It Hasnt Sold For 9 Months So...

Recommended Posts

unsold house

Its been around for a long time this house, without selling.

I viewed this house and the owner was holding out for asking price of £180K so I left her to dream on.

Now back on the market after being away for a month, new EA and 5K more on the price.

It must sell now. People will be falling over themselves to buy it now that it costs even more.

So this house on next to my street came on the market for £165K, didn't sell for six months, reduced to £160K, didn't sell again price reduced to £155K, didn't sell, taken off the market, came back on market after a couple of months, new estate agent £158K, no surprise didn't sell, back to £155K now, and hasn't sold yet. This has been going on for 18 months. Houses flying off the shelves, my ar***.

This house hasn't sold for a year now... £445k same price as last year.. fine house but estate agent is a bit naughty... the house is superb but what they haven't said is that the big garden advertised is only 1/2 its former self now as the owner sold the bottom half to someone else to put another house on it. I told the estate agent at the time that this was misleading as we were only going round on the basis that it had a big garden. He said that he knew about the details error but due to printing problems he couldn't change it...

so others like me would have been round and been deceived

pesky EA's

The garden picture is from the side... nicely hiding the house at the end of the very short garden !

I can beat that

There is a house round my way which has been on the market for 4 years with 3 agents. It said "sale agreed" for about 9 months and now it is back on with a new agent at 10% more than it was last on for!

They will probably be trampled in the rush

Look at the "Wags spend £55k an hour" stories flying around the England camp in Germany and then observe

that these same women are eating McDonalds, pizza and chips. Clearly, people who are flashing the cash

(their own or borrowed), have absolutely no taste. They rely solely on price tags to determine whether an item

should be bought. It's the old Stella Artois "reassuringly expensive" ethic.

Sounds like the seller of the above house is merely acknowleding this :P

Fully agree - so many people these days "know the price of everything and the value of nothing". That to me is the main explanation of the housing bubble - pure psychology/sentiment.
