The 'mother' Of All Flippers

Recommended Posts

This terrifies me:

This house is on the market for £339,950

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-102...pa_n=1&tr_t=buy

It sold in June 2005 for £225,000

http://www.houseprices.co.uk/e.php?q=ba2+9ay&n=10

I don't begrudge anyone making a profit for legitimate work (renovation) but I think they've over-estimated what they believe someone will pay for this one.

From driving by it each day (on the main road adjacent) it doesn't appear to have a garage or parking.

Can't see anyone paying more than £250,000 for it.

Xil.

"Refurbished to a high specification, with Limestone Bathroom and a good size Kitchen / Breakfast Room with built in double oven, automatic dishwasher , fridge and freezer."

And they only want 100K for their efforts?

Might put in a higher offer to secure it :lol::lol::lol:

I remember clearly during 2002 that unless you put in an asking price offer for a house, you had very little chance of having the offer accepted - let alone getting to completion.

Most sales I see are going through at 10-20% below the asking price (an asking price that may have dropped to get a sale).

And some people say prices are still rising!!! :lol:

.....but if you're making an offer, I had better go up to £350,000 -"to secure the sale" rofl2br.gif

Not many period features left for a "period cottage". Looks like all the life has been renovated out of it.

Look at the map too.

Its right on the A39 just a few yards from the A4 roundabout..... a busy road just near a very busy road.

just perfect for children.... or thats what an EA would probably say.

It is literally on the A39. The positive thing is that for an hour and a half each morning, the traffic is stationary at the end of the garden - because it is queued back from the roundabout. At least the kids can play in the road with some degree of safety at that time.

A nice house if you like spotting cars. And listening to cars.

I'm waiting to see it appear on Property Ladder. "After the house was on the market for 36 months, the vendors decided to have it repossessed by their bank".

I`ll see your Bath, and raise you with a Hoylake

http://forum.firstrung.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=43&st=0 :lol:

:)

You might have beaten me there (although I can't find the house in question on the bflhomes.co.uk web site - sold already?!!)

Percentage wise, I think I'm still ahead (by less than 2%) so I could still wind this round of poker!!

In reality, I hope they both sell for the same money as they were previously bought for, or less. ;)

Well, its taken a few months but the asking price is down by £15,000:

....can't believe it hasn't been snapped up now that it is with three agents.

How much is that buy-to-renovate loan costing? Still, you can't lose on property. :huh:

Crazy. Bath's pricey but you can get something nicer for far less. And all that recessed lighting is vile.

I agree - I'd put it at £250k tops.

Nice to see all the work that has been put into landscaping the back garden though

When I was a boy I dreamed of paying a third of a million for a garden like this.....

Well, another three months have gone by and it still isn't sold.

What next?

Let's get five estate agents to market it:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-12349961.rsp

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-7117633.rsp

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-7769107.rsp

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-7757782.rsp

That should do the trick. I'll be back in October for another look......
