We Are Going To Redecorate ....

Recommended Posts

The above was the hot news revealed to me this fine morn by a London couple awaiting the 'Olympic effect' to hit their Stratford investment'.

"Aren't you concerned about a glut of Olympic property for sale after the two weeks of folk running around in circles & throwing things?" asked my partner in his (almost) inimitable style

"Yes, we read about that risk which is why we are trying to get ahead now".

"May I ask how many viewings have you had in the last six months?"

"Err, one, but lots of enquiries".

:blink: Neither of us could bring ourselves to ask the next question. Who could?

I know someone who's moved down south and put a new kitchen in to his old house before he went. One viewing and they said the kitchen was a bit small in the 4 months since they went... (And he's suss about that cos he'd rung up the week before to ask if there'd been any interest...)

If you were a bloke, the next question would be - "FAncy going out for a beer tonight?"

Update (due to all the hundreds of PMs I have received desperate for more info)

:- Having met the couple again today I can reveal the secret of how redecoration translates into increase viewings when there have hardly been any viewings anyway.

Quote: "The agents will attach a sticker saying 'newly decorated' across the window display", said mrs couple, & she was being serious.

At this point diplomatic relations ceased as my partner, - already with tears rolling down his cheeks & a serviette stuffed in his mouth -, burst out laughing when I kicked him under the table.
