Entertainment Hpc Style!

Recommended Posts

If you are bored and want to entertain yourself then try the followign house search site:

House Ladder

It lists houses for sale privately by owner.

I've been mostly entertaining myself by seeing the ridiculous overvaluations (must have valued it themselves) and then using the email/web form link to send the vendor a message along the lines of:

I really love the look of your house, but according to Land Registry data it appears to be advertised at £50K more than any house has ever sold for in that road, or the surrounding roads. If you are serious about selling I'd be very interested in knowing whether you have a more realistic price in mind. I also notice that Nationwide and Halifax have stated that house prices fell in this area by 4-5% between 2004 and 2005 so paying more than the 2004 price (according to Land Registry data... try www.ourproperty.co.uk) does not seem like a good move for me. Thanks in advance for any reply and best of luck with your sale.

My name isn't really robert smith, and I put in an incorrect phone number (local taxi company).... but I hope they'll get the idea.

use one of the free SMS services on the internet to send an SMS to their BT landline number, and they get a message read out by none other than Tom Baker of doctor who fame to tell them they are over priced.

Your house is 100 and 15 thousands pounds over priced. w w w dot house price crash dot co dot uk. Thank You. Tom Baker

I can just imagine their faces when they receive a call from Tom to tell them they are asking too much... how can you argue with Doctor Who... he can visit the future.
