Just a bit of Thursday comedy
I particularly like this comedic gem: "Islington, north London, has bucked the trend for falling house prices across the rest of the country as property values climbed 13.4 per cent in the last 12 months. Between December 2008 and last month the average price rose another 2.2 per cent to £584,206." Swiftly followed by the bargain of the week, two bed down from 430K to 390K - real world - NOT. Surely this only implies that the vendors in absolute abject denial live in Islington and have just continued to raise their asking prices and then sell for an apparent reduction.
