It's Worse Than I Thought

Recommended Posts

Why? What's wrong with it? It certainly beats some semi or new build in a cul de sac with gardens overlooked by neighbours from all sides.

At offers around zero I would have thought it represented a reasonable punt even in a falling market. Short of compulsory clean up of contiminated land or something.

Maybe it is like those 99p flights...... with the taxes, etc.

You would have to pay me to buy that dump.

I don't know what point on the property market you're at, but I can tell you that for the first 25 years of home ownership that would have been a dream property for me and my wife.

I'm beginning to sympathise with that IPOD story I read in yesterday's Sunday Times, having read that comment. I had to save and do without a lot to buy a very non-descript mid-terrace house when I got married (they now sell for £130k according to housepricenet, so don't tell me they're unaffordabl now).

How expectations have changed!

Is it because it's in Rotherham?

There are some nice areas on the outskirts of Rotherham that I would be happy to live in (emphasis on outskirts).

Now now calm down everyone. I was mearly trying to make a joke that if the price is currently £0 yet if prices fall any further due to a house price crash "you would have to _pay me_ for that dump".

I'll get me coat. :(

:lol: The ultimate negative equity.

Mind you, there are plenty of places you really couldn't pay me to live in.

Yet their owners actually expect me to pay them!

For circa 110000 I would at least expect the house to be wearing a hat. :huh:
