Chancer Of The Day Award Goes To..

Recommended Posts

I posted this in "East Midlands", but thought I had to share it with you all,

Todays "Chancer of the Day" award goes to:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-31047872.html

They want £725,000 for what is essentially an "executive" new build on a postage stamp plot.

But worse.. according to THIS they paid £545,000 for it in March 2009 and was £250k in 2005

You gotta love a tryer.

Anyone else got some humdingers ?

Was that really £250k in 2005?

I raise you this:

They say "victorian pump house"

I say a bunch of renovated cow sheds.

You drive up to the imposing iron gates -

the reassuring crunch of gravel under your tyres -

and then, as you behold your luxury cow shed you'll know - you've arrived!

Brochure says it's "5 Willoughby Road", NetHousePrices says that address sold for £250k in 2005

Holy shit!

This is going to end in tears, isn't it?

I'm going to send a link to this thread to my mrs who is starting to apply pressure to buy.

I had waterworks last night because the rented house we're in has a flowery border in the bedroom which she hates. To be fair, she's pregnant emotional and wanting to 'nest' but reading this will snap her out of it.

Not everybody who'd like to own a house wants a big garden, with all the upkeep - and looking at the price, the buyer could be working very long hours to pay for it!

It's not, to my mind, worth the money that they are asking though.

This is possibly a typo, but I noticed this on RightMove this morning, and it looks like our old friend Jonathan Blain is giving it another try:

Makes perfect sense that if you're house doesn't sell at £800,000, triple the price to £2.4 million. Sure to get offers then. This guy is Chancer of the Decade.

The Old Bakehouse lies directly on a small inlet where the River Wash flows into Bow Creek your front room.

Good heavens, you are going to be attacked by swans as well. That place is so comedy I am tempted to arrange a viewing.

This place has given us a great deal of free merriment. From the advert, I am informed;

"is on the market for the first time in over 30 years, and is unlikely to come on market again within most people’s lifetime"

If you click on the full brochure on that link it says the price is 975K so it has already been reduced by 100K. What professionalism by the agents not to redo the brochure they only want 15K ish to sell the house.

Yes in the 19th century you could have been "to the manor born" or "lord of the manor." Now it only buys you "lord of the cow shed."

Bird and I think this kind of property is quite rentable, mainly for novelty value, but also because yields are ultra low.

Not sure I'd buy one though, fashions come and go.....

Does it float? It probably needs to be able to.
