  1. Some areas and units on offer are beginning to reach the realms of a realistic level of pricing, not there yet but getting there slowly. Other areas and units still need dramatic and draconian cuts, a further cut of 70 to 80% would still leave them overpriced and as much as that sounds ridiculous to some then I’m afraid in my humble opinion it is the reality. Having paid vastly overinflated prices for any property never leaves us able to see reality and naturally we would wish to recover as much of our outlay as possible. Sadly it is these units that still remain unsold and always will unless someone comes along who wants to launder cash.
