Bit of an anecodate to brighten up a gloomy friday.

 

My missues and me are going to view a £1M house today, it's dropped £400K from first listing.....will let you know what the EA says.

Drop in a cheeky offer of 999k.

A cheeky discount worthy of Kirsty Allsopp on Location x 3! ;)

Can you afford it or are you just wasting everyone's time?

Yes on both counts.

Would Sir like cash ?

I say thank you for the QE, for giving it to me.

Then why have you been bitching about unaffordable places at half that price since forever?  Won the lottery?

With no report back should we assume that the Estate Agent is holding him captive somewhere ??

it puts an offer in at asking price or else it gets the hose again

Was an interesting viewing for sure.

The house is the first 1 ( or maybe the 2nd) i've seen since 2007 that was actually value for money and we've see a few over the years !!!

It was massive and a garden to match the house.

The main problem being the amount of work need to bring it up to scratch and the cost of upkeep.  Just getting a gardener to upkeep the garden would be about £2K a year.

The estate agent said people were getting a but desperate to sell at the moment and the BrExit uncertainty is having a massive impact, they even said, interest rates might rise.

The Countess want to put an offer in at £150 per sq foot ( about £900K), but even at that the numbers dont add up.

For the first time in a long time I think there is some hope though.

Regarding the comment. "buying at the peak"...it's only buying at the peak if you're paying peak prices.

Peak prices round here are about £350 per sq foot and that's for a sh*t house on a sh*t estate next to the motorway.

MODS, feel free to move this to anecdotals.


Was an interesting viewing for sure and worth seeing what the price per sq foot for a decent house should be locally post brexit

What would you rather have? a million pound debt home or a million pound of credit in the bank?;)

 

Or a million pound out the bank and in an asset that might hold it's value ?

It's a tough call.

Much trouble to come...much worry for anyone with cash.
