Isn't Property Bee Great

Recommended Posts

£875k to £749k in 2 months. :lol::lol::lol:

Looks great in the photos, but it's opposite the village hall and playing field where the yobs from the massive council estate (200 yards away) hang out. On a busy road too.

Just about the most expensive place in the 'village' and it ain't that nice a village. Hell, I lived there long enough.

I reckon nice properties in below average areas are gonna get hit hardest.

Reckon that if this sells they'll be looking at £650k tops. Ouch.

Not exactly "ouch" if they paid £5k for it in 1962. rolleyes.gif

Quite frankly it might as well be monopoly money until it actually sells and is bought by someone that can actually afford to buy it.

If it was bought at "peak madness" then yes, it would be "ouch."

I disagree. Regardless of when they bought it, they put it on the market at a price they were probably advised to. I'd guess they had that kind of figure in mind too, and were perhaps hoping/expecting to accept maybe £830-£840k when viewers made a queue to the door.

Now, just two months on, reality bites and they're probably going to end up with £200k less than they first hoped.

That's 'ouch' in anyone's language.

5K in 1962 would have bought you 500K loaves of bread,

Now 500K only buys you 400K loaves of bread

Next year 300K loaves
