How to use a gap between 2 houses and try to sell it for the price a proper house?

My general rule for Reading  is that many properties' prices approach reasonable if current asking price is halved.  This one is an exception - doesn't look good even at 25% of the asking price.. 

 

Sold STC... wow!

That's just depressing. I estimate it to be ~300 sqft area.  Smaller than most 1-bedroom flats.

2 bedroomed terraced bungalow OIRO £175k. Being a terraced is pretty rare in Norwich. A hell of a lot of work to do there:

This 2 bed bungalow in the same area is semi detached and is for OIEO £160k. Looks less daunting as a project but this is probably still overpriced.

1960s timewarp house for £325k. Last house on this road sold for £260k in 2013 (ceiling price on this road), so this museum piece seems horrendously overpriced.

That groovy carpet in pic 6 is giving me a bit of a headache. :wacko: But I would be tempted to keep that mint humbug themed bathroom in pic 10. B)

So let me get this straight, you only own a quarter of the house, yet they're expecting you to replace the bathroom and kitchen?!

Not a s**thole but an asking price of £185k for this ex-LA leasehold flat! :blink: Similar price to some 3 bedroomed freehold houses. Price inflated on account of no neighbours living underneith, nor is it ajoining another property.

Last sold in 2005 for £100k and in 1999 £36k. Possibly sold by the council via Right To Buy for a lot less prior to 1995.
