Urban Splash houses on Barlow Moor Road

Blimey.... something's gone wrong there eh?

The whole side on Cundiff Road is covered with scaffolding, tarpaulin and a roof!

So it is just repair work then? I thought they were maybe extending up another storey.

I'm wondering if the tarpaulin has made it to Hull yet.

wondered what that was all about.

I quite like them actually, nice inside. Was once going to buy one, back when people used to buy properties that is, but it was out of my price range and I kept on renting instead.

Glad I didnt now, what with negative equity and whatnot. Cash is king at the moment, or so my Dad says.

I don't think negative equity is a problem in Chorlton. There has never been a major drop in house prices. They have been rising steadily since God was a boy.

That's what my (Chorlton homeowning) friends told me when I was in the process of buying my place a year ago. On a slightly serious note, how true is that? (Assuming Urban Splash don't build a big shed next door to you, of course).

Thats not strictly true. Prices have come down in Chorlton since 2008, so if you bought in say 2007 or 2008 it is likely that you will be in negative equity now, but granted Chorlton has faired better than many other areas.

This is further compounded by the fact that rents are still on average lower than new mortgage repayments.

Adding these two factors together then I am in a much better financial position now renting than if I decided to buy.

Never underestimate the potential for a housing collapse, and certainly never assume negative equity is impossible - when I was a boy my family lost everything because of such hubris.

We need at least one major market readjustment in the UK before the cruft is really out of the credit and mortgage system, and Chorlton will be hit by that to some extent. I hope not too hard for all the home-owners here, but at the same time, I'll be in the market to buy in a year or so, so, you know... errr... that might help me a bit...

There a graph thingy of house prices on rightmove:

Seems to show a bit of a dip from 2008 to 2010, comparing against other Manchester postcodes it doesn't seem that much different.
