Optomistic Seller Or Crazy Estate Agent

Recommended Posts

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-31107491.html

Have a look at the Street View.

You can just imagine the keen viewer having seen those photos standing outside saying "What is that monstrous growth on the side of the house."

To add insult to injury this sold for 762,500 of your hard earned at peak 2007. Now lick of paint, fancy kitchen it has apparently doubled in price.

Who is the fool the vendor or the estate agent for even contemplating that this is worth 1.5 million. For less than that you can get a real house.

I have seen some truly perverse EA behaviour locally of late - 2 properties went on market - unmortgageable - both EAs concerned bleated on about loads of interest, it'll go to sealed bids. :blink:

What happened was they probably put potential buyers off - didn't want to get into a bidding war - and they didn't receive any offers.

Both properties are sitting there weeks later.

ah - but it is in the bohemian quarter (in Cheltenham?) so that makes it worth one and a half million. Would not get out of the car to view it :)

pedant mode on

it is optimistic not optomistic

pedant mode off

Yeh but it's only a short walk to Ruby's Cantonese (the best in Cheltenham IMHO) and around the corner from Bargain Booze ... must count for something surely :blink:

I'm really amazed by Cheltenham's prices ... there seems to be little to no downward movement at all :huh:

I drive past this about once a week.

I've always felt rather sorry for the house :rolleyes: and once suggested to a friend who used to work at the NatWest carbuncle he might get a reward from Prince Charles if he was to 'accidently' destroy his workplace

Do not worry they are not selling, I do not understand how the cheltenham estate agents are staying in business, rentals perhaps. There was a load of optimistic sellers just arounf the corner in Montpellier Grove, thinking their semis with nice kitchens were worth 1.2 mil, both of the market now, unsold.

Never heard of a Cantonese woman called ruby. Must add to the price surely?

I agree but you would think they would box the pipes in for that sort of money wouldn't you? My old dad would have had a hissy if he had seen something like that.
