Stagnant Ancedote

Recommended Posts

I have a friend purchased a 3 bed house Brislington area of Bristol in 2003 for £139,995 now just sold but guess

what for £145,000 this is after knocking down kitchen walls making kitchen/dinner brnad new kitchen and generally improving the whole house. So in 3 years they have lost money no sign of a mini boom there.

Brislington is synonymous with "queue" in my mind. Not really an area I'd like to buy in.

I agree not a very nice area

It shouldn't matter if its not a nice area. If prices have gone up so much in the last couple of years, they still would have gone up relatively in that area. People talk all the time about how someone bought an absolute sh*thole located in crack den central and sold it on for huge profit.

why would someone offer so much???

A sub prime candidate no doubt.

I'm reserving judgement until it has SOLD.

I agree it should have risen if prices have but it hasnt they must have lost money because I doubt the £5000

difference would cover the new kitchen etc.

I remember them telling me at the time that it was a bargin and that they would make lots of money on it :blink:
