7-bed Victorian-looking house in a bad state.

Any thoughts on this one? Even at 375K it looks cheap.


Definitely cheap and can get you a good yield too if you can let out, say, 5 rooms. Very good connections into London as well.
Only problem (if you intend to live in it rather than rent it out) is that it's on the South Circ.
The mighty neo liberal steam roller that crushed all before it from the 1980s to the beginning of the new millennium has morphed in recent years into a Charlie Carioli clown car that now can not go two yards without loud bangs, smoke pouring out of the engine and the doors dropping off.

Sometimes I wish I was a builder (I hope my son becomes one, to my wife's horror). Turning that round would be great fun.

Not sure if 'fun' is the word that I'd use.... have you ever seen the film The Money Pit? http://en.wikipedia....i/The_Money_Pit

I've been trawling through my 'area' again on Rightmove. Lots of kite flyers out there. So many of the properties now have reductions it's not funny. (Ok it is funny). I quite like the amount of houses that have twenty or thirty thousand knocked off them in the first two weeks. What? No viewers? Shit, let's knock twenty grand off. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Some roads have definitely fallen in value in the last few years - I'm talking nominal, not just real.

I don't see an end to it

Yeah, they've got to fall. There isn't that much selling. I guess there aren't that many qualified buyers to buy.

15% drop in asking in 3 months. Evidently no serious interest. 3-bed with garden in Victorian conversion.

Why isn't this selling when London is supposedly still rising?

Some possible reasons:
1. Needs some work doing to it.
2. kitchen tiny (though can extend into the garden in the future)
3. Near to Tulse Hill.
4. Overpriced in the first place!

I bought on Clive Road recently. I had been renting on Martell Road for 2 years and Herne Hill prior to that. I'd been researching for about 18 months.

Thoroughly depressing as a prospective buyer - very limited pool of quality housing. Any quality housing goes within days, and in my experience; in a single day! Irritatingly, I had to enter a sealed bid, after months of frustration and offers being turned down and 'feeling' the market. There is still far too much money, chasing far too little quality housing.
