Surely A Joke Price?

Recommended Posts

That made me think of this just outside Dundee on a new build estate: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-30431714.html

The average wage in Dundee is apparently £20,000, (http://www.campbelldallas.co.uk/library/news_and_pr/05.06.10_faster_rise_in_income_tax_hits_dundee.asp) but even that sounds unrealistically high.

Hmm, might 50 times the local wage be a tad 'toppy'?

twelve acres of communal fields owned jointly by the residents.

Oh, it has land...

that must be worth a total of, oh, £24k maybe, divided by the number of residents. Probably adds about £2k to the real value of the house, if it is not agriculturally productive and has to be maintained,

Sincerely hope anyone insane enough to be interested is doing just a little homework.

Land jointly owned.......?? Could it be because the building of White Farmhouse ,Leckwith was sold in June 2000 for 245K? I suspect they have since divided the farm house but can't be arsed to deal properly with the land issue.

could it be the lack of an actual house?

No, I can see the house... was expecting to see giant electrical pylons looming over it on the google maps or some factory next door... but it looks a house amongst other houses in the country... Not even a sewage farm in site... so not sure what the absent detail is?

You can't see the house. There is no house. The absent detail is one 5 bedroom house. Absent from the photos, and absent from the physical world.

PMSL :lol::lol::lol:

You are right - how odd! When I read your initial post I went and immediately looked at the google maps without looking at the house details.

Very funny.

A rare opportunity. Planning consent has been sought and obtained to build a significant detached residence, which once built, will enjoy a prominent, established location with wide reaching country views. The plot, believed to be 0.37 of one acre, is slightly elevated with a number of retained specimen trees and sizeable swimming pool. This is an approved, outline application, giving the purchaser the opportunity to influence both design and finish.

That has to be the funniest description I've read in years. So you get a slopey piece of land, some trees and a swimming pool and the chance to design and influence your own home? And all for the princely sum of £450k? Sign me up, I can't miss out on this bargain piece of crappy land.
