£10,000 For A House!

Recommended Posts

£10,000 (Guide Price) for a house, up for auction in Rodney Street in Hartlepool.

http://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/news/10000-for-a-house.6412658.jp

"They may have to be willing to sit on it for a while, but in the end I think they must make a profit. It's the cheapest I remember in the last 18 years in Hartlepool."

Nah, mate, just go on houseprices.co.uk. You'll see that one went in Rodney Street for £10k on 8/06/2004 & one went for £9k on 16/07/2002. It's far more reliable than your selective memory.

Good point. Sums up the whole housing madness we've lived through.

Yes, & this is a crucial point in highlighting that estate agents & such understand that much of property is a pyramid scheme.

If somebody wants to use the product at the end of the day then fine, BUT, if nobody actually wants to use the product & it is

just getting passed on from investor to investor, it has become a pyramid scam.

It should also be noted, that once it is understood by all that the product can only be passed on & will never be consumed/used,

then the game of pass the parcel comes to an end.

Update:

If this house did indeed go up for auction on Thursday, July 22 as stated in the Hartlepool Mail, then

it looks like it didn't sell.

A quick search on houseprices.co.uk shows that the last sale in Rodney street was on 19/04/2010.

Rightly or wrongly (wrongly is my opinion), auctioned properties aren't included on houseprices.co.uk or any of the other websites as they are apparently not a true indicator of market value. :blink:

Go figure. dry.gif

How long does it take the data to show up?

Ah, right.

Be interesting to find out what it went for then. Shame I can't read the company on the sign in the pic.

Yes they are included in land registery data and so will show up on houseprices.co.uk. Although they do not include these sales when calculating their house price index because of the reason you mention.

The house is single skinned and should be knocked down just like they have done with the single brick houses in my town.

They are damp , cold and quite frankly unfit for living in.

Still, you receive all the same state benefits in Hartlepool that you do in Harrow. Its madness they dont move all the (unemployed) housing benefit recipients to these places.

Their benefit monies will, afterall, go a lot further up north than in London. In relative terms, they will be richer. Its in their own interests as well as the taxpayers.

Yes it is, but will hardly be "handy" for the new jobs, will it? ;)

Go figure.

Unless they are a repo, when they will not turn up on houseprices.co.uk (or be used to calculate the statistics).

But they are availabe from the LR if you purcase the details for the specific property (which if you are looking for trend info is often useless as unless you actually tried to buy at the time, finding the exact address of a repo retrospectively is next to impossible).

You've not been to Hartlepool then?

A thread about Hartlepool is never complete until we mention the monkey hanger story.

"Monkey hanger" is an affectionate term by which Hartlepudlians are often known.

According to local folklore, the term originates from an incident in which a monkey was hanged in Hartlepool. During the Napoleonic wars, a French ship of the type chasse marée was wrecked off the coast of Hartlepool. The only survivor was a monkey, wearing a French uniform (presumably to provide amusement for those onboard the ship). On finding the monkey, some locals decided to hold an impromptu trial on the beach; since the monkey was unable to answer their questions, and many locals were unaware of what a Frenchman may look like, they concluded that the monkey was in fact a French spy. Just to make sure, the animal was thus sentenced to death and hanged from the mast of a fishing boat on the Headland.

People say this like it's a stupid thing but we've not been bothered by the French since. Or the monkeys.
