Funnily enough when I went to the consultation meeting and asked the price of the new houses I was told it would be in line with the local market. At which point I said, 'okay, around a million then ??'. The developer refused to comment further but a smug know-it-all old bag from South St, told me not to be so stupid, they couldn't possibly sell for more than 750k.....

A two bed is only £775000, I think I'll take two. Better value than one 4 bed.

If I had £1.5m, I'm not sure I'd buy one of those - might look in Wallands instead.
However, I'm bemused as to why people think a commercial developer should sell for less than he/she can get. Would anyone here sell their home for say 40% less than it was worth?

So beautifully situated water front properties in a prime location. What were you expecting exactly?
A block of flats or a few social houses, I don't think so

I think that the 1 bedroom ones are £650000. Bonkers.
However the South East property prices are beyond a joke. If I were 20 years younger I have no idea how I would get onto the property ladder. Rental prices are more expensive than mortgage repayments too. To me much of this goes back to the right to buy and the spiteful government policy of not allowing Councils to use the monies from council house sales for new housing. This helped to create a housing bubble due to too few being built. Now Tories now are going to force housing associations to sell property too. None of us really benefit apart from estate agents, banks and those downsizing or emigrating.

affordable housing is available in Jaywick. Prices start at about £40,000. However, only a few have been smart enough to do them up and improve them, it seems people who actually live in 'affordable' housing don't really make good tenants ! Watch the programme. There are opportunities out there, but like all things, they just aint on your door step. One needs ambition above all.

It is possibly the grimmest place I have ever been, and that says a lot - I grew up in Croydon.

BC, one of the reasons that people don't do up their properties in Jaywick is because they wouldn't be allowed to rebuild them if they were burned or trashed in a storm.
They were built as holiday chalets, and there's a covenant forbidding replacing them with anything else in the event of the original building being destroyed. Consequently, they're unmortgageable, hence the very low prices. They're mostly owned by BTL investors. A lot of them are then leased to the council who use them as temporary accommodation for homeless people.

A great paragraph from the Oakley blurb for Chandlers Wharf:
'Lewes has always been highly regarded for its schooling that if offers for both primary and secondary schools in private and state education.'
That should do the trick.

BC> Presuming you weren't wrong about why Jaywick houses are so cheap, let me ask you this. If all our low income essential workers, like nurses, shopworkers, carers, police, etc etc live in Jaywick, how do you propose they get here in the morning, if they can't afford a £1.5 million type home?

Not outed, DFL Outer - I've never been in the closet regarding my Surrey origins!
I made the best escape from the hell that is Croydon though. My parents moved to Milton Keynes (as grim as Croydon, but in a different way) and my brother lives in .... Jaywick.

Good for restaurants, some very nice (and affordable) housing and superb transport links to the South Coast, Gatwick and London. Oh and a PL Football team that has some of the best supporters in the country.

Stoke on Trent council were selling off streets of terraced houses (coronation street style) for a £1. Came with a £30,000 low interest mortgage. Now that house is worth £70,000. BTW they have work for Nurses, Carers, Catering Staff, Retail workers and other low paid jobs as well as qualified workers up norf too. Ever wondered why it's called a property ladder !!

I don't suppose any of those houses will actually go for 1.55 million that's just the starting price they'll probably end up going for nearer 1.1m still a helluva lot for a smallish 4 bed tho
