getdoon your girlfriend sounds like a lucky girl - does she realise how expensive BT9 houses are? How about a nice wee apartment on the Malone Road somewhere?? Surely they're bound to drop in price with the 100's of apartments being built around Belfast recently?

well an apartment would make sense if i buy in the short term (next 18 months) . if the market falls a lot after I buy then happy days as its less money to upgrade to that BT9 house ;-)

well done subby 903 some guesstimate

I'm going for 2,000 this week again. My asking price has been dropped again this week and I think the EA's themselves know they need to clear out the dead (i.e. overpriced) stock before FTB's will consider buying in larger numbers again!

hey Getdoon.

this website - trees... records both increases and decreases - i.e. changes.

the spring bounce could cause a wild upswing in prices as those savvy investors choose at what price they realise their paper-gains.

Also - there is talk of every buyer of property being given money by the government to make up for the difference between what prices sell for and how much people pay for them.

Well if there are 27,000 overpriced houses for sale, 2,000 dropping in one week seems reasonable-after all that's only around 7% of the inventory! Especially with more 'realistic' sellars like me dropping 27% off the asking prices and willing to listen to offers!

You are quite right, with every sensational press release a reation follows on in the market.

It's about time EA's told their clients, either prepare to negotiate a selling price or you're off the market because those who are desperately trying to sell are more likely to negociate on price with FTB's. The other properties are just fudging the issue.

Oh you missed out on the hilarity of last week then. Click here to check from post #149 onwards

That's the gold right there alright - oh yes indeed. Careful though it comes with a serious health warning. You could have sore sides from laughing so much with the various comments.

Given the number of property fire sales at present and the general economic outlook for NI in general in 2008 and into 2009 I am going to plump for the rather apt 999

Oh I read it yesterday, wild entertaining. Particularly liked WOW's response to labrador's complaint (and no offence labrador, it's just the reply that was funny):

QUOTE (labrador @ Apr 24 2008, 11:17 PM) *

has anyone noticed that when someone posts something suggesting the market is picking up or something is posted which is good about the property market it gets totally ignored...

WOW: You may be right. And your guess for the sweepstake?

..reminded me of Holy Mary in Phoenix nights as the fortune teller:

HM: 2 questions for £1 love

cust: £1 for 2 questions! That's a bit steep isn't it?

HM: It is love. And your second queston?

Something to that effect anyway. Tres drole...

welcome to the forum and be careful to keep an eye on Subby and his extensive range of gifs!

as for TTDGTTS, subby should be banned from taking part for a week, my take is 1066 (battle of Hastings and all that)

I look forward to these winning properties every week now from you Vespasian and for the little "extra gems" of sales speak that you add to convince us that we should pull out all the stops and try our best to win the prize.

I particularly liked the reference to the Wan-kenhut Wardrobes - They must be quite large units then??? :P
