Spot The Difference

Recommended Posts

I've just been browsing Rightmove and came across these two properties. How silly can you get. I never thought I'd actually come across this type of thing myself. Its still is a rip off at the lower price.  :blink:

One picture is out of focus and the second incorporates a knackered old blue van (probably the EA's, times are hard). So, do I win a prize or do I have to find waldo too?

I've seen this in the local rag, one house is asking £270k turn the page to the next agent and they 'only' want £259k for the same property.

They've advertised with two agents who are also registered with rightmove. This is why your seeing the same property twice. Also it could be that they've removed one of the agents who still hasn't updates their database. I assume if they have removed an agent, it'll be Castlewick who was selling for £280,000.

As someone born and raised in that dreadful place, you would have to pay me £280k go live there - even for a year.

It is now the most depressing place - full of graffiti, litter and the evidence of petty vandalism. Bus shelters invariably have the glass smashed - it seems to be de riguer. Most to the people that lived there when I was growing up were decent, law abiding people that simply wanted to work and live their lives in peace.

I guess most of them are still like that but the yobs have now won completely. Decent people now just lock themselves indoors and hope the unpleasantness won't come in off the streets.

Yep, I agree, the area has gone down markedly in the years I've known it. That whole road now seems to be BTL properties. Even I would not walk down that road at night. Shame really :(

Very simple. Different agents. Different valuations. Different selling strategies. Note the lower priced had multiple photos - of the same scene but non-the-less! It shows up at the front end of the search, and is a known success factor for selling... Conclusion: the lower valuation REA are more hungry.
