This is one of the ugliest houses I've ever seen (pic 3)

Yikes! It just looks odd not having any windows on that length of the house. Not worth anywhere near £270k to me.


Hoping my private pensions will be enough to meet my rental payments and allow a resonable standard of living into retirement.

This ones not only over-priced for a dump, but I'm pretty sure the neighbours extension in encroaching on their land!

I live close to this flat. The vendor is asking for £106k for this '1 bedroomed' flat. It was originally a studio flat. I can tell because the flats on this complex have decent sized rooms (for late 1980s standards anyway). Someone has put up a brick wall in the bed/living room to create 2 tiny rooms in which it would difficult to swing a feline in. <_<

The ceiling price of a studio in 2013 is about £73,500, which peaked at £86k in 2007 :blink: . Another sold for £63,500.

Some vendors really are trying to take the p**s! :(

^ Peter Grabriel Avatar, nice one Ames! B) "If you go down to Willow Farm..."

 

Just stumbled across this 1 bedroomed ex council flat. What a s**thole!

http://www.primeloca...1EUSvJmsmP3r.97

Going to auction with a guide price of £65k. Will be interesting to see what goes for. Mark my words - it will sell.

 

Aside from a new front door, it seems that nothing else has been done to it since the previous owner bought it under Right To Buy so 30 or so years ago. Even down to refusing to pay for new double glazed windows during the window replacement programme.

 

Might be worth the local authority buying it back, refurbing and renting it out again given the persecution of many of it's tenants under the 'bedroom tax'. :unsure:

From the tiny windows, the flat on the ground floor below it must be s***ier.

The flat's above a row of garages. ;) Given the lack of ajoining flats and no neighbours above or below this flat will be almost as good as a detached house once renovated.

Indeed, if the garages are included, knock it down and build something with character!

The garages are owned/rented out by the council. Mind, if the council bought it at auction I suppose they could build a pair of houses on the plot. Maybe a better use of the site but they won't have character.

This came up for sale today.....http://www.rightmove...y-50664374.html

 

I nearly rang them up to query the price, but that'd involve talking to an EA.

 

I was shocked at the price. This sold a few weeks ago for the asking price...........http://www.expertage...f}/external.pdf

 

That one had a bigger plot, and was recently refurbished.

 

What really got me angry was the "backing on to open fields" whilst correct today, the field has permission to be built on, and phase one has already started.....https://consultation...tegy Fig 12.jpg

you've got to seriously think twice on any property next to open land.

 

sadly, today, a developer can do anything they ******ing well like on green land.

Jesus wept! An asking price of £220k for this bog standard 2 bed terraced bungalow that isn't in London. :wacko:

 

http://www.rightmove...y-33759204.html

 

If it sells for anywhere near the asking price, it will reach the ceiling price on this road.

I'd like to nominate this: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-34347945.html note the sold prices of the other houses on the road. I thought it was a typo.

 

It was a tossup between that, and this one: http://www.rightmove...y-34352424.html, not exactly a 'sh*t hole' but to the right it shows they bought it in 2011 (!) for £600k.
