48.9% House Price Rise In 9 Months - Dorset

Recommended Posts

This property (asking price £350,000)

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-30246251.html

is 6 Beaufort Drive, Wimborne, Dorset, last sold 6th Oct 2009 for £235,000:

So..... putting a new kitchen in and giving it a lick of paint is worth £115,000?!?!?!?! Hmmmmmm

Thing is, vendor will probably reduce to say £335k and sell for £325k so still a handy £90k for a £5k kitchen, £100 of paint and sitting on the property for 9 months!

Zoopla always massively over values. It's pretty pointless to be honest.

It gives you a guide and if you use it sensibly - look at others on the street, see if for the most similar ones there is a recent sale price - it's useful.

If you just take their calculated value for a single house as being pretty much correct then you are certainly making a mistake.

Its nothing to do with Zoopla..... Look at 6 Beaufort Drive.... ACTUALLY SOLD 9 months ago for £235k.... the SAME house is now on the market for £350k

Zoopla's estimate for that house is now £250k.

The vendor's is £350k.

My heart sinks when I read details like that - main bedroom 10' x 10', next two even smaller. They call it 3 bedrooms - to me it is one bedroom and two storage rooms.

What fecking use is a room 9' x 7'

er....I think zooplas estimate is pretty good tbh.

the house sold oct 09 for £235k and zoopla estimate for it is £250k, maybe a bit high but not bad, not like the vendors £350k anyway

Home cinema room!! The g/f says I can have a home cinema room when we get a house. I figured "Woo hoo, a whole room to myself", then I figured "Oh, so the g/f gets the rest of the house then ?".
