Wonder how many of these estate agents in manchester will survive?

It must be pretty tough right now to sell any property....and possible law suits for mis-selling to investors? Fraud charges? OO it will be messy.

Same true of Birmingham, can't move for the blumming things! Is anyone in that turquoise monstrosity at the top of Bradford Street (opposite Bradford Street Police Station where the Serious Crime Squad used to kick the shit out of people.)

Most major cities are suffering the same fate

Flat prices in Newcastle no exception:

In a couple of months these Home.co.uk figures will show the same trend for other house types IMO.

In Luton last quarter flat prices were down 4.4%.

It's going to be a masscare in every town / city who have embraced "city centre living".

In my sleepy town, they are still building them having only started recently.

It's goign to be messy! :rolleyes:

Horror story in the north...they have and are still converting old mills into huge blocks of flats....

the irony to me being that only a totally warped economy would do this....

Great manufacturing centres turned into secured debt rabbit hutches!

Ever been to 'Clarks Village' in Somerset?

A former shoe factory turned into a shopping mall, kind of sums up the UK economy I think :angry:

Its everywhere these days unfortunately :angry:

These are dark satanic mills....why anyone would want to live in them I don't know.

They could house the cutting technology of a future manufacturing base but oh no...what about 500 flats and a shopping centre selling sweat shop tat?

It beggars belief to see how many of those shoeboxes are still being built.

One huge block next so St.James

Two blocks on the west-Quayside (and the traffic light they put there annoys me to no end)

and some more.

I wonder who the heck will buy them. I would for 50k or so... :lol:

City centre flats are fast becoming the Rover 600 of housing. Every month they make more and more, but nobody buys them because nobody wants them.

Don't you mean the Allegro - on of the all time turkeys of the many produced by BL, apart from the Triumph 2500pi of course.

Leeds did ok!

Leeds

I live in Leeds and I can tell you that virtually nothing is selling at the asking price if at all , recent detached house sold near where I live me went for 159K which was on the market for 200K pre Xmas, loads of flats are unoccupied and houses that are for sale seem to be changing agents weekly.
