16 Burren Way

Recommended Posts

Never thought these words would escape my lips, but shouldn't this house be worth more!

Firstly welcome to the forum.

In answer to your question - NO!

I presume you mean the 16 Burren way in Cregagh, Belfast for £145K. It has a DCV of 80K so I'd say it was ridiculously overpriced. If you are being sarcastic you are being very subtle.

It is usually reasonable to post a little of the detail of what you are talking about, a link to the property, saving stating the address publicly etc. and reasons at to why you think it too cheap.

Only expensive because George Best lived there so no doubt that would add some value to it

Ah that is helpful thanks, I have no interest in football or George Best. I don't think a special previous owner will really help a properties price all that much, maybe a few % but not 60%.

Dohhh! Forgot to post the link, and guess post didn't make much sense without it. Thanks Ride On for pointing this out and adding on my behalf. Yes, I was being a little light hearted. Of course £145K would be outrageously over the odds for a house like this (but the man was a legend). Suppose I still wouldn't pay £65K over RV for it though.

on with PJ as well as TR now, 10k reduced off asking price :unsure:

Looks like TR and PJ have read and acted on the comment posted by Norfolk_and_Chance on the Bel Tel comment section:

The house has been on the market for nearly a year now (it went on propertynews on 20 August 2008) and that in itself says it all about the NI property market. That listing time is a typical in todays NI property marketplace.

Even with 20k knocked off it it is still overvalued at 145k and hence that's why it hasn't sold. The Domestic Capital Value of the property is only £80k. We have a Mexican standoff once again. I am sure Templeton Robinson aren't holding their breath over finding a buyer (commercial or owner occupier) anytime soon. Price it to sell realistically and it will sell. Simple stuff really.
