I know of a house in south Belfast which was valued at 340.000 fourteen months ago.     It sold 6 weeks ago for 200.000.  scary or what?

The volume of sales is way down on last year. A local estate agent said that these statistics on the fall in property values are very misleading, because there are so few houses being sold and the only ones selling are those who have to, which means they have to take what they can get.

Absolutely Dave.   I was talking to girl who works in an estate agents, and she was saying that it's very rare that you'll even make the asking price.  For example, If you put a house on at 200 grand, don't expect to even get that much.  The buyers know what the craic is.  Where,as,    2 years ago, if you put your house on at 200.000, you would expect it to rise (at the very least) an extra 20 grand.

The BBC News site contains an article dated Friday 18th May 2007 which mentioned
that two-bedroom apartments at Clarendon Quay were expected to realise 320,000. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/6666815.stm
