This house is in a good part of Stockport,and comes with a building plot for another house,but must be the most derelict-looking heap I've ever seen advertised in Marple Bridge...

http://www.rightmove...y-21258414.html

Seems like a nice spot, and as they say, it is being sold for it's development 'potential'.

No indication of the size of the plot(s) though, so can't begin to judge on the asking price.

Found this shed to rent near Winchester.

Spacious is NOT a word I would use to describe it! There's barely enough room to stand up, let alone swing the proverbial cat.

Only 625 PCM

This drab two bedroom bungalow is a snip at 550K. The agent says it's in need of complete modernisation throughout, I say it's in need of a bulldozer.

A little optimistic or a cracking investment opportunity? You decide...

Hard to tell if you're looking to buy, rent or just post post to this thread acharmlessman.
Given both properties you linked to were in Hampshire I'll assume rent or buy 1 bed minimum within about 10 miles of Winchester.
Both properties you linked to were west of Winchester which is the expensive side imo but you included a buy property very close to Winchester. If you're looking to buy ,Petersfield may be a good option in that area imo.
The views expressed in my posts are my own based upon what I read on other information supplied by other HPC members.
These should not be used a a definitive answer to any posts I attempt to answer.

Actually the more I look at the photos and the floorplan and so, I think that wins the thread. :blink: At least for the past year or two.

Truly incredible.

The sold prices on that street are also terrifying.

The street also has its own wikipedia entry
http://en.wikipedia....i/Leckford_Road

'The most famous resident of the road was Bill Clinton, the former US president between 1992 and 2000. He lived in 46 Leckford Road while studying.....'

I wonder if this is number 46 after the correction!

Wow. That's the kind of house that was selling for 30k in Northampton ten years ago and would now be put on around 100k. 685k for that is just insane.

Just look at the energy efficiency!

You guys are too bearish on this, only 30x national earnings in a bubble for the ages with mortgage rates recently decoupled from BoE rates because of the CML lenders 850bn funding gap, plus you can see a wall from your desk.

Some people...

[Yeah, whatever, double dip recession this, retails sales that, you're not seeing the story - I mean Bill Clinton... Bill Clinton]

I'm wondering if it's the additional house on the grounds, in Photo #5, that has upped the price considerably.
Tell me all about it and start at the end.
