It's Not The Price, Guv

Recommended Posts

This place is on a Council Estate - probably not a dangerous one (used walk through it all the time) but totally bland and souless. The green they talk of in the details in just some open-plan patch of grass where kids may run about screaming, playing, and generally doing kid stuff. It's not really near the town centre on foot. It's near light industry.


Let'sd drop the price 2k with another agent, or four..





But, hey, 'gotta make money from property' somehow so let's rent it out for something daft instead:


This is worth not more than 100k to someone who's willing to sacrifice location for a bit of extra internal space. Even in today's loony market it's shouldn't be more than about £159.

Anyone seen houses on with half the agents in town? What's the logic in this approch? When your place comes up six times on rightmove it just looks silly.

TTRTR get your chequebook out right now, because according to you "prices are set to rise". :lol::lol:

There've been a couple on Brunswick Street in Ardwick which have sold - they've got agent to let signs up now - but I can't see people paying to rent when 2 mins walk away is the lovely soon to be finished grove village. Mind you it is dead near the chippy and booze shop and chemist, so what more does a person need?

(And its 2 mins walk to the uni too)

But again its landlords buying them - not people - and that adds an unstable element - the rest of the street are council tenants who're in it for the long term.
