I can only assume that the Boomer occupier is hopelessly insolvent and needs 800k to pay back the mortgage and buy a 1 bed flat.

I know of 3 other boomers in a very similar situation. Toxic combination of retiring early, MEW, overspending, believing in pensions etc..

Once rates rise you will see gafs like this being repossessed as banks scramble to get their capital back.

I do sometimes wonder if people remember that we used to mine coal in many of these areas. Coal mining generates far more contaminated water, triggers minor earthquakes and leaves huge, dangerous spoil heaps behind - it's much worse than any fracking operation.

The banks require buyers in large parts of Swansea to get mining surveys - which adds to the time and costs of buying. When you get to the Gower penisular you are relatively safe but lots of people are now unaware of mining that took place under leafy Swansea West.

The closest the above house has come to a mine is probably someone building a sand castle on a nearby beach.

There was a map of potential shale gas sites on HPC recently and it looked like a lot of the potential shale gas is near old coal mining areas - so those areas have just come out of the coal industry blight and are likely to be about to enter a shale industry blight.

Might help reduce some unemployment blight.

Might help reduce some unemployment blight.

Indeed and at one time in those areas there was a push for more manufacturing jobs to replace coal jobs but a lot of that went by the board in the push for debt, votes and the easy way out and to be mainly replaced by public sector jobs and benefits.

Relative to its impact on housing coal/shale industry blight likely has more impact than the benefit of shale jobs but I suppose like a lot of things it depends on the numbers involved. If shale gas money helps to boost localities like oil sometimes does then it might be a positive but if the environmental impact is greater then on balance it might be detrimental like the coal and oil industry often are. Then there's the reported risk of shale gas release and so on.

Swansea is special ;)

Tis my birthplace so it will always be special to me , salute to the immortal Windsor cafe oh and RIP Sweetmans bakery, your corned beef pasties will be missed!

As for the house price thats just comical looks like a nice house but seriously there must be no more than 300k's worth of bricks and mortar there!

As any EA will tell you ... it has been SOLD but the purchaser could not proceed due to some personal issue. They just need to up the price to get the right type of buyer. People from London will look at the price and assume something is wrong with it as it is so cheap.

We need a more accurate abbreviation:

SSABSS

Sold (subject to actually being sold. someday...)

Prestigious? So prestigious they felt the need to scrimp a few quid for a flat roof front extension and the cheapest upvc windows they could find.

Agreed. Plus the Velux on the front aspect of the roof. It may be big, but it is an ugly tasteless mess.
