I'm new to posting on this forum, but not new to reading and watching this forum with interest. I've recently returned to Mumbles where I lived for the best part of my adult life, to find this.......this.........absolute gem of a house, rather decently priced too !

If Carlsberg did Denial !

Last bought in 2006 for approx 343k, now at the highly reasonable price of 595k.

I think they may be in for a rude awakening and a loss that would make that well known tw*t Richard Desmond squirm !

This is the one that I posted about earlier on the Swansea thread.

Good one isn't it?

I honestly thought it was a typo when I saw his last week, 395 not 595K, the house next door has just sold and it will be interesting to see the price paid fron land reg in a few weeks.

to be fair they have done a nice renovation job - the price is still at least over 150k too much - the problem is that there are idiots out there who will offer close to the asking price! who these people are i really dont know

I am shocked that you think 395K would be OK for it!!! :blink:

For that money I would want a large sun room the width of the rear of the house and not a small conservatory.

Looks like they spent so much they didn't even have enough left over for a TV stand.

Still, at least they didn't mount it on the wall.

ok maybe i am going soft! but it is a nice quiet road, nice garden with some views and well fitted (so far as you can tell from the pics) so does "tick the boxes".I think about 380-400 is fair.

IMPO your HPC handle is spot on :P

300K I would give for that modernised. Sorry, not a penny more.

That is about the price that you should expect the property to be advertised for.

Less the 20% below asking price that should be offered is round about the house value 300,000 - 320,000 ;)

if they bought for 343k and spent maybe 100k they have got to get 450-500k to break even, hence i assume the pasking price.I am sure they will be happy to get away evens from this one.A classic case of paying too much for your development project.

Don't forget, 2006 was in the middle of Swansea West asking prices going nuts so shouldn't that 343K paid price be taken with a bit pinch of buyer beware?
