A New "comedy Pricing Thread"

Recommended Posts

Been on sale for as long as I've been looking, reduced from £225K to £199,950 ish:

Property 1

Just come on sale in last few days:

Property 2

What a bargain... you could overpay by £75K for what sounds like the same house (new build development so they are likely near identical).

What do these vendors expect?? Charity?

And who valued the place?? Stevie Wonder?

Try these...

550K to live in a one-bed flat.

Or this...

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-109...pa_n=2&tr_t=buy

495K for a one-bedder above a sandwich shop.

Both, incidentally, are near my office in Soho. Had to smile at the description of a "vibrant village in the heart of the West End". "Babylon" would have been more accurate :D

Only £1/2 million? I'll take them both then :unsure::unsure:

I like this one. Beautiful house, but didn't sell last year for £2.75m :blink: - so what do they do? That's right kids, let's add a cool £500,000 to the price - that'll shift it. :lol: (it probably will too :( )

Lovely house though

What it doesn't tell you is that it's about 30 yards from a very popular pub that has people drinking outside it pretty much all the time from May til October.

I decided to sell up

Have we seen this before somewhere?? :blink:

OMG that's the most vulgar piece of real estate I've ever seen. Who on earth is going to buy that? :o

Maybe we could all club together to buy it and form an HPC commune. I'm sure Nationwide would let us have it on our collective earnings. We could have social meetings in the bowling alley :blink:

Lets put the UK market in perspective. For roughly the price of a one bed flat above a sandwich shop, you can have this :angry:

As for the 495k to live above Subway in Soho.

Just think for a moment about who would want easy access to the pubs and clubs of Compton street on a 24 hour basis...

then you will see why, for a certain type of person, it would be money "gladly" spent.

I've seen other ads for property in the area which are more explicit about the "bonuses" of having an easily accesible pillow nearby.

At least they are in central London. How about this in SW17 (Tooting Bec, 8 miles from London. Ranges from average to grotty).

Pimp pad

oh, no takers, so cut the price: Cut Price Pimp Pad!

The average 2 bed in this area sells for £250k-£300k.

Why would you bother, when in the same area you can have:

4 bed house

or

7 bed house

Of course, they are ALL ridiculously overpriced. But some more so than others, it seems! :lol:

How about a 2,500 sq detached 4 bedroom with double garage on ½ an acre in North Carolina, for $234,000 (£134,000) and that’s the price during a national housing bubble in the US so I’m sure you could negotiate a few grand off.

Cheap as chips?

In London, that would probably cost £1-2m in a suburb. Rest of UK, at least £400k I would guess. I think it is because we are a small island with no land to spare for housing our citizens.
