Recommended Posts

Would you credit it - managed to twist this into a property value story. His house wasn't worth as much as reported. :lol:

Osama bin Laden hideout 'worth far less than US claimed'

Pakistan property experts say US government description of '$1m mansion' was way off the mark, as further exaggerations come to light

Osama bin Laden's house, described by the US government as a $1m (£605,000) mansion, is in fact worth no than $250,000 say property professionals in Abbottabad, the town where he was killed.

Well I'm still not buying it - it's a blatant sales tactic to make it look like you're getting a bargain - list the property at £1m, drop it to £250k - in reality it's probably still only worth £150k -I'd offer £100k on account of the fact it probably needs a thorough cleansing.

Sparsely populated, desert, logical backward financial system, id imagine a house there would only be worth what it cost. I guess if it has lots of security features it could be worth a million.

I could see a Yank buying it

edit I suppose it will be demolished or turned into a miltary base

Well of course it is no longer worth $1million. It is in serious need of replastering and redecoration, and no one wants ot buy a house in which someone has died...any real estate agent could have told you that.

If the Americans buried Osama at sea to prevent his grave becoming a shrine then what are they doing about the house where he died?
