a bit too much me thinks

  • That’s still insanely cheap. £56,500 per house – when neighbouring houses are advertised at £200,000+. I understand they need some work doing, but surely not £150,000 worth?!

  • Maybe to many actors who went to the school of Bad acting have devalued the close?

  • Well it is a long way from the £300k the previous owner thought they would fetch, just 81% below asking price!

  • Actually maybe they aren’t that overvalued. Looking at how much nearby houses were sold for, earlier this decade detached houses were selling for £67,000 – £94,000. Now it really depends how much work needs doing on them. Having said that, labour costs in Liverpool should be pretty low.
