Flats Vs Rest

Recommended Posts

Interesting graphs:

I've been idly looking at these in my area (SE London). It makes for interesting reading. It appears as though the prices of flats have stayed fairly constant over the last five years, while the averages have been skewed by massive variation in larger property values.

Ahhh, my old stomping ground in Dulwich. Do I miss it, do I ****.

Go a little further south into Sydenham, Beckenham, Penge and Bromley and things look pretty desperate to me, all in the space of about 6 weeks. To Let boards going up like wildfire outside grim Victorian conversions, no doubt a result of the BTL sucker's rally, and plenty more for sale boards. No onward chain is being a rather frequent end phrase in the property supplement :D

This is something I'm very interested in - not what is happening to 'overall' indices relating to 'all properties in all areas' but more particularly what is happening to the price of the sort of properties I'd like to buy in the sort of area I'd like to buy them. I'm concerned that simply going by the main indices may lead to big mistakes - certain slices of the market in certain areas might already be in freefall, other slices might already be bottoming out, many bits are no doubt still rising fast. I'm also interested in the long term 'crash resistance' of different segments of the market.

Good grief, how can detached houses shoot up and down like that with the flat prices so stable?

Looks like dodgy data if you ask me.

Small sample size on the detached houses, and grater range of prices I imagine. Dulwich has some ridiculously expensive properties.
