Default House hunting

Didn't realise oh stressful it can be to look for a house big enough to be a family home to many out there but needs to the one that feels right if you know what I mean .

What are prices like up your way Scotty? A developer currently building on some farm land in my home town wants £330,000 for a 2 bed house, Iím sure it will be nice when itís finished but thatís mad!

When I can afford to buy Iíd like a garage with a nice house attached.

Be surprised how cheap our houses can be for example we are going to see a 3 bed semi with a big back garden nice front with driveway can build a garage at the back offers over 119,995 we also looked at nice 3 bed semi a few days ago about 2 miles away from us and sold for 130k but new builds can be mental money I prefer ex local authority as they have more space for less money and built properly .

That's one of the reasons I won't move nearer to Crawley Rob, gets more expensive as you get nearer. We're looking at the moment and one of the biggest issues is parking, we already have 4 cars and with Tom just over a year from 17 that could soon become 5 so need a garage and drive space with the addition of some on road parking for visitors.

A not that special 4 bedroom house just outside my close was up for £950k last month and has sold. How on earth can people afford that? Mines only worth about £350k maybe a bit more.

closer to london you get and if your on the main line in i.e uckfield, horsham, prices have been soaring for years,has forced a few people i no out, purely because rents are getting so high,and they cant afford it.

House prices in this neck of the woods are really crazy. A 4 bedroom house with 3 out buildings 2 garages (1 double) and half an acre of land in Wales, cost less than a 2 bedroom flat where I live.
