Bizzare Photos

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or do there seem to be a stupid number of pointless photos of kitchen taps, radiators, etc ???

Surely a house of this calibre must have sufficiently good features to include a few pics of the bedrooms, etc ???

I mean, with things for EAs supposedly very quiet at the moment, you would have thought a bit more effort would have gone into trying to seel this house??!!

I'd pay 450k based on the quality of the taps, definately.

They are trying to distract potential buyers from realizing that it is a small box close to the railway line and a busy A road and hoping that some nice taps and radiators are enough to overcome these obvious flaws ??

If you flick from the kitchen: http://media.rightmove.co.uk/6k/5056/5056_...IMG_00_0002.JPG

to the living room: http://media.rightmove.co.uk/6k/5056/5056_...IMG_04_0001.JPG

They look like two different places.

It's like "Here's a shiny modern kitchen .... and here's my gran's council flat"

No you won't. I've just bought it.

I was going to wait until 2012 for my looks-like-an-extended-starter-home dream mansion, but this is unmissable. I am also partial to period houses that have been decorated as if they are flats.

Mint!

but ran out of credit in 2009 for the lounge.

says a lot about the modern culture of spending money on 'appearances' and not 'substance' IMHO.

I know more than a few friends/families that have spent VAST sums doing up their Kitchens at the expense of other parts of their homes.

I noticed this as well and then the reason dawned.

The kitchen/breakfast room have no windows and hence no natural light. So where are these rooms in the cellar ?

Looks more like a hotel foyer than a living room.

I always have a wry smile when advertising a million quid house, EAs think to point out "telephone point in the hall" - yep, that's saved me about a tenner - well worth a mill.

Why have they made their ordinary family house look like something from a middle-market hotel chain? Wonder if guests can't help stealing their towels.

I'm surprised how many people value the photos. When I view rightmove, the floor plan (with room sizes) and location come first, followed with the photos. I see straight through the decor, as that's something I can do myself.

Its the face of british modern new build 'stylish', and the property porn brigade (wanna come up and see my taps?). Very 2007.

Theoritically:

The land costs about £150,000

The house costs about £100,000

According to me, that means the taps must be worth £450,000 - 150,000 - 100,000

=£200,000

Its a bit like the marxist development of labour theory of value

housing theory of taps

I look for the photos which aren't there.

For example, there was a 650K house for sale in Swansea which did not show a photo of the bathroom. Looking at the room dimensions I was staggered to see the bathroom was tiny.

So best to check what EAs do not show/list.
