But surely a truism is that a place is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it?
Where my new place is, on a finished and what seems to me to be a well run and managed development, I paid what I regard as a fair price for mine, although I still made a half hearted attempt to secure a discount - that goes with the territory, doesn't it?
I knew I would have to renovate and that's in process, but not to the extent that it would mean I would have paid the 1.1m extra the empty place opposite is on sale for, with one fewer bedroom and a smaller plot.
So that truism, in what must be a buyer's market, is surely more relevant here than in many other places?
