Can't be arsed to click the link but is this agency express? I've seen a few of these in Essex. Normally more like 15% -20% discounts.

They are the last stop before reposessions aren't they?

The experience of viewing one "keen to sell" was repo'd a week or three later.

FWIW, whilst I don't know the details of this particular bungalow, I was talking to a local EA about a couple of other bungalows in the area only about 3 weeks back.

He told me that he had recently managed to sell one for 170K, or 180K, IIRC but that was after it being on the market for over a year at about 210K.

He told me he was trying to sell another at the moment for 230K because the lady who had owned it had passed on and her son and daughter were adamant that it would go for 230K. He tried to get them to put it at 200K telling them they would be lucky to get 190K but they weren't having it.

Viewed a house yesterday. After saying 'hello' the next thing the seller said was 'It's priced to sell you know" which I took to mean 'Don't even think about offering less than the asking price".

I would have walked out there and then. Not even saying bye.

"Really? How many offers have you had?"

There are a couple of these companies based in Swansea that sell nationwide although they prefer to stay local.

Most of the time they have to advertise it on Rightmove to get it past certain loop holes and be able to sell it to an investor already lined up.

The investor usually needs to put about £3 - 5k down as the rest of the deposit can be used from a bridging loan taken out using the apparent equity in the property due to it being around 20% BMV.

That is really interesting to know.

You look behind you and ask the seller "Where's the queue?"

The agents appear to be 'We sell houses', Boreham Wood Hertfordshire

Must be a repo.

Depends where it is in Killay, but still overvalued

It is a few hundred yards from those houses that are on the market for 600K or is it 700K? I don't think anyone has lived in them have they?

I hear that at least one person bought one and was mightily p........d off one week later when the sellers went bankrupt. The others look empty.

The bungalow is 667a Gower Road. It is an infill behind Mike Davies leisure. So access is through a semi industrial land with rusting containers etc. The bungalow does not join to the road, so presumably future access problems could occur.

£250k?

Yes. Everyone knows its ass. As in 'I can't be assed' .... and 'that person who called me chavish is an asshole'

I've seen a couple on in Swansea with "Express" and they did come in on properties that had been on for yonks and slash the previous prices.

Not so in this case or with this agent by the look of things; it's at least 50K over the top.

nah, not this firm.

They have a unit on an industrial estate in hertfordshire and have a grand total of 10 properties on their books across the whole of the country.

Doubt any investors would want anything to do with wesellhouses

I always thought that the firms engaged in this sort of affair were the ones that buy cash for 20% below the valuation and then charge investors a fee to find BMV houses that they already own.

I thought that an ass was a donkey but that yanks use the word "ass" because they never learned how to spell in skool.

you should have said "my offer will be priced to buy you know".
