Is It A Picture Of The Ea?

Recommended Posts

I'm going a bit off topic here, but bear with me.

I live in the supposedly low-priced north and have been looking for a place in the £500-750k bracket for 4 years. In that range, anywhere within 10 miles of me you don't get as much as you might think for that sort of money - everyone prices houses like they are located on Sandbanks.

But I looked at that property and thought they'd knocked the 1 off the front of the price. You couldn't get close to that much house for that much money up here, even with the estate agent picture on the wall and his granny living in the cellar.

Is that area some sort of property black spot?

Yes you do get a lot of house for your money in this area, 48 minutes to St Pancras too, a good deal for London high earners in this area.

£6k a year for the season ticket, so you need to be on an appropriate salary, but yes houses are far cheaper, than something the equivalent distance south of London, say Brighton.

Agreed. Really nice looking house for that price.

Think I can clear this one up as I live within the area in which that EA trades; I've thrown away last week's property supplement but 99% sure that's a picture of the guy who does their photography.

Each week in the paper they have a 'where's Olly?' or whatever his name is and they hide his pic somewhere within the supplement. Never been arsed to look for him but pretty sure that's his pic.
