Bristol Anecdotal

Recommended Posts

Hi

Does anyone know much about the development this is on??

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-113...pa_n=3&tr_t=buy

My gf is interested. I suspect a disaster waiting to happen, but would love to know if anyone knows anything (ignoring the obvious: 250k for a 2 bed in southmead wtf!!!). Nethouse prices shows they bought for what they are asking in 2003, and others have been selling at a loss! Who buit em?

Cheers

Yes, I know this development, I go past it on the way to work. It looks like its the new-ish development at Royal Victoria Park. There have been properties for sale there almost continuously since the development finished and nothing seems to sell quickly. The same properties seem to come on and off the market without being sold.

The development looks fairly good but I imagine it is a prime target for all the thieving chavs from Southmead Estate. I would avoid it purely on the ground of location.

I work just round the corner from this development. Drove round it today on the way home - lots of For Sale signs, not a single Sold. One property in particular, that I've noticed in the past, seems to have been on sale for at least a year.

Cheers everyone. I have a similar opinion, I work in the hospital so the the extent of the chaviness around here. Any more knowledge would be greatfully recieved.

A lot of the flats are for sale at a knock down price (compared to what they were originally) and the last one to sell at repton hall took quite a hit. Have a look at nethouse prices

This is a nice pad, but have things really gone up this much?? I used to live just round the corner, its not that nice, its okay but nothing special.

Really I am putting this here in the hope that I can watch as the price gets reduced. However people are still buying at some crazy prices around here. :unsure:

i'm in Bristol. Tried to buy 1 bed flat 2 years ago but both fell through.Both places i tried to buy were around the £100k mark. You couldn't get anything for that now-which is why i won't buy at the moment. I just can't fathom how a 1 bed flat can cost more than 100k, it's ridiculous.

The places I was looking at before Xmas, basically 2 bed terraces in St George/easton/eastville/whitehall and redfield were going for about 105K - 110k. They all now seem to have jumped in price to 125k. Have prices really gone up that much in 6 months or am I losing the plot? :blink:

On the plus side, rents seem to be dropping again, with 2 bedroom flats at Baltic Wharf going for £675 pcm now, and 4 bedroom townhouses with harbour views for £1200 pcm. :D

and

Surely anyone buying to let now can't even be covering an interest-only mortgage?

the funniest one has got to be this one:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-588...a_n=18&tr_t=buy

when it was on originaly about 3-4 months ago the asking price was £120k, then it went to £109k- which was insane anyways! not much better now though, you have to ask the EA how much it's going for!

I think it's lovely. Just think of the time you can save brushing your teeth while taking a shit.

The great thing about rightmove is it seems the EA's still have to tell them a price so it comes up in the correct searchs. The EA's has listed this one at £100,000 ( as the same price appears above and below it)

Worrying news from a friend the other day who is looking to buy (and sell) in Clifton. He states that things appear to have taken off again in this area. He has been to see a few places that days later have been sold. Please tell me this is a dead cat bounce or what ever it's called? Stated there are currently more punters than sellers. This is not what I am hearing from other parts of the country so I was quite shocked. Looking in an esteate agents window to check this story out, there are a load more sold sunbject to contract signs up. However, he did state that there seemed to be quite a few repossessed flats about. Some people are evidently beginning to feel the pinch.

However, on the plus side I have noticed "to let" signs seem to be slow changing to "let", so there may well be a few landlords thinking about liquifying their investments.

Arrgggh I am so fed up with blinking property.

At the risk of being called a VI puppet and receiving a flurry of posts containing links to 750k properties that have been reduced by 10K, your friend is correct, the housing market is hot at the moment in Bristol.

Houses are selling quickly and are being snapped up as soon as they go on the market. I rang up a number of EA's about several of properties at the weekend - all 2 bed terraces. They had all had offers put in on them at the full price or above. One was even gone to sealed bids such was the interest.

The only places that were still available to view were overpriced or in horrible locations.

I was chatting to one EA and he reckons there is a lot of demand but hardly any houses coming onto the market to satisfy that demand hence the prices rocketing up once again. Obviously it's probably best to take his words with a pinch of salt, but he seemed genuine enough and the lack of harassment I'm getting from all the agents I've registered with seems to suggest it's not a difficult market to sell in at the moment.

I reckon the stand off between buyers and sellers over the last couple of years with sellers refusing to drop prices and buyers not willing to pay is finally over. Unfortunatley unless it's a forced sale people are unwilling to drop their prices and people just aren't willing to wait any longer.

I think this article sums up what's happening at the moment. People are even queuing for 17 hours to buy overpriced executive shoeboxes in Bedminster.

I dunno. They're convenient for The Honeypot massage parlour. :D

I can understand why people might buy a 2-bedroom starter home in, say, Warmley for 150k, or even a 2 bedroom flat on Baltic Wharf for £200k but anyone buying a flat in a s*** part of Bedminster for up to 220k must have lost their grip on reality, surely?

It's not been as good since it changed from the Bird Cage. :rolleyes:

I tend to frequent the citi centa sauna at the top of stokes croft. Excellent service. And you can get 3 pieces and chips for 2.99 from slix next door after working up a bit of an appetite.

i think the demand is also coming from so many people relocating from London to Bristol for cheaper housing, and we all know Clifotn is now just a mini-suburb of London

The new 360 development of the pink and blue blocks of flats on the water front have now started to appeer on rightmove, there are currently 23 of them for rent!! and they are way overpriced (£850 for a 1 bed flat a month!!). They are going to fall in price big time

The thought had crossed my mind. It makes sense seeing as the few places left in the country still experiencing rising HPI all seem to be connected to London via good transport links.
