:  Have you got a sale?

Step2: Reduce price by 10K

Step3: Go to step 1

Wait until it sinks in that house prices are falling month on month. No doubt quite a lot will hold on all the way into negative equity and continue to hold out for many years in the blind hope that things will return to 'normal'. Others won't and they will set the new market rate as shown by BBC news headline today, largest monthly fall in house prices for 11 years.

This is an excellent read.

Rightmove Detective on similar houses sold nearby "the most expensive house went for £185k and they'd made serious effort and had a massive plot"

Deluded Seller "[our house] was valued at 195, but we were advised to go on for 200, we cant go less than 195 as we wouldnt be able to afford our dream home."

Oh dear, oh dear. They might be lucky and get their "dream home" for 100k next year

...or 50k the year after ...

 I also think your estate agent is being too optimistic with their advert wording, "stunning frontage"...... really?

I agree with that comment ?

 we have had no viewings, but have had over 1000 views on rightmove according to our property report

Seems to lend support to the theory that the jump in Rightmove views are just bored people on furlough

It would be funny if he says... after I commented it to you guys... views skyrocketed by x10 and I haven’t sold the house yet... I don’t understand! I changed the pictures, the description and removed the bottle! ???

Yep, the House Buying, Renting & Selling section over at MSE is a joy to behold these days.

The hilarious thread linked by the OP is but one example. Check these out ...

Asking for a Reduction on House Price

Is now really a bad time to buy?

And of course: Nationwide -1.7% MoM for May. Should I renegotiate?

The local BTL-types are throwing a hissy fit, but deep down they know they're fighting a losing battle... :D

Exactly!  Keep the pressure with a realistic sentiment. BTL'ers have to keep things high for every sale.

We just need one panicking seller to set a precedent in an area - the rest will fall like dominoes

15 years ago, I used to be an estate agent. I got a lot of stick for that here (and elsewhere).

But I know this: If you've been on the market for two weeks with no viewings:

You are asking for too much money.

The master has en-suite, access to the over stair storage and built in wardrobes fitted into the walls taking no room off the floorspace of the master.

Are these people smoking crack?

Glossops basically a commuter town for Manchester now?

 

So once properties drop in Manc, simply put, there will be no, and I mean no, sales of these 'aspirational' recently built hutches at all in backwaters like Royston Vasey/Glossop. There will be no market for them. At all.

Andy the wonderseller is back with a brand new MSE thread!

Apparently, it's all the EA's fault that the house is getting no viewings.

Comedy gold, enjoy... :D

someone needs to join mse for entertainment purposes.

The 'stunning frontage' Glossop house has just dropped their price ... by £3,500 

https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-79804639.html

Glossop has the Peak District surrounding it (which is amazing) but the housing stock always looks like this place: dull and depressing.

If you had a big country house then maybe Glossop would be commutable to Manchester. I wouldn't however go through the hassle of the, not insignificant, commute if this was what I came home to.

Agreed.

I love visiting the countryside but I also like a convenient commute :)
