Can you buy? Yes. Would you buy? Probably not.

What can a first-time buyer in the South East buy for less than £250,000?

Amusing article which tries to put a brave face on the prospect of escaping stamp duty by paying a quarter of a million quid for a rabbit hutch in Uxbridge.

    I’m in the Shite East and this article is dead on. A 2 bed around here will set you back at least £180k but they aren’t selling very fast. My neighbour’s house has been on the market for more than 2 years now as still hasn’t sold even though it’s currently on the market at 2.5% below what they paid in 2005.

    Oh, but it’s “worth it” because they’ve spent £20k redecorating it to their weird specifications.

  • I live in London – they found a nice looking, but very small*, flat on Askew Rd. Dodgy area if you ask me. I wouldn’t want to fork out £1/4m on that.
    * “The two main rooms are of a reasonable size” – well one is pictured and it looks pretty small to me.

    “In case you were wondering, the flat is ‘nestled between the vibrant regeneration of Deptford and the cosmopolitan lifestyle of New Cross’ – which basically translates as ‘halfway between a knocked-down council estate and a kebab’. ”

    Ha ha, that is also spot on!

  • Any article that gives Macclesfield a mention gets my vote, although the inference that it is part of the Labour hearlands is rather wide of the mark.
