Btler In Nottingham

Recommended Posts

A colleague I've not seen for a while has just come into the office and has been showing folk the sales bumpf for one of her flats.

It's the one in the 'better' area up next to the castle.

It's a 2-bed (main with ensuite), two floor affair but with no balcony. Asking price is £250,000 so I can only wish her luck.

The sheer madness of this is frightening - if she was inclined to 'BTL' she could get 4 houses for that 5 miles away in Bulwell (which has tram links to the city center). Now whilst I am not saying that this is a good idea - it just shows her folly even more.

Do let us know if she sells it at that price.

Give us a link to a website! I get tired of this anecdotal stuff without any details.

By the way to avoid hypocrisy here's my old apartment for sale 179,995 with the link to sale price (No. 14 and yes I did sell for what I paid for it (185,000). Glad to have got out without taking a loss).

Or rent the apartment next door for 850pcm

She had only just started working with the EA when I saw her (we were looking at the photo spread and description).

I looked for it online at the price she mentioned but couldn't find it so assume she lowered the price...and if I had a spare year or two I'd trawl through the Apartments

For Sale in Nottingham listings on Rightmove and find you your link.

I've just spoken to her again. No luck with selling it. She hasn't even had anyone to look at the place.

And her partner signed on the dotted line two years ago for a (off plan) 3-bed place out at Derby's Pride Park which has just been completed and he is having no luck renting it out.

They are now trying to decide whether to try to rent out the apartment they are in in Nottingham and move to the place in Derby in the hopes of getting some rental coming in.

I live not far away. I would suggest its probably this:

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-117...=7&tr_t=buy

Now on for £239K.

The arena has got a good reputation, but there have been a few on themarket all reducing their asking prices.

Theres others on for £210K, like http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-656...=9&tr_t=buy

The only way is down for these I believe.

Thanks for the links but I'm not sure it's either of those.

If you approach the area from the Standard Hill entrence, her flat is on the ground floor looking out onto the solicitor's offices (since moved out of after they were burgeled) and the small parking area overlooking the castle.

It used to be a nice area but the flats bought a lot of skateboarders, drinkers and drug users into the area cus of the nice, hidden alleyways and cars to break into.

I love the smell of burning fingers in the morning!

Yep there is a shocking over-supply of flats in Nottingham from the unlimited former industrial sites,best left alone as are the cheaper areas like Bulwell and the Broxtowe estate(adjoining Bulwell).Walked across the latter yesterday and felt a bit disspirited it really is the ultimate in unfettered white chav culture.Loud music emanating from houses,litter,graffiti,smashed bottles,tough looking women,kids riding the streets on motorbikes as young as five with no helmets onThe only comfort is the police patrolling on bikes with stab vests ons.

The trouble with areas like the Broxtowe estate is it doesn't get any better. I am sure the other usual suspects must have in the Chamber of Horrors...Lazelles,Blackbird Leys,Toxteth etc.
