Holland Street

£250k off, but it looks like the house itself could do with a shave.

Saturday, 27 April 2013

Highlever Road

Reduced by £200k after just 2 days on the market.  A change of heart, or an attempt to manipulate the Rightmove index?

For those who don't know, Rightmove's index is based only on newly listed properties so any price cuts don't show up in the figures.

Kings Road 4 bed flat

£300k knocked off this flat perched artfully atop decent shops for decent people.

Chesilton Road - Battle of the discounts

Faron Sutaria are trying to tempt buyers with a £175,000 cut on this property in Parsons Green.

But Chesterton Humberts have undercut them with a £250,000 discount.

Who will be the first to find a deal?

The most important house built in Britain for years?

'Offered for sale for the first time' says the blurb.  It appeared on Rightmove today priced at £7,350,000.

But in fact it was put on the market only last year for £8m.

You can't get one past Property Spotter that easily.

Bryanston Mews

An actual house in Marylebone for less than £2m after a ten percent reduction.

Lower Cumberworth, Huddersfield

Half a million pounds off this country house in West Yorkshire.

Chester Sqaure

Possibly trying to pre-empt a certain high-profile probate sale, this place on Chester Sqaure has had its price cut by £450,000.

Avenue Road - Almost £10m off

A pretty dramatic change in expectations from this vendor.  How much further will it go?

In any case it looks better value than £250m for the one on Carlton House Terrace

Of course this is not quite a record.  This property in Hampstead holds that distinction.

Graham Terrace

I can see a pattern forming.  At the rate of one million off every three months this one should be affordable in only a few years.

Clarke Lane, Bollington

From £1,650,000 to £1,175,000.  No cause to open the Bolly yet in Bollington...

More Cheshire properties here.

Lyndhurst Road - Six million drop

Sometimes it only takes a few days to realise you've pitched a property at the wrong price.  Six million down in only three days this time.

At this rate it will be free before summer starts.

Coleherne Court

A quarter of a million discount, but now in the zone where the stamp duty threshold comes into view.

Horseshoe Lane, Totteridge

In many ways Totteridge beats Elmbridge if you like a balance of country life with good links to the city.  This place has had its asking price cut by half a million (sadly less than 10%).

Hambledon Place, Dulwich

Out in not-so-prime London the drops can be dramatic.  30% off in two months.

Addison Avenue, Holland Park

Compared to some apartments in the area, this almost looks like value.  Still Foxtons have had to slash the price...

As a commenter pointed out, it's only a couple of blocks from some ugly tower blocks.  Addison Avenue is in the bottom right of this map.

More Prime Central London properties here

Wood Vale, Muswell Hill

A fallen through sale prompts a 15% reduction in the asking price of this semi in Muswell Hill.

Four Million Drop - Avenue Road

Ordinarily a four million pound drop in the asking price might make one think the market were struggling.  This is a genuinely beautiful example of London architecture.

Burwood Place W2

"A once in a life time opportunity" - but not exactly leaping off the shelf.

Price slashed from £5,750,000 to £4,500,000.

A bargain in SW1?

Or just a very low-ball guide price?  It will be interesting to see what this goes for in May.

Billionaire's Row

The Bishops Avenue in Hampstead has become known as Billionaire's Row due to it being one of the few streets in London able to accomodate palatial scale houses.

This one has come on the market for a cool £34m.

Lower down the oligarchy the prices seem to be sliding:

The (two) million pound drop

Looks like even asking prices in Kensington are under pressure.

Half a million Poundland

Yes, living above a Poundland shop doesn't come cheap these days.  Not if it's in Hoxton.

Worth asking if the graffiti is included, although it doesn't look like a Banksy to me.

Soho So High

A lot has been written about the way Prime Central London (PCL) has defied the banking crisis, the Eurozone crisis, the debt crisis, indeed seemlingly any crisis it faces.

This 1 bedroom apartment looks like the ultimate test of PCL's mettle.  It's in the West End, a stone's throw from Tottenham Court Road station and is for sale for a cool £1.3m for just 58 sq. m.
