Homeowners have slashed asking prices in the run up to Christmas according to Zoopla.co.uk. Zoopla.co.uk said the number of properties for sale in the UK that have had their asking price reduced at least once since coming to the market has climbed by more than 13 per cent over the past three months. The number of discounted properties for sale is up from 32.2 per cent in August to 36.4 per cent. The figures also show the total value of the house price discounts has risen by almost Â£500m over the last three months as owners start to get both more realistic and desperate to sell.
