Over Priced Houses Blacklist

Recommended Posts

I don't know whether this would break forum rules but is it possible for HPC members to start gathering (with evidence) examples of over priced houses and set up a specific HPC blog forum for these? It might just start to shame these people for thinking we must all be idiots.

Here is my first example http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-30190823.html .This house was on last year for £650k - didn't sell. Guess what cahnges agent and its now on for £750k. Just who do these people think they are?

Looks to me like they got planning permission to extend. This is a non-story.

I didn't say it was a story. I said it was an example of property going back on the market a year later at an inflated price. The details are exactly the same as last year - except for a 100k price increase on a property that was on for 650k last year and didn't sell. It has nothing to do with planning permission - which is what it had last year - so get your facts right. If you don't think that's surprising or not worth others finding other examples of deliberately inflated prices over last year why are you on HPC?

It's all overpriced. Even in real money, 70% off is nowhere near low enough for what is to come.

Wake me up (gently) when stagflation/currency collapse/mass unemployment adjusted 1996 values have returned.

Thank you.

It's about 200 yards from an aerodrome too. If you'r a big fan of Top Gear, you might not be after the sound of all those 'power laps' carries to you.

I guess if you pasted in the address (including postal code) your post would show up on front page of any google search for the address, possibly second to something like google maps or upmystreet.

How's about this one ?

Bought 10/08/2007 for £163,000

http://www.houseprices.co.uk/e.php?q=168+%22corn+street%22+witney&n=100

Now trying to sell for £239,000

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-15622602.html

Could be the Cameron effect :lol:

More likely what it says:

Fully refurbished to a very high standard

Still daft though, unless the fixtures are solid gold.

Planning permission to add a bedroom doesn't add value as the resultant increase in value is more or less the same as the cost of building the extension.

Only planning permission to knock down and replace by six new houses adds value as the "land value" of six houses exceeds the current "house" value

It's not even as if it's a new refurb as there is a tenant in there at the moment , so it's a second user refurb .

Lol :D that ad made me smile... it says

"Key features:

•Garden

•Parking"

Hell, it must be worth 750k if it's got a garden and parking, eh? :D

How posh is your area? How many houses do you have to look at before you get to one with twigs in a vase?
