Empty Houses For Sale

Recommended Posts

I normally do a last 24hr check daily on houses within 10 miles of Wootten Bassett under 175k and i have noticed that an increasing number of these houses are either empty or with an odd bit of furniture planted here and there, obviously a sign of more repo's and btl's giving up the ghost.

3 of those houses look like they could have been owned by elderly couples who've downsized. Or possibly dead and being sold by the administrators of their estate.

A family home I could be interested in has sat empty for 6 months, with the elderly sellers having moved to a retirement flat, hundreds of miles away. A conversation piece for them, telling me on first meeting how they bought for £3000 and now worth £280,000. They can afford to wait, with a life where mortgage payments not ever an issue for them, 2 pensions, and greedily hoping for big money and they'd rather leave it empty than lowering the price.

There's a house a 100 yard down the me that came up for sale yesterday (friday).

To my eyes, it was a little old lady falling down round their ears house.

There have been builders in - rebuilding front wall, lots of stuff going on round the back, etc.

Had a nose thru the window - all empty, magnolia-rised. Looks good - empty.

Stepped over the road and looked at the roof - about two years down the road from falling in - tiles, slipping, etc.

FFS even the most useless surveyor is going to turn up, look up and walk away.

I'd loved to know the story. Out of money? Out of sight,out of mind.

not too difficult to work out what is going on. RAF Lyneham is closing, with its engineering and operational elements moving across to RAF Brize Norton throughout 2011. All those well paid technicians and overpaid aircrew are selling up and relocating. I suspect that if you did a similar study for Brize Norton & Carterton you would see upwards pressure on prices. By the end of this year RAF Brize Norton will be employing 7000+ personnel.
