Glasgow - Are All Sellers Completely Delusional?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm… this flat could potentially be spectacular and in a good area. Bet it sells for or close to asking price. Things are only worth what people will pay for them.

And you call yourself a bull! Did you mean: "It's a spectacular property with oodles of potential making a very sound financial investment - houses only go up in value don'tcha know"?

I am a little confused by your second and third sentences - they seem to contradict each other.

I don't think they do contradict themselves – my point being that the west end is a ridiculously popular area and that although properties may seem overpriced, a lot of people are still paying good money for them. I don't get your "you call yourself a bull" comment or the needlessly cheeky tone of your post! ;)

As an aside – It's interesting to see the way half of people seem to be aggressively telling people that house prices are going to drop dramatically and the other half saying that everything is fine. I would have liked to have thought that people were capable of forming opinions based on more than self-interest.

2 guys tried to mug me several years ago about 100metres from that house. Fortunately I side-stepped them and got away. There were people about walking dogs at the time too!

"a fine apartment close to the vibrant West End"

IE in Maryhill.

Doubt the neighbours will be much cop either. As I recall it was the location of all night E and acid parties when I was a student.

Maybe you could make money renting this out? Feck staying there.

And a quote from the sales blurb suggests it's an ex-student flat......

Development Opportunity – A substantial traditional blonde sandstone top floor flat with pleasant aspects requiring general modernisation and upgrading whilst affording enormous potential for a fine apartment close to the vibrant West End.

Would be worth asking to view the place on a Saturday night in about 4 weeks time, once the students are back in town. ;) Might not be the quiet "des res" the seller suggests....

Isn't it amazing how far and wide the "West End" has spread?

it's the west end, within a stone's throw of byres road. it's not mary hill, but it's estate agent bs should say "just off qm drive". it's overpriced by any sensible measure. if it made that price it wouldn't be a surprise. if it was 2006/2007 it would probably have made more than that quite easily. why any adult would want to live in studentville escapes me, the apeal of a brunch crepe is just not enough....

I think this one is so expensive due to the hours it would have taken to come up with p1sh like:

- Quote from architect -

Expectations. They¹re rarely met.

You search for the very best,

but scarcely do you find it...

It doesn't even rhyme!?! :-)

Oh, and it looks like an office in a downmarket industrial estate:

Poor attempt at a haiku? Maybe it didn't translate well...
