Another House With A Slim Chance Of Achieving Asking...

Recommended Posts

Outside S-Circular, and under 3m wide... I ask you... £400k for 44sq.m !

Must be a bargain as they've knocked 35k off since listing.

Similar crap went for near to that.

Just shows people are still happy to take liberties and we're a million miles from housing becoming affordable.

I would love to wake up in the morning and read about Gidiots demise this piece of scum deserves it.

Deary me. I was at least expecting some quaint little Victorian thing that might have a sort of kitsch value. But no, its just an extension on some 60s semi.

What council planners do and do not allow to get built is a conundrum.

Very close to me this one, and even knowing the roads, that is overpriced by a long way. The estate agent is more of a Balham/Clapham one and has therefore put a Balham/Clapham price on it. Might be difficult to achieve that, although around here prices are silly:

Yes it is big, but would anyone seriously pay over £1m for that?

Thanks for that. I needed a good laugh. Feel much better now. This won't even fetch 50% of that price come the bottom of this cycle.

I would rather buy this, use £14k of the difference to buy a season ticket and the remaining £995 for a laptop with a dongle. 2 hours each way of quiet office time.

These prices are only "funny" if you relate them to the amount of money one might "earn" doing a "job" of some description.

What you have to remember about the people currently in power is they do not obtain their wealth from earning money doing anything as anything as quaint as a job, they get it from inheritance, so there is no reason to make any connection between how much a property costs, an how much hard work might go into earning enough to pay for it. It's just numbers on a page/ screen. You've either got it or you haven't.

Housing affordability is a pretty abstract concept to most mainstream politicians.

I clicked on it and thought, hmmm, not bad looking place, looks like somewhere like Finchley, Southgate, Wimbledon perhaps....then I saw it was in Streatham - PMSL!

Is that 14k per year? Not far off the cost of the house over 25yrs! Although if you can get a job in York you're on to a winner.

This is now at 950K, still overpriced, but nice to see a 300K drop from the kite-flying.

But less then the annual cost of money
