Has only been just over three weeks and we have a buyer, and one thats offered us just a few thousand under asking price.
So please please please do not give up if you are tring to sell right now, or have tried without much luck last year.

There is a real postive feel in housing market right now, if anything there is a massive shortage which will not improve soon, which is great news for those investing in property.

Thought I would share the good news, especially to all the doom and gloom merchants suggesting that I should knock 20% or more off the asking price (:

Noddy do you tHink prices will come down significantly? I hope so as so many people I know are having difficultly buying ( and my 21 y o dd will never leave home!)

This is the second house in 5 years we have sold that we took slightly less than we paid for it when we sold, a sign if things to come perhaps? I'm starting to think that renting for the nexr year or so is a good idea even if we weren't being forced to do it iyswim?

I rented for 15 months and got a good deal. I think it will be a slow decline over a few years and then stagnation for years.I do take my advice from reputable people tbh and have made a good living renovating houses but still would prefer to see a crash if I'm honest as like you I just can't see how young people will ever even rent! The govt have stalled the crash a few times by introducing silly schemes plus low IRs and silly multiples when borrowing but this is tightening now and I hope this year will see falls.

My agenda pmsl Yes I hope they plummet as they are ridiculously high atm.

Blimey Jane, that's not nice is it? Personally i think something needs to happen with house prices because wages aren't going up and jobs aren't that easy to come by. The market will end up stagnating if people can't afford to buy and it's rapidly going that way.

OP I'm afraid I don't believe a word you're saying. You have no history here and I remember very well your nastiness on the previous thread. You're a troll. Don't know what your agenda is - are you an EA? an "investor"? You're speaking garbage anyway. "Positive feelings in the housing market" and "desperate people fighting for what is coming on the market" blew your cover.

The thing is when I started renovating the money to be earned was not like what has been seen on tv shows. That was all based on a rising market and silly mortgage offer. People expect to make ££££ but it is like any other asset it can go up or down. It is at the end of the day a home and that is being denied to many many families who are at the mercy of landlords and are never settled. And it will be the same for our children those whose parents have property will get a leg up and those who weren't in a position to buy will never be able to help their kids.It is all very unfair. Everyone deserves a home

Good news Noddy. Many happy years & times in your new home x

Heh heh, this has descended in to comedy now. What an odd little character you are @janethewitch. I am having trouble imagining what it is you want or expect from Mumsnet.

noddyholder Sat 26-Jan-13 20:46:25

oh is it me? I've always wanted pink hair smile

janethewitch Sat 26-Jan-13 20:48:56

@elizaDay... Well you care to tell this board your agenda??
Last time all we got from you was this over the top political mumbo jumbo when all we wre trying to talk about me not being able to sell my house.

mylovelymonster Sat 26-Jan-13 20:49:26

I think you should all go put your feet up & watch a nice movie on telly with a small sherry and chill out a bit. That kids program - WDY - go switch of the computer & go do something less stressful instead. Right idea.

Whorules Sat 26-Jan-13 20:51:33

Is that what you're going to do too mylovelymonster?!

mylovelymonster Sat 26-Jan-13 20:54:48

Yes, I think I will grin Have had a tough day - 26 kids at a birthday party!

mylovelymonster Sat 26-Jan-13 20:57:47

I hate seeing everyone squabble - is too stressful. The Uk housing market is a fecking blush mess, but is very different across the country. Is a very emotive subject because it involves our beloved homes that we work our arses off to provide for our families. Please go and think about something else.

mylovelymonster Sat 26-Jan-13 20:59:05

Or I will have to start banging some heads together

Wandastartup Sat 26-Jan-13 20:59:21

Janethewitch, I've not come across anyone like you on the Property forum. I don't for the slightest moment believe Noddy has sent you a threatening PM, as I'm sure you would report it to MNHQ if so.

noddyholder Sat 26-Jan-13 21:27:28

I absolutely didn't I reported the post where JTW said I had problems and was picking on people as I think it was a personal attack and I sent it to her in error. I have the post in front of me You are getting ridiculous now Ciao

EIizaDay Sat 26-Jan-13 21:27:35

Janethewitch is making herself look really silly now.

noddyholder Sat 26-Jan-13 21:33:34

MN have now deleted the posts thanks. Unfortunately I sent my original complaint to JTW in error when it should have gone to MNHQ.I have never threatened anyone in my life
