Another Bloke At Work Anecdote

Recommended Posts

I've known him for about 3 years and he's a nice chap, but likes to exaggerate. If you've been to Tenerife, he's been to Elevenarife - that kind of fella.

Anyway, he reckons his house was worth around £600k at the peak and only dropped £20k via the dip. I remember looking at RM asking prices in March with him and he was saying similar houses up for £400k (the same as his) were on the wrong street, worse condition etc.

He is looking to move to a £700k house and was confident his house is now back to, or over the £600k (he claimed) mark and he can shift it to buy the next house.

He got his EA valuation today and wasn't happy.

£430k with advice to take £405 - £410k. Wanstead.

Start calling him the Wanstead ****** :lol:

Isn't there lots of stabbing and stuff goes on round there?

It's a conservation area, apparently.

That was his reasoning to his house only dropping 3%ish when everywhere else plummetted :lol:

I feel sorry for him (a bit). He had his heart set on his next place and had already offered near asking. He did only pay £100K for his house and it's paid off, so still has full equity in it, so don't get the violins out. He's done well from HPI.
