For Sale: Premier Property With A Top-Flight Attraction

Recommended Posts

Basically someone offering Swans' season tickets if you buy his house... but he is now, according to his former EA, trying to sell it for more than the EA had it on the market for.

ASTUTE minds can see a world of opportunity in Swansea City's sensational rise to the Premier League.

And a Swansea man who is selling his Mumbles flat is no different.

He is guaranteeing a buyer the chance to watch Swans matches against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal — and the rest — by throwing in his and his wife's Premier Club lifetime debenture at the Liberty Stadium.

The debenture guarantees two tickets for all Swansea City and Ospreys games at the Liberty, plus tickets for two at concerts, which have showcased the talents of Rod Stewart, pop group JLS, Elton John and The Who in recent years.

The former businessman, who wishes to remain anonymous, currently pays £190 per month for the tickets. The debenture is reviewed every five years so the holder has the opportunity to retain it for life.

A Liberty Stadium spokeswoman confirmed the debenture was fully transferable.

But the opportunity of luxury Premier League viewing comes at a price. The one-bedroom flat at the seaside village's St Anne's Apartments has a £250,000 asking price.

The one mentioned in this article, which is listed with Dawsons estate agents, does not appear to be on Rightmove... but as I know you lot are so interested here are another 7 on that development :)

I have lost track on how long some of the above have been on the market. I seem to recall lots of swapping of EAs and listings and relistings on RM for some for several of the properties there for several years now IMPO.

Oddly enough, I can't find one in this development on the market for the 250K mentioned in the article on the Dawsons, again mentioned in the article, website. But they do have one for 40K less at 210K asking - surely it can't be the same one?

Ah. Hang on...

But the opportunity of luxury Premier League viewing comes at a price. The one-bedroom flat at the seaside village's St Anne's Apartments has a £250,000 asking price.

Estate agent Dawsons said it had marketed the property at a lower price and attracted plenty of interest, but said the owner was now hoping to sell the flat privately.

The vendor, originally from Pontypridd, but a Swansea resident since 1974, said: "We have our home in Swansea and we bought the one-bedroom apartment in Mumbles as an investment.

Ah, so that explains it - Dawsons did have it on for a lower price but the seller now intends to sell it for more privately. Makes sense :rolleyes:

I can't remember when these flats were built - it seems years ago now. What was it 2006, 2007 or was it 2008? It has all blurred into one.

Well, best of luck to him in trying to sell it for more than he has, according to the above article, had it on with an EA firm.

This reminds me of what another Swansea EA told me a few weeks ago. They had a house on for 345K for 2 years after it had been on for the sam price with another EA for a year previously - i.e. 3 years on the market.

Then, a few weeks back, the seller allegedly demanded that they up the asking price by 20K as the Swans were now in the premiership. The EA told the vendor, allegedly, where to go and dumped him telling him, allegedly, that he would be lucky to get 250K for his house.

I am told that the house is now on with a third EA firm now for the 20K more.

Reading between the lines, we are getting to the nitty gritty of what someone will do to sell a house. :D

Did not work for Blackpool.

Quite an interesting perspective on the housing market though isn't it - have it on with the EAs for one price and then try to sell it for more privately.

Thank goodness I did not buy it for less when it was on with the EA :rolleyes:
